Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with diligent AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner will need replaced. We understand that annual maintenance will lengthen an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the experts at Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Ellsworth. When you’re searching for a new air conditioner, there are a lot of factors to think about and we’ll help you navigate them all to find the system that will be perfect for your residence and your budget.

One feature everyone looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Selecting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained should 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 right size for your home. A system that is larger than necessary will cycle on and off too frequently, resulting in wear and tear on your new system and reducing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a small system to save some money upfront. Nonetheless, a smaller system can cost you more in the long run if it’s too small to keep your indoor space cool. It will run continuously to try to keep up and will have a significantly shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility bills during its life and you’ll catch yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you want. We can help you determine the appropriate sized air conditioner for your home.
  • Ratings matter. Look for the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll see 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 typically needed to keep that warranty valid.
  • Rebates and incentives are always nice. We will keep you in the loop about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Many times, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you purchase a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
