Upgrade vs. Replacement
Is it time to replace my air conditioner / furnace?
There are no specific rules for replacement, as each system and situation is unique. Answering the following questions
is a good place to start.
Is your system inadequately cooling or heating?
Are repairs more frequent, or are you repairing the same part time and again?
Does your air conditioner always seems to be on / running?
Have you experienced unusually high utility bills?
Does your home have humidity problems such as moisture inside of windows and buckling wood floors?
Does your cooling or heating system seem noisy?
Are you consistently low on Refrigerant?
Pre-mature system repairs or failure is typically a symptom of a faulty system design, and lack of routine maintenance. Often times, customers have their equipment replaced without ever addressing the air flow problems that caused the old system to fail. At Air Monkey AC, our professional technicians don't monkey around when it comes to taking the time to evaluate your current air conditioning system and ductwork.
Is it time to upgrade my air conditioner / furnace?
Air conditioning accounts for a large part of home and business owners' energy bills. Older, less efficient air conditioning units waste energy every day, compared to new, more efficient units. Modern air conditioners use 30% to 50% less energy to produce the same amount of cooling as mid-1970s air conditioners. Consumer Reports state that new systems are 20% to 40% more efficient than minimum-efficiency models made even 10 years ago.
Before we begin an upgrade, our technicians will take the time to properly size and evaluate air flow needs throughout your home or business. A properly designed and maintained air conditioner, furnace and ductwork will not only last longer, but will be easier to maintain, and will operate more efficiently.
