June 01, 2017

Even with careful AC maintenance, the time comes when every air conditioner needs to be replaced. We comprehend that annual maintenance will extend an AC’s lifespan, but when the time arises, the team at Stieferman Heating Company Inc will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Jefferson City. When you’re looking for a new air conditioner, there are a lot of factors to keep in mind and we’ll help you navigate them all to find the system that will be best for your house and your budget.

One feature everyone looks for in an AC replacement is dependability. Selecting the right AC and keeping it well-maintained should give you years of efficient, comfortable service from it. Here are some other important factors to take into consideration:

  • Make sure your AC replacement is the right size for your home. A system that is too big will cycle on and off too frequently, leading to wear and tear on your new system and reducing its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a small system to save some costs upfront. Nonetheless, a smaller system can result in increased expenses in the long run if it’s too small to keep your house cool. It will run endlessly to try to keep up and will have a markedly shortened life. You’ll pay more on energy bills during its life and you’ll catch yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you want. We can help you determine the appropriate sized air conditioner for your home.
  • Ratings matter. Select the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll realize the payback every month on your energy costs. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the greater the efficiency.
  • Look for a good warranty. We can help you choose an air conditioner replacement with a great warranty, and we offer the maintenance service that’s typically needed to keep that warranty valid.
  • Rebates and incentives are always nice. We will keep you in the know about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered. Many times, you’ll find incentives through your utility company as well when you purchase a high-efficiency air conditioner replacement.
