When Temperatures Drop, It’s a Great Time to Replace Your AC!
Outdoor temperatures have started to fall, so you don’t need to run your air conditioning system very often, if at all. This is the perfect opportunity to replace an outdated air conditioner. Air conditioning systems that are ten years old or older are more likely to fail when you really need them, so don’t wait until your system has broken down completely. Upgrade today when the weather is cool, and get better efficiency and performance from your new unit!
Here’s what you should know!
Work with quality technicians
The great thing about replacing your AC system when you don’t really need to use it is that you have plenty of time to select the right system and the right person for the job. The right technician will guide you through the entire installation process, from removal of the old system to the final inspection. Read online reviews, check accreditations, and ask for references if you want to be sure you are working with technicians who truly care about the well-being of their customers.
Price isn’t everything
Too many homeowners select the technician who quotes the lowest price for an installation, without realizing that there is usually a reason the price quote is so low. An honest technician may not be able to give you an estimate until they can measure the space in your home. But this way, you can feel confident that your air conditioner is accurately sized and installed so that you can feel confident it will operate properly. Besides, a low-price system is usually much less efficient.
Compare efficiency ratings and other features
The higher the SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) of the system, the more energy efficient it will be, which means that you can save a lot more money in the long run. You can also look at additional features like variable speed blowers, which also increase efficiency and may help to reduce noise. And you can research optional add-ins, like zone control for better whole-home comfort and control.
