Summer day can be long and warm. If you don't want to be stuck in the heat, your air conditioner will need to be working the best it can. Otherwise, you'll be stuck sweating or paying more than you need to to keep your house cool. Air conditioners don't work by magic and do need maintenance or even replacement. With a simple service call we can come help you stay cool and save money.
There are a few reasons why we would recommend you install a new air conditioning system over a simple repair. For instance, if you have a refrigerant leak or a replacement compressor is needed it may just be cheaper to have a new system installed. The type of refrigerant that your air conditioner uses comes into play as well. If your cooling system uses an older refrigerant it may be costly in the long term to service a unit that uses an out-of-date refrigerant. Newer refrigerants are also more efficient and environmentally friendly, in addition.
If your system is old, the sooner a new system is installed the more you'll save from the improved efficiencies that modern systems offer. Up until 2006, 10 SEER was the efficiency standard for air conditioners, but now the lowest SEER rating allowed by federal law is 13 SEER. That means that modern air conditioning systems save 30% more energy as the standard compared to equipment available then. 16 or more SEER units are also a choice which will save 60+% more energy than the 10 SEER units. Federal tax credits are also available for these high efficiency systems as well. Give us a call today and we can work with you to find the best solution for your home or business.
