Air Conditioning Replacement
Before embarking on the search for a new air conditioner, you need to consider the type of system that would be best for your home. When making this crucial decision, a few things should be taken into account. These include:
- The size of your home
- Installing an air conditioner that is too small or too big can affect the unit’s efficiency and your energy costs.
- Energy efficiency
- Air conditioners have efficiency ratings known as SEER. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient (and often expensive) the unit
- Consider a ductless heating and cooling system
- Some homes may not have room for traditional ductwork, requiring ductless air conditioning replacement.
How We Replace/Install AC Systems
The thought of replacing an air conditioning system may seem overwhelming, but it is a rather straightforward and easy job, particularly for professional HVAC contractors like us. If your home already has a ductwork system in place, and there is an existing air handler, it takes a day to install the coils inside the home and the condenser unit outside.
When replacing an air conditioner in the Des Moines area, removing and disposing of the existing air conditioner is part of the process. Fortunately, homeowners who work with Schaal need not worry about this because it is included in the air conditioner replacement cost.
Before selecting a new air conditioner, discuss any changes with your AC contractor. If you switch models, you may need upgrades, duct repairs, or other changes to support the new system.
