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 know that annual maintenance will lengthen an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the pros at Farnell Mechanical, Inc. will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Opelika. 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 perfect for your home and your budget. One feature everybody looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Selecting 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 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 decreasing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a littler system to save some money upfront. However, a smaller system can cost you more 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 significantly shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility costs during its life and you’ll catch yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you want. 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 realize the payback every month on your energy bills. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the better 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 usually 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 acquire a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
