When your air conditioner hits the 10-year mark or if your unit is nickel and diming you with constant repairs. It’s time to start thinking about a new cooling system. Though you know a new AC will bring you many years of cool air. Not all Pittsburgh area homeowners know to expect the many additional perks of a new cooling system. Improved indoor air quality, lower utility bills, and more! Look forward to these six benefits of a new AC.
Reduced Energy Consumption
Air conditioners have come a long way in the past 10 or 20 years. That’s good news for your household energy consumption. One of the biggest benefits a new AC offers is a significant improvement in energy efficiency, especially when compared to your current cooling system.
At Spurk HVAC, we recommend looking for Energy Star-certified unit. Models that have Energy Star certification must meet strict efficiency standards.
Lower Utility Bills
With reduced energy consumption comes lower utility bills. If you want to translate your energy savings into dollars and cents, check the yellow EnergyGuide label.
This label estimates the average electricity the unit will use over the course of a year. It also calculates the estimated annual operating cost. You might be surprised at just how much money you’ll save by upgrading to a new air conditioner, especially when you multiply the savings over the average life of the system even if the upfront cost for a more energy-efficient unit may be slightly higher.
As air conditioners age, they don’t always keep you quite as cool. Whether it’s due to a malfunction, a leak in your refrigerant line, or just general wear-and-tear. With cutting-edge systems from American Standard and Mitsubishi Electric, however, you can look forward to unrivaled comfort.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Along with cooling your home, air conditioners are responsible for keeping your indoor air clean. The newest air conditioners offer indoor air quality technology that’s more powerful than ever before. This new technology offers superior air purification, humidity control, and even ventilation.
If your home has long struggled with humidity or ventilation, most new air conditioners are compatible with HVAC add-ons. Such as the REME-HALO or Aprilaire’s line of air cleaners. Ask our team about energy recovery ventilators (ERV’s) and whole-home dehumidifiers to take your indoor air quality to profound new heights.
Want to make sure your new air conditioner lasts as long as possible? Modern air conditioners are designed to perform at a high level for at least a decade.
As with any mechanical unit, regular maintenance is key to making sure your system is operating at peak performance and is receiving the care it needs to last for years. Ask our team about joining the Spurk HVAC Comfort Club and take the hassle out of maintaining your system.
Older air conditioners aren’t always compatible with high-tech features or add-ons. You’d be surprised at the number of calls we receive for air conditioning problems after a homeowner has installed a high-tech thermostat. Some units are just incompatible with modern tech.
Most new cooling systems have a long list of options. For instance, if you’ve been waiting to invest in zoning systems or switch to a smart thermostat, you can finally do both with a new air conditioner. From custom cooling options to energy-efficient features, high-tech air conditioners have it all.
