Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with thorough AC maintenance, the time arises when every air conditioner will need replaced. We understand that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time comes, the experts at Watts Electric & A/C Inc will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Columbia. When you’re searching for a new air conditioner, there are several factors to consider and we’ll help you navigate them all to choose the system that will be perfect for your home and your budget.

One feature all of us look for in an AC replacement is dependability. Getting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained offers you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are several other important factors to think about:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the appropriate size for your home. A system that is too big will cycle on and off too frequently, which can lead to wear and tear on your new system and reducing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a small system to save some money upfront. Nonetheless, a smaller system can create more costs in the long run if it’s too small to keep your home cool. It will run consistently to try to keep up and will have a noticeably shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility bills during its life and you’ll catch 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. 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 let you know about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Often, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you purchase a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
