Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with thorough AC maintenance, the time arises when every air conditioner will need replaced. We know that annual maintenance will prolong an AC’s lifespan, but when the time arises, the team at Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in McMurray. When you’re shopping for a new air conditioner, there are several factors to think about and we’ll help you navigate them all to find 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. Choosing the right AC and keeping it well-maintained will give you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are several other important factors to consider:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the appropriate size for your home. A system that is larger than necessary will cycle on and off too frequently, leading to wear and tear on your new system and shortening its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a small system to save some expenses upfront. However, a smaller system can result in increased expenses in the long run if it’s too small to keep your house cool. It will run continuously to try to keep up and will have a noticeably shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility costs during its life and you’ll discover yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you would prefer. We can help you choose 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 choose 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 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.
