Things to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner06/01/2017Even with careful AC maintenance, there is a time when every air conditioner should be replaced. We know that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the pros at Patterson & Stirling Inc will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Erie. When you’re searching for a new air conditioner, there are many factors to think about and we’ll help you navigate them all to find the system that will be best for your house and your budget. One feature everybody looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Selecting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained offers you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are some other important factors to think about: Make sure your AC replacement is the right size for your home. A system that is larger than necessary will cycle on and off too frequently, resulting in wear and tear on your new system and shortening its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a littler system to save some expenses upfront. Nonetheless, a smaller system can result in increased expenses in the long run if it’s too small to keep your house cool. It will run continuously to try to keep up and will have a significantly shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility bills during its life and you’ll catch yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you’d like. We can help you choose the appropriate sized air conditioner for your home. Ratings matter. Look for the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll see the payback every month on your utility bills. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the superior the efficiency. Look for a good warranty.

Rebates and incentives are always nice. We will keep you in the know about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered.
