Is summer your favorite season? While most of us enjoy the sunshine and warm weather, no one likes to spend all day sweating, certainly not in their own home. Thank goodness for air conditioning!
However, keep in mind that your air conditioner is one of the biggest energy consumers in your household. We know no one wants to buy a new AC, but if it’s time, this will make you feel better about your purchase of a new energy-efficient model. The team at Herrmann Services put together this list of benefits when you upgrade:
1. Higher Efficiency Means Lower Bills
Using less energy means spending less money! Your upgrade could save you 20-40 percent of your cooling costs.
2. New AC Systems Will Have Fewer Breakdowns
A high-efficiency system uses the latest technology, making it both more efficient and more durable than an older model. Still, simple measures like cleaning the air filters and getting a routine tune-up can prolong the life of your air conditioner and prevent more costly repairs.
3. You’ll Experience Greater Comfort
Newer models do their job better. Your upgrade might allow for a system that runs more quietly or cools your home more quickly and evenly. Having an experienced heating and cooling company install your new AC will also ensure that it runs as efficiently as possible. Our technicians will make sure your furnace or air conditioner is sized properly for your Cincinnati home so you get the maximum amount of efficiency and comfort.
4. Using Less Energy Is Good for the Environment
High-efficiency air conditioners use 20-50 percent less energy, particularly when combined with other energy-saving measures. Using less energy not only saves you money, but it’s good for the environment too.
5. Tune-Ups Keep Your Old System Running Smoothly
Don’t run the risk of your air conditioner giving up on you when you need it most. Now is the perfect time to get an inspection to see if you should repair, replace, or upgrade your air conditioning system. Even a simple tune-up can prevent breakdowns, help your air conditioner run more efficiently, and get you through another hot Cincinnati summer.
