June 01, 2017

Even with diligent AC maintenance, the time comes when every air conditioner needs to be replaced. We comprehend that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time occurs, the experts at American HVAC Inc will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in San Jose. When you’re looking for a new air conditioner, there are many factors to think about and we’ll help you navigate them all to select the system that will be best for your residence and your budget.

One feature everyone looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Choosing the right AC and keeping it well-maintained will give you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are some other important factors to consider:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the appropriate size for your home. A system that is too large will cycle on and off too frequently, leading to wear and tear on your new system and shortening its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a small system to save some money upfront. However, a smaller system can result in increased expenses in the long run if it’s too small to keep your indoor space cool. It will run endlessly to try to keep up and will have a noticeably shortened life. You’ll pay more on energy bills during its life and you’ll catch yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you want. We can help you determine the appropriate sized air conditioner for your home.
  • Ratings matter. Select the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll see the payback every month on your energy costs. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the superior the efficiency.
  • Look for a good warranty. We can help you find an air conditioner replacement with a great warranty, and we offer the maintenance service that’s regularly needed to keep that warranty valid.
  • Rebates and incentives are always nice. We will keep you in the know about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Often, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you purchase a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
