Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

Cooling

Even with thorough AC maintenance, the time comes when every air conditioner will need replaced. We know that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the team at Guidry's Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Service will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Raceland. When you’re searching for a new air conditioner, there are several factors to keep in mind and we’ll help you navigate them all to find the system that will be best for your home and your budget.

One feature everybody looks 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 consider:

  • 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, which can lead to wear and tear on your new system and reducing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a smaller system to save some expenses upfront. But, a smaller system can create more costs in the long run if it’s too small to keep your home cool. It will run consistently 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 find yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you would prefer. 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 realize the payback every month on your utility bills. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the better 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 usually needed to keep that warranty valid.
  • Rebates and incentives are always nice. We will let you know about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Often, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you acquire a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
