Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

Even with thorough AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner needs to be replaced. We know that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the team at PWA Heating & Cooling Inc will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Plainfield. When you’re looking for a new air conditioner, there are many factors to keep in mind and we’ll help you navigate them all to find the system that will be best for your house and your budget.

One feature everybody looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Choosing the right AC and keeping it well-maintained offers you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are several other important factors to consider:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the correct size for your home. A system that is too large 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 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 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 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. 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 superior 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 usually needed to keep that warranty valid.
  • Rebates and incentives are always nice. We will keep you in the 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.
