Upgrading your air conditioning system can be a big decision, but it significantly benefits your home and family. Let’s explore why an AC upgrade is an intelligent choice, how to recognize the signs that it’s time, and what factors to consider when making this critical investment.

Have one of our comfort advisors help you get the perfect AC for your home by calling (801) 218-2187 or contacting us online.  After all, you have a partner in Western.

Benefits of Upgrading Your Air Conditioning

  • Enhanced Energy Efficiency: Advanced technology makes modern AC units far more energy-efficient than older models. This advance means your new AC will use less electricity to keep your home cool, lowering utility bills. Who doesn’t love saving money while staying comfortable?
  • Reduced Maintenance: Older AC units often require frequent repairs and constant maintenance. With a new system, you can say goodbye to the hassle of unexpected breakdowns and costly repairs. Manufacturers build newer models to last and include warranties that provide peace of mind.
  • Better Cooling: Have you ever noticed hot spots or inconsistent cooling in your home? Upgrading to a new AC system can solve this problem. New units provide more consistent and reliable cooling, ensuring that every room in your house stays at the perfect temperature.

Signs It’s Time to Upgrade

  • Frequent Breakdowns: If your AC seems to be breaking down every other month, it’s a clear sign that it’s time for an upgrade. Frequent repairs are not only frustrating but also costly. A new system will be more reliable and save you money in the long run.
  • Increased Energy Bills: A sudden spike in your energy bills can indicate that your AC works harder than it should to cool your home. Older units lose efficiency over time, leading to higher energy consumption.
  • Inconsistent Cooling: Do some rooms in your house feel like a sauna while others are ice-cold? Inconsistent cooling is a common issue with aging AC systems. A new unit will distribute cool air more evenly, providing better overall comfort.
  • Strange Noises: Banging, clanking, or buzzing noises coming from your AC is never a good sign. These sounds often indicate serious issues that could lead to a complete system failure. Upgrading to a new unit can eliminate these noises and improve your home’s tranquility.
  • Age of Your AC: If your AC is over 15 years old, it’s time to start considering a replacement. Even if it’s still functioning, it’s likely not as efficient or effective as a newer model. Upgrading now can save you from a sudden breakdown in the middle of summer.

Making the Right Choice 

Choosing the right AC system involves several critical factors listed below.

  • Size and Cooling Capacity: Selecting an appropriately sized AC unit for your home is crucial. An undersized unit won’t cool your home effectively, while an oversized one can lead to higher energy bills and humidity issues. Our comfort advisors will help you find the perfect fit for your space.
  • Energy Efficiency: Look for units with a high SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating. Higher SEER ratings mean better energy efficiency, saving you money on your utility bills over time.
  • Noise Levels: Some AC units operate more quietly than others. If noise concerns you, we can recommend models designed to run quietly so you can enjoy a peaceful home environment.
  • Budget: While it’s tempting to go for the cheapest option, investing in a high-quality AC unit can save you money in the long run through lower energy bills and reduced maintenance costs. We offer a range of options to fit different budgets and financing plans to make the investment more manageable.
  • Warranty: A good warranty can provide peace of mind and protect you from unexpected repair costs. We’ll help you understand the warranty options available with each unit.
