How Do You Know When To Buy A New Air Conditioner?

Waiting until the last minute to do something, is NEVER a good idea. So why wait until your Air Conditioner is completely broken to contact your local AC Repair technician. Well, here at Bradenton Air Conditioner, we are never more than just a phone call away to answer any questions that you may have regarding your unit. Our main goal is to help keep your system functioning properly. Here are a few suggestions we can offer to you when the perfect time arises for you to purchase a new system.

Here Is The First Thing To Know:

A HVAC system functions properly when you have the adequate installation setup. You need to make sure that your air ducts have been sealed correctly. Another important thing is to inspect your insulation so that you are able to achieve to highest quality out of your unit. Sometimes, it could be as little as making sure the air vents around your house are the proper size. Having an incorrect sized air vent is the leading factor of air flow constriction. Once you have your setup complete, then will be ahead of the process when it comes to searching for a brand new HVAC system.

When Did You Purchase Your System?

We never really think about age when it comes to our appliances, until they break. We all say things like "Well it is only 2 years old", or "We just bought this", or Why isn't this working anymore? These statements are all very true. It seems like we only recognize things when something goes wrong or does not work properly. So, when did your purchase your Air Conditioning unit? If it was 10 or more years old, then you should really be thinking about looking for a new one. It is not a good idea to wait until your unit is not performing properly or it breaks down to start preparing. It is a wise decision that you have your unit regularly maintained. This will also save you the unexpected hassle.

Saving money seems to be on everyone's mind these days. All you have to do is look around your home and appliances to see if everything is working effectively. Check to make sure that you have had it inspected lately. Doing this will end up saving you money in the long run as well as save you money on your next bill. If you start to notice that your statements are increasing, it could be that you have an older air conditioning unit. By repairing or replacing your unit, you can lower your electricity statements tremendously and maintain the comfort of your home.

Seeing as how brand new air conditioning units are not really cheap, waiting until the last minute to buy one could empty your wallet very fast. If you are searching for a quick fix with your electricity costs, you may not want to invest in a new unit. There are other techniques you may want to try to lower your costs. Things like inspecting your air conditioning unit for ducts that may be leaking, making sure you have the proper air flow coming from the vents and checking your thermostat to make sure it is functioning adequately. If you have noticed that there are areas to improve, then we would suggest you fix them first. Afterwords, you will be able to decide if buying a brand new unit is the option for you.

Do You Have The Correct Size Unit?

Everyone seems to love big things. Big trucks, big steaks, big boats, etc. However that doesn't mean that you need to have everything big. This is especially for your air conditioning system. You would think that a larger unit would be more sufficient for your home, instead, the larger the unit the more space you will need to have for it to function properly. Our technicians here at Bradenton Air Conditioning, are experienced and will be able to educate you on the adequate size of unit you are going to need for your home. We measure the square footage of the entire house and base the size of the system off of your square footage. Having the right size is very important. If it is too small, then your unit will not be able to function efficiently. If the unit is too big for your home, then the system will have a hard time maintaining the air flow.

Did you know that the HVAC system in your home can also operate as a home dehumidifier? If you have purchased a larger unit than what is needed for your home, the unit will cool down your home too fast as well as shut down too early. See, your air conditioning system has a cycle that tells your unit when to turn on and off to adjust the temperature in your home. If working correctly, then the air that is cycled through your home is dehumidified, saving you money on buying household items to clean the air in your home. If your home is not cycling properly, then the combination of damp air along with cold surfaces can result in moisture build up and turn into mold. The problem with mold is that if it spreads around your home, then you will be suffering more costly damage in the long run.

Hire A Professional Company:

It is never a good idea to try to install an air conditioning system without a professional company to assist you. If you do it yourself and the system is not installed properly, you could possibly loose as much as 45 percent of the unit's efficiency. It is going to hurt you rather than help you when it comes to the savings that you were anticipating. You will also be saving less money hiring a professional company. If you were to do it yourself, you would have the find a company who is going to sell you the parts that you are going to need to install it. In fact, there are some parts that are not accessible to the public with a professional air conditioning license. So save the hassle and hire us, Bradenton Air Conditioning, to install or repair your AC system.
