Energy Efficiency

Air conditioning already accounts for nearly half of your energy bills during the summertime, so make sure the new AC unit you purchase can help you save money. Energy-efficient air conditioners can significantly reduce your energy bills if you are currently stuck with an air conditioner that is more than a decade old.

Cooling Capacity

Size is one of the most important factors when choosing an air conditioner. A unit that is too small will not be able to cool your home efficiently, while an oversized air conditioner will cycle on and off repeatedly, wasting energy and decreasing the unit’s ability to maintain a comfortable temperature. Your HVAC replacement contractor in Montgomery County will perform a series of tests to determine the adequate cooling capacity for your home.

Tax Incentives and Rebates

New air conditioners aren’t cheap, but tax incentives and manufacturer rebates can make your purchase significantly more affordable. Ask your HVAC replacement provider about tax incentives and rebates to determine which air conditioners offer the best value.


Even if you’re purchasing a simple wall unit, air conditioner installation is always best left to the pros. Not only will professional air conditioner installation ensure that your new cooling system works properly, but some manufacturers will void the warranty if you install the system yourself. Your HVAC replacement contractor will make all necessary arrangements to install your new air conditioner, including crane rentals and necessary permits.
