Advantages of Replacing Your Air Conditioner
As an equipment owner, you have two choices when it comes to an air conditioning replacement or installation. You can wait until the unit fails, or you can prepare for a planned replacement as your air conditioner nears the end of its lifespan. After a decade of daily use, equipment loses some of its original efficiency. Meanwhile, manufacturers have developed many exciting new features to reduce energy use.
Many of today's models are 15 to 20 percent more efficient than systems installed 10 years ago, and some top-of-the-line air conditioners are 40 percent more efficient. These systems are quieter, and they deliver balanced cooling with fewer temperature swings so that you can enjoy equal comfort in every room. Plus, most systems are protected by a factory warranty for the first 10 years.
Choosing an AC System for Your Home
When helping select a new AC system for customers, we assess the building, including its size and heat-gain factors. Then, we discuss your preferences to see which features you prefer.
- Single-stage air conditioners have been the gold standard for decades. Choose from packaged units and split systems with efficiency ratings starting around 14 SEER.
- Two-stage models can run at lower speeds, which reduces energy use by 18 to 20 percent. Plus, these systems provide enhanced humidity and allergen control.
- Variable-speed air conditioners modulate continuously to reduce energy use by up to 40 percent while providing the ideal amount of cooling.
