Summertime in Denver is notoriously hot and dry. With more sunshine days than Miami or San Diego and a dry climate that is more like the desert, the weather is predictably bright and the mercury often hovers in the high eighties and nineties. Having a reliable A/C system to keep you and your family cool is a must in Denver – and choosing a reliable brand is the key to your long-term comfort and energy savings.
The most popular air conditioner brands in Denver tend to be the most efficient. Many of the most high-efficiency units also offer attractive rebates, making the decision super easy to make.
But if you were ever wondering which brands are the most popular, here’s a brief rundown of the top five to help you narrow your choices:
Rheem is a quality manufacturer of home air conditioning systems. Their most popular central air models feature average SEER ratings of 17. Their compressors are powerful enough that you can run them all season long and they will continue to deliver reliable, quiet comfort. Though Denver is not known for its humidity, Rheem is one of the best units for dehumidifying. They can be controlled through a smartphone app and feature a highly detailed diagnostic system to help detect problems.
A popular value-priced brand, York offers great performance and affordability. Their units are Energy Star certified and feature SEER ratings between 13 and 18, depending on the model. While they may not have some of the more advanced features other brands offer their Affinity™ Wi-Fi Residential Communicating Control more than makes up for it: their Wi-Fi-enabled 6-zone smart thermostat will help you cut your energy bills and allow you to program and control your entire home through a smartphone or iPad app.
Carrier brand A/C units use a two-stage system to regulate the airflow in your home. They are more durable than many other comparable brands and feature SEER ratings that range from 13 to 21 SEER. Like most other modern units, they have the ability to be programmed and controlled from your smartphone or smart thermostat. Their two-stage compressors are great for cooling as well as controlling humidity. What they lack in bells and whistles they more than make up for durability.
Daikin systems are used in over 140 countries. With over 90 years in business, Daikin has continued to provide the industry with leading-edge technology to create enhanced efficiency, design, and reliability. Boasting numerous international awards and certifications in performance, customer service, and efficiency, a Daikin air conditioner will prove to be a solid choice for your Denver home.
