When to Repair or Upgrade?
Air conditioning replacement can at times be a large and confusing investment for your home or office. It’s tempting to put off a replacement and choose the affordable at the moment repair option instead. However, you should consider the following factors when deciding whether to repair or replace:
If your A/C is more than 10 years old and is starting to give you issues, you may consider a replacement. Just take the initial purchase price of a new air conditioning system and compare it to the repair cost as well as the long term costs of operating. Energy usage and utility rates can run extremely high during peak summer season but with a more efficient cooling unit, less electricity is consumed. Your air conditioner usually accounts for more than half of your energy bills in the summer.
By upgrading to an energy efficient air conditioner, you can cut your monthly cooling bill by one-third. This is a huge savings on your monthly bill and you improve your cooling issues with comfort. We help you determine whether an upgrade is financially worth doing.
What to Consider when Choosing a New System
Humidity, average temperature, and overall climate affect the size, type, and value of the air conditioning unit you choose. To learn more about the types of cooling systems available for the Coastal Bend Area contact Allen Air Conditioning & Electrical at 361-463-6592.
Types of A/C Systems Available
Your standard central air conditioners are usually split systems and package A/Cs. Homes without ductwork use ductless mini-splits and ideal for cooling in most cases. For one room cooling, portable, window and wall units are designed well to provide the comfort needed. Swamp coolers remove heat using evaporation and work most effectively in dry climates but are not used much in the humid locations of the Coastal Bend.
Benefits to Upgrading
The are many benefits to upgrading your current A/C unit with an Energy Efficient Unit. Huge energy savings, improved indoor air quality, lowering monthly cooling costs, lowering your home’s carbon footprint, and better overall temperature control to name a few reasons to make the switch. Energy Efficiency Laws require A/C systems to have a SEER or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio Rating of 13+. Your 10 year old outdated system could be significantly less efficient. By switching over could mean huge savings. New cooling systems also have R-410A refrigerant which is an environmentally friendly alternative to the Freon or R-22 option.
