As the weather warms up in Eastern Iowa, it is important to consider the state of your air conditioning system. If your AC unit is more than 18 years old or not functioning properly, (you have been experiencing issues such as Freon leaks) it may be time to replace your system. Here are some things to look for when considering a new AC unit:
Efficiency: A new AC unit can significantly reduce your energy consumption and save you money on your utility bills. Look for models with high SEER ratings (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio).
Size: Make sure the new AC unit is properly sized for your home. An undersized unit will struggle to keep up with the demand, while an oversized unit can lead to short cycling, which wastes energy and reduces the lifespan of the unit.
Noise level: Choose a unit with a noise level that is comfortable for you and your neighbors.
Features: Consider features like smart thermostats, zoning systems, evaporator, condenser, blower, compressor, and fan components to control your AC unit more efficiently and effectively.
