We comprehend that annual maintenance will prolong an AC’s lifespan, but when the time comes, the pros at Central Air Inc will be here to help you get the best air conditioner replacement for your home’s needs in Portland Metro. When you’re searching for a new air conditioner, there are many factors to consider and we’ll help you navigate them all to select the system that will be appropriate for your house and your budget. One feature all of us look 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 several other important factors to consider: Make sure your AC replacement is the correct size for your home. A system that is larger than necessary will cycle on and off too frequently, resulting in wear and tear on your new system and shortening its life. Likewise, it can be tempting to buy a smaller system to save some costs upfront. But, a smaller system can result in increased expenses in the long run if it’s too small to keep your home cool. It will run continuously to try to keep up and will have a significantly shortened life. You’ll pay more on utility costs during its life and you’ll discover yourself AC shopping again much sooner than you’d like. We can help you decide the appropriate sized air conditioner for your home. Ratings matter. Find the most efficient air conditioner your budget will allow for, because you’ll get the payback every month on your energy costs. Look for high SEER ratings. The higher the rating, the superior the efficiency. Look for a good warranty. We can help you find 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 loop about any specials, rebates or incentives being offered.
