It can be an overwhelming experience as a whole when it comes time to replacing your aging and/or failing air conditioner. Give or take, an air conditioning system can last between 15 and 30 years, usually. The cooling system’s lifespan, depending on how well it was cared for including routine maintenance done by a professional, and the quality of the system. When it comes to replacing the cooling system, the first concern most homeowners are the cost. The factors and considerations entailing the cost of a replacement unit is what we at Hal Mechanical would like to share today.
Types of Air Conditioning System
With modern air conditioning units, all shapes and sizes are available. From central air conditioners to heat pumps, prices can vary greatly depending on which option you are considering. Also, impacting the price of central air conditioners is whether the system is single or variable speed, which is another factor. Because variable-speed systems cycle through various stages for optimal energy efficiency, they will cost more than single-speed units. When a temperature change is needed, you can avoid the higher costs if you vigilantly turn on and off, however.
How Do I Calculate what Size Air Conditioner I Need?
Prior to any central air conditioner installation, it is important that the system be sized according to your home. An inefficient system stems from one that is too big and will cycle improperly. In order to cool your entire home, a central air unit that is too small will work too hard. By measuring the square footage in your home, our experts can ensure you get the perfect size unit. It is critical you get the right size for your home for long-term costs and initial costs are affected by the size unit you need.
What is a Good Energy Efficiency Ratio for Air Conditioners?
You get an idea on how energy efficient by an air conditioner’s Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, or the SEER. Ranging from 13, which is the lowest allowed by the government, and all the way up to 28, the SEER range is a necessary factory to determine how energy efficient the system. The higher the number, the more your air conditioner installation will cost. However, when you consider the savings over time, the installation cost is worth the higher-rated, energy-efficient units.
