Is It Time To Replace Your Home’s Aging Air Conditioning Unit?

It may be time to determine if your air conditioning unit’s condition will make it through the summer. On those hot days, you find that your home isn’t cool enough. Data shows that your energy bill is one of your highest household expenses, which is why you should always ensure you are getting the most value for every dollar spent.

The technicians at Feltons Heating & Cooling will assist you in evaluating the several options to choose from when searching for a new air conditioning unit. Today’s newer systems deliver energy-saving opportunities compared to older units, from wall and window units and ductless mini-splits to central air conditioning equipment. There may also be some incentives and rebates available from your local utility and municipality for investing in Energy Star-certified HVAC systems and other related energy-efficient improvements. 

Ensure the Air You Breathe is Efficiently Cool, Clean, and Comfortable

If we collectively determine that it’s time to replace your AC unit, an efficient system may be the right choice for you. These units sport higher seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) and energy efficiency ratio (EER) ratings. Plus, it uses 8 percent less energy than older equipment. If you are leaning towards a new central air conditioning system, it’s a good idea to consider pairing a new furnace concurrently. Reasons to pair new units:

  • A central air conditioner requires a blower motor, matching your furnace.
  • If your furnace is more than 15 years old and operating with a high-efficiency AC unit, your system will not work at peak performance.
  • Mismatched units can result in a premature breakdown, the possibility of no warranty, and a decreased lifecycle.
  • Replacing both units at once will also minimize installation costs.
