4 Signs You Need Air Conditioning Installation
You may wonder why getting an entirely new air conditioner is a good idea. The most obvious reason is if your current unit is more than a decade old. In that case, a new unit will be an upgrade in almost every way. However, some other reasons why a new air conditioner is a good idea include:
- Repair bills are more than half the price of a new air conditioner.
- Energy bills keep rising.
- Your air conditioner seems to always be on, but your home feels uncomfortable.
- Your air conditioner uses R-22, or Freon, refrigerant, which is no longer being produced.
Older systems will start to have issues that cost a lot of money to repair, so choosing us for an affordable air conditioning installation will save you money in the long run. Plus, new air conditioners are extremely efficient, so your energy bills will likely be a good deal lower.
SEER Ratings and Sizing Your New Air Conditioner
SEER is short for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. The higher the SEER number, the greater the efficiency.
Old, inefficient air conditioners carry a SEER of 12 or less. In most cases, they use the now phased-out R-22 refrigerant. New air conditioners are rated from 13–21 SEER and use R-410A, or Puron, an ozone-friendly refrigerant.
Buying an air conditioner that’s 15 SEER or greater can make you eligible for incredible utility rebates through Xcel Energy and federal tax credits. Lakeside is one of the top rebate-producing contractors for Xcel, so we can help you easily navigate this program, get the best deal and enjoy top energy efficiency. Homeowners should consult with their tax professional for eligibility.
Besides choosing the optimal SEER rating, we’ll ensure your new air conditioner is properly sized for your home for peak performance. This includes considering:
- Colorado’s climate
- Square footage
- Type and number of windows
- Shade and sun levels
- Insulation levels
- Number of people in your family
By properly sizing your new air conditioner, you’ll have just the right amount of power to cool your rooms perfectly.
