Air Conditioner systems in the greater Carrollton area endure and warm, humid weather through much of the year. It’s important to choose a quality air conditioner replacement system with durable components that can keep your home comfortable. With so many new AC features available today, it may be easier said than done for making the right purchase decision. Take it step by step and consider the lifetime costs of your investment for an accurate assessment of your choices.
Air Conditioner Lifetime Costs
The price difference you’ll see between new high-efficiency air conditioners and standard models reflects just the difference in first costs. When thinking about cooling your Carrollton GA home, however, consider how long-term energy savings offset first costs of more expensive yet better quality systems. Your true investment is the lifetime costs, which is the sum of first costs, estimated operating expenses, estimated maintenance and repairs for the life of your new AC system.
Quality Air Conditioner Replacements
If you haven’t shopped for an air conditioner in years, you’re likely to find new technologies not available in your older system. Even comfort controls, such as WiFi thermostats, are completely different, offering remote access via your cell phone and multi-system integration.
Efficiency ratings have seen dramatic improvements, too. New high-efficiency models can deliver up to 50 percent energy savings compared to older models. Standard models won’t deliver quite the energy savings as higher-efficiency options, but they still offer much better efficiency and performance.
High-efficiency air conditioner systems generally offer variable-speed technologies for airflow and compression. Variable-speed or multi-stage technologies maintain smooth and even temperatures by ramping up or down to meet real-time cooling needs. This often translates into less wear, fewer repairs and a longer life span compared to single-stage models.
