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 know that annual maintenance will lengthen an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the experts at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Moline. When you’re searching for a new air conditioner, there are a lot of factors to think about and we’ll help you navigate them all to select the system that will be best 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 will give you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are a few other important factors to think about:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the appropriate 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 shortening its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a smaller system to save some money 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 endlessly 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 find yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you want. We can help you decide the appropriate sized air conditioner for your home.
  • Ratings matter. Select 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. Many times, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you acquire a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
