AC Installation

Is it time for an A/C installation of a new A/C unit?  Are you curious about the installation cost, SEER rating and energy efficiency? A SEER rating is short for seasonal energy efficiency ratio. This is the ratio of the cooling output of an air conditioner over a typical cooling season, divided by the energy it uses in Watt-Hours. It may also be called a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. The rule of thumb is: the higher the SEER, the lower your energy bill is at the end of the month. You might ask questions such as how much does the AC unit cost, how much does it cost to install etc.

Choosing a new air conditioner

When choosing a new air conditioner replacement for your home, you should take several factors into consideration. How much does it cost? Does the price include installation costs? How much more does an air conditioning unit cost as you factor in efficiency? Not only does the square footage of your home matter, but also what we call the “heat load”. These factors can be determined by the size of your home, the amount of insulation in the home, and the size of the windows. A contractor can help you determine the heat load of your home and recommend the best air conditioning installation for your needs. Choosing new AC units can be an intimidating process, but knowing what to look for will help you select the right system for your home. For example, if your central air conditioner is producing more noise than you’d like, you may want to consider replacing it with a quieter, more energy-efficient system. You can also choose a new air conditioner replacement if your current unit isn’t working properly. 

It’s best to get at least three quotes from different contractors before you make a final decision. You can also ask friends and family for recommendations. Another option is to look online for reviews of contractors. Some contractors offer yearly service contracts, which can save you money on your energy bill. Once you’ve decided on a type of air conditioner replacement, the next step is to choose the contractor. An outdated air conditioning system may not only leave you and your family uncomfortable, it can also cost you more in the long run than a replacement air conditioning system. You might be able to fix the problem temporarily, but it will only buy you time before another problem arises. Alternatively, you may choose to replace your entire system and reap the benefits of a more efficient and quieter central air system.

The most common types of HVAC systems are:

Repairing an air conditioner costs less than replacing it

Generally speaking, in the short term, it is cheaper to repair an air conditioner than to replace it. But in the long run, nothing could be further than the truth. However, the costs can vary depending on several factors. First of all, repair costs are based on location, and seasonal differences will affect the cost. Secondly, units that service more than one area in the home can be difficult to access, so the repair may take longer and be more costly. 

If you’re uncertain about your AC repair vs. the cost of an AC installation, it’s best to get a professional opinion. Depending on the problem, you might be able to save around 30 percent of the cost of replacing the unit. If your unit is under warranty, you might even be able to repair it instead of replacing it but have to pay labor charges as manufacturers don’t usually cover this. Lastly, the age of your air conditioner may be a factor in the cost of repair. Older units may be difficult to find replacement parts and may require a specialized company.

How Old Is Your Current Air Conditioning System?

New HVAC techs may not be familiar with older models. This could impact the level of maintenance that you are receiving from your current HVAC company. If you’re looking for an AC repair service, look for deals and rebates from a company that specializes in older air conditioning units. Like we said before, repairing an air conditioner is much cheaper than replacing it in the short term, however, you should know that an older unit will no longer function as efficiently and energy-efficiently as a new one. So, if your old air conditioning unit breaks down every year, especially in the summer months, replacing it will be a better overall decision. 

Choosing between repairing and replacing an air conditioner is not an easy choice and many factors must be taken into consideration, including the cost of repairs, the size of the unit, and its performance and efficiency. Also, the lifespan of the air conditioner will be longer with a new unit and you’ll be protected in case of a malfunction, if installed by a high quality contractor.

What Kind of Central AC is Installed in My House?

There are many components in an HVAC system. There are many factors homeowners could consider such as: electrical, refrigerant, proper ductwork, location of the system, temperature required etc. Installing an indoor furnace, depending on the type of existing equipment, could be the right option if you have a natural gas connection to run to it. The outdoor condenser unit, that sits too closely to an outside wall, might have to be re-located due to a previous installer error. Repair services vs. purchasing a new HVAC installation depends on how much you have to invest in a new ac system installation.
