The Short Answer is Yes.
There are several key factors to consider before deciding if upgrading your ac unit will save you money. Read More…
- How often does a repair technician have to come and fix or maintain your system-
At AirVantage, we consistently remind customers of the importance of regularly scheduled HVAC checkups. Scheduled maintenance appointments will help your air conditioning system run at it’s best for many years.But there’s no getting away from it… older units just need more care and attention.There are a few things you can do to improve the lifespan of your AC unit, including following a proper maintenance schedule. Unfortunately, with our homes built all around the gulf coast, AC units will age faster.
If you’re calling to schedule a repair for your AC unit more than 3 times a year, your current system is costing you money to maintain. Make Appoint Now
- How old is your current unit and what is the SEER rating-
It’s well known that AC units that are 10 to 12 years old have lower efficiency ratings. Mandatory SEER ratings were established in 2005 and are attached to all new AC units. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio & the higher the SEER rating the more efficient the AC unit. The highest rated AC units available today are 25 SEER. Fifteen years ago the top of the line was an 18 SEER, but the standard was just 13.Note: Older AC Systems that carry lower ratings simply need more power to create cool air. The more power used, the higher your energy bills will be each month.But there’s another factor… Size. Size matters when it comes to your new AC unit because under-sized or over-sized HVAC equipment will also lead to inefficient temperature control.
Take a pause here and call AirVantage to schedule a load calculation for your home. Load calculations are the industry’s method of determining what size (tonnage) equipment your home requires. While there… request that our AirVantage technician inspect the air ducts your system has in place. We want to make sure they are designed for the best air flow and are that all the seams are connected and tight.
- New units may come with incentives-
Consider as an additional return on your investment, that you may qualify for manufacturer rebates, discounts or special financing when you upgrade to a new AC system. Yes… you may have to sign up to qualify to be eligible, but for some of the incentives, you can save you some serious cash.
