Is An Outdated AC Unit Costing You A Small Fortune?

Many people don’t realize that their outdated air conditioner unit is losing them money. But perhaps you’re not sure where to start, as maybe you’ve never purchased an AC unit before. Here are a few reasons why you should consider investing in a new AC unit installation to replace your old one:

There is a new refrigerant in town: R-410A! This is the current standard within the industry for AC coolants, replacing the old refrigerant R-22. As R-22 will be completely phased out by 2020, and the fact that 90% of it has already been phased out, means it is currently more expensive than R-410A. In addition, R-410A is the more eco-friendly coolant.
It’s also important to note that R-410A has been more affordable as time goes on. The cutoff for the manufacture of AC units that use R-22 was in 2010, so if your unit was made before that, chances are it uses R-22.
Perhaps your AC unit doesn’t have the modulating technology. The upside of having this technology is that it makes your AC unit far more energy efficient. And energy saved means money saved!
An alternative to modulating technology is having an AC unit that operates at multiple stages. This is also a way to improve energy efficiency and save yourself money.
Another sign your AC unit may be old and need to be replaced is if your utility bill suddenly starts to rise, or you are scheduling frequent AC unit repairs.

Does Unpredictable Weather Cause Damage to My HVAC System?

When weather changes frequently, your system has to do extra duty. At certain times of year where you live, you may fall into that pattern: cold enough one day you need to run your heater, warm enough the next day you need to run your air conditioning. This pattern puts additional stress on your system, can impact its efficiency, and can also increase your energy bills.

Preventing Damage Due To Unpredictable Weather & Reducing Your Energy Bills

A programmable thermostat can help regulate your system. Smart thermostats can monitor energy usage and maximize your savings potential.

Check Piping And Ducts

Leaks are bad. They tax your system, reduce the air flow, and can make your unit work harder than it should. All of that can lead to bigger problems and bigger bills. Check the piping around your home and make sure it’s insulated.

Keeping Your System Free From Snow and Ice

Make sure your clear away any snow or ice that has the potential to damage your equipment. During other times of the year, make sure there’s no debris, plants, or yard waste too close,

Routine Servicing

Regular maintenance can find problems before the happen, leaving you literally in the cold, or sweating in the heat. This can also extend the life of your equipment. It’s a good idea to have your system checked by a qualified professional a minimum of once a year, but ideally during the change of seasons. You may want to consider a maintenance agreement to make sure your system runs efficiently all year long.
