June 01, 2017

Even with careful AC maintenance, the time comes when every air conditioner will need replaced. We comprehend that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the experts at WM J Kraus & Son will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Keokuk. When you’re searching for a new air conditioner, there are many factors to consider and we’ll help you navigate them all to choose the system that will be perfect 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 some 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, resulting in wear and tear on your new system and reducing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a small system to save some costs upfront. Nonetheless, a smaller system can result in increased expenses 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 markedly shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility costs during its life and you’ll catch yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you want. We can help you determine the appropriate sized air conditioner for your home.
  • Ratings matter. Look for the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll get the payback every month on your energy 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 typically needed to keep that warranty valid.
  • Rebates and incentives are always nice. We will keep you in the know about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Regularly, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you purchase a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
