AC installation in San Antonio, TX can be easy as long as you rely on professionals like ours to make the service worthwhile. 

In today’s blog, we’re going to talk about everything upgrades. We want to make sure that you make a responsible decision when to comes to your AC installation. It’s the only way you’re going to make sure that this service is worthwhile.

When You Should Upgrade

Are you wondering if an upgrade is even necessary for you right now? These are the signs that an upgrade might be for you:

  • You’ve had your current air conditioner for about 10–15 years. Your air conditioner is set to last about this long. Pushing it past this point isn’t a wise decision.
  • You’re never comfortable enough. If you’re struggling to get cool during the height of the summer, then your air conditioner isn’t working well for you.
  • You’re paying too much. Paying a high amount for your energy bill all summer because your air conditioner is inefficient is a problem.
  • You’re repairing often. If you have to repair your air conditioner more than once every few summers, then you’re going to need to upgrade. Constant repair work is inefficient and it’s going to cost you.

What You Should Upgrade To

So now you’ve determined that you’re probably ready for an upgrade. What are you upgrading to? You’ve got options, here are a few.

Central Air Conditioner

This is more than likely the type of air conditioner that you already have at home. Just because it’s what you currently have, doesn’t mean that an upgrade to a newer model wouldn’t be a great improvement. If you feel that this type of system suits you, but it’s just being weighed down by the age of the system, then we can help you find a new unit for your needs.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are systems that both heat and cool a space. If you’re looking for an air conditioner that can also handle the chill of a San Antonio winter, then we want to help you find it. Heat pumps are great because they’re both effective and eco-friendly. 

Ductless Mini Splits

A ductless mini split is great if you’re looking for that “zone control” effect without having to retroactively chance your home’s design. Ductless mini splits put direct cooling right into the areas where you need it. They can also heat because, well, they’re heat pumps!

Bonus: Thermostats

The thermostat is a big part of your home’s air conditioning system. If you’re thinking of upgrading your air conditioner, then we’d suggest upgrading the thermostat as well. Smart and Wi-Fi thermostats are the new wave. They will help ensure that your HVAC’s system’s efficiency is up to par. We can help you with your thermostat services if you’re looking for guidance.
