Is It Time for a New Air Conditioner?
A new air conditioner is a major investment, so it’s important to consider the timing of this purchase carefully. We’re happy to inspect your current system and provide an honest evaluation. In some cases, it may be better to schedule an air conditioning repair or maintenance visit to extend the life of your installation. However, you’ll likely want to consider a new air conditioner if:
- Your system is over 10 years old
- You’re experiencing frequent repair needs
- You want to dramatically improve your comfort or energy efficiency
- Your current system is not properly sized for the home
- You’re still using R22 refrigerant
- You’re not comfortable in your home
How to Choose Your Next AC System
There’s a lot to consider when you’re choosing a new air conditioner. Most homeowners will only deal with this type of purchase every 10 or 15 years. In that time, the latest technology and features can change dramatically. That’s why our service technicians always keep a finger to the pulse of the HVAC industry. We’re equipped to provide expert recommendations and knowledgeable explanations so you can navigate your options wisely. Some things to consider include:
- Your energy efficiency goals
- The size and layout of your home
- Your budget
- The specs of your current system compared to new options you’re considering
- Whether you have existing ductwork
- What level of home comfort you’re looking for
Our AC Installation Process
As part of our installation process, we have a service technician inspect your home. We’ll take a look at your current air conditioner so we can let you know how the energy efficiency of a new system will compare to what you currently have. We also size your home using Manual J calculations to ensure that your new air conditioner is neither too large nor too small for the space.
