Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

Even with careful AC maintenance, the time comes when every air conditioner needs to be replaced. We know that annual maintenance will extend 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 looking 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 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, 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 money upfront. But, 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 see 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 typically 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 buy a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
