Purchasing a New Air Conditioner or Heating Unit

When buying a new unit, consider the system’s Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, or SEER, rating. Systems with higher ratings will run more efficiently. Although they may require more of an investment upfront, you will see increased savings through your energy bill each month.

In 2006, the federal government created a requirement that new central air conditioners must feature a minimum SEER rating of 13. Today, you can buy units with ratings that are as high as 23. The SEER rating can be further broken down as such:

  • Older units with a SEER rating of 8 may cost at least $17,000 to operate the unit over its lifetime
  • A system with a SEER rating of 13 may cost you no more than $11,500 to run during its lifespan
  • A system with a SEER rating of 20 may cost you around $7,900 to operate over its lifespan

When Should I Replace a Heating or Air Conditioning System?

If your current heating and cooling system is more than 10 years old or isn’t keeping your home’s interior temperatures comfortable, then it may be time for a new system.

Heating and cooling units begin showing their age by failing to provide consistent temperatures in your home and frequently break down. A noisy system is another sign that your unit is beginning to age. Also, most manufacturers say the average life of a residential HVAC system is 12-15 years. In addition, if your energy bills are increasing, then you should consider shopping for a new system.

The Advantages of New Heating & Cooling Equipment

As a homeowner, you have several heating and cooling equipment options to consider purchasing. For instance, a new evaporator coil and condenser may be the option of choice to improve your system’s working capacity. A heat pump is ideal for Florida’s mild winters as it also provides warm and cold air.

By updating your heating and cooling system, you can decrease your heating and cooling cost by up to 50 percent. Furthermore, you’ll gain peace of mind knowing repairs should not be of concern for a while. Since your new unit will use less energy to run, your home will be more environmentally friendly.

Heating & Cooling Installation

Once you decide to replace your heating and cooling unit, your installer should assess your home to determine the correct system size. In fact, an experienced HVAC contractor is likely to use the Manual J calculation process, which will prevent you from buying a unit that is oversized or undersized.

If your home is older and this is its first heating and cooling unit, then extensive installation may be necessary. Your new HVAC system may need ductwork from the air handler to each room of your home. Your installer may also need to route the ductwork underneath the floor or through the attic.
