The Benefits Of A New Air Conditioner

If your air conditioner has hit its tenth birthday, it may be time to start looking around for a new air conditioner unit. Below, we have listed some benefits of getting a new air conditioner.

Reduced Energy Consumption

A major benefit of getting a new air conditioning unit is that it can lead to a significant improvement in your home's energy efficiency. As air conditioning systems get older, they start to consume more energy, while modern air conditioners are highly efficient and have more reliable components.

Lower Utility Bills

As your energy consumption decreases, it will also lower your home's utility bills. The new air conditioners are designed to utilize less energy than older units, so you will more than likely be able to see a drop in your utility bills after installation.

Increased Comfort

Providing your home with a comfortable environment is one of the main functions of an air conditioning system. However, similar to how an older unit consumes more energy, older air conditioners also have to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature, leading to higher energy consumption.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Air conditioning systems are designed to clean the air before blowing it to the inside of the building and are fitted with an air filter to remove the dust and contaminants from the air, increasing your indoor air quality. Unfortunately, many old air conditioners struggle to dehumidify the air from inside the room.

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. Our team at Spoor's Heating & Air Conditioning is here to help — get answers to 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. For example, the size of a new air conditioner that works for your building depends on several factors and variables, such as:

  • Amount Of Insulation
  • Amount Of Shade Provided From Current Shrubs & Trees
  • Area Of Sun Exposed Exterior Walls
  • How Much Sunshine Reaches The Building
  • The Total Volume Of Living Space
  • Windows, Including Age, Conditions, Number, & 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 offer suggestions for a new air conditioner based on what we believe to be the best fit.

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?

The total cost of installing a new air conditioner depends on a number of factors, including the cost of the air conditioner unit, thermostats, and indoor air quality components chosen. Our air conditioning technicians at Spoor's Heating & Air Conditioning can discuss the cost of your new air conditioner and explain why the cost is what it is.

Do I Need A New Thermostat?

Similar to air conditioning units, thermostats have made some pretty significant improvements in recent years. Spoor's Heating & Air Conditioning can help you decide between a basic programmable thermostat and a smart thermostat.

How Long Does Installation Take?

How long an installation will take is based on a case-by-case basis. The time it will take to install is based on ductwork, electrical aspects, plumbing, and more. On average, the time to complete an installation is one or two days.

Can I Install An Air Conditioner Unit Myself?

A new air conditioner unit is a complex appliance that should always be installed by an experienced and trained professional. Our technicians at Spoor's Heating & Air Conditioning have the proper skills and training to install any air conditioner unit properly.

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.
