If you think that your old air conditioner is already way past salvage with a few repairs, it might be time to buy a new one. With spring well on its way, the urgency to have a dependable cooling system is only all the more heightened. However, there are a few things you should take into consideration before buying a unit?
Manufacturers like Trane have multiple types of ACs available for your purchase, and each one could be a boon or bane for your home, depending on how well you choose based on your needs, that is. For instance, if you want to cool your entire house without expending too much in energy cost, you might want to opt for a central unit, but if you only plan on cooling certain rooms at a time, get a window unit.
Does it have warranty?
Never forget the warranty. Always check its duration, and the terms of the contract, as it varies between units. Understand the scope and limitation of your warranty coverage in case something does happen and you’ll have to bank on it.
Is it costly?
Check the price of your unit, but don’t use it as the only measurement of cost. You should also take into consideration the installation and maintenance cost of your AC; some units need fewer repairs, others break down all too often.
