Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner06/01/2017Even with diligent AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner needs to be replaced. We know that annual maintenance will prolong an AC’s lifespan, but when the time comes, the team at iTemp Heating and Air Conditioning will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Chicago. When you’re searching for a new air conditioner, there are several factors to consider and we’ll help you navigate them all to select the system that will be appropriate for your home and your budget. One feature everyone looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Getting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained will give you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are several other important factors to take into consideration: Make sure your AC replacement is the appropriate size for your home. A system that is too large will cycle on and off too frequently, leading to wear and tear on your new system and shortening its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a smaller system to save some expenses upfront. However, a smaller system can create more costs 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 markedly shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility costs during its life and you’ll discover yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you’d like. We can help you choose 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 costs. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the superior the efficiency. Look for a good warranty. We can help you find 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. Many times, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you buy a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
