Is your AC system struggling to get the job done? If so, it may be time for a new HVAC system for your home. There are many signs that your HVAC system may be ready to call it quits, such as high energy bills or uneven cooling in your home. However, there are a few things you need to know before purchasing a new system.

When purchasing a new system, it is imperative that you purchase the right size for your home. Purchasing a unit that is too big (or too small) can result in wasted energy that will cost you more in the long run. With our Waldrop team, we will inspect your home during the estimate process and provide you with the correct size recommendation so you can experience the difference in your home.

HVAC Seer Rating Chart

SEER Rating

SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. This measurement indicates the level of efficiency of your system. The higher the SEER rating of your system, the more efficient it will operate. When your system has a SEER rating of at least 16, you can expect to save up to $500 a year compared to units with a lower SEER rating. When you are exploring options for a new system, make sure you are considering the SEER rating.

High-Efficiency Systems

When you purchase a high-efficiency system, you can always expect to have a higher quality system for your home. Although you may invest more upfront, this investment will pay off over time as you cut costs on your monthly energy bills. Not only do these systems help your wallet, but they are also good for the environment.

Always Hire A Professional

When installing a new system, make sure you are always working with professionals like our Waldrop team. Your AC system is something you don’t want to cut any corners on. Improper installation can lead to more repairs down the road and can void your system’s warranty. Ensure this does not happen to your home by contacting our team today!
