The Benefits Of A New Air Conditioner

There are many benefits of upgrading to a newer air conditioner. Many homeowners immediately find a greater sense of peace-of-mind knowing a new unit won’t break down in the middle of the night. Others enjoy improved efficiency in both energy use and cooling costs for years beyond when it was installed. Upgrading to a new air conditioner can also improve a home’s resale value as potential buyers will know the HVAC system won’t need replacing shortly after moving in. Plus, new units are significantly quieter during operation than older units.

Common AC Buying Questions

When it’s time to buy an air conditioner unit for your home or business, chances are you have a long list of questions or maybe you’re unsure of what to ask. Spoor’s Heating & Air Conditioning answer six of the most common A/C buying questions here.

What Size Should The Air Conditioner Be?

This commonly asked question has an open-ended answer — it depends. The size of a new air conditioner depends on a number of factors and variables, such as:

  • Amount of insulation;
  • Amount of shade provided from current shrubs and trees;
  • Area of sun-exposed exterior walls;
  • How much sunshine reaches the building;
  • The total volume of living space; and
  • Windows, including age, condition, number, and orientation.

Spoor’s Heating & Air Conditioning provides a complete assessment and consultation with every central air conditioner installation. Our technicians establish an accurate calculation of the home’s cooling needs and make suggestions for new air conditioners.

How Efficient Is A New Air Conditioner?

It depends on the SEER rating of the unit, but every new air conditioner that carries an Energy Star qualification will have a SEER of at least 14.5. Most air conditioners, even ones that are diligently maintained, begin to lose efficiency by 10 years of age. A new unit may be as much as 70 percent more efficient than your current unit, depending on the SEER ratings.

What Is The Total Cost?

This depends on a number of factors, including the air conditioner unit, thermostats, and indoor air quality components, you choose. But Spoor’s Heating & Air Conditioning will always explain the total cost and why.

Do I Need A New Thermostat?

Like air conditioners themselves, thermostats have advanced leaps and bounds in the past decade. Thermostats range from a basic programmable style to a smart thermostat which can be controlled from a mobile device and provide energy reports. Spoor’s Heating & Air Conditioning can help you decide which type is best for your unit and lifestyle.

How Long Does Installation Take?

The timeline for installation is usually case-by-case. Our technicians account for ductwork, electrical, plumbing, and more during an installation but on average, installation is complete within one to two days.

Can I Install An Air Conditioner Unit Myself?

Spoor’s Heating & Air Conditioning strongly recommends against this. A new air conditioner unit is a complex appliance that should always be installed by experienced and trained professionals. Our technicians have the skills and training necessary to properly install any air conditioner unit.

New Air Conditioner Financing

Maybe you thought the air conditioner had one more summer left in it. Or perhaps other expenses unexpectedly crept up and took precedence over a new air conditioner. Whatever the reason, Spoor’s Heating & Air Conditioning offers financing to help this unexpected expense fit into your budget.

-Christine Riley

We recently replaced a heating and air conditioning unit at our rental. Spoor's Heating and Air presented a very reasonable bid for the work with higher end equipment than what their competitors offered. They were extremely timely and professional, both when the old heater needed servicing, as well as installing the new system. The new system had some difficult placement issues and they did an excellent job strategizing the best installation solution. My husband used to install these types of systems (retired). He observed the work, and was extremely pleased with the end result. We highly recommend Spoor's Heating and Air.
