When is it Time to Replace Your A/C System?
A traditional air conditioning system, like central a/c or an air-source heat pump, is likely to last around 10 years with proper maintenance and inspections. During this time, you can expect to invest in small repairs and regularly scheduled maintenance to ensure your system runs to full efficiency. There are some common signs, however, of when an air conditioning system is nearing its life expectancy and it’s time to consider a replacement:
- Your air conditioning system is constantly needing repairs
- Your cooling bill has increased due to your unit’s inefficiency
- Parts are no longer available for your unit due to its age
Should you experience any of these signs, it’s best to call the professionals at Pat Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning. Our expert air conditioning technicians will assess your situation and advise you on whether or not your a/c system is in need of a simple repair or if an air conditioning installation or replacement would be more beneficial.
Types of A/C Systems We Install
Central Air Conditioner Installation
Central air conditioners are designed to cool an entire house or business. Outside, a large unit, called a compressor operates the entire process. Indoors, a coil filled with refrigerant cools the air that then gets distributed through the house through ducts. With a central air conditioner, the same ducts are used with a furnace for forced warm-air heating. In many cases, the furnace fan is used to distribute cool air from the central air conditioner to the ducts.
Central air is one of the most effective and energy efficient ways to cool air when compared to window air conditioning systems. They are also superior to conventional air conditioners because they can help to improve your indoor air quality. Other important benefits that you can expect when having the experts at Pat Plumbing Heating Air install or replace your central air conditioning system include:
- Information on the right type and size of air conditioning for your home or business
- Assistance in choosing the right energy-efficient a/c system to reduce your energy bills
- Removal of your old a/c unit and professional installation of your replacement unit
- Continued regular maintenance on your replacement air conditioning system
Ductless Mini Split Air Conditioners
Like traditional central air conditioners, mini-splits use an outside compressor and indoor handing units. However, the main difference between the two is that each room or zone can have its own air handler. Each of the indoor units is connected to the outside unit through a conduit that carries the power and refrigerant lines. The indoor units are usually mounted on the wall.
Ductless mini-split systems are an innovative alternative to traditional central a/c systems and can be a very attractive option for houses without ductwork and room additions. These systems are also great for people with allergies or who want to split the cooling into different zones in their home or business. Moreover, they’re inexpensive and easy to install. Our professional staff will educate you on the many benefits of going ductless, including:
- Flexibility in cooling individual rooms or zones and meeting varying comfort levels
- Avoid energy losses that are associated with ductwork of central air conditioning
- Multi-stage filtration that can drastically reduce dust, bacteria, pollen and allergens
- Quick and easy installation because there is no need for disruptive ducts
Heat Pump Installation
Heat pumps can be best described as a two-way air conditioner. In the warm months, an air conditioner moves heat from inside a home or structure to the outdoors. Alternatively, in the cold months, the heat pump reverses this flow and, with the assistance of an electrical system, takes any available heat from the outdoors and releases it indoors. Cool air is then distributed through a forced-air system.
Air-source heat pumps are a common type of heat pump used in many homes and businesses in Topeka and the surrounding area. Heat pumps are inexpensive and easy to use, making them a great option for homeowners and businesses that are looking to increase energy efficiency while saving money at the same time. Here are some of the main benefits you can expect when replacing your heat pump:
- Reduced energy bills because you will be using less energy to cool and heat the air
- Excellent energy efficiency for those who value the environment and their wallets
- Fewer repairs than traditional a/c systems because heat pumps have fewer components
