Benefits of Air Conditioning Installation

  1. Greater energy efficiency. “Even if your air conditioner is only 10 years old, you may save 20 to 40 percent of your cooling energy costs by replacing it with a newer, more efficient model,” the department says. The actual savings largely depends on the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), or the amount of energy needed to provide a specific cooling output. Many older air conditioning systems have SEER ratings of six or less; the minimum SEER allowed by manufacturing standards today is 14. This means that today’s best air conditioners can be more than 50 percent more efficient than older models.
  2. Reliability – and peace of mind. You can put a price tag on an air conditioning repair; you cannot put a price tag on knowing that a new air conditioning system liberates you of the anxiety of unexpected breakdowns and repairs. On the off-chance that a malfunction does occur, a new air conditioner is covered by a warranty.
  3. Improved indoor air quality. Today’s high efficiency air conditioners include variable speed motors, which work hard to ensure better air flow and work even harder to remove impurities from the air.
  4. Quieter operation. Here’s one “problem” you’ll probably love to have with a new air conditioner, especially if your current air conditioner is one noisy contraption: a slow, steady hum that fades easily into the background.
  5. Safer, climate-friendly refrigerant that doesn’t ravage the environment, as mandated the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
  6. Enhanced marketability of your home. A new air conditioner is enormously appealing to home buyers. Even if you don’t plan to sell your home for five to 10 years, the investment you make today will pay you dividends in the future.
 

Not sure if you need air conditioner repair or replacement?

 
It can sometimes be hard to pick, but choosing replacement at the right times can save you tons of cost and heartache. At Polk Air Conditioning, our team often recommends replacement when:
1. Air conditioner is more than 10 years old.
In general, you can expect a well-maintained air conditioner to last about 15 years. However, if you’re in need of expensive repairs and your air conditioner is more than 10 years old, it will often make more sense to replace it. This is especially true when you consider the advancements in efficiency we’ve seen with air conditioners in the past decade alone.

2. Air conditioner is inefficient.
If your air conditioner has a low SEER rating, it can cost you a lot of money to operate it. Currently, newly manufactured air conditioners must have a SEER rating of at least 14. If your air conditioner’s SEER rating is below 14, you can cut back on your energy costs by replacing it with a new, more efficient unit.

3. You’re facing expensive repairs.
Any time you’re facing an expensive repair, you’ll want to weigh the costs of the repair against the costs of a new unit. If the cost of the repair would cover a large part of a new system, and especially if your air conditioner is showing any of the other signs in this list, it will likely make more financial sense to replace it.

4. Frequent breakdowns.
Does it seem like your air conditioner is constantly breaking down?? These repair costs can really add up, and it doesn’t make sense to keep making them on older units. Save yourself the headaches and the money by investing in a new unit.

5. Air conditioner uses R 22 Freon.
Freon is being phased out by the federal government in order to conserve energy nationwide. As a result, the costs of Freon are rising exponentially. If your air conditioner uses Freon, you’ll have to replace it eventually in order to switch over to the new refrigerant (R410A). If you’re having major problems with your air conditioner, especially if they involve the need for more Freon, it’s probably a good time to replace your unit.

6. Your home isn’t comfortable.
Do you have a hard time keeping your home cool? This could be the sign of an aging air conditioner or even an incorrectly sized system. Regardless of the cause, you want your air conditioner to do its job! If it’s not going to keep your home cool, you’ll want to replace it with a unit that will.
