How do I know if I need a new air conditioner?
Is your air conditioner is over 10 years old and/or making strange noises? If so you may be in need of a system replacement. As our AC systems age, they lose efficiency in turn costing us more in electrical bills. An older air conditioner can also decrease the comfort of our home. If you are considering a new air conditioner for your home we recommend calling for a free system replacement estimate to determine the appropriate unit for your home and also your family.
How much does it cost to replace a central air conditioning unit?
The price to replace your existing AC system varies based on several variables. From the size of your home to the SEER of your new AC unit, there are many things that come into play when determining the cost of replacing your AC system. We recommend calling a licensed HVAC professional to help determine which size and also which SEER unit is right for your indoor environment.
What does SEER mean in AC?
SEER stands for seasonal energy efficiency rating. AC systems have different efficiencies. Determining the right SEER for your home can be done by a certified HVAC technician.
