Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with careful AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner needs to be replaced. We comprehend that annual maintenance will prolong an AC’s lifespan, but when the time arises, the experts at Contra Costa Heating & AC will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in the Bay Area. When you’re searching for a new air conditioner, there are several factors to consider and we’ll help you navigate them all to select the system that will be perfect for your home and your budget.

One feature all of us look for in an AC replacement is dependability. Choosing 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 take into consideration:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the correct size for your home. A system that is too big will cycle on and off too frequently, resulting in wear and tear on your new system and reducing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a smaller system to save some expenses upfront. However, 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 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 find yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you would prefer. We can help you choose 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 utility bills. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the greater the efficiency.
  • Look for a good warranty. We can help you select 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 know about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Regularly, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you purchase a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
