Lower Efficiency Unit Replacement
When is my home ready for a new air conditioner?
Today, a 13 SSE air conditioning unit is the lowest level available to the general public. If you are still using a lower efficiency unit, you might want to consider a replacement for the coming Summer months.
Save Money on Utility Bills
Fun Fact: a newer, higher efficiency air conditioning system can save you as much as 40% monthly on your utility bill!
This usually means that if your air conditioning system is more than 7 years old, it’s highly likely you aren’t getting the minimum cooling efficiency now enforced by the US Department of Energy. We’ve even found that certain 10 SSE units to actually be rated anywhere from 6-8 SSE in practice.

When Do I Replace My Air Conditioner?
Having to replace your air conditioner is never a fun task, and we fully understand how much of an annoyance it can be for you to have to do so. That being said, like all things, your system will have to be replaced eventually, and if you’re noticing any of these telltale signs, it might be time to consider getting the work done sooner rather than later:
Your air conditioner is more than 10-15 years old. If this is the case, it is highly likely that you are not getting efficient air in your home, and you are likely paying more than you need to be.
Your system requires a yearly repair. If your system has started to act up repeatedly every year, it’s a good sign to go ahead and get it pre-emptively repaired before it fails on you completely.
You’ve started noticing an uneven distribution of cooling and heating in your home. This is a sure sign that your air conditioning system is struggling to keep up.
