Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with diligent AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner should be replaced. We understand that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the experts at West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Hudsonville. When you’re shopping 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 residence and your budget.

One feature all of us look for in an AC replacement is dependability. Getting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained should give you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are some 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 littler system to save some costs upfront. But, a smaller system can cost you more in the long run if it’s too small to keep your home cool. It will run continuously 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 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 see the payback every month on your energy bills. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the superior 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 keep you in the know about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Often, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you buy a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
