Residential AC Replacement
Replacing an air conditioner is a big decision for any homeowner. It’s even tougher if your old system breaks down when the temperature is rising outside. No one wants their home to be hot when the mountain sun starts beating down on your Glenwood Springs, Aspen, or Vail, CO home. Climate Control Company is here to make the replacement and installation process as painless as possible.
Choosing the right equipment
If we assume the decision to replace has been made, then the first critical step is determining the unique needs of your home. The correct cooling option depends on several factors:
- The size of the home (square footage)
- Type of construction (slab, basement, crawl space)
- Level and quality of insulation
- Number, size, and location of windows
- Overall comfort
Air conditioners are NOT one-size-fits all. A Climate Control Comfort Advisors will spend a lot of time at your home measuring, examining, and talking with you before making any specific recommendations. Proper sizing is crucial. Never let a salesperson tell you a larger capacity air conditioner is always better. That’s simply not true.
Energy efficiency should always be a factor
The SEER rating is used to measure energy efficiency. The higher the SEER number, the more efficient it is. Manufacturers seem to find ways to increase A/C efficiency every year. A rating of 13-14 is considered standard. A SEER rating of 15-18 is considered high efficiency. Ultra-efficient models can have a rating as high as 24. Climate Control will help you determine what efficiency makes the most sense for your home.
Proper installation is vital
Here’s a little tidbit some HVAC contractors may not share with you: Many different brands of air conditioners come out of the box using the very same components. It’s what happens after they come out of the box that determines how well it works. It’s why Climate Control believes installation day is the most important day in the life of a new system. Our technicians have the necessary tools and knowledge to install a new cooling system according to manufacturer specifications.
