Worldwide, temperatures are on the rise, and it seems every summer lasts longer and has record-breaking highs. When it’s hot outside, you need to be able to depend on the cool relief your air conditioner provides.
If you step inside your Aurora, Colorado, home and notice the temperature feels uncomfortably warm and humid – or worse, that your vents are blowing warm air, instead of cool air – you need to be able to call a local expert you can trust. Here are the top three reasons to contact Affordable Plumbing and Heat for all your air conditioning services.
1. We Can Help You Choose the Perfectly Sized Unit for Your Home
Is it time to replace your air conditioner? At Affordable Plumbing and Heat, our expertly trained technicians are highly experienced in recommending, designing and installing the properly sized A/C system for any home. Affordable Plumbing and Heat can install, repair, inspect and replace every make and model of HVAC, central cooling, central air or air conditioning system on the market.
Professional HVAC technicians can not only perform an energy audit; we can also focus on recommending the unit that is best for your home’s needs. A system that is too big or too small will end up increasing your energy and maintenance costs over time, which is why it’s essential to choose a qualified professional.
2. Energy Efficiency Matters
If you need a new air conditioner, you want to make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck in terms of energy efficiency. Do you know how to determine how efficient an A/C unit is? Ask our techs about its Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, or SEER – a measure of how effectively equipment can cool your home, based on a seasonal average.
Just like the gas mileage on a new car, a higher SEER rating indicates better efficiency. The U.S. Department of Energy currently mandates a minimum SEER of 13 for all new systems in the northern part of the U.S. The newest, most energy-efficient systems have SEER ratings between 20 and 28. By stepping up only three units – from SEER 10 to SEER 13 – you can expect to lower your power consumption by as much as 30 percent.
3. Preventive A/C Maintenance Is Smart
Even if you don’t have reason to believe anything is wrong with your air conditioner, you should still call us for annual inspections and tune-ups. This is because being proactive about air conditioning services helps you save time and money. Nobody wants to turn on the A/C, only to realize something’s wrong with it. A well-maintained system is more likely to run problem-free, which extends the life of the unit. Also, if your air conditioner is under warranty, you risk voiding that warranty if you fail to schedule annual maintenance.
