It’s official; you have to replace your air conditioning system. Nobody hopes for this day, and nobody enjoys budgeting for it, but unfortunately, it is part of the U.S. homeownership. So where do you begin?
First, know that the investment of a new air conditioning system differs based on multiple factors. The first is your living situation and the other residents in your home. Are there health issues that will call for a special type of air cleaning equipment? Do the people living in the home have a sensitivity to the heat or cold, or an affliction (like Multiple Sclerosis) that would require the home to stay at a specific temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place within the home? These factors will help choose which air conditioner is best for your family.
The following thing to take into consideration is your home itself. What is the number of windows within your home and where do they face? What level of insulation is presently in the residence and what is the efficiency level of the ductwork? Does the house require (or do you prefer) electric, solar-power, gas, etc? At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we will come out and evaluate your house to help determine the systems available considering your home’s construction and unique characteristics.
The other variable to think about is which company to use. Though one company may have the equipment you want at a price point you like, be careful and find out if they are licensed, bonded, and confirm they are insured just in case something should happen at your house. If a tech were to become injured and the contractor was not insured, it’s probable you would be liable. At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we are not only bonded, licensed, and insured, but all of our employees go through a complete background check, drug test, and are qualified to work on all leading brands of air conditioners. We also offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be assured in the work we do.
