Our No-Pressure Sales Process and Fixed-Price Quotes
With Knight there is no pressure to buy something that’s more than you need or to rush your decision. We send a qualified service technician to your home to make an evaluation, learn about your preferences, and recommend a system to you. He includes factors like those we list below. The technician does not earn a sales commission, he’s just there to help you figure out the best model for your needs.
Your price quote is all-inclusive, with costs for installation, any related parts or work, and removal of your old unit (if any). There is no additional hourly rates or any guesswork to do.
Once you have your quote, you get a 30-day window to think about it and feel confident in your decision.
How to Get the Right Central Air Conditioning System for Your Home
Here are some key factors to consider when choosing a system:
- Your home’s square footage should be matched to the system. It might sound like a good idea to get the most powerful system around, or to save and get a small one. A system that is too small won’t cool your home. A system that is too big will be working inefficiently all the time, costing you more in energy bills. It will also leave a lot of humidity in your house, potentially leading to mould or other damage. You have to get the right size for your home. To find out what you need, you can try the sizing chart here.
- The SEER rating. SEER stands for seasonal energy efficiency rating. The higher the SEER number, the more energy efficient it is – Knight recommends that you go no lower than 13 (they currently go up to 24.5).
- Is it Energy Star rated? Energy Star systems work more efficiently and will save you money on electricity.
- What are your noise requirements? The condensing unit of a central air conditioning system sits outside your home, but some units can be heard through the ductwork. If quiet operation is important to you, make sure your Knight technician is aware of this.
- Do you need different cooling zones in your home? The rooms of your home that are south-facing will require more work to cool than north facing ones. Having multiple thermostats that can control different temperature zones will make for a uniform temperature throughout your home.
- Budgeting. For many of us, the cost of a new AC is important, and may be more important than energy efficiency.
