Air Conditioning Replacement
R&D Heating and Air is here to provide you with trustworthy, affordable, and reliable air conditioning replacement. If you have an air conditioner that isn’t as cold as it used to be, or your air conditioner is over ten years old, it may be time to consider replacing your air conditioner. On average, an air conditioner will last 10-20 years based on the make, model, usage, and maintenance over the years.
How do you know when it is time to replace your air conditioner? Air conditioners tend to show signs of aging before breaking down. Here are some warning signs to watch for when you are evaluating your air conditioner;
- Air conditioner is more than ten years old
- Air conditioner isn’t as cold as it used to be
- Air conditioner frequently breaks down
- Energy bills have continually increased
Air Conditioner Replacement
How can you determine the best air conditioning replacement for your home’s cooling needs? Should you get rid of a traditional air conditioner and switch to a mini-ductless air conditioner? We work with you to find the best air conditioner to meet your budget and your home’s needs.
Central Air Conditioning Replacement
When you plan to replace your existing central air conditioner, you will receive a similar unit to your existing system. However, modern solutions do not use Freon, and they use R140A refrigerant. New central air conditioners use less energy and can be programmed with Smart thermostats to regulate energy consumption.
Ducted air conditioners have two main units installed, the outdoor unit and the indoor unit. The outdoor unit includes the condenser and compressor, while the indoor unit has the evaporator coils and air handler. The cool air is pushed through the home with the blower motor shared with the furnace.
Central air conditioners will cool the entire home at once, which may not be the best cooling option for homeowners that do not use all of the rooms in their home. Central air conditioners consume more energy from ductless HVAC systems, which may be a motivating factor to switch units if your current central air conditioner is breaking down.
Another way to keep your home cool is by upgrading to a modern ductless mini-split air conditioner. Ductless systems allow you to do away with all the excess ductwork. Ductless air conditioners are beneficial if you only want to cool a few rooms in the home versus the entire home.
Indoor mini-split systems combine an outdoor unit compressor and an indoor unit with a condenser. Indoor units are mounted to the wall and have a blower motor to push the home’s cold air. Indoor and outdoor units have tubing and refrigerant that circulate and provide cold air to the room. Each room will get a small unit installed on the walls and converted to heaters in the winter.
Ductless mini-split HVAC systems are energy efficient and can be controlled by your smartphone. Controlling the rooms’ individual temperature in the home makes it easier for everyone to enjoy a comfortable temperature instead of having some rooms colder than others.
