Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with careful AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner needs to be replaced. We understand that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time comes, the experts at Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Carpentersville. When you’re shopping for a new air conditioner, there are a lot of factors to keep in mind and we’ll help you navigate them all to select the system that will be appropriate for your house and your budget.

One feature all of us look for in an AC replacement is dependability. Selecting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained offers 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 decreasing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a small system to save some costs upfront. But, a smaller system can result in increased expenses in the long run if it’s too small to keep your indoor space cool. It will run continuously to try to keep up and will have a noticeably shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility bills during its life and you’ll catch yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you want. 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 realize 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 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. Regularly, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you buy a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
