Lot of times people call us and state they want an air conditioner under $1000 for a house that is 1500 sq ft. This is always the worst way to go about buying an air conditioner. Firstly you need to determine the right size Btu's for your room. Every room is different in many ways. Keys is to buy the right size, which is exmplained in our next article. Once you know your btu's for each room(s) you can choose the lg air conditioner system based on features, SEER and package deals.


Which Brand is the best?

We receive calls from confused consumers every single day not knowing which brand to buy. With so many different brands out there it does get confusing. Simple way to choose a brand is to start with checking out your requirement first, then browse through our comparison charts and compare the features you would like in your house air conditioner. Based on all this you can finally narrow it down to three brands. Then investigate which one has best package deal, who has the better warranty and of course if two brands provide similar packages and same warranty then it comes down to who has the better price. PLEASE DO NOT go for system unit that is $100 cheap but has less features or poor SEER rating. It is never worth it. We have had customers who ended up buying SEER 13 product for $100 cheaper, when SEER 16 was available with low ambient operation.

But they ended up spending $175 later in winter to buy the backup electric heater, as the standard SEER 13 would not produce heat when the outside temperature goes below 15 deg. In short if you buy a high SEER AC unit, with inverter technology and in-built low ambient feature, you pay more today, but it is your cheaper option in the long run, as you save $20-$60 approximately every month on electrical bills. Plus they work lot better than your regular standard units with lot more advanced features. Remember higher the SEER is more energy efficient the unit is. At the same time if you are buying this for just a guest room or a game room or a spare room where it will be used occassionally, you don't have to overspend on big brands.

If price is not a big concern, we rate Mitsubishi, LG, GREE and YMGI units as THE BEST in the industry. YMGI comes with complete package deal. Normally 25 ft of copper linesets for each indoor units you buy. Get more information about the ductless heat pump
