Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

Even with thorough AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner needs to be replaced. We know that annual maintenance will prolong an AC’s lifespan, but when the time arises, the pros at Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Heflin. When you’re shopping for a new air conditioner, there are several factors to consider and we’ll help you navigate them all to find the system that will be perfect for your home and your budget.

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

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the appropriate size for your home. A system that is too big will cycle on and off too frequently, which can lead 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 money upfront. But, a smaller system can create more costs in the long run if it’s too small to keep your house cool. It will run continuously to try to keep up and will have a markedly shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility bills during its life and you’ll find yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you’d like. 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 realize the payback every month on your energy 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 let you know about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Regularly, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you buy a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
