Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

Even with careful AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner should be replaced. We understand that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time comes, the pros 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 shopping for a new air conditioner, there are several factors to consider and we’ll help you navigate them all to select the system that will be appropriate for your house and your budget.

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

  • 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, leading to wear and tear on your new system and decreasing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a littler 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 significantly 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. Select the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll get the payback every month on your utility bills. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the superior 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 usually 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. Often, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you buy a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
