We enjoy very mild winters here in Hammond, LA, which means our heating systems are likely to see fairly light duties during the cold months. Our summers, on the other hand are long and hot, and when the temperatures start to rise, your air conditioner will need to do the job every day without fail. If you have an older air conditioner and you’re looking to get it replaced, now is the time to do so: when you can schedule the session according to your needs instead of racing to get it done in front of one of our Louisiana heat waves.
Reasons to Replace an Old Air Conditioner
If you’re looking at an air conditioner that is more than a decade old, it’s probably time to think about replacing it. But beyond age, you need to look at the system’s efficiency from month to month. Is it delivering reasonable service without driving your monthly bills up, or have you been paying more and more each month despite the fact that you’re not using any more often than normal? In addition, if you’re dealing with repair calls on a more regular basis – or even if you just have one, but it’s a big one – it may be time to consider a new system.
What to Look for in a New One
A trained technician can help you with specific details about a new air conditioner, but generally speaking, you should focus on two main factors. The first is the power output for the system, which should be matched to the size of your home. The second is the efficiency of the new system, measured by the SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) rating. The higher the rating, the more efficient the system.
