Why To Upgrade Your Air Conditioner
How old is your current air conditioning system? Is it the original system? If your homes system is over twenty years old, you may be surprised to learn that a replacement system can allow you to see an increase in efficiency of at least sixty percent. Keep in mind that the average brand new air conditioning system sold today can provide homeowners with as much as a fifty percent improvement in efficiency over a system that is between five and ten years old.
If your air conditioning system frequently requires extensive repairs, you may find that it is a better budget-friendly idea to upgrade your entire system in lieu of making the same repairs year after year.
When it comes to the selection of your new Lennox installation you have several options available to you. Before you set out to purchase a new system you should consider a consultation with an air conditioning service professional who will not just be able to help you to select the ideal system for your homes cooling needs but who will also be able correctly install the system for you.
Keep in mind that while it may seem like a fairly straightforward project for an ambitious homeowner, the installation of your new air conditioner should never be attempted unless you have been trained as an HVAC expert. The reason is that the new installation rarely just encompasses the switching out of the outdoors unit for a new one. There are complex adjustments that may need to be made to ensure that the entire system is working in sync with the new Lennox installation.
If you have a problem with your duct work will you know? If you have a problem with the inside compressor will you know? Unless you have spent extensive time learning the ins and outs of your homes HVAC system it is very unlikely that you will be able to quickly identify a problem with your system. It could very well be that the addition of your new Lennox unit resolves all of your problems; however, it can only prove to be beneficial for you to bring in the professionals to have them give your entire system a good once-over prior to the Lennox installation in order to ensure that every part of your homes HVAC system is fully functional.
In addition to your own routine maintenance, a once a year service check by an HVAC professional can help to ensure that your air conditioner provides you with years of excellent cooling service.
