Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with diligent AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner should be replaced. We understand that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time comes, the team at Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Wisconsin Rapids. When you’re looking for a new air conditioner, there are several factors to keep in mind and we’ll help you navigate them all to select the system that will be perfect for your house and your budget.

One feature everyone looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Selecting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained will give you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are a few other important factors to consider:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the appropriate size for your home. A system that is larger than necessary will cycle on and off too frequently, leading to wear and tear on your new system and reducing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a small system to save some money upfront. However, a smaller system can create more costs in the long run if it’s too small to keep your home cool. It will run consistently to try to keep up and will have a significantly shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility bills during its life and you’ll find yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you’d like. 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 get the payback every month on your utility bills. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the superior 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 keep you in the know about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Often, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you acquire a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
