The time has come when you have to purchase a new air conditioning system. Nobody hopes for this day, and nobody enjoys budgeting for it, but alas, ‘tis part of Canada homeownership. So where on earth should you begin?
First, know that the investment of a new A/C system differs based on many factors. The first is your living situation and the other people residing in your home. Are there health ailments that will call for a specific type of air cleaning equipment? Do the residents in the home have an issue with the heat or cold, or a condition (such as Multiple Sclerosis) that would require the home to stay at a particular temperature or humidity level? What hobbies take place in the residence? The above details will help direct you to which air conditioning system is best for your family.
The next factor to take into consideration is the home itself. How many windows do you have and which direction do they face? How much insulation is installed in the house and what is the efficiency level of the ductwork? Does the house require (or do you want) solar-power, gas, electric, etc? At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we will come out and assess your house to go over the choices available based on your home’s design and unique characteristics.
The third factor to consider is which business to choose. Though one company may have the air conditioner you want at a cost you like, be thorough and find out if they are bonded, licensed, and confirm they are insured in case something should occur at your residence. If a technician were to get hurt and the contractor was not insured, it’s likely you would be held responsible. At Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, not only are we licensed, bonded, and insured, but all of our team go through a complete background check, drug test, and are skilled to work on all major brands of air conditioning systems. We also have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so you can be comfortable in the work we do.
