Frequently Asked Questions
Should I replace my old air conditioner?
If your AC is starting to need regular repairs, your cooling costs are creeping up, or you’re missing out on features or efficiency gains from newer technology, then you should definitely replace your air conditioner instead of repairing it. It’s also worth considering how much repairs will cost and how much time they might buy you before you need to replace it anyway.
Should I replace my central AC with a heat pump?
A heat pump is a great investment if you want heating and cooling technology on a single system with exceptionally efficient heating. For cooling, you won’t notice much difference between a central air conditioner and a heat pump connected to an air handler.
If you’re thinking of a ductless heat pump system, you’ll see benefits in terms of more granular comfort control and saved space, but the upfront investment will be higher.
Should I replace my air conditioner’s compressor or the whole unit?
It depends on the condition of the rest of your AC. If your system has other components that are showing their age and you’ll be replacing them soon, then you might as well invest in a total replacement. Replacing your air conditioner one part at a time over the course of a few years will cost you more and provide poorer results than upgrading when the time comes.
Skip a few emergency repairs and go straight to a new system unless the rest of your system is still looking great.
Can I finance a new air conditioner?
Our convenient financing options through Service Finance Company make it easy to find out if you qualify for financing on a new AC, with simple application processes and fast decisions. A new air conditioner is a great investment for maintaining your home’s value, to say nothing of comfort and convenience, so it’s worth considering if buying a system out of pocket isn’t feasible.
