Purchasing a new air conditioner can be quite intimidating. Just thinking about the number of choices that Arizona residents have is overwhelming. Instead of the pushy sales approach of some heating and cooling companies, we enjoy providing a more personal approach. Understanding your financial situation and the needs of your property allows us to provide ideal, quality solutions that will save you a lot of money over time.
A proper AC installation requires a professional assessment of your ductwork and insulation. If you’re replacing your system, don’t settle on any new cooling equipment until you’ve spoken with a trained technician about sizing and other important property features. Here are a few pointers to think about before you invest in a new air conditioning system for your Phoenix property.
Energy Efficiency – An energy-efficient air conditioner can save you a lot of money. Though it might cost more upfront, a machine with a higher SEER (Seasonal Energy-Efficiency Rating) utilizes electricity more efficiently. All newer AC units are required to have a SEER of at least 14. Keep in mind, the Phoenix weather is a little more intense than the national average.
Size of the AC Unit – Bigger is not always better. The best air conditioner for your space is one that can accommodate the cooling load of the home or building. A unit that’s too large for your space will actually waste more energy. One of our trained, certified and experienced AC installation technicians can easily help you determine which product specs are best for you.
Before You Buy – Before buying, you’ll also need to decide between central air conditioning and ductless AC systems. Both are viable possibilities, but the system that’s right for you depends, in large part, on your home’s structure. Since many AC installation companies try to sell property owners high-priced options, consult with a trusted source before making a final decision.
When temperatures soar in the Valley of the Sun, AC units work twice as hard just to keep properties cool. Many cooling systems are overworked, trying to keep the hot air outside and the cold air in. Quality air conditioners can withstand a reasonable amount of wear and tear (especially when they’re properly maintained), but even the best equipment wears out over time.
If your AC unit is more than 10 or 15 years old, replacing it can be a lot more fruitful. Many Phoenix residents continue to pay for repairs just to keep their cooling systems alive. In hindsight, installing an AC unit replacement would have saved them more than repairing the old unit. Upgraded air conditioners improve efficiency, which saves quite a bit of money over time.
Discussing your AC system with a maintenance technician is always a good idea. At Canyon State, we enjoy educating the Phoenix community on upkeep and prevention during routine visits. Your HVAC company should know your air conditioner best. All of our AC installation technicians know how to properly assess properties and help you find the best solution when you are considering a replacement.
If you notice that your property is not as cool as it should be, then replacing the cooling system is a good idea. When the cost of your electricity has skyrocketed, yet your AC blows lukewarm air, it’s definitely time for an upgrade. You just never know when it’ll fail altogether, and it never hurts to get a free system evaluation. Whether you hire us or not, we take pride in helping you figure out what your options are and what the next steps should be.
