Considering A System Replacement?

When Considering A New AC:

  • Check out all the specifications of the new equipment.
  • Compare warranties and what they guarantee from the manufacturer.
  • Which manufacturer puts customers first.
  • The federal government requires all central cooling and heating systems to display efficiency ratings to allow consumers to compare. The higher the SEER or HSPF, the more efficient the model.

Repair Versus Replacement Checklist

Sometimes that long awaited breakdown happens… is it worth paying that much after the warranty expires?

If you answered 7+ Years, it may be time to replace

If over $1,000, you have almost paid for a new system

If over $1,000, you have almost paid for a new system

Properly-Sized AC Equipment

A properly sized air conditioner will cool and dehumidify your home. A system that is too large will not dehumidify the air and a system that is too small will not keep your house cool on the hottest days. Ask your contractor if you may benefit from a heat load calculation. But contractors don’t recommend an AC size based solely on the size of your home. They also take into account:

    • Local Temperature
    • Humidity
    • Windows that let in heat from the sun
    • Level of ceiling insulation and
    • The number and lifestyle of your home’s occupants.

Term Definition

The British Thermal Unit (BTU) is a measure of the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of a pound (one pint) of water by 1 degree Fahrenheit which is used to describe how much cooling or heating a home needs. Ton is a measure of the size of the cooling capacity of an air conditioner.
