Summer Is Coming – Talk to General About a New A/C

Spring is turning to summer and deep inside you know it’s time for an A/C replacement. Last summer your electric bills were sky-high. You paid out a lot of money for HVAC repair. During the hottest days, your house was uncomfortable. But here you are, months later, and still procrastinating.

You’re worried about the cost of a new A/C unit. Other reasons for procrastination are the competing claims and confusing numbers about home air conditioning units. It’s hard to figure out which units are the most energy efficient and which manufacturer has the best reputation for reliability.

Make your very first phone call to “The Best Little Air Conditioning and Plumbing Company in the Desert”, General Air Conditioning & Plumbing. Our trained professionals are ready, willing, and able to help you sort things out when it comes to replacing your old central air conditioner.

Of course, we want you to do business with us. But before you hire us to handle your A/C replacement, we have to earn your trust by helping you make an informed decision.

If an A/C unit is 10 years old or older, a replacement air conditioner is going to be much more efficient. When shopping, you are going to see things like SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) and EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings. In both cases the higher the number, the more efficient the new A/C unit is going to be and the more money you will save on your utility bills.

There is a difference in how the two numbers are calculated and the General will explain which is most important for you. For example, the SEER rating is based on a high temperature of 83 degrees. But in our hot desert climate the rating has to be adjusted to make sure you are correctly comparing different units to learn the true A/C replacement cost.

You can also look for the Energy Star and EnergyGuide labels on a unit. Generally speaking, the label means it’s about 15% more efficient than a standard unit. Our clients always have a budget they have to work with, but buying the most efficient air conditioner replacement unit you can afford will almost always save you money in the long run.

The cost of a new central air conditioner should be just one factor in your decision. Buying the best quality you can afford is also important. The General features the Lennox brand, one of the most respected names in the industry.

The A/C installation cost is also a factor. But remember, a poor installation could mean your new replacement A/C system will perform just as inefficiently as your old one. The highly-trained technicians at the General will be happy to explain how they will make sure it doesn’t happen in your home.

General Air Conditioning & Plumbing knows A/C replacement is a big decision. But you know the heat is coming, and the time for procrastination is over. Let us help you decide which new air conditioner is the right one to make your home more comfortable and save you money. When you choose General, you can count on us to be there for all of your service, repair, and maintenance needs.
