Replacing your air conditioner can be a real pain for homeowners. The costs, the disruption to your normal routine, having workers in your home for who knows how long and the inconvenience of being without AC all combine to make the whole experience a rather stressful undertaking.

When you are installing a new air conditioning system in your home, you should remember that you might need a different sized system than the one you currently have for peak energy efficiency. If you have improved the energy efficiency of your home by adding new windows and sealing air leaks, you might be able to use a smaller system to keep your home comfortable. On the other hand, if you have added rooms to your home, you might need a larger AC system for all areas to be cooled evenly. A load calculation can determine what size AC is right for your home’s needs.
When to Replace Your AC
There are several reasons why you might need to replace your old air conditioning system, but the following are among the more common we see:
- The old system is worn out or breaking down often. There comes a point when it no longer makes sense to spend so much on repairs, and it would be better to just replace the whole thing than continue to get it fixed.
- Saving on energy bills with a more efficient system. Today’s air conditioning systems have gotten so efficient that even after the cost of buying and installing a new system, you still wind up saving money in the long run because of the lower energy usage.
- Upgrading from a smaller system to one with larger capacity. Maybe your old window unit isn’t cutting it anymore and you want central air conditioning so you can keep the whole house comfortable with a thermostat. Or maybe you just remodeled and added on a new room and need a larger system to compensate for the extra space. Either way, it’s probably time for air conditioning system replacement.
These are just a few common situations in which replacement is usually the best option. Whether you’re in one of the situations outline above or you’re considering replacement for another reason all together, it’s important to approach it in the right way.
New AC System Options
While starting an AC replacement project is something most homeowners dread, it’s important to remember that this process does present a few positive opportunities. Primarily, you get to decide whether you want to stick with the same type of configuration you used to have, or change to something new that might suit your needs better.
If you opt to upgrade or just get something new, you have perfect opportunity to get exactly what your family needs. Maybe your central air conditioning system was great for the first few years, but after adding on a bedroom as your family grew, you found it couldn’t keep up. Now is the perfect time to have the unit replaced with one that has a higher capacity and can keep your larger house comfortable for the whole family.
