If you recently had a service company come in to quote on repairing your air conditioner and the quote came in at 50 percent or more of the cost to replace it, you really should consider an A/C purchase instead. If your current A/C is more than 14 years old, in constant disrepair or just plain inefficient, the decision to make a new A/C purchase is easy if you consider these seven reasons:
If you have spent the last few summers in absolute misery waiting for repairs to be done to your A/C unit, think of how nice it would be to put those worries aside with a new A/C purchase. No more service calls or waiting on parts, just cool, clean air.
- Energy savings
Nothing helps keep your energy bill down better than a new A/C purchase. A high-efficiency air conditioning system can save you hundreds of dollars each year.
- Government tax credits
On high efficient systems, government tax credits can help you recover as much as 25 percent of your purchase price. When added to your energy savings you can help alleviate the cost of your new system.
- Eco-friendly refrigerant
New model air conditioners offer safer refrigerants that comply with the U.S. government mandates. These refrigerants are approved by the Environmental Protection Agency as chlorine-free and safer for our planet’s critical ozone layer.
- A new warranty
A brand new air conditioner will come with a brand new warranty, lessening your service woes. A new A/C unit can be added to your air handler or furnace without the need to replace both.
- Cool comfort
Newer units also offer you better humidity control, a constant, even temperature and more efficient delivery.
- Enhanced air quality
Humidity control reduces the chance of mold and mildew growth in your home.
