It’s as Easy as 1…2…3!

Just follow these simple steps and you’ll be well on your way to a more efficient and effective air conditioner:

Step One: Replacing Your Old AC

The first step in installing a new air conditioner is knowing when to replace your current system. There are a number of signs that suggest it’s time for a replacement. Consider replacing your AC if:

  • It’s Old: Although built to last, the average lifespan of an AC is anywhere between 10–15 years. If your system has aged beyond this average life expectancy, it might be time for a replacement.
  • It Requires Frequent Repair: In general, your AC should not require more than just a couple of repairs every few years. If you’ve found yourself paying 50% or more the cost of a new AC on repairs, it’s better just to invest in a new system.
  • It’s Costing You More Money: If you’ve noticed that your monthly energy bills are rising, it could just be that your AC is worn out and inefficient. Consider a replacement.

Step Two: Selecting a New System

Just because you’ve owned a central AC in the past, doesn’t mean that you must install that same system again. There are plenty of options that homeowners have when it comes to keeping their homes nice and cool, including:

  • Central Air Conditioners
  • Ductless Systems
  • Dual Fuel Systems
  • Evaporative Coolers
  • Heat Pumps

Step Three: Professional Installation

After you’ve been matched with the system that will best meet your cooling needs, it is time to have the system properly sized and installed. When we say “sized,” we do not mean calculating the amount of space the system will take up (though that is important). What we are referring to is ensuring that the amount of cooling output the system provides is sufficient for your space.

Professional installation is key to ensuring the long and successful service life of your system, so do not trust the job to anyone except a licensed and trained HVAC professional. And sure, there are going to be plenty of amateurs willing to service your system, but sometimes an attempt to save money can end up costing you much more in the long run.

It is always best to consult with a professional before you make any final decisions, so do not hesitate to call us!
