Although purchasing a new air conditioning unit can be somewhat costly and can prove to be one of the biggest investments you will make in your home, simply repairing and maintaining your old A/C system is sure to be far more costly over time. When you take into consideration the long-term advantages and benefits of purchasing a new A/C unit, such as overall comfort and your pocketbook, upgrading your system may be a decision that will come easier than expected.
Here at South Nashville Heating & Cooling, our team of highly skilled and experienced technicians would like to share with you some of the benefits of investing in a new A/C unit, and how it can result in significant overall savings in the long term.
BENEFITS OF INVESTING IN A NEW AIR CONDITIONING UNIT
- Energy savings and efficiency – The efficiency of your A/C system is based upon the SEER rating for your system. The higher the SEER rating you have, the less electricity your system is apt to use to provide comfort and quality air to your home environment. Older versions of air conditioning units often times rate as low as a 10 rating where the more innovative energy-efficient A/C units of today feature SEER rating as high as 25. This means that older units use a great deal more energy to cool a home, causing an increase in utility bills and out of pocket expense for you. Over an extended period of time, you can imagine how much these added cooling costs can amount to.
- Tackling the R-22 refrigerant issues and regulations – The EPA, in 2010, banned the use of R-22 refrigerant in A/C units and heat pump units and implemented a phase out program on the overall production as well as the import of R22 refrigerant for servicing systems and equipment utilizing the refrigerant. If you have a system that still uses R22 refrigerant and require repairs to your system, the cost of the R22 is extraordinarily expensive. Heating and cooling systems have now been redesigned to use R410A refrigerant in place of the old R22. Once the remaining supply of R22 runs out individuals will have to either replace their old systems with a new one or else go without air conditioning
- Minimized maintenance and repairs – As is the case with any type of equipment, the more you operate or use it, the more worn out it becomes. With that said, when you’re A/C unit begins to wear out numerous repairs and ongoing maintenance will be required, both of which can be quite costly. Continuously putting money into your aged system, that is already not energy efficient and costing you a good deal of money, is not the best option. If you are having to call in the HVAC techs to repair your system, it may very well be the ideal time to invest in a new one. The new modern A/C units are specifically designed to run a whole lot more efficiently for a lot more years. Which means your investment will certainly give you all the peace of mind you need, knowing that you are saving both money and energy with a new system.
- Available rebates – Finally, when you invest in a new air conditioning unit you are able to take advantage of a number of rebates, credits or discounts that are available from local utility companies, as well as other organizations that further help you to save money.
