Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with thorough AC maintenance, the time arises when every air conditioner should be replaced. We understand that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time comes, 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 searching for a new air conditioner, there are several factors to keep in mind and we’ll help you navigate them all to choose the system that will be best for your house and your budget.

One feature everyone 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 a few other important factors to consider:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the correct 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 costs upfront. But, a smaller system can create more costs in the long run if it’s too small to keep your indoor space cool. It will run consistently to try to keep up and will have a significantly shortened life. You’ll pay more on energy bills during its life and you’ll discover 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. Select 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 greater the efficiency.
  • Look for a good warranty. We can help you choose 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 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.
