Your home’s heating and cooling system plays an essential role in keeping you safe and comfortable. When it works well, everyone’s happy, but when it malfunctions it can cause sleepless nights and unsafe living conditions. While few homeowners are eager to spend money on a new unit, on occasion you must consider if it’s the right time to upgrade. Whether you are moving into a new home or your current system has finally failed, there are a variety of reasons to consider while making this choice.
Here are five smart reasons to consider buying a new air conditioner for your home.
1. Energy Efficiency
Older systems were not typically built with a focus on energy efficiency. Today, however, a better understanding of efficient energy usage and its importance to the environment means newer models are made to conserve energy, which keeps utility bills lower.
2. Smart Technology
New technology enables you to control your HVAC from an app on your phone (or other device), to program changes on a timer, and even to learn your preferences, making adjustments automatically without any effort required from you. These upgrades ensure your comfort is considered in the most efficient manner possible.
You likely have indoor and outdoor units that were purchased together. If one fails before the other (typically the outdoor unit does), then it makes sense to buy a new system, instead of replacing the unit that failed. Replacements are less compatible with each other, and the system is, therefore, unable to achieve the cooling efficiency advertised for the new unit. Consider it an investment toward the quality of your comfort.
4. Air Quality
Newer units are built with a superior ability to provide better air quality, which should be a primary focus for anyone, but especially for people with allergies. An HVAC system not only conditions the air in your home for comfort but it also filters out pollutants and other toxic particles.
5. Proper Fit
The size of an air conditioning system should be chosen based on the specific dimensions of your home and its layout. A unit too big or too small won’t cool your home efficiently, and you’ll end up paying higher bills because of it. A professional contractor can assist with determining the correct size needed, and if you’ve moved into a new home, they can check to see if you have the best system in place.
Buying a new HVAC system is a significant investment to make, both for your comfort and for the value of your home. When they run efficiently, we barely notice them. Therefore, it can be a challenge determining whether or not purchasing a new system is the best move. If you have come to the conclusion that it is, consider the variables of each particular system, and choose the right fit for your home.
