Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner06/01/2017Even with thorough AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner should be replaced. We know that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time comes, the experts at O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in the Main Line. When you’re searching for a new air conditioner, there are several 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 everyone looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Selecting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained should give you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are a few 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, resulting in wear and tear on your new system and reducing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a small system to save some expenses upfront. Nonetheless, a smaller system can create more costs in the long run if it’s too small to keep your indoor space cool. It will run endlessly 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’d like. We can help you determine the appropriate sized air conditioner for your home. Ratings matter. Find the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll see 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.
