Your Air Conditioner Is Broke Again? What To Know Before Cutting A Repair Check

If your air conditioner isn't working and you were told the last time you had it repaired that it was time for a new one, it may be time to finally give in and replace your unit. Although there are initial costs that you'll have to pay to get the new unit installed, in the long run, it can be better financially. Here are some of the reasons why you want to invest in a new unit, instead of wasting money repairing a unit that may not run for much longer.

Consider Efficiency Benefits

The savings in electricity bills throughout the summer may be enough to justify the purchase of the new air conditioning unit. The HVAC contractor can talk with you to help you pick out the most efficient unit for your type of home and direct you with what settings and temperature to set the unit at so that you can utilize the most savings possible. The energy savings could be hundreds or more over the years.

Ask About State and Federal Rebates

Getting rid of old appliances that waste energy, release toxins into the air, and that don't work well can benefit you when it's time to file your taxes. Ask the contractor what units get the biggest rebates, and what state or federal rebates will apply when you make this financial investment and upgrade. If your local area is having power problems, they may even be offering an incentive.

Think About the Convenience

You want to think about the convenience factor when it comes to replacing the unit instead of worrying about more repairs, or the unit not working the next year when you try to turn it on. Instead of having to stress that it is going to stop working on the hottest day or when you aren't home, you instead want to replace it now and rest easy in cool comfort.

If you know that your air conditioner hasn't been running well and that it's wasting energy, it's time to replace it. Don't keep sticking money into a unit that you don't know how long it's going to run, or how much money you'll waste if you need to buy a new unit anyways in the near future. Talk with the HVAC professionals to find the best air conditioner for your home, and to have your other HVAC appliances and systems inspected throughout the property.

Maintaining Your HVAC Unit

My husband and I live in an older brick ranch home. Since we moved into this house ten years ago, we’ve been slowly renovating it. We installed new hardwood and tile floors. We’ve also replaced cabinet hardware and installed a new backsplash in the kitchen. While we’ve definitely completed some upgrades, we still have a lot of work to do. One of our future purchases will be a new HVAC system. Our unit is twenty years old. However, to keep it running efficiently for the time being, we have it regularly inspected. In order to properly maintain the air conditioning unit at your home, you should consider having an HVAC contractor examine it annually. On this blog, you will discover the things an HVAC contractor looks at during an annual inspection.
