Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with thorough AC maintenance, the time arises when every air conditioner needs to be replaced. We know that annual maintenance will lengthen an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the experts at AC Sales will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Lafayette. When you’re searching for a new air conditioner, there are many factors to consider and we’ll help you navigate them all to select the system that will be appropriate for your residence and your budget.

One feature everyone looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Choosing 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 think about:

  • 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, 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 money upfront. Nonetheless, a smaller system can cost you more in the long run if it’s too small to keep your home cool. It will run endlessly to try to keep up and will have a markedly 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 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 get the payback every month on your energy costs. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the better the efficiency.
  • Look for a good warranty. We can help you select 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 know 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.
