In hot and humid summer climates like Frisco, TX, air conditioning is a vital necessity for safe and comfortable living. HVAC equipment that requires frequent service by a well trained air conditioning repair technician is costly, inconvenient and always seems to malfunction on the hottest day of the year. For homeowners with air conditioning units that are 10 years or older, the purchase of a new, energy efficient replacement HVAC system should be seriously considered.
Qualified heating and air conditioning professionals can assess the operational effectiveness of a homeowner’s current model and provide a comparison with a modern, high efficiency air conditioner. Replacing an older unit with an enhanced a/c system can result in substantial savings on annual energy costs and currently qualifies for federal tax credits.
What is SEER Rating?
The U.S government has adopted a standard known as the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). This formula was designed to compare the relative energy consumption of competing brands and models of air conditioning equipment. A higher SEER rating indicates a more efficient HVAC system.
In climates where summers are extremely hot, replacing an older 8 SEER air conditioner with a standard 13 SEER machine can save as much as 42% on annual cooling costs. Higher efficiency SEER rated equipment can provide even greater savings with the added benefits of superior comfort and humidity control.
Don’t Install Cheap, Builder’s Grade HVAC Equipment
Builder’s grade heating and air conditioning equipment that came in your Frisco home is designed for installation in spec built housing projects. Unfortunately, some service and retrofit HVAC contractors also sell these units into the replacement market solely because of a cheaper price.
Equipment specifically manufactured for the add-on and replacement customer contains important features such as compressor blankets, noise reduction accessories, reliable and fully tested electronics, and comprehensive warranties. Builder models often have lower grades of frame steel, inferior electronics, reciprocating compressors and other sub-grade components.
Frisco Emergency Air Conditioning Repair
Air conditioners are under much more stress during hot days which is why they break at the worst possible moment. When a failure occurs, it is important to call a qualified, reputable HVAC professional that is trained and certified in all aspects of air conditioning repair.
Priority emergency service can be obtained through the purchase of an annual or semi annual maintenance agreement. Proper servicing of the HVAC equipment can also help diagnose any potential problems long before the failure occurs.
