June 01, 2017

Even with thorough AC maintenance, the time arises when every air conditioner needs to be replaced. We comprehend that annual maintenance will prolong an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the team at Appalachian Heating will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Mount Hope. When you’re looking for a new air conditioner, there are many factors to consider and we’ll help you navigate them all to choose the system that will be perfect for your house and your budget.

One feature everybody looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Choosing 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 consider:

  • 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, which can lead to wear and tear on your new system and reducing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a small system to save some money upfront. But, a smaller system can result in increased expenses in the long run if it’s too small to keep your indoor space cool. It will run consistently to try to keep up and will have a noticeably shortened life. You’ll pay more on energy bills during its life and you’ll discover yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you would prefer. 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 energy bills. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the greater 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. Many times, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you acquire a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
