WHY UPGRADE YOUR A/C SYSTEM?
Upgrading to a new air conditioning system can impact your health and happiness in many ways, including:
- Efficiency Upgrade: A new A/C System provides you complete control over your home’s temperature and humidity. Be comfortable from summer to summer while using up to 50% less energy than your older unit.
- Energy Savings: A new high-efficiency A/C system that has been properly measured and installed can save up to 20% on your energy bills.
- Comfort Upgrade: A new A/C system will adequately manage your home’s heat and moisture levels for a more comfortable environment.
- Air Quality Upgrade: A new A/C system will reduce pollen, dust, mold, bacteria, and other pollutants.
- Healthier Living: A new A/C system may reduce health effects that older units may cause, including eye, nose, and throat irritation, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. It has been shown that pollutants can cause diseases that show up much later, such as respiratory diseases.
- Reduced Noise: A new A/C system will operate significantly quieter than your older unit.
- Increased Home Value: Recent studies concluded that Energy Star homes sell almost three months faster than conventional homes at higher sales and per-square-foot prices.
CHOOSING THE WRONG A/C CONTRACTOR CAN COST YOU BIG.
Your air conditioning system is old, and you’re instead not dealing with repair costs again this year. You want to reduce your utility bills. You want clean, fresh air for your family. These are great reasons to replace your A/C unit.
You must choose the right A/C installer in DE, PA, or MD. Because your heating and cooling system are one of the most complex systems installed in your home, your HVAC service provider must be well-trained in dealing with all installation factors, from electrical wiring, refrigerant, combustion systems, and airflow through heating ducts. Safety for your home is critical. Your A/C installer must understand the proper operation of home ventilation and exhaust systems when working on your home to ensure that our HVAC system is properly installed.
How To Choose The Right A/C Contractor.
License, bonded, and insured: Be sure your heating and cooling contractor meets the minimum education and on-the-job experience requirements to be licensed to work in the heating and cooling industry.
- References: A professional heating and air conditioning company should have a list of recent customers you can contact to verify that the company performed the work promptly and to the customer’s satisfaction. See what customers say on their Facebook page, Google Reviews, or testimonial pages.
- Rebates: Depending on the type of home heating or cooling equipment you’re installing or upgrading, your project may qualify for rebates. Be sure to ask about what incentives are available for your project.
- Maintenance contracts: If you’re hiring an HVAC company for maintenance or installing new equipment, enrolling in a service company’s service contract program may give you added peace of mind. Maintenance contracts are just that, ensuring your HVAC system is serviced regularly by the company.
