Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with careful AC maintenance, the time comes when every air conditioner should be replaced. We understand that annual maintenance will prolong an AC’s lifespan, but when the time arises, the experts at Home Comfort Heating & Air will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Elk River. When you’re looking for a new air conditioner, there are a lot of factors to keep in mind and we’ll help you navigate them all to choose the system that will be perfect for your house and your budget.

One feature everybody looks 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 some other important factors to consider:

  • 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, resulting in wear and tear on your new system and decreasing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a littler 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 energy bills during its life and you’ll catch yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you’d like. We can help you determine the appropriate sized air conditioner for your home.
  • Ratings matter. Find the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll get the payback every month on your energy bills. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the better 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 regularly 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. Often, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you acquire a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
