Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with diligent AC maintenance, the time comes when every air conditioner needs to be replaced. We know that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time arises, the experts at Precision Mechanical will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Rapid City. When you’re searching 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 everybody looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Choosing the right AC and keeping it well-maintained offers you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are a few other important factors to think about:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the right size for your home. A system that is too large will cycle on and off too frequently, resulting in wear and tear on your new system and decreasing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a smaller system to save some costs upfront. However, a smaller system can create more costs 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 noticeably 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 decide the appropriate sized air conditioner for your home.
  • Ratings matter. Find the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll realize 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 choose 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 know about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Many times, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you buy a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
