Tips for Air Conditioner Replacement

It’s always a good idea to think about your air conditioner when the temperature starts to climb. If you have a unit that is more than ten years old, it’s a great idea to schedule an inspection for your AC unit. If your inspection reveals a need for a new HVAC unit, try to follow these guidelines:

Consider Full System Efficiency

You might be thinking about your AC today, but make sure you look at your entire HVAC system. AC repair might be the cheaper option today, but you need to think about how well your entire system works. Take a moment to weigh the costs of replacing the HVAC system against the savings you might receive with a more efficient replacement.

Inspect the Ducts

The better the condition of your ducts, the more efficient your HVAC system is. Look at the duct efficiency of your home before deciding on a specific HVAC unit. If you have questions, you can ask the technician who does your inspection for more information. All of our technicians at Liberty Heating & AC Repair are fully licensed, highly trained and more than willing to speak with you about duct cleaning and maintenance.

Size Matters

It is always important to install a properly sized air conditioner. Newer units allow homeowners to buy less tonnage with more cooling power. The AC unit that came with your home may not be the best size fit for your current needs.

Pay Attention to Branding

You might want to save money on your new air conditioner, but do not sacrifice quality for pricing. The lower-cost brands don’t always provide the best units, and most of them have severe problems over the life of their units. Carrier offers a number of different high quality units at varying prices that can fit your budget.

Look at SEER

Always ask about SEER ratings before you buy a new air conditioning unit. The higher the rating, the more efficient the air conditioner and the lower your energy bills.

Look at Financing

You may be able to finance your air conditioning repair or replacement through a number of sources. Ask your technician about financing, payment terms, and rebates through your utility company.

Always work with experienced, trained and knowledgeable HVAC technicians. The more your technician knows, the more money he or she can save you. For more about HVAC repair in Hinesville GA, contact us at Liberty Heating & AC Repair today.
