Frequently Asked Air Conditioning Contractor Questions - Answered By Comfort Zone Air Conditioning

How Can I Tell If I Need AC Repair Or A Total AC Replacement?

It can be hard to make this distinction, but there are a few red flags that indicate a replacement is necessary. First, there is the age of your unit to consider. If it's more than a decade old when it starts malfunctioning, then you might be better off just replacing it. These older units are likely close to the end of their service lives, and AC repair will only be a temporary fix as their performance continues to decline over time. Secondly, if you're having to schedule multiple repair jobs in a short time, then it's probably more cost-efficient to replace the unit than to keep racking up repair bills. Lastly, take into account your home's energy costs. If you're paying excessively high electricity bills each month because of your AC unit running inefficiently, then an upgraded replacement may be necessary. New units can cool your home adequately without draining so much energy from your house. If you're still unsure, then it's best to call your air conditioning contractor to assess the state of your home's HVAC system and determine whether it's time for a replacement.

What Can I Do To Reduce My HVAC-Related Energy Costs?

Routine AC maintenance is the key to keeping AC-related energy expenses down. Maintenance services and duct cleaning and sealing prevent leaks and malfunctions that cause your AC system to pull more electricity than necessary while it's running. You can also implement small changes in your daily routine such as using ceiling fans to help cool your home. This takes some of the workload off of your AC unit so you don't have to run it so much. Ensuring that your home is well insulated is another smart move as good insulation prevents conditioned air from escaping your house.

Why Is Duct Sealing Important?

Duct sealing is critical to keeping your home's energy efficiency at its peak and reducing utility costs. Over time, your air ducts will develop leaks that allow conditioned air to escape from your house. Consequently, your AC unit will have to work harder to cool your home which results in higher electricity bills throughout the year. It also leads to reduced comfort in your home despite your AC constantly running. Scheduling duct sealing as needed prevents these problems and ensures your AC system is running efficiently.
