Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

Even with careful AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner should be replaced. We know that annual maintenance will prolong an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the pros at Kapaun & Brown Inc. will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Marshalltown. When you’re shopping for a new air conditioner, there are a lot of factors to think about 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. Choosing the right AC and keeping it well-maintained should give you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are a few other important factors to consider:

  • 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, resulting in wear and tear on your new system and shortening its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a smaller system to save some money upfront. However, a smaller system can result in increased expenses in the long run if it’s too small to keep your house cool. It will run consistently to try to keep up and will have a markedly shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility costs during its life and you’ll catch yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you want. We can help you determine the appropriate sized air conditioner for your home.
  • Ratings matter. Look for the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll get the payback every month on your energy costs. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the superior 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 regularly needed to keep that warranty valid.
  • Rebates and incentives are always nice. We will let you know about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Often, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you acquire a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
