The Benefits of Upgrading to a New Air Conditioning System

May 8, 2023

If you haven’t considered replacing your air conditioning system, an upgrade can be highly beneficial. Your old AC may be working fine. But it may be time to start planning for HVAC improvements. You can get more for your money and avoid rushing to pick a new AC when your old one breaks down. Here are a few benefits of upgrading to a new air conditioning system. 

Improved Control Over Comfort

Modern ACs often have variable-speed fans that allow for more precise temperature control. They respond to demand and maintain a constant temperature. The system can adjust automatically, or you can have complete control over the thermostat.

Programmable and smart thermostats can be used to maintain a steady temperature. You can also make adjustments based on your schedule. For example, the thermostat can lower the temperature before you return home. A Wi-Fi-controlled thermostat can be managed with your smartphone from the couch or before you arrive home from work. These small adjustments can save a lot of energy over time.

You’ll Spend Less on Energy

Energy efficiency and cost savings are other benefits of upgrading to a new air conditioning system. Home cooling can account for a large portion of energy consumption in the summer. 

But modern ACs use half the energy to deliver the same amount of cool air. 

Air conditioners can now idle when a room is at the desired temperature. They use less energy when not always on and not being constantly adjusted to achieve comfort. Therefore, an upgrade can cut your annual electricity costs by hundreds of dollars.

Improved Performance and Climate Control

During AC installation, a technician can replace ductwork or seal leaks in existing ducts. This improves airflow and indoor air quality. The temperature in your home will also be more uniform and consistent. 

An AC update can improve humidity control as well. High humidity can cause condensation, mold, and odors, but a new air conditioner can avoid these issues by keeping humidity levels down. Plus, newer models are quieter and contain sound-absorbing materials, so you’re not distracted by the noise.

Protect Your Health

Updating your HVAC system helps address contamination from sources such as dust, mold, bacteria, and fungi. Older air conditioning systems can be a trigger for allergy and asthma symptoms, and mold is also associated with various symptoms and illnesses. Improved and consistent comfort reduces stress, which can help boost your overall health as well.

Extended Warranty

A disadvantage of holding on to your old AC is paying for repairs after the warranty expires. Your new air conditioner may include an extended warranty. It can cover routine service and repairs for several years. Unexpected costs won’t strain your budget, ensuring your investment is worth it.

A Boost in Home Value

A new AC can make your home a more comfortable and healthier place. This increases its value to you and your family. It can also contribute to a higher selling price when you plan to sell your home. The new owners are guaranteed comfort and good indoor air quality and need not worry about investing in a new HVAC system.

Environmental Conservation

Newer air conditioning systems use a different refrigerant for cooling the air. That means they won’t contribute to harming the ozone layer. They also use less fuel compared to older models and reduce your carbon footprint. Modern AC equipment produces less waste as well, so it helps conserve natural resources.
