Believe it or not, it’s estimated that nearly 10% of all homeowners in the Phoenix metro area are forced to replace their AC systems right in the middle of summer. However, there are a few things you can do to ensure that you get the best possible deal on a replacement AC system even when time is a factor.

3 Tips On Finding The Best Replacement AC Unit

First – Always Define Your Needs Before You Shop

One of the biggest mistakes home owners make when shopping for a replacement air conditioning unit is they rush into buying without looking at the big picture. For example, if you’re replacing an older AC unit, it’s quite possible that the unit is at least 10 years old. The reality of the matter is that technology and manufacturing capability has significantly changed in the past 10 years. So it begs to reason that if you’re looking to simply replace your old unit with its current equivalent, you might not be getting the best bang for your buck.

Consider the following:

  • Always make sure to have a load calculation completed before shopping for a new AC unit
  • Always consider your future plans; including any remodeling, upgrades or other changes you’ll make to the home that might impact the capacity of your new AC unit.
  • Consider Energy Star® rated appliances as they have been proven to save you up to 25% on your monthly energy bills.

Second – Take Time To Look Into New Technology

Since the last time you’ve purchased a new AC system, technology has significantly changed. Today there are several new systems such as heat pumps and full-service HVAC units that have streamlined the home comfort living in Arizona. These new, energy efficient systems are also great at saving money on monthly utility bills. So, a good rule of thumb is to consider upgrading to a newer system – especially if it makes financial sense in the long term.

Third – Depend on Quality Brand Names

When shopping for any replacement AC unit, you never want to go with the cheapest brand. Your AC unit is designed to keep your home cool in an extremely high-temperature region. This is not a time to trust an unreliable manufacturer. Our recommendation is to look at trustworthy brands including:

  • • Trane Cooling Systems
  • • Day & Night Cooling Units
  • • Lennox Air Conditioning Units

All three have been dependable brands for over 100 years. And since Hays Cooling & Heating is an approved supplier and installer of these trustworthy units, you’ll be certain to receive a professional HVAC installation in Phoenix that will ensure the system will be in tip-top shape for years.

Making the decision to replace your older air conditioning unit needs to be one that is well thought out and planned. So feel free to contact an HVAC expert about air conditioning units in Phoenix, they recommend and always verify that they complete a load calculation before you buy.
