Keep Your Home Cool and Comfortable through Air Conditioner Replacement

An old, malfunctioning air conditioner will not only make your home uncomfortable, but it can also lead to more expensive energy bills. Securing professional air conditioner replacement services can make sure that you have a top-performing system that keeps your home cool and comfortable all year. The experienced, local technicians at Mark Allen can help you select the most appropriate make and model for your unique cooling needs before completing the installation process with care and precision.

How Does Air Conditioner Replacement Differ from Installation?

Air conditioner installation consists of setting up a new air conditioner unit and connecting it to your house’s electrical and ductwork systems. The process begins with picking out the right size and type of unit for your home, based on factors including the square footage of your home, the number of rooms and your overall cooling needs. Professional technicians will then proceed to install the unit by connecting it to everything and verifying all the necessary safety precautions are working.

Air conditioner replacement, in the meantime, consists of pulling out the old, outdated unit and replacing it with a newer, more effective model. This service is usually required when the existing unit is no longer running properly, or is outdated and inefficient. The installer should first disconnect it from the electrical and ductwork systems before disposing of it in an environmentally safe manner. The new unit is then installed in its place, and hooked up to the existing electrical and ductwork systems.

It’s important to understand the differences between the two services, as they depend on different skill sets and techniques. Air conditioner replacement is relatively unique because it demands the ability to correctly remove the old unit before the new one can be put in.

Factors to Consider When Replacing Your Air Conditioner



The size of your air conditioner fulfills a central role in its energy efficiency and performance. An air conditioner that is too small may struggle to cool your home, while a unit that is too big will waste energy and can even experience issues such as short cycling.


Energy Efficiency

Try to find air conditioners with strong SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings. This will ensure that your unit is performing at peak efficiency and can produce significant savings on your energy bills.



Today’s air conditioners include different features such as compatibility with smart accessories like programmable thermostats. Consider which features are most important to you and your family when deciding on a new unit.


Maintenance Needs

Consider just how easy the unit is to maintain. Some models can benefit from more frequent or complex air conditioning maintenance, which should be factored into your budget.



Research different options to find one that fits within your budget. Don’t forget that investing in a higher-quality unit could save you money in the long run thanks to lower energy bills and fewer air conditioning repair costs.
