Is it time to invest in a new Air Conditioning system? Answer these questions and see if it’s time to take the first step.
How old is your system?
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency suggests replacing your air conditioner or heat pump if it’s more than 12 years old, and your furnace or boiler if it’s more than 15 years old. New units—especially ENERGY STAR® qualified models—have much higher
efficiency levels to help lower your utility bills, and are more reliable than older systems.
Systems more than 10 years old use a lot more fuel than newer models. Review the SEER (efficiency) rating of your existing system and compare it to newer models. The higher the SEER, the higher the savings you can expect. We offer models rated up to 21 SEER.
How high are your repair bills?
Frequent repairs costing hundreds of dollars mean your service costs can soon exceed the cost of a new system. If you have been adding refrigerant to your old air conditioning system every year, be aware that R-22 costs has gone up dramatically this year. So air conditioning repairs in Toledo will cost a lot more this year. Also R-22 prices will see major increases each year as it is phased out. So consider that before you repair an existing air conditioning
Is your home uncomfortable?
If the rooms in your home are too hot or too cold, your current air conditioning system may be too large or too small, or the system may have been poorly installed.
Is humidity, mold or dust a problem?
A properly sized air conditioner or a dehumidification system removes moisture that can damage both your home and your health. Adding a germicidal light can help to eliminate contaminants at the source, keeping them from re-circulating throughout your home. Installing a high efficient filter system or even just replacing HVAC filters once a month also helps to keep dust under control.
