AIR CONDITIONER REPLACEMENT // FORT COLLINS
If your home’s air conditioner and cooling system are out of date, inefficient, or simply not living up to its prior glory, it might be time to replace your air conditioning unit.
To best decide whether repair or replacement is best, let our HVAC experts at Bauer Mechanical inspect and diagnose your air conditioning unit. A new system may use less than half the electricity of an older system, saving you money and keeping your home comfortable for years to come. Manufacturers are also required to use refrigerant that keeps the planet’s ozone layer in tact (non-chlorofluorocarbon), as of 2010. Also, your air conditioning unit’s Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, or SEER, may be lower if it’s over a decade old. Today, the minimum standard SEER allowed by federal law is 13.
Replacing your old air conditioning unit to a new, high-efficiency model can also increase your home energy savings over time. Yes, the most energy-efficient air conditioning unit models are costly, but pay for themselves over compounded months of savings. Ask one of our experts for more information.
Your home’s central air system also includes the ducts system installed throughout your home. Our technicians can easily identify if your duct system is leaking and can re-seal vents that need attention, before deciding whether to replace your air conditioning unit. Your home cooling system may require duct system improvements along with an air conditioner replacement, depending on age and condition.
With your decision to replace your air conditioner comes our expertise in what size unit your home requires. A unit that’s too big for your home may cycle air more frequently, failing to effectively dehumidify the air and costing you cash in the process. Our experts account for details like insulation thickness, windows, attic space, and more to choose a proper unit for your home. With Bauer Mechanical, the installation process is precise, professional, easy, and fast.
Like heating systems, cooling systems and air conditioning may run in zones for larger homes. This means your system doesn’t have to cool your entire home all the time, which saves electricity and improves efficiency. For example, rooms that harbour excess sunlight may require more attention from a cooling system, while unoccupied rooms in cool, Colorado basements will require less.
A new air conditioning unit will also require updating your thermostat. Our HVAC experts lean toward digital models that allow you to easily control and schedule your cooling system’s cycles and temperatures throughout each day and night. A programmable thermostat can save you headaches and cash after replacing your air conditioning unit.
If you’re experiencing discomfort or high humidity this cooling season, don’t hesitate to call one of our HVAC experts today to schedule a consultation about your home cooling system and air conditioning unit.
Bauer Mechanical will help you navigate your home’s replacement needs and restore your system to peak performance at a fair, competitive cost.
