Central Air Conditioning Solutions for Greater Atlanta Homeowners
Central air requires refrigerant to move heat from inside your home to the outside. When the refrigerant changes from a liquid to a vapor, it lets off heat.
The evaporator coil in your HVAC system gets cooled when this happens. A blower in your central AC’s air handler forces warm air through the evaporator, where it gets cooled. The air then enters your ductwork, which distributes it throughout your home.
When your central AC gets more than 12 years old, replacing it with a newer model begins to make sense. You could cut your cooling costs by 30% or more. You could also get even more comfortable cooling throughout your entire home.
SEER Measures Efficiency – How to Understand It
“SEER,” or seasonal energy efficiency ratio, describes the efficiency of your central AC system. With a unit more than 12 years old, you likely have a SEER of 10 or less. Today, units with a rating of 16 or more are common and affordable, with 21 being the best you can find. If you upgrade a central AC with a seer of 10 to 16, that’s an instant increase of 60% in energy savings!
But, you can increase those even further because most homes in Atlanta have more opportunities for energy savings beyond simply replacing the central AC system. Your home may also benefit from air sealing its envelope, adding insulation, aerosealing ductwork, and installing a radiant barrier in your attic. You could easily increase your energy savings an additional 50%.

Many homes with central AC use a standard “split” system. This means you have an outdoor unit sitting on a concrete pad, with a separate indoor unit connected to the ductwork. The interior of your central AC also includes a drain line to remove the moisture that condenses out of your home’s interior air as your central AC cools it.
A dual-mode heat pump can also cool your home. Then, when heating season begins, you simply set the refrigerant cycle to reverse so your home gets help staying warm. Heat pumps provide highly efficient heating and cooling in warm climates like ours where temperatures stay above 38° most of the year.
