Act Now for Better A/C Next Year!

Poore’s team sells and installs efficient central air conditioning and ductless mini-splits.

ac service Queen Anne’s county, md With temperatures dropping in our part of the country, most folks have turned off their home air conditioning for the year. If your cooling equipment struggled this summer, you might be breathing a sigh of relief that you made it through the sweltering months without a breakdown. Rather than forget about your A/C, take a little time this fall to look at your replacement options.

Here are some circumstances where it makes more sense to arrange an A/C replacement instead of paying for another repair.

  1. Your current system has an efficiency rating below 14-SEER (the new federal minimum).
  2. Your system uses outdated R-22 refrigerant. Replacement parts and refrigerant for these systems are prohibitively expensive.
  3. The cost of repairing your system is more than 50 percent of the cost of new equipment.

Upgrade to high-efficiency central A/C.

If your current central air conditioning system is over 10 years old, its energy efficiency is likely well below the federally mandated minimum. Today, all new A/C products in our region must have a SEER rating of 14 or higher. Many have ratings well above 20-SEER.

The U.S. Department of Energy calculated that upgrading from lower-efficiency cooling equipment to ENERGY STAR-certified A/C products can save you anywhere from $394 to $1,925 in electricity costs over its service life.

Ditch window units and install a ductless A/C system.

Quite a few of the Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania households we serve have no ductwork. They heat with boilers and radiators in the winter, but what do they do for A/C in the summer?

Many people mistakenly think their only cooling option is a bulky, loud, inefficient window A/C unit. There is a much more dependable, cost-effective, long-term cooling option. Ductless mini-splits take very little time to install, with only basic drilling for mounting equipment and running connections through your walls. These systems provide zoned cooling, so you can reduce your energy use in rooms you aren’t occupying. And they have a longer service life than central air systems — often over 20 years!

As a bonus, these products also provide supplemental heating for the fall and early winter.
