Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner06/01/2017Even with careful AC maintenance, the time comes when every air conditioner will need replaced. We understand that annual maintenance will lengthen an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the team at Alan Heating Air Conditioning, Inc. will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Elmhurst. When you’re shopping for a new air conditioner, there are many factors to keep in mind and we’ll help you navigate them all to select the system that will be best for your residence and your budget. One feature everybody looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Choosing the right AC and keeping it well-maintained will give you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are some other important factors to think about: Make sure your AC replacement is the appropriate size for your home. A system that is larger than necessary will cycle on and off too frequently, leading to wear and tear on your new system and reducing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a smaller system to save some money upfront. However, 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 energy bills during its life and you’ll find 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 find an air conditioner replacement with a great warranty, and we offer the maintenance service that’s typically 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 buy a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
