While regular AC maintenance will keep equipment operating efficiently and at peak performance, there comes a time when every home needs an AC replacement. There are several signs to look for, such as:
- You’ve noticed a significant increase in home energy costs that’s unrelated to any other cause. Energy costs are probably the largest part of most household budgets. Older, less efficient residential AC units waste money. Dixie can show you how a newer, more efficient AC replacement can lower your monthly expenditures.
- Your current residential AC unit is old. If your air conditioning system is 15 – 18 years old, an AC replacement could be much more cost effective. HVAC technology improves all the time. A new AC installation equals higher efficiencies and less energy usage, meaning your bottom line may look a lot better if you replaced your aged residential AC unit.
