A/C systems typically last between 8 to 15 years on an average, with that being said there are so many variables that can effect the efficiency of your AC and Heating systems. The air conditioner plays an important role in the home, helping to circulate cool air, reduce humidity and maximize comfort. So you'll have to replace your HVAC unit at some point.
Things to consider before buying a new central A/C:
1. Finding an HVAC installer
Ask the contractor to list the make , model and Seer rating of the A/C unit on the quote
2. Installation price
When you replace or install a new A/C unit, the cost should include the price of the unit and installation.
3. A/C unit size
Your A/C size is crucial to a comfortable home. Make sure the central A/C is large enough to cool down your house but not so large it wastes energy. A system that is too big for your home will cycle on and off frequently, consuming electricity and reducing energy efficiency. If it's too small, it will not be able to cool your entire home on hot days.
4. Energy efficiency
Air conditioner efficiency is measured by the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), and the government now requires that all A/C units have a SEER rating of 14 or higher. A rating from 15 to 22 earns an energy-efficient classification.
5. Air conditioner maintenance
Most A/C manufacturers recommend yearly maintenance. Being pro active regarding your HVAC system can be crucial to your systems efficiency and longevity. Ask your contractor for details. Consider an HVAC maintenance contract with a trusted contractor to head off potential A/C problems before they become serious. Give Wheeler Air Conditioning a call today 480-988-5222
