Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

Cooling

Even with diligent AC maintenance, the time arises when every air conditioner should be replaced. We know that annual maintenance will prolong an AC’s lifespan, but when the time arises, the team at 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Lake Forest. When you’re shopping for a new air conditioner, there are a lot of factors to keep in mind and we’ll help you navigate them all to find the system that will be appropriate for your house and your budget.

One feature everyone looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Selecting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained will 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 shortening its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a smaller system to save some money upfront. However, a smaller system can create more costs in the long run if it’s too small to keep your house cool. It will run consistently to try to keep up and will have a markedly shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility costs during its life and you’ll find yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you’d like. We can help you determine the appropriate sized air conditioner for your home.
  • Ratings matter. Look for the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll get the payback every month on your energy 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. Often, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you purchase a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
