Newer systems may use less than half the electricity of an older system, depending on its age. In 2010, air conditioner manufacturers were required to discontinue the use of chlorofluorocarbon refrigerant, which depletes the Earth’s ozone layer. Today, units are exponentially more Earth-friendly and safe for you and your family. What’s more, decade-old air conditioning units tend to have a lower Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), and newer models will have a minimum SEER rating of 13, increasing your home energy savings. These are all reasons to get excited about a new air conditioning unit in your home!
Though the up-front costs of most energy-efficient air conditioning unit models are premium compared to standard models on the market, they tend to pay for themselves over time. It’s also important to consider what size unit your home requires, since too big of a unit may fail to adequately dehumidify your home and too small of a unit may not cool your home fast enough. Larger units cycle air more throughout the day, which can result in unnecessary costs for the homeowner. Our experts weigh details like your home’s insulation thickness, windows, attic space, basement space, and more to choose the right unit for you.
But the replacement process doesn’t have to stop at your air conditioning unit. Consider a home’s duct system when completing the air conditioner replacement process. Our HVAC technicians can easily identify and fix any leaks in your home’s duct system. Sometimes, re-sealing vents that need attention and performing maintenance on your system are useful before deciding when and how to replace your air conditioning unit. After all, depending on your home’s age and general condition, that extra step of general system maintenance will allow your new unit to run more smoothly in the future.
If you have a larger home or are concepting your dream home, consider a zone cooling system when weighing the options for air conditioner replacement. Many homes have rooms with varying cooling needs, and if you don’t have to cool your entire home all the time, why should you pay for it? These systems often require more than one thermostat, which is a feature that often gets updated with an air conditioner replacement. As a company with decades of experience under our tool belts, our experts favor installing digital, programmable thermostat models. These updated thermostats allow you to schedule the various cycles your cooling system performs throughout the day and easily control temperatures.
