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 understand that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the team at Rescue Heating & Air will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Alice. When you’re looking for a new air conditioner, there are a lot of factors to consider and we’ll help you navigate them all to select the system that will be best 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 several other important factors to take into consideration:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the correct size for your home. A system that is too big will cycle on and off too frequently, leading to wear and tear on your new system and reducing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a small system to save some expenses upfront. Nonetheless, a smaller system can create more costs 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 energy bills during its life and you’ll find 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. Look for the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll see the payback every month on your utility 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 usually 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 buy a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
