The dreaded day has arrived and now you have to get a new A/C system. Nobody enjoys this day, and nobody wants to worry about budgeting for it, but unfortunately, it is part of the U.S. homeownership. So where on earth should you begin?
First, understand that the price of a new air conditioner fluctuates based on multiple factors. The first is your lifestyle and the people living in your home. Are there health problems that will involve a particular type of air cleaning equipment? Do the residents in the home have an issue with the cold or heat, or an affliction (like Multiple Sclerosis) that would that would result in the home needing to stay at a particular temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place within the home? The above details will help determine which air conditioner is right for your.
The next factor to take into consideration is the home itself. What is the number of windows within your home and which direction do they face? What level of insulation is presently in the home and how efficient is the ductwork? Does the house require (or do you want) solar-power, gas, electric, etc? At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we will come out and evaluate your home to provide the options available considering your home’s structure and unique traits.
The third factor to think about is which business to choose. Though one contractor may have the air conditioner you want at a cost you like, take caution and find out if they are bonded, licensed, and confirm they are insured in the event that something occurs at your house. If a tech were to get hurt and the company was not insured, it’s possible you would be held responsible. At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, not only are we licensed, bonded, and insured, but all of our team go through a thorough background check, drug test, and are trained to work on all leading brands of air conditioners. We also have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be confident in the work we do.
