Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

June 01, 2017

Even with diligent AC maintenance, the time arises when every air conditioner should be replaced. We comprehend that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time arises, the experts at Three Rivers Heating & Cooling will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Portland. When you’re searching for a new air conditioner, there are a lot of factors to consider and we’ll help you navigate them all to choose the system that will be best for your house 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 a few other important factors to think about:

  • 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 expenses upfront. But, a smaller system can create more costs in the long run if it’s too small to keep your home cool. It will run endlessly to try to keep up and will have a markedly shortened life. You’ll pay more on energy bills during its life and you’ll discover yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you would prefer. 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 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 loop about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Many times, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you purchase a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
