Need a New Air Conditioner
Are you thinking you’d like to install an air conditioning unit in your home but wondering if you can afford it and if it would be a good idea, here are some things to consider before you call a Texas AC contractor.
1) Is an air conditioner really necessary? Temperatures in Texas, can be quite warm and humid in the summer months, with an average temperature of 85 degrees in July. So most people probably would say, “Yes, I need an AC.”
It can be difficult to sleep at night when you’re hot and sticky and a Texas AC certainly could help you get a good night’s rest. Those who suffer from asthma also report that having an air conditioner helps them breathe better.
You can install a programmable air conditioner that will go on and off when you tell it to. Out of the house most of the day at work? A programmable thermostat will allow you to turn the AC only when you’re a half hour away from home, thus saving you considerably in electricity costs.
2) What do I do if it breaks? Most of all, Texas AC units come with warranties and guarantees. So long as you fill them out and send them back to the manufacturer, the warranty will help you should your air conditioner break down during the warranty time frame.
If the unit breaks after the warranty has expired (or if you never sent in the paperwork), all you need to is call a Texas AC specialist to come to your home to fix it. In fact, you may be able to fix the AC unit yourself; many repairs are easy to make. Check your unit’s owner’s manual first before calling a technician.
3) Do I need a large home? Mine is very small/I live in an apartment. Just about any building, home or office can handle an AC unit. They come in many sizes. Some can be installed out a window or even hung on a wall. Your Texas AC technician will be able to look at your space and determine what type of unit will best fit your needs.
What if I don’t have any room? Because of the wide range of products available, most HVAC technicians can successfully perform its installation in just about any home or office. There are large units that are kept outdoors, and then there are even small one-room units that can be hung high on walls or installed out of windows. Many of them take up little space. Is an air conditioner necessary for a business office or store? Even more so than a residential home, air conditioning installation in businesses is greatly important in order to maintain a high level of employee and client satisfaction. Even if your office or store is fairly temperate year-round, most locations are susceptible to the occasional hot days and you could end up losing out on good business.
