Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

Even with thorough AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner should be replaced. We know that annual maintenance will lengthen an AC’s lifespan, but when the time arises, the experts at Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Greater Richmond. When you’re shopping for a new air conditioner, there are several factors to consider and we’ll help you navigate them all to find the system that will be appropriate for your home and your budget.

One feature everybody looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Choosing 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 too big will cycle on and off too frequently, resulting in wear and tear on your new system and shortening its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a littler 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 house cool. It will run continuously to try to keep up and will have a noticeably shortened life. You’ll pay more on energy bills during its life and you’ll discover yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you would prefer. We can help you determine 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 energy bills. 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 keep you in the loop about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Many times, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you buy a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
