Signs That You Need to Invest In A New Air Conditioner

There is a good chance that your AC needs to be replaced if you have experienced the following problems:

Frequent Repairs: Are you having to call for AC repair and service several times per month? If you answered yes, then the best thing to do is to purchase a new AC rather than continue to pay for expensive repairs constantly.

Outdated AC: An AC has a normal life span of anywhere from 10-15+ years. So if your AC is at least that old, then the best thing to do is consider replacing your old unit with a newer, more energy-efficient one.

Warm Air: On a hot summer day, the last thing you want is for your air conditioner to emit hot air. If despite frequent repairs your AC continues to do this, it may be time for a new one.

Strange Smells: If a strange smell is coming from your air conditioner, it may be caused by a dirty duct or a burned wire. Contact an AC installation expert to see if you need replacement or repair.

Mounting Bills: When you invest in a new model to replace your old one, it can save you 40% to 60% of your current cooling expenses.

How To Select the Best Air Conditioner For Your House

The following factors can impact your decision on which AC to choose:

AC Installation Within Your Specific Space: It is a good idea to ask our AC specialists to help you choose an AC for your house or room. If it is too small, the space will not be cooled down and it will waste money. When an AC is too large far too much energy is consumed which causes your electricity bills to increase.

Climate And Weather: For high and more dry temperatures, you may want to have a high-performing air conditioner. A medium-performance air conditioner will be sufficient for moderate temperatures.

Energy Efficiency Requirements: Air conditioners that are energy-efficient consume a lot less energy compared to older versions. To save money, choose a high-star-rated air conditioner.

Air Conditioner Types

Knowing the right kind of air conditioner that you need can help you make your purchasing decision effectively and quickly. Your choices include the following:

Central Air Conditioning System:  The duct system that was built into your house is used by a central air conditioning system to cool all of the rooms at once.

Ductless Mini split: If you are unable to use ducts for airflow, then this will be your option. Mount it onto a wall inside the room or section that you need to cool.

Window AC: This is an old-school type of AC that fits in a window. Heat is absorbed by the inner side, while the outer side is comprised of a compressor that throws hot air outdoors. We recommend that you invest in a more efficient system than a window AC for your home and you. We understand there is a significant cost difference between the systems. However, a ductless wall system is an excellent long-term investment for your home.

What Are SEER and EER?

There are two ratios that measure AC efficiency: Energy Efficiency Ratio and Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio


The Seasonal energy efficiency ratio measures the efficiency of your air conditioner over the course of the season. To find this, the total number of BTUs (British Thermal Units) of heat that is absorbed from the air is divided by the total energy measured in watt-hours that the air conditioner requires.


The Energy Efficiency Ratio is an essential air conditioner rating. To calculate it, the BTUs are divided by the unit’s maximum cooling wattage. Higher EERs are more efficient.

Central AC Unit Installation FAQs

How often should my air conditioner system be maintained or repaired?

The best thing to do is call a professional for repairs and maintenance once per year to keep your system running at its peak performance.

Which EER rating should I choose?

The higher an EER rating is, the more efficient the AC unit is. So choose the highest EER rating that you are able to afford.

How can cooling be maximized from my air conditioner?

Be sure your house is weatherized and well insulated. To get the most out of your AC, repair leaks under the doors, in the attic, and around the windows, and keep the filters clean at all times.
