Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

Cooling

Even with diligent AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner should be replaced. We know that annual maintenance will lengthen an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the pros at Ilten's Incorporated will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Cedar Rapids. When you’re looking for a new air conditioner, there are a lot of factors to think about and we’ll help you navigate them all to find the system that will be best for your residence and your budget.

One feature everybody looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Choosing the right AC and keeping it well-maintained offers you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are a few other important factors to take into consideration:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the appropriate size for your home. A system that is larger than necessary will cycle on and off too frequently, leading to wear and tear on your new system and decreasing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a smaller system to save some expenses 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 continuously to try to keep up and will have a noticeably shortened life. You’ll pay more on energy bills during its life and you’ll discover yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you want. We can help you decide the appropriate sized air conditioner for your home.
  • Ratings matter. Select 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 greater the efficiency.
  • Look for a good warranty. We can help you choose 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. Regularly, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you acquire a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
