Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with careful AC maintenance, the time comes when every air conditioner should be replaced. We understand that annual maintenance will lengthen an AC’s lifespan, but when the time comes, the pros at Scott Temperature will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Lawrence. When you’re shopping for a new air conditioner, there are several factors to keep in mind and we’ll help you navigate them all to choose the system that will be appropriate for your house and your budget.

One feature all of us look for in an AC replacement is dependability. Getting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained offers you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are several other important factors to consider:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the appropriate size for your home. A system that is too large will cycle on and off too frequently, resulting in wear and tear on your new system and shortening its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a littler system to save some costs upfront. However, a smaller system can result in increased expenses in the long run if it’s too small to keep your house cool. It will run endlessly to try to keep up and will have a significantly shortened life. You’ll pay more on energy bills during its life and you’ll discover 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 utility bills. 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 usually needed to keep that warranty valid.
  • Rebates and incentives are always nice. We will let you know about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Many times, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you buy a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
