Air Conditioner Buyer’s Guide


If you are thinking about installing a new air conditioner in your Ohio home, you may feel lost or somewhat confused because of all the options that are available. Buying an air conditioner is a big purchase and is similar to buying a car—it’s a financial investment that takes regular maintenance and upkeep.

At Kellermeier, we understand that buying an air conditioner is a big deal—which is why we put together several things to consider before you make the purchase. Read below to learn more!

What to Consider Before Buying an Air Conditioner

  1. Your HVAC contractor. Buying a new central air conditioning unit means you have to go through a contractor who will purchase the unit from the dealer and install the unit—unfortunately, installing a new AC isn’t a DIY project. When selecting your HVAC contractor, look for a company that is licensed, has years of experience, and carries a reputable brand of air conditioning units. The most important day of your AC’s life is the day it’s installed. So, make sure your HVAC contractor is reputable and professional.
  2. The size of your home. Homes in the Toledo area come in all shapes and sizes—some are single one bedroom town-homes and some are six bedroom large family homes. For obvious reasons, an air conditioner meant for a one bedroom home would not function as well in a large six bedroom home. When you hire a professional contractor, he or she will know which unit will work efficiently in your sized home.
  3. Your budget. Air conditioners come in all shapes, sizes, and efficiently levels. When purchasing a new air conditioner, ensure you communicate with your contractor a comfortable budget you would like to stick to. That way, you and your contractor can work together to find an air conditioner you are happy with.
  4. Warranty availability. Because a new central air conditioner is an investment, you want to protect it. Annual maintenance and warranties are two ways to protect your air conditioner and to have it live to its full potential.
