Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with thorough AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner needs to be replaced. We understand that annual maintenance will lengthen an AC’s lifespan, but when the time comes, the team at Mayeuxs AC & Heating will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Norco and St. Charles Parish. When you’re looking for a new air conditioner, there are a lot of factors to consider and we’ll help you navigate them all to select the system that will be appropriate for your home and your budget.

One feature everyone looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Selecting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained should give you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are several other important factors to think about:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the right size for your home. A system that is larger than necessary will cycle on and off too frequently, leading to wear and tear on your new system and shortening its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a smaller system to save some costs upfront. However, a smaller system can result in increased expenses in the long run if it’s too small to keep your home cool. It will run endlessly to try to keep up and will have a markedly shortened life. You’ll pay more on energy bills during its life and you’ll discover yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you want. We can help you determine the appropriate sized air conditioner for your home.
  • Ratings matter. Select the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll see the payback every month on your utility bills. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the better the efficiency.
  • Look for a good warranty. We can help you select an air conditioner replacement with a great warranty, and we offer the maintenance service that’s typically needed to keep that warranty valid.
  • Rebates and incentives are always nice. We will keep you in the loop about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Regularly, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you acquire a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
