Air Conditioning System Replacement
Deciding to replace your air conditioning system is a big step. You want to make sure it’s really necessary and you also want to know that you’re getting the best possible product as a replacement for your old system. With that in mind, it can be a bit overwhelming to try and determine which system is the right fit for you and your family.
That’s why Polar Bear Air Conditioning is always on hand to offer expert advice and answer whatever questions our Washington, DC and Northern Virginia customers have about replacing their air conditioners. Our expert staff can help you understand when and why it’s time to replace as well as what type of system is most appropriate for your home. We’ll also walk you through the steps of the replacement process and help you schedule it for a time that’s most convenient for you.
If you are looking into a new home, it’s important to consider factors that can affect your heating and cooling bills. A properly sized HVAC system, energy efficient windows and doors, and adequate insulation will all help keep your utility bills down. You should also determine the age and energy efficiency of the HVAC system; older systems will need more frequent repairs and might need to be replaced soon.
Is it Time to Replace Your Air Conditioner?
Sometimes it’s easy to tell that your air conditioning system needs to be replaced. If it’s too damaged to repair, or if the repair costs are excessive, that’s certainly the best option to pursue. However, there are other times when you should consider replacing even if your current air conditioning system isn’t quite on its last legs.
For instance, if you’ve been calling frequently for repairs lately, you should probably start looking for a replacement system. Even if the repairs are usually minor, the repeated costs you’re incurring will really start to add up over time. Plus, you’ll probably have to replace your system relatively soon anyway. So why keep paying to fix it?
Spending the money you would have used for repairs to have a replacement air conditioning system installed will likely save you a good bit of money in the long run. And you won’t have to deal with the constant repairs on top of that. Also, an air conditioning system that always needs repairs is probably not functioning all that efficiently either, even when it does work. Having a more energy efficient replacement installed means that you’ll be saving a good chunk on your energy bills as well.
You should also think about the fact that, even if your current air conditioning system is working just fine, it might still be worth looking into a replacement. That’s because the newer models that are available now are so much more energy efficient than even those installed 10 years ago. An older model that you’ve kept in tip top condition will still not be able to cool your home as thoroughly with as little energy as a new one you can replace it with today.
And that energy savings will quite quickly offset the cost of removing your old system and putting the new one in place. This is a particularly good move because, if your system was that old to begin with, you probably didn’t have that many good years left. When it did come to the end of its life, you’d have to pay to replace it anyway. If you replace your air conditioning system proactively, however, you just get to start saving on your energy bills sooner.
