AC Replacement in Pacoima, San Fernando, Sylmar, CA and Surrounding Areas
Need an AC Replacement?
When the summer months begin and the temperatures soar, it can be uncomfortable spending a lot of time outdoors. You take refuge in your home and expect your air conditioner to keep you cool and comfy.
However, as your unit ages, it may begin to breakdown and not keep your home as cool as it once did. As one of the most expensive appliances, you expect it to last a long time. There always comes a time when you need an AC replacement.
Things to Consider Before an AC Replacement
Your air conditioner was designed to offer an extensive lifespan. Most units last anywhere from 16 to 20 years. When you notice your AC needing more frequent repairs or running up your utility bills, you know it’s time to replace it. Here are some things you might consider before purchasing your new air conditioning unit.
You might think this is an easy choice — the cheapest one, please!. However, the cheapest might not be the best choice. You need to find a balance between the price of the unit and its energy efficiency and lifespan. If you plan to move in a year or two, you might go for the least expensive. Otherwise, you need to get the best value for your money.
If your home measures 1,500 square feet, you don’t need an air conditioner designed to cool a 3,000 square foot home. When you purchase one that’s too big, you end up with higher than normal utility bills. A unit that’s too small, ensures that your home never cools off completely.
Brand and Model
As with just about everything you buy, there are economy and luxury brands of air conditioners. You need to find a brand and model that fits both your budget and expectation for energy efficiency.
