People live here in Phoenix because they love the heat! But, even if you’re a sun-worshipper who thrives in our Arizona climate, you have to admit — you just can’t live here without a good, reliable air conditioning system. With many of our sunny days reaching temperatures well above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, you and your family need an air-conditioned indoor environment you can count on.

What a New A/C System Can Do for You

If your current system is not doing its job, consider air conditioning replacement. A new A/C system can help keep you and everyone in your home (or business) cool on those toasty-hot days. With everybody enjoying cooler air, you’ll find that everyone’s mood is brighter and the overall feeling is calmer and more harmonious.

When you’re ready for a new air conditioning installation, be sure to ask the following questions before finalizing your decision on a particular system.

What Systems Work Best in Our Dry Desert Climate?

Our unique climate makes it essential that Phoenix residents use cooling that’s effective, reliable, and efficient. When looking for a new A/C system, whether for residential or commercial use, you want one that offers high efficiency in order to increase your savings. The high-efficiency air conditioners available today use up to 50 percent less energy than older units do. This alone may be enough reason to replace your old system with a new one.

How Long Will This System Last?

In general, central air conditioning systems last 10 to 20 years, but check on the system you’re considering, because you’ll find a great deal of variation in manufacturer’s warranties and expected lifespans. You’ll save money in the long run by spending a little more now for a better system because it will last you longer, and over time, you won’t need to pay for as many repairs.

Will This System Cool My Whole House?

If you have a large home, this is an important question to ask. You want a system that will cool all your living spaces, even the most remote corners. If your downstairs is nice and cool but the upstairs is way too hot, you may need to upgrade to a larger system.

Is The Duct Work in My Home Adequate?

Especially if your home is older, your house may not be equipped with sufficient ductwork to distribute cool air properly. If you feel that some areas just never get cool enough, no matter how hard your air conditioning system seems to be working, it may be time to revamp your duct system. In many cases, insulating your ducts is enough to stop air leakage and make a huge, noticeable difference in cooling efficiency.

Is This System Simple to Maintain?

You’ll want a new system that your local HVAC contractors can maintain and, when necessary, repair without having to order hard-to-find parts from obscure vendors located far away. A system that’s straightforward to maintain will save you time and money in both parts and labor costs.

Do You Have Any Specials or Rebates?

It’s always a good idea to ask about special offers, sales, and rebates. The more money you can save, the better!

Do You Offer Flexible Payment Terms or Financing?

If you’re concerned that you can’t afford a new, quality A/C system, talk to your HVAC contractors. They may have flexible payment plans, or they may be able to offer you financing, to help you with your purchase.
