It can be the worst feeling in the world when you turn on your AC unit and it doesn’t work. You can try to fix it, but if that doesn’t work, you may need to purchase a new one.  This blog post will go into detail about what homeowners need to know before buying a new air conditioner for your home.


What air conditioning unit will best serve your home?  There will be many considerations when determining the best one to purchase, including the size of your home, where you will be placing the unit, and how the climate in your location.  While there are many factors to consider, a qualified HVAC contractor will be able to help you with this decision. You will want to compare different types and brands, so speaking with a professional is going to be your best first step.


What are the costs associated with this purchase?  This may be the first question on your mind when realizing you will need to buy a new HVAC unit.  Costs vary depending on the type of unit you choose, the brand of the unit, how large of a home you have, what type of system you desire, and more.


While you may initially think of the purchase price of the AC unit, that is only part of the cost equation.  Maintenance cost, as well as energy costs and savings of different options should also be considered and weighed into your decision.  In many cases, the initial higher cost of energy efficient units, such as geothermal units, will be offset by the substantial energy cost savings they will afford your family.  In the long run, you could actually save quite a bit of money.  An expert can go over a cost comparison with you to ensure you are educated on possible options and the costs associated with each.


You will also want to discuss payment options available.  Woodall’s Total Comfort Systems offers a few different options for your financing needs.

Financing is a great solution to get you a better system.
