What You Need To Know Before An AC Replacement (Part 1)
Replacing your current air conditioner is a significant decision not to be taken lightly. After all, it’s a long-term investment you will be making in your home. Therefore, it is best to take your time and do your due diligence so you are well-informed.
Here are several important considerations to review before an AC Replacement.
Know That Size Matters Before An AC Replacement
You may think having a bigger air conditioner is the answer to keeping you cooler in your home. But this is not the case. Bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better.
Count on us to recommend the right cooling system that best fits your home and budget. We will also address any concerns you may have regarding hot spots in your home, humidity issues, or air flow problems.
Ductwork Should Be Inspected Before An AC Replacement
If you decide to move forward with an AC Replacement, be sure to have your ductwork inspected prior to installation.
A professional AC technician will look for, and repair, leaks and cracks to ensure your ductwork is functioning properly before installing a new AC.
In addition, the ductwork may need to be cleaned. Be sure these costs are included in your estimate.
Permit To be Obtained Before An AC Replacement
The Florida Building Code requires all licensed HVAC contractors to obtain a permit to install, remove, or replace an air conditioning system.
This permit ensures the system in your home or business is installed correctly, cools your property efficiently, and more.
When you choose us for an AC Replacement, we will take care of the permitting process for you and make sure it is displayed prominently.
Consider New Technologies Before An AC Replacement
In the AC industry, technology is always improving to maximize efficiency and become more environmentally conscious.
At the end of the day, these innovative strategies help you save money on an AC Replacement.
For example, new refrigerants are being incorporated that are better for the environment.
Also, variable AC units are a smart choice for increased efficiency. They operate at extremely low speeds, making minute adjustments, only using the energy needed to keep your home at the set temperature.
Smart thermostats are also highly recommended.
You can control your thermostat remotely from your phone, adjusting it when you are away or about to return.
