Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner06/01/2017Even with careful AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner will need replaced. We know that annual maintenance will prolong an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the pros 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 think about and we’ll help you navigate them all to choose the system that will be perfect for your home and your budget. One feature everyone looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Getting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained should give you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are several other important factors to take into consideration: Make sure your AC replacement is the correct 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 shortening its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a small system to save some money upfront. But, 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 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’d like. 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 get the payback every month on your energy costs. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the greater the efficiency. Look for a good warranty. We can help you find 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. Often, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you acquire a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
