Air Conditioner Replacement

When your air conditioner isn’t working like it should, you may find yourself frustrated not only with the equipment, but also the high cost of operation. HVAC equipment that isn’t performing like it should will drive up your utility costs, as well as affect the comfort level inside your home or business.

If you’ve been struggling with your AC system for a short or long period of time, the option of air conditioner replacement may have come to the forefront of the mind. Should you continue to try to repair your existing system, or is air conditioner replacement worth the cost?

At AppleBlossom Energy, we recommend air conditioner replacement in a few specific instances.

  1. If you have had multiple repair calls for your existing unit but continue to have problems, air conditioner replacement may be the more practical solution. Especially if you will have spent 50% or more of the cost of replacement in repair costs, choosing a new unit will be the best option.
  2. If you have energy efficiency issues related to an outdated HVAC system, air conditioner replacement could lead to significant energy and cost savings in the short and long term. You’ll want to talk with one of our energy experts to determine what kind of upgrade will best suit your property.

When the air conditioner at your home or business is too small or too large, it may not operate properly. Air conditioner replacement in this case may or may not be the best solution to make you more comfortable and your home more energy efficient. If your system is sized too small, we may be able to help simply by increasing the insulation quality in your home. Our building science experts look holistically at the home to offer you the most cost-effective solution, and never push a “one-size-fits-all” solution.
