Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

Even with thorough AC maintenance, the time arises when every air conditioner will need replaced. We understand that annual maintenance will prolong an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the pros at Street Heating and Cooling will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Rapid City. When you’re shopping for a new air conditioner, there are several factors to think about and we’ll help you navigate them all to find the system that will be best for your home and your budget.

One feature all of us look for in an AC replacement is dependability. Choosing the right AC and keeping it well-maintained will 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 right size for your home. A system that is too large will cycle on and off too frequently, resulting in wear and tear on your new system and decreasing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a smaller system to save some money upfront. However, a smaller system can create more costs in the long run if it’s too small to keep your indoor space cool. It will run consistently to try to keep up and will have a significantly shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility bills during its life and you’ll discover yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you want. We can help you choose 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 utility bills. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the greater 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 regularly 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. Often, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you buy a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
