Here we are coming out of the cold wet winter and into the warmer spring and summer months of the year. As the days get warmer, naturally we start to use our air conditioning that has been sitting idle during the winter.
How old is my AC unit? When was the last time I had it checked or maintained? These might be some of the questions you ask, especially if you realize it isn’t cooling as it should and now it has gotten very warm in your house.
You check your contacts on your phone, pull up your trusted HVAC contractor, call him to check your system and find out its days are almost up! You receive the installation estimate and wonder, how can this cost so much!!!!
When we are focusing on the aesthetics and accessories for our homes we are all too ready to spend the additional money on the extras, the best, the top of the line, because let’s face it; it will look so much nicer. No one says, let’s get those Formica counter tops instead of the granite when remodeling their kitchen. So why do we want to do the same with our HVAC?
Our HVAC is a work horse in our home. It is constantly keeping us comfortably warm in the winter or nice and cool in the summer. Is it something you’re going to take your friends and neighbors to your basement or back yard to ooh and aah over? Probably not, but if it isn’t doing its job, you and your family and any guests you have will know what is NOT working in your house.
Don’t go for bottom basement or even systems that are not American made. Trust me the money you save will become the thorn in your side. With lesser expensive or off-brand units you can run into serious electrical and safety issues. You could even have to replace cheaply made components within the unit, which will cut into your wallet and that money you thought you were saving.
Do your homework! Look into the mid and higher grade units. If you don’t have a trusted HVAC technician, ask friends, family, co-workers if they have recommendations. Any reputable heating and air conditioning repair and installation company will give you an estimate for replacement free of charge.
