Professional air conditioner installation, maintenance, and repair can increase your unit’s lifespan, allowing you to enjoy quality air for longer. AC unit replacement becomes necessary if you constantly have to deal with repairs or want to upgrade to a modern AC model. Here are the advantages of replacing your AC unit when we recommend it:
1. Increased Comfort
Old or improperly maintained AC units may provide ineffective cooling, making your indoor environment uncomfortable. You can boost indoor comfort by getting a new unit installed by our qualified professionals. A new system can keep your indoor temperature at desired levels and improve air quality by eliminating allergens like dust and pet dander. New systems also operate on lower decibel levels than old ones, so you can further boost your comfort by maintaining a quieter indoor environment.
At Mainstream Heating and Cooling, we assess clients’ cooling needs and budgets and recommend the best system. Our team is NATE-certified, so you can rest assured we’ll provide professional air conditioner installation. NATE only certifies technicians with proper HVAC installation, repair, and maintenance knowledge and experience.
2. Better Energy Efficiency
Old systems often consume a lot of energy to keep homes cool, translating to high utility bills. We can help manage your energy consumption by installing new units that cool spaces more efficiently with lower energy consumption.
When recommending suitable systems, our team considers a unit’s energy efficiency ratio rating (EER), British thermal units rating (BTU), and a home’s size. The EER shows how energy efficient a unit is — the higher the rating, the more efficient the unit is. BTU ratings indicate how much energy AC units use to cool indoor spaces. Your indoor space’s square footage will determine the appropriate BTU rating for your system. We’ll handle all the necessary calculations and recommend a unit with a suitable EER and BTU rating to save on utility expenses.
3. Increased Reliability
While professional repairs can help get an older system back to optimal performance, it may not operate as seamlessly as a new system can. You may have to schedule multiple repairs over short periods, as old or damaged systems often break down. We can help you save money in repair costs by installing a more reliable unit than your current one. New units can operate for years without needing repair or replacement.
Our team will provide tips for increasing your new AC’s lifespan after installation. We advise clients to schedule regular professional servicing, even when their systems appear to perform optimally. Servicing can reveal potential issues before they arise and help your system maintain proper performance and efficiency.
4. Compatibility With Modern Add-ons
Older AC units are often incompatible with modern add-ons like programmable thermostats because their technology can’t support them. This can be inconvenient as you have to perform these tasks manually. You’ll likely have to switch off your system manually when not in use if you don’t have a programmable thermostat. At Mainstream Heating and Cooling, we can install programmable thermostats in your system. We offer smartphone-enabled Trane thermostats that allow you to control your home’s temperature remotely.
