When the temperatures in Bath, Pennsylvania, start to rise, you want a dependable air conditioning unit to keep your home cool. If you’re thinking about replacing your old AC unit, there are signs that can help you to make an informed decision. If your AC unit has one or more of the following four issues, it may be time to purchase a new model.
If you’ve called us several times over the last few months or years for minor or major repairs, consider replacing the older AC with a newer model. The money you spend on repairs adds up, and we want to help our customers save money. While a new air conditioner is an up-front cost, you’ll enjoy better energy efficiency and fewer repair costs in the long run.
Do some rooms in your home feel colder than others? Uneven cooling is frustrating in the summer, and if you rule out other possible causes of poor airflow — such as blocked registers or a dirty air filter — your AC unit might be the culprit. Newer models can provide even cooling in your home, thanks to their improved performance and power. They also have better SEER, or seasonal energy efficiency ratio, ratings.
If you notice a sudden noise, such as a knocking or squealing sound, we can diagnose the problem and repair it. However, some air conditioners — especially older models — are noisy all the time, which can interrupt the quiet enjoyment of your home. This becomes especially problematic when you have light sleepers or a newborn baby in the house. Replacing the older model with a newer AC can cut down on noise.
Newer air conditioners use energy more efficiently, which means reduced bills. If you want to keep more money in the bank, upgrade your AC to a more efficient model. Your savings account will thank you.
If any of these problems sounds familiar, we’re happy to help you choose a new air conditioner and get it professionally installed. Call Sullivan Oil & Propane at (610) 810-3992 to schedule an air conditioning installation.
