New A/C Unit install Before and After

We see this all of the time in our industry: a customer who chooses to go with a costly repair on an old system that will statistically be a bad investment. What’s stopping you from getting an air conditioning replacement? Many homeowners can’t justify a large initial investment for a new A/C unit but don’t consider the long-term benefits that they could start taking advantage of with a new unit. Here are seven great advantages to upgrading to a new A/C unit. With these tips, you could see some significant savings!

  • Reduced spending – Since new A/C units are designed to run far more efficiently than models that are only a few years old, you can expect your monthly cooling costs to go down.
  • Increased comfort – Advanced technologies promote comfort throughout the home by providing a constant stream of conditioned air, better moisture control, and more even temperatures with less fluctuation.
  • Improved air quality – Improved moisture control means that you’ll be able to breathe more easily because your home will be at a lower risk for the growth of mold and mildew. Indoor Air Quality add-ons for new A/C units also are extremely helpful.
  • Tax credits – If you want to get an even higher return on your investment, the time to upgrade to a new A/C unit could be now. Homeowners can usually receive a tax credit when they purchase eligible, energy-efficient HVAC equipment. Always do your homework beforehand, but getting a tax credit is a great way to lessen the expenses of a new system.
  • Warranty protection – With new systems, we are currently seeing manufacturers with some great warranties. Almost all of them qualify for extended warranties, including some that cover parts and labor.
  • Dependability – A total system replacement, on the other hand, can provide you with the peace of mind that your equipment will run dependably and safely for many years into the future.
  • Friendlier refrigerant – The R-22 refrigerant, the type that’s probably in your current air conditioner, is being phased out by the federal government in response to environmental concerns. Today’s units make use of a more eco-friendly, EPA-approved refrigerant known as R-410A. As R-22 has gone away, we have seen an increased cost per pound. That price will continue to increase as the years go on. R-410A is a lot less expensive to place a system in the case of a leak.
