It’s official; you have to purchase a new air conditioning system. Nobody hopes for this day, and nobody enjoys budgeting for it, but alas, ‘tis part of the U.S. homeownership. So where on earth should you begin?
First, realize that the price of a new AC fluctuates based on many factors. The first is your living situation and the other residents in your home. Are there health conditions that will call for a special type of air filtration system? Do the residents in the home have any problems with warmth or coolness, or a disorder (such as Multiple Sclerosis) that would require the home to stay at a specific temperature or humidity level? What recreation takes place in the residence? The above details will help decide which A/C system is right for your home.
The following thing to examine is your actual home. How many windows do you have and where do they face? What type of insulation is presently in the home and how efficient is the ductwork? Does the house require (or do you want) gas, electric, solar-power, etc? At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we will go out and assess your house to provide the choices available based on your home’s construction and unique characteristics.
The additional thing to think about is which business to use. Though one business may have the equipment you want at a cost you like, make sure you find out if they are licensed and bonded, and confirm they are insured in case something happens at your home. If a contractor were to get injured and the company was not insured, it’s possible you would be held responsible. At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we are not only bonded, licensed, and insured, but all of our workers go through a complete background check, drug test, and are trained to work on all major brands of A/C systems. We also have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be confident in the work we do.
