When you’re looking for a new air conditioner, there are many factors to think about and we’ll help you navigate them all to select the system that will be perfect for your residence and your budget. One feature all of us look for in an AC replacement is dependability. Getting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained will give you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are some other important factors to take into consideration: Make sure your AC replacement is the right size for your home. A system that is larger than necessary will cycle on and off too frequently, which can lead to wear and tear on your new system and reducing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a smaller system to save some money upfront. Nonetheless, a smaller system can create more costs in the long run if it’s too small to keep your indoor space cool. It will run continuously to try to keep up and will have a significantly shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility bills during its life and you’ll discover yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you would prefer. We can help you decide the appropriate sized air conditioner for your home. Ratings matter. Look for the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll realize the payback every month on your energy costs. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the superior the efficiency. Look for a good warranty. We can help you select an air conditioner replacement with a great warranty, and we offer the maintenance service that’s typically needed to keep that warranty valid. Rebates and incentives are always nice. We will let you know about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Often, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you purchase a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
