Air Conditioning Replacements

new AC unit being installedWhen it is time to replace your air conditioner, you will certainly notice the energy saving benefits. This is especially the case if your air conditioner is ten or more years old. When your system is 25 years or more, then it uses twice the amount of energy compared to a new system. So, when you replace your outdated unit, you will save quite a bit of money on energy costs!

One factor to take into consideration when replacing your unit is the fact that your unit needs to be properly sized. A unit that is too big or too small will result in poor operation and expensive energy costs. Many homeowners think that bigger is better but this is definitely not true. An over-sized system cycles more often, creates a cool but humid home, and creates more wear and tear on the system. Your unit has to be a matched system.

AC Installation

The most important aspect of purchasing a new air conditioning system is how it is installed. Adequate installation and sizing makes up 75% of its energy efficiency, reliability, and performance. When you spend as much money as you do on a new system, it is vital that you get the right system and an installation job that allows your system to meet your needs.

When the installation day arrives, many homeowners question what to expect for an air conditioner replacement. Our team will review the work that they will do and they will discuss any special instructions that you may need to follow. We always wear protective shoe covers to ensure that we keep your home as clean as possible. We also utilize drop cloths to protect your carpets and floors. We want your home to be just as beautiful after we have conducted the install.

The first step usually involves disconnecting your old unit and removing any of the refrigerant from it. When the old unit is removed, then the area is cleaned to prepare it for a new system. Next, we will bring in any tools that are required to conduct a successful install. Your old system is disassembled in order to fit your new system. Then, we install your new system using the manufacturer's specifications. If there are any electrical upgrades for your unit to perform well, we will conduct it at this point in time. After the installation is completed, we make sure that your system works optimally. It is thoroughly inspected. We flush out old lines before adding any more coolant to it. Pressure tests and vacuum tests are conducted to ensure that your system performs effectively. This also tests for energy efficiency. After this is completed, then we will discuss your system with you so that you know how to operate it. We will also show you how to program your thermostat and how to change the filters on your new air conditioner.

Second Opinion For Replacing An Air Conditioner

When your system is acting up, it will need the attention of an experienced HVAC technician. Sometimes, contractors are quick to tell you that you need to replace your air conditioner. However, this is not always the case. There are few factors to consider before you spend thousands of dollars on a new air conditioning system. Getting a second opinion is always beneficial.

One of the factors that you should consider after you have been told that you need a new AC is the age of your unit. They typically last between 12 to 15 years. If your unit is older than that, then it is time to replace your system. An older system does not perform as well and it is not as energy efficient. You will make up for the cost of a new system by having reduced home cooling costs. You want a system that provides the comfort that you and your family need at a reasonable price. Be sure that you find a reputable HVAC company to install your system. The benefits of a new system are not realized if it is not installed properly. You need a company that will instruct you on good brands of air conditioners as well as suggest improvements on energy efficiency.
