Why Should You Consider Replacing Your Home’s Old Air Conditioning Unit?
It may be time to evaluate the condition of your air conditioning unit if you find that your home just isn’t cool enough during the hot summer months. Your energy bill is one of your highest household expenses, which is why you should always ensure you are getting the most value for every dollar spent.
There are several options to choose from when searching for a new air conditioning unit. From wall and window units and ductless mini-splits to central air conditioning equipment, today’s newer systems deliver energy-saving opportunities compared to older units. There may also be some incentives and rebates available from your local utility and municipality for investing in Energy Star certified HVAC systems and other related energy efficient improvements.
Ensure the Air You Breathe is Refreshingly Cool, Clean and Comfortable
If it’s time to replace your AC unit, an Energy Star certified system may be the right choice for you. It has higher seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) and energy efficiency ratio (EER) ratings, plus, it uses 8 percent less energy than conventional models. If you are leaning towards a central air conditioner, it’s a good idea to consider updating your old furnace at the same time. Here’s why:
- A central air conditioner requires a blower motor, which is usually fitted in your furnace.
- If your furnace is more than 15 years old and operating with a high-efficiency AC unit, your system will not operate at peak performance.
- Mismatched units can result in premature breakdown, the possibility of no warranty and a decreased lifecycle.
- Replacing both units at once will also minimize installation costs.
