When It’s Time to Replace Your AC, Consider These Factors


When It’s Time to Replace Your AC, Consider These Factors

If you’re considering replacing your air conditioner, you have a number of considerations to make. We understand you may be in a rush to get this job done since our variable weather means that just because our temps were in the 60’s and low 70’s last week doesn’t mean they won’t be in the 80’s or even higher in several weeks from now!

We urge you not to make any hasty decisions, no matter how rushed you feel during this process, to not make any hasty decisions. Installing the wrong air conditioner, investing in amateur installation, or not properly sizing your new cooling system can all result in detrimental consequences for your wallet. So before you write that check, consider some of these important factors.

Set Your New AC Up for Success

Did you know that by investing in the right air conditioner and the right installer, you can boost your cooling efficiency and save money on energy costs? Of course, a new air conditioner is going to automatically be more efficient than your old system that may be a decade old or even older. But that newer air conditioner can be even more efficient if it’s sized and installed correctly.

Proper AC installation involves doing a cooling load calculation to ensure your new system is underpowered (too small) or overpowered (too big). It also involves making sure your old system is taken out with care—you don’t want any important connections knocked out of place. Lastly, when a trained and experienced professional installs your new AC, the job won’t be complete until they make sure the system works as it should.

One more way you can set your new AC system up for success is by scheduling annual maintenance. Maintenance allows our technicians to fully inspect, clean, and adjust your system once a year. We’ll make recommendations for repairs too, so you can address them before they turn into much bigger problems. Setting your new cooling system up for success means you’re setting your home up for optimal comfort, and your wallet up for savings.

You Have Options!

One of the most common questions we get from homeowners looking to replace their air conditioners is, “do I need to install the same type of air conditioner?” The answer is no! You may discover that a different type of air conditioner will serve your home better. We are a Daikin Comfort Pro, which means we work with the best systems on the market, including:

  • Central Air Conditioners: These are still the most common types of air conditioners and for good reason! Today’s models are highly efficient and are a great match for many homes in the greater Denver area.
  • Heat Pump Systems: Heat pumps are two-in-one systems that provide comprehensive, year-round comfort. They’re set up like central AC systems, with one important difference—the refrigerant process can be reversed to provide you with effective heating too!
  • Ductless Systems: This takes heat pump technology a step further. As the name implies, these systems require no ducts. They’re a fantastic option for homes with multiple rooms, multiple stories, or simply not a lot of space for ductwork installation.

These are a few of our options. Please reach out to our team today if you have any questions. We look forward to guiding you toward the right ac replacement for your specific needs.
