When the summer heat strikes in Southern New Jersey, a reliable and efficient central air conditioning system becomes a necessity. If you’re considering a new AC installation, it’s essential to be well-informed about the process and the factors that will ensure optimal cooling for your home.
At Bovio Rubino Service, we believe in transparency, accountability, and delivering top-notch, honest AC services without any pressure or double talk. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll walk you through the key aspects to consider when replacing your AC system.
Signs You Need a New AC System
First and foremost, recognizing the signs that your current AC unit may need replacement is crucial. How many of the following issues have you experienced?
- Frequent breakdowns
- Comfort problems in your home
- High summer electric bills
- Your current AC is 15-20 years old
These signs suggest that it may be time to consider upgrading to a newer, more efficient air conditioner.
When to Replace Your AC Unit vs Repairing It
When faced with AC issues, it’s natural to consider repairing the existing unit. However, it’s essential to evaluate the long-term benefits and costs. In some cases, repeated air conditioner repair can be more expensive than investing in a new system. One good rule of thumb is that if the estimated cost to repair a broken AC unit is more than 50% of the cost to replace, you’re better off upgrading to a new system.
We know that it can be difficult for many homeowners to know what’s the right call when it comes to their cooling system. That’s why Bovio Rubino’s knowledgeable technicians can assess your AC’s condition and provide an honest recommendation that aligns with your needs and budget. We’ve built our reputation on being the local heating and cooling company with nearly half a century of experience helping Jersey homeowners make smart decisions for their homes.
3 Important Air Conditioning Replacement Considerations
- Correct AC Sizing: Properly sizing a new AC unit to your home is the best way to ensure it works efficiently and effectively. Bigger is not always better when it comes to air conditioning! Our team considers factors like square footage, insulation levels, and more to determine the appropriate size for your new AC unit.
- Energy Efficiency: The SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating of your new AC unit will play a big part in how well it operates. Higher SEER ratings indicate greater energy efficiency, leading to reduced energy consumption and lower utility bills.
- Air Quality Features: Consider features like advanced filtration systems and variable-speed technology to enhance indoor air quality and improve overall comfort.
Bovio Rubino Service offers a variety of AC systems from leading manufacturers like Carrier, and we’ll work with you to match your budget and needs with a central air conditioning unit that will provide years of reliable home comfort.
