Air Conditioning Installation and Replacement Services in Fredericksburg, VA & Surrounding Areas
Not all air conditioning systems can be repaired. When your air conditioning unit is breaking to a point of no repair, our team at Total Comfort can help you install a new one.
What are the Benefits of a New AC Unit?
There are many benefits to choosing a new air conditioning system. Many homeowners are concerned about the upfront cost, but they can reap the financial benefits in the long term with this smart investment:
- A new unit can lower your energy bills by functioning more efficiently.
- A new system can increase your property values when it is time to sell your home.
- Newer models can improve your indoor air quality, reducing humidity levels and the number of allergens in the air.
An AC replacement can also save you money on repairs. By not constantly having to fix a broken, old unit, you can save on service calls and prevent several hours of frustration as new repairs are needed.
When Should You Install a New AC Unit?
Our service technicians will do everything they can to preserve your current AC system, but sometimes it is better to replace your unit sooner rather than later. Most air conditioning units only last about 15 years before they start to break and their inefficiency is noticeable. If your system is older and experiencing more problems each year, it may be time to upgrade to a more efficient model.
What is a Load Calculation?
When our service technicians arrive in your home, they will conduct a load calculation to determine what size your space needs to stay cool. A load calculation takes into consideration the size of your home in square feet, the height of the area, and the region of the country where you live, and heat gain from windows. For example, a larger home with high ceilings in the South will need more power than a similar home in cooler areas.
This load calculation is very important. If you buy a system that is too large, not only will you overpay, but the system will cool areas of your home quickly and turn off before other areas are cool or dehumidified. You’ll have very uneven cooling plus use more energy. Similarly, a too-small system will run longer and work harder to cool your space. We use load calculations to find the perfect balance for your home.
