2022 Best Air Conditioners | Hamilton Home Comfort

Spread the love

Do you retreat to your bedroom during the hot, humid days of summer because it’s the only room in your home with an air conditioning unit? 

Does the noise of your window unit keep you awake at night? 

Do you or one of your family members suffer from asthma or allergies?

These are only a handful of the reasons it may be time to consider installing a central air conditioning system. 

Installing a central air condition system decreases the allergens in your home and improves the air quality. It makes the environment less hospitable for insects and parasites and the growth of mold. A central air conditioning unit runs quietly, helps you sleep better, cools multiple rooms at the same time, and improves the value of your home.

The professionals at Hamilton Home Comfort would be happy to discuss your needs and install an air conditioning system that will keep you and your family cool during the remaining days of summer and early fall and will be ready when the spring and summer days—and nights—turn warm once again.

We at Hamilton Home Comfort are also equipped for all your air conditioner service and repair needs.

Buying an Air Conditioner

When looking for the best air conditioner to meet your specific needs, you’ll want to consider the size of the unit you need, the efficiency of the unit, what is required to maintain it for optimum performance, and if the air conditioner is operated by a programmable thermostat. We at Hamilton Home Comfort can help you choose the best option for your home, keeping all these factors in mind.

We’ll also help you understand the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) of the unit you select. Think of it as the cooling output of your air conditioner compared to the energy required to run the unit. The higher the SEER, the better.

And just why do central air systems operate so quietly? A split unit air conditioner consists of two separate units: the water- or air-cooled condensing unit and the air handling unit. This technology is one of the reasons these systems run quietly, many between 70 and 75 dBA, approximately the volume of normal conversation. 

Hamilton Home Comfort carries a wide range of the best air conditioners on the market, including York, Goodman, and Lennox models.

York builds a wide variety of efficient, affordable air conditioning units. 

The York LX Series split system air conditioners fit your needs with efficient models that reduce your utility bills. Coil options include an advanced MicroChannel coil for a smaller footprint—vital for our environment—and a proven tube-in-fin coil with enhanced aluminum fins mechanically bonded to copper tubing. Like other York air conditioners, they are tested in the company’s accelerated-wear test facility and are optimized for Canadian and Northern US climates.

The York YCG unit has up to a 17 SEER and saves 41 cents per dollar versus the older 10 SEER system. There are single- and three-phase models available. The MicroChannel Coil, made from an improved alloy, gives better performance in a smaller space. 

The 13 SEER cooling efficiency of the YCD unit saves 23 cents per dollar versus the older 10 SEER system. This unit, too, has been optimized for Canadian and Northern US climates. As with the YCG units, there are single- and 3-phase models available. 

Hamilton Home Comfort also carries, installs, services, and repairs air conditioners manufactured by Goodman Air Conditioning and Heating. Goodman has manufactured quality air conditioning units since 1982. Although they may not be familiar to you, we’re well aware of the Goodman brand and respect how they have placed an effort on engineering and designing dependable products. Dependability is of prime importance to us.

Both the Goodman GSX13 R-410A and GSX16 R-410A air conditioners are constructed with sound-dampening features to ensure that your cooling system doesn’t interfere with a restful sleep or your day-to-day activities. The GSX16 R-410A has a higher SEER rating and will save you even more money than units with a lower SEER.

We at Hamilton Home Comfort also highly recommend Lennox air conditioners. These units are reliable, well made, and easy to maintain. They are among the best air conditioners you can have installed, and we have several to choose from.

One of the most energy-efficient air conditioning systems on the market, the Lennox XC25 air conditioner has been referred to as “the finest variable-capacity air conditioner that Lennox makes.” This ultra-quiet system can be controlled from your laptop, tablet, or smartphone with the use of iComfort® s30 technology. This unit is also solar-ready. The future is now!  

The Lennox XC21 air conditioner also comes with iComfort®-enabled technology to make use of the programmable iComfort WiFi touchscreen thermostat. This unit has a SEER of up to 21 and a 10-year limited warranty on the covered components, including the compressor. It saves customers over 50 percent of the cost of an air conditioner with a SEER of 10.

The Lennox XC20 Elite® has a SEER of up to 20 and a sound level as low as 65 dB. The unit comes with a 10-year limited warranty on the compressor, a 5-year limited warranty on the covered components. Plus, it may also be eligible for an additional 10-year limited extended warranty with product registration. 

If you’re looking for an air conditioner with an efficiency rating of up to 17 SEER, one that can save you hundreds of dollars every year, the best-selling Lennox EL16XC1 may be what you’re looking for. It is 60 percent more efficient than standard air conditioners and may qualify for energy rebates. The compressor in the EL16XC1 has a sound-dampening system that ensures quiet operation. The baked-on powder finish on the heavy-gauge galvanized steel cabinet provides long-lasting protection against corrosion. It’s easy to see why this is one of our best-sellers.

With its high-efficiency outdoor coil, you get the most efficient use of your energy for cooling your house with the Lennox Merit Series 14ACX air conditioner. This unit is designed for durability with the same construction as the EL16XC1. A louvered coil guard protects the high-efficiency outdoor coil from what the fluctuating Canadian climate throws at it.

The economical Lennox Merit® series 13ACX home air conditioner combines value and efficiency. This unit is designed for long-lasting durability both inside and out and will save you an average of 23 percent on your energy bill. The cabinet is made from the same heavy-gauge galvanized steel with a baked-on powder finish and the coil is protected from the elements by the same louvered coil guard as more expensive models. 

The XC16 Elite® series air conditioner has a SEER rating of up to 17 and operates as low as 71 dB. Like other units, it has a 10-year limited warranty on the compressor and a 5-year limited warranty on the covered components. It, too, may be eligible for the 10-year limited extended warranty. 

Hamilton Home Comfort can help you decide what air conditioning system is right for you, whatever the size of your home, whatever the size of your budget.
