When to Consider an Air Conditioning Replacement

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

There are a lot of ways in which you’d probably like to spend your hard earned money, and we’re guessing that a new air conditioning system may not be right at the top of that list. There will come a time, though, when your air conditioning system is simply unable to cool your home effectively, efficiently, and reliably any longer. When that time comes, call the Colorado Springs, CO air conditioning replacement experts at Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning. We’ll make sure that you find the right replacement air conditioning system for your needs, and we guarantee that we will install it properly.

It is important that you have the necessary information to determine whether or not the time is right for replacing your air conditioning system. If your system breaks down entirely, of course, the need for a replacement system is pretty clear cut. However, there are many other instances in which an air conditioning replacement may be justified. Here are a few tips to help you decide if now is the time to replace your system.

First of all, how old is your air conditioner? It may be the case, if you have a very old system, that you are paying more than you ought to in order to cool your home. Even if your system is still in great working condition, it has a limited life expectancy. If your system was manufactured at a time when lower efficiency levels than current ones were the norm, it may make sense just to replace now rather than in a few years. The money you save in energy costs can help to offset the initial investment.

Also, keep in mind the fact that repairing your air conditioner may not always be worthwhile. We believe that you should always try to preserve your AC within reason. That being said, if your system consistently encounters problems, despite receiving routine maintenance, it is probably in your best interest to invest in a newer, more reliable system.

What to Consider Prior to Your AC Installation

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Investing in a new air conditioner is a great way to ensure that your comfort is protected during even the hottest days of the summer season. However, as with any important decision, it is necessary that you take the time to do your research and to gather all of the necessary information. You don’t want to wind up with an air conditioner incapable of meeting your high expectations. The air conditioning installation pros at Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning are here to ensure that you are 100% satisfied with your air conditioning installation in Colorado Springs, CO.

First things first, it is necessary that you choose your new air conditioning system wisely. Not only must your air conditioner be of the right size for your home, but it must be of a design which makes sense for your living space and for your cooling preferences. If your air conditioner is too small for your home, after all, there is just no way in which you can expect it to cool your house effectively or efficiently. Bigger is not better in this case, though, as an oversized air conditioning system can present a whole different set of problems. It will cool your home too quickly, failing to remove sufficient humidity from the air: this can drag down the quality of the air throughout your home. Additionally, it will cycle on and off more frequently than it ought to, putting unnecessary strain on the system and decimating its efficiency levels.

Because there are so many different types of air conditioning systems to choose from, you must also consider your cooling goals and the style of your home. Traditional split central air conditioners remain the most popular method of residential cooling. However, many homes cannot accommodate the ductwork that systems require. If your home cannot, then a ductless air conditioning system may be your best bet. You may want to consider a heat pump if energy efficiency and convenience are your priorities, as such systems can also heat your home with minimal energy expenditure throughout the heating season.

We will answer any questions that you may have. Once we do, we’ll complete your AC installation with the greatest of care.
