Most of us aren’t thinking about our air conditioners right now. Winters in Central California can be surprisingly chilly and heating is the name of the game when it comes to home comfort. But summer will be here before you know it, and when it arrives, you’re going to need a reliable air conditioner to see you through it. If your existing air conditioner is on its last legs, now is the ideal time to consider a replacement, and with a new air conditioner comes a host of new options for you to consider.
Among them is the possibility of a 2-stage cooling system, which allows you to alter the speed of the fan blowing conditioned air into the home. The system makes a lot of sense with temperatures like ours, which can be all over the map. It could end up saving you a great deal of money.
So you’ve decided to install a new air conditioner. Congratulations! Now makes a perfect time to do so, since fall has officially started and we’re going to enjoy months of cool weather where you won’t need an AC to keep your home comfortable. That gives you time to properly prepare for the installation and to schedule it at a time that matches your busy calendar, leaving your new system ready to go next summer. Among the first things you need to determine is the power levels of your new system. Indeed, it’s possibly the most important aspect of any new system.
With the end of summer comes cooler temperatures, and while we likely have a few more weeks of hot weather yet, your air conditioner has more or less come to the end of another season. Now makes an excellent time to take stock of your air conditioner and see if it can handle another hot summer, or if the time has come to finally replace it. That gives you the whole winter to schedule installation for a new system, if you decide that’s how you want to proceed. But is your air conditioner really ready for replacement? Only you can make that decision, but there are a few key factors that you should seriously consider.
