Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

Even with careful AC maintenance, the time arises when every air conditioner should be replaced. We understand that annual maintenance will lengthen an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the pros at Heartland Heating & Cooling will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Des Moines. When you’re shopping for a new air conditioner, there are many factors to consider and we’ll help you navigate them all to select the system that will be perfect for your house and your budget.

One feature everybody looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Choosing the right AC and keeping it well-maintained offers you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are a few other important factors to consider:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the right size for your home. A system that is too large will cycle on and off too frequently, resulting in wear and tear on your new system and decreasing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a small system to save some expenses upfront. However, a smaller system can create more costs in the long run if it’s too small to keep your indoor space cool. It will run consistently to try to keep up and will have a noticeably shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility costs during its life and you’ll find yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you want. We can help you determine 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 bills. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the better the efficiency.
  • Look for a good warranty. We can help you select an air conditioner replacement with a great warranty, and we offer the maintenance service that’s usually 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. Many times, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you purchase a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
