It’s easy to put off replacing appliances such as air conditioners, especially if the unit appears to still function well enough. However, there are actually many solid reasons why air conditioner replacement might be a good idea in your Tampa, St. Petersburg or Clearwater home. So what are a few of these reasons?
- Lower utility bill. Replacing your old unit with a high-efficiency system will lower your utility bills, as such systems are designed to be energy efficient. Older units tend to work harder and use more energy to cool the home simply due to age and outmoded technology.
- Convenience. Purchasing a new system results in very little chance of repairs for the first few years. An older unit can easily break down, meaning you will suffer from the heat while waiting for repair services.
- Eco-friendly. New systems use refrigerants that are much more environmentally friendly than old units, allowing you to feel better about your family’s carbon footprint.
- Ideal comfort. Replacing your old air conditioner with a new model means a more comfortable home, as new systems offer features for adjusting temperature and humidity, as well as better airflow. Look into a zoning system if desired, as this allows you to independently control temperatures in separate designated zones in your home.
- Tax credits. Depending on the high-efficiency system you purchase, you may be eligible for federal energy-efficiency tax credits.
- Warranty. Have an outdoor unit that needs replacing, but aren’t ready to replace your furnace or indoor air handler? Purchasing a dry-charged unit is generally the best idea in terms of saving money. You can avoid paying for repairs, plus you’ll get a brand-new outdoor unit covered by a several-year warranty.
- Better air quality. A final advantage in terms of air conditioner replacement is better air quality. New systems are much more adept at controlling humidity, meaning less chance for mold and mildew to thrive. Advanced filtration systems also work to minimize indoor air pollutants.
