Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with careful AC maintenance, the time comes when every air conditioner should be replaced. We know that annual maintenance will lengthen an AC’s lifespan, but when the time arises, the pros at Hopper Heating and Air will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Shelby. When you’re searching for a new air conditioner, there are a lot of factors to think about and we’ll help you navigate them all to choose the system that will be best for your residence and your budget.

One feature everyone looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Selecting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained should give you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are some other important factors to consider:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the correct 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 shortening its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a small system to save some expenses upfront. However, a smaller system can create more costs in the long run if it’s too small to keep your home cool. It will run continuously to try to keep up and will have a significantly shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility bills 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 see the payback every month on your energy costs. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the greater 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 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. Often, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you buy a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
