For many homeowners outside the Sacramento area, the quest to stay cool and comfortable this summer has already begun. While everyone wants to get the most out of their AC’s lifespan, it’s important to realize that even the best air conditioners need maintenance regularly and eventual replacement in order to be effective. If your AC isn’t operating up to par any longer, now may be the perfect time to consider a new, high-efficiency AC unit.
Need a few reasons to move forward? Here are five from the team at Greiner to get you started.
1. Reduce Your Monthly Energy Bills
At the end of the day, it’s nearly impossible to find a homeowner who doesn’t want to save money on their monthly energy bills. We all know that costs go up once the AC turns on, but this is typically associated with older units that are unable to properly keep the home cool without overworking themselves. Since many of today’s high-efficiency ACs are far more effective at utilizing less energy to keep spaces cool, making the upgrade can help to immediately reduce your monthly energy bill.
2. Tax Credits and Rebates
Many people don’t believe that they can afford to purchase a new AC, but they also don’t realize that there are a number of tax credits and rebates available to eligible homeowners. We know that upfront costs can be difficult, which is why we’ll work with you to develop a plan that gets you the most savings possible. For more information, visit our financing page.
3. Better Efficiency = Lower Carbon Footprint
Now more than ever in the past, we have the power to lower our carbon footprint. It all comes down to the types of home upgrades and equipment we choose, however, as carbon footprint is impossible to reduce if you don’t switch to energy-efficient appliances and systems. The higher an AC’s SEER rating, the more efficient and thus better for the environment it will be.
4. Longer Systems Life with Less Breakdown
Have you ever experienced an AC breakdown on one of the hottest days of the summer? If so, you’re not alone, and it can be more than just a mere annoyance. By choosing a cooling system that is efficient and designed specifically to operate without overworking itself, the chances that breakdown will occur will be slim to none. Plus, you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of your high-efficiency cooling system for many years to come.
5. Increase Home Resale Value
Looking to boost the value of your home? Look no further than installing a new, high-efficiency cooling system. Prospective buyers looking to purchase homes in California want the latest in HVAC technology, and they’ll pay extra for it if it's available in a used home. For this and many other reasons, the upgrade practically pays for itself.
