Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with diligent AC maintenance, the time comes when every air conditioner needs to be replaced. We understand that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time arises, the experts at Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Kearney. When you’re searching for a new air conditioner, there are a lot of factors to keep in mind and we’ll help you navigate them all to find the system that will be appropriate for your residence and your budget.

One feature everybody 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 think about:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the correct size for your home. A system that is larger than necessary 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 expenses upfront. However, 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’d like. We can help you decide 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 energy costs. 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 regularly 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. Regularly, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you purchase a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
