When the days heat up, having a reliable new air conditioning unit makes coming home every day a relief. However, personal comfort isn’t the only reason to call Metro Express Services to install a new air conditioning unit for your home. Here are three additional reasons why upgrading your air conditioner is a smart choice.
Long Term Savings of a New Air Conditioning Unit
As air conditioning units age, they naturally become less efficient. Air conditioners made after the year 2000 are around 25% more efficient than older units, a difference with the potential to shave hundreds of dollars off your annual energy bill. Contact an Arlington HVAC technician to get the most accurate estimate of what your home can save.
Save the Environment
In addition to costing you more, less efficient air conditioning units also use more energy to cool the same amount of space. The more energy your air conditioner uses, the more fossil fuels need to be burned. In addition, older air conditioners may leak Freon or other dangerous fumes. A new unit is much less likely to seep contaminates into the soil or atmosphere.
Get Tax Credit
You may not know it, but purchasing and installing a new energy efficient air conditioner makes you eligible for a federal tax credit. If your new unit falls into both the Energy Efficiency Ratio and the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio as defined by the IRS, you can get a credit of $300.
