9 Tips to Keep you Cool and Lower Your Cooling Costs
Air Conditioning Unit Replacement
When you find out you need AC replacement, you likely will not be thrilled with the idea initially. However, once you learn the benefits you’ll get from replacing your old air conditioner with a new, efficient model, you’ll start coming around to the idea.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you can save between 20% and 40% on your cooling bill annually by replacing your central air conditioner. With proper care, a central air conditioner should last about 15-20 years, so if yours is getting up there and you’re looking at a hefty repair bill, it might be a better move to just go with AC replacement.
AC Replacement Considerations
If you have added space to your living quarters — either by finishing an attic, basement or garage, or by putting on an addition — replacing your unit with a larger one that is better suited to your new square footage can keep your family more comfortable without running up your electric bill.
Although we leave the final decision with you about whether to repair or replace your AC, we give you our professional recommendation, based on the age of your current unit and how much more time we expect the repair would buy you.
Save Energy, Save Money
Not only can you save on operating costs with a new air conditioning unit, but you can also feel better about reducing your carbon footprint and using less energy. When you consider how much we use our air conditioners here in Maryland, the savings that a more efficient unit offers quickly add up.
You may be aware that some homeowners opt to replace their furnace at the same time they get air conditioner replacement because these two home systems work closely in tandem. Replacing them both at the same time may benefit you, but it may not be necessary. Our HVAC technicians will explain the pros and cons to you.
