We typically experience hot summers here in Papillion, NE, so AC installation is essential to keeping your home comfortably cool. Whether you are putting a brand new system into a home under construction or require AC replacement for an older system that is no longer working properly, the John Henry's Plumbing, Heating, Air, and Electrical team can help. Here’s what you need to know about air conditioning installation.
"Kaleb was extremely proficient and professional. He communicated all the work he did and made several recommendations which were greatly appreciated." - Michael T.
The initial AC installation is generally done while a home is under construction. This is because that is the easiest, most convenient time to install the requisite ductwork for central AC. Of course, it is still entirely possible to put in ducts in a completed home, but the process will require some demolition to gain access to the inner workings of the home. This can make the project more complex, which can increase the cost.
For the most part, though, if you are looking for AC installation, what you likely actually need is AC replacement. Most air conditioners can last 15 to 20 years before needing to be replaced if you care for them properly with prompt repairs and annual tune-ups. However, even the highest-quality unit won’t last forever, no matter how well you care for it.
If you notice any of the following signs, it’s probably time for AC replacement:
System over 20 years old
Rising cooling costs
Taking longer than usual to cool your home
System not coming on
Warm air from vents
When you call for HVAC service, your technician will first inspect your equipment. They can then let you know whether they can repair it or it needs to be replaced. They can also help you weigh your options to make an informed decision. While repairing the system may be possible, it isn’t always the best option.
Although it may stave off replacement for a little while, you can get much greater energy efficiency with a newer system, which can save you money in the long run. Don’t be shy about asking plenty of questions so you can make the right decision for your home.
