Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner06/01/2017Even with thorough AC maintenance, the time comes when every air conditioner will need replaced. We understand that annual maintenance will lengthen an AC’s lifespan, but when the time comes, the pros at Hillcrest Air Conditioning & Plumbing will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Bakersfield. When you’re shopping for a new air conditioner, there are several factors to keep in mind and we’ll help you navigate them all to choose the system that will be best for your home and your budget. One feature everyone looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Selecting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained offers you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are a few other important factors to think about: Make sure your AC replacement is the right 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 decreasing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a littler system to save some costs upfront. Nonetheless, a smaller system can cost you more in the long run if it’s too small to keep your home cool. It will run continuously to try to keep up and will have a noticeably shortened life. You’ll pay more on energy bills during its life and you’ll catch 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. Find the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll get the payback every month on your utility bills. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the better 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.
