Summer is fast approaching, and countless homeowners across the country will be shopping for new air conditioners to beat the summer heat this year. Whether you are replacing your old unit or are putting central air into an old house for the first time, investing in a new air conditioner requires time, money, and thorough research. Here are some things to consider before installing a new air conditioner to keep you and your family cool this summer.
What Cooling System Do You Currently Have?
If you are simply replacing a burnt-out AC, the amount of research you have to do gets slashed dramatically — as does the expense. However, if you have decided to add central air conditioning to an old home that does not have ducts already in place, you have to prepare yourself. The first thing you should do is determine what kind of cooling system and vents your home has. Swapping out the AC in a house with central air is relatively easy. Adding a new air conditioner to a home with forced-air heating is slightly more complicated and expensive, but it is definitely doable. Installing new ductwork and building an AC system from the ground up is often possible, but you can expect to invest much more time and money.
Which Contractor Will You Use?
Once you have determined which services you need, you must start the process of choosing an HVAC professional with which to work. If you are installing new ducts, you may also have to hire a drywall contractor, plumber, or electrician to ensure that your ventilation system can meld with your home’s structure with minimal adjustments or ill-effects. Be sure to check online reviews and seek recommendations from folks who have had similar work done so that you can get the best service possible.
How Will You Pay For It?
Finally, you have to figure out how to pay for your new air conditioner. Replacing an AC unit is a significant expense, but it is nothing compared to installing new ductwork.
