An air conditioner is a big investment for most homeowners. Before making a purchase decision, homeowners should take the time to learn about the best brands out there and what they offer.
Here are the top five brands homeowners should consider when purchasing an A/C in 2021.
- American Standard
American Standard air conditioners have energy efficiency ratings that range between 13 SEER and 22 SEER. The cost to install a 14 SEER American Standard A/C unit could range anywhere from $3,575 to $6,178. For many homeowners, the investment is worth it since they’ll have to make far fewer repairs, compared to other brands.
Slightly more expensive than American Standard, a 14 SEER Carrier Comfort Series A/C would cost $4,892-$7,224 to install. Homeowners have many options to choose from and can expect to find exactly what they need. Compared to other A/C brands, Carrier repairs are fairly affordable. The company also offers a comprehensive warranty of up to 10 years.
Homeowners on a tighter budget often choose Goodman, and can expect to pay between $3,188 and $4,275 in total installation costs. Goodman A/Cs are smart home compatible and available in 13-18 SEER efficiency ratings.
Trane central air conditioners offer low running costs and come in 14-18.5 SEER energy efficiency ratings. For installation, homeowners can expect to pay $3,267-$6,100. Trane is a premium brand known for offering exceptional quality air conditioners, heat pumps, and gas furnaces.
Rheem air conditioners are a budget friendly option for homeowners who want high quality at an affordable price.
