Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with diligent AC maintenance, the time arises when every air conditioner needs to be replaced. We know that annual maintenance will lengthen an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the experts at Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Anchorage. When you’re looking for a new air conditioner, there are several factors to keep in mind and we’ll help you navigate them all to select the system that will be perfect for your house and your budget.

One feature everybody looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Getting 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 decreasing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a smaller system to save some costs 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 markedly shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility bills during its life and you’ll find yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you’d like. We can help you decide 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 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. Many times, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you purchase a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
