Frequently asked questions about AC Replacement in San Antonio, TX

Typically, most AC units will last 10-20 years. It is recommended to check with your specific manufacturer to be sure.

  • The unit is not cooling your house properly
  • The unit is making strange sounds
  • Increasing energy costs due to lost efficiency
  • Older parts (some internal and not visible) may be deteriorated to the point of requiring replacement

It is best to have a member of our expert team properly diagnose the situation.

  • If your system is 10-15 years old, it is best to have it replaced as it is highly likely it is not as energy efficient as a newer system
  • Lower efficiency means the unit will be working harder, therefore placing greater strain on replacement parts than intended
  • The cost of frequent repairs begin to outweigh the benefit and cost of a new system

There are many, but the 3 most important are:

  • Cost - common practice is to choose one of the least expensive systems. However, they may be more costly in the long run as they may have to work harder and not be as energy efficient
  • Efficiency (SEER) - The Season Energy Efficiency Ratio. It is the ratio of cooling capacity to power input.
  • Size - Measured in tonnage. It is important to select the proper size unit for the size of your home, so it is not to be overworked. On the same token, it should not be too large either. It may work quickly, but you will not benefit from the gradual, even cooling. It will be constantly on and off, therefore overworking itself as well

More often than not, you can keep your current duct work. However, it may be best to consider replacing it at the same time as your AC system. Our team of experts can advise you on the best course of action.

Just like cars, regular tune-ups and maintenance will go a long way in extending the life of your system. Call us today to schedule your next inspection and tune-up!

Benefits of a full system AC Replacement in San Antonio, TX

There are many benefits to pulling the trigger on an AC replacement. Some of the top reasons are improved efficiency leading to cost savings, improved cooling performance, and ensuring the comfort of your home for years to come.

Improved Efficiency and Cost Savings

When choosing to go with an AC Replacement, a very important factor to consider is it’s SEER rating. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the unit’s energy efficiency. Over time, this can equate to hundreds – even thousands! – of dollars in energy savings for your home. Use our handy SEER Calculator below to see just what we mean.

With that said, it is important to note that the cost of the system must still be considered. While the higher the rating means greater efficiency, there is inevitably a point where the cost of the system will outweigh (or take quite a long time to recoup) the savings in energy cost. Talk to one of our comfort experts today and let us help you find that sweet spot in choosing the perfect unit for your AC replacement.
