Don’t spend unnecessary money on your a/c unit

Every a/c unit, sometime during the life of the unit, will require repair, maintenance and eventually replacement but what matters most when having a new air conditioning system installed or current unit repaired or maintained?

Here are some considerations:

Your existing ductwork – Is your ductwork adequate to accept a new a/c unit or does it need to be redone? Is the ductwork properly insulated and/or is there damage to the ducts?

The size of your home vs size of the a/c unit – An a/c system should match the size of your home. For example, if an air conditioning system is too large for your home, you will be spending much more on your energy bill then necessary.

Improper Use – Are you using your a/c unit correctly to save energy? Is it running all of the time? Are you using the correct filter/s?

Proper Control – Do you have control over your a/c unit? Does your thermostat allow for you to control the timing of the temperature? For example, if you will be out all evening, can you raise the thermostat to 78 then set the timer to decrease the temperature a few minutes before you return home or control the temperature from an ipad or phone?

Maintenance – Even after having a new a/c unit installed, it is important to continue with regular maintenance to keep your new air conditioning unit running at top performance.

Repair – Is the company repairing your a/c unit reputable? Will they only tell you what is actually needed to complete the repair?

The person installing your new a/c unit – There are a variety of a/c brands to choose from but when deciding on a new air conditioning system beside the brand you choose, who installs your new a/c unit is just as important.

If the person installing your new air conditioner, repairing or performing maintenance is not a licensed certified contractor then you are putting yourself at risk for potential problems and probably paying more than is necessary to install, repair or maintain your a/c unit.
