Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

Even with thorough AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner needs to be replaced. We comprehend that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time arises, the pros at Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in West Columbia. When you’re searching for a new air conditioner, there are a lot of factors to consider 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. Selecting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained should give you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are a few other important factors to take into consideration:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the correct 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 expenses 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. Find the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll see 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 find 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 keep you in the loop about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Many times, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you buy a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
