Are you considering scheduling air conditioner replacement in Maryland this year but unsure whether it would be truly beneficial to you? Many homeowners in Gaithersburg, Germantown, Potomac, Clarksburg, and surrounding areas are turned off by the thought of the initial investment of a replacement AC unit without considering the many benefits they could start taking advantage of right now.
At Michael Bonsby Heating & Air Conditioning, we’ve identified the most significant advantages to upgrading to an air conditioner replacement before the scorching summer days arrive—think July and August!
New air conditioner models are far more efficient than models that are only a few years old. How old is your current AC unit? With an AC replacement, you can expect your monthly cooling costs to go down.
The latest technology enables new AC units to deliver greater comfort by providing a constant stream of conditioned air, better moisture control, and more even temperatures.
Improved Air Quality
Better moisture control means that you and other home occupants will be able to breathe easier because your home will be at a lowered risk for the growth of mold and mildew.
Availability of Tax Credits
Right now is the perfect time to schedule AC replacement with Michael Bonsby because of the availability of an excellent air conditioner tax credit. Through the end of 2013, homeowners in MD and throughout the U.S. can receive a tax credit of up to $500 when they purchase eligible, energy-efficient HVAC equipment. Call us to learn more about this great tax credit.
Dependability & Reliability
Investing in a complete AC replacement can provide you peace of mind that your equipment will run reliably and safely for several years to come.
Use of a Friendlier, More Cost-Effective Refrigerant
It’s a pretty safe bet that your current AC unit—if it’s at least a couple years old—uses the R-22 refrigerant (Freon), which is being phased out by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in response to its environmental hazards. Today’s new AC units make use of a more eco-friendly, EPA-refrigerant known as Puron, or R-410.
Equipment with R-410A is at least five percent more efficient than equipment that uses R-22 refrigerant. R-410A-based compressors also run cooler than R-22 compressors, making R-410A units less likely to overheat and burn out. Most importantly—the cost of refilling R-22 units with refrigerant has risen exponentially. This really is an excellent time to go ahead and make the switch from an R-22 AC unit to an R-410 unit.
