An air conditioner is a very important part of your home. Without a central AC, staying comfortable at home would be so much trouble and hassle, so you want a system that will last for a long time. And while we understand that cost is important to you, we think there are a few other things you should focus on first and foremost when you’re in the market for a new AC.
Plan and Give Yourself Time
First, it’s important that you give yourself plenty of time to select a new air conditioner if you can. An air conditioner is an investment—one that typically accounts for over 40% of your monthly bill. However, if you take the time to select the right unit and the right contractors, your bills can drop, and you’ll notice the savings at your next payment cycle. Take the time to choose a quality installation from a company who will do the job right the first time in order to avoid a lot of hassle.
Choose the Right Contractors
Too many people call around from contractor to contractor looking for a low cost of installation, but this really is not the way to go about it. Unfortunately, a lot of dishonest companies are out there looking to make a quick buck. They may spend little time in your home, resulting in a shoddy installation, an oversized system, or a high cost of repairs later on.
Choose quality over the price of installation whenever possible. Besides, there are likely financing options available that won’t hurt your wallet!
Think Carefully about Efficiency
Efficiency is more important than cost in the long term. The total cost of ownership of a high-efficiency AC system may actually turn out to be less than the total cost of ownership of that lower priced system. Think of how often you use your AC, and how high your bills can get in the summer. Wouldn’t it be nice to get a break? Finding a system with a SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) of 16 or higher can help.
