It’s official; you have to replace your A/C system. Nobody hopes for this day, and nobody looks forward to budgeting for it, but sadly is comes with the U.S. homeownership. So where to begin?
First, understand that the investment of a new AC fluctuates based on several factors. The first is your lifestyle and the other residents in your home. Are there health conditions that will require a specific type of air cleaning equipment? Do the family members in the home have a sensitivity to the cold or heat, or a condition (i.e., Multiple Sclerosis) that would require the home to stay at a set temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place inside the residence? All of these things will help choose which air conditioner is best for your.
The next variable to consider is the home itself. What is the number of windows within your home and where do they face? What type of insulation is currently in the house and what is the efficiency level of the ductwork? Does the house require (or do you desire) solar-power, gas, electric, etc? At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we will go out and assess your current set-up to provide the systems available depending on your home’s construction and unique characteristics.
The third variable to think about is which business to call. Though one business may have the system you want at a cost you like, be careful and find out if they are licensed, bonded, and confirm they are insured just in case something should occur at your residence. If a technician were to get injured and the company was not insured, it’s probable you would be held responsible. At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, not only are we licensed, bonded, and insured, but all of our employees go through a detailed background check, drug test, and are qualified to work on all major brands of air conditioning systems. We also provide a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be assured in the work we provide.
