When it comes time to replacing the air conditioner, it can be an overwhelming experience as a whole. Generally, an air conditioning system can last between 15 and 30 years, give or take. Depending on how well it was cared for including routine maintenance done by a professional, and the quality of the system, dictates the cooling system’s lifespan. Typically, the first concern most homeowners have when it comes to replacing the cooling system, is the cost. With there being several factors involved, we at Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning would like to briefly discuss the primary factors.
Types of Air Conditioning Systems
All shapes and sizes are available with modern air conditioning units. Prices can vary greatly depending on which option you are considering, from central air conditioners to heat pumps. Another factor on whether the system is single or variable speed can impact the price of central air conditioners. They will cost more than single-speed units because variable-speed systems cycle through various stages for optimal energy efficiency. However, you can avoid the higher costs if you vigilantly turn on and off when a temperature change is needed.
Size of AC Unit
It is important that the system be sized according to your home prior to any central air conditioner installation. One that is too big will cycle improperly, which leads to system inefficiency. A central air unit that is too small will work too hard to cool your entire home. The bigger your home, the bigger the air conditioner you will need. Our experts can ensure you get the perfect size unit by measuring the square footage in your home. Not only is the cost affected by the size, but it is critical you get the right size for your home.
Energy Efficiency of AC Unit
To determine how energy efficient the system is, air conditioner’s Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, or the SEER, fives you an idea. SEER ratings range from 13, which is the lowest allowed by the government, and all the way up to 28. The more your air conditioner installation will cost, the higher the number. Being that it will help balance out the initial installation price, the higher-rated, energy-efficient units may help lower your energy bills over time.
