Is Your AC Ready for Replacement?

Monday, August 26th, 2019

ac-technicianGeez, summer isn’t even over yet then we’ve got all winter to get through. Why are we talking about replacing ACs already?

Well, because it pays to be prepared. If your air conditioner is struggling to get through the end of the summer, and repairs are no longer justified due to age or overall dissatisfaction with the system, why wait until next summer? Doesn’t it make more sense to get out ahead of the problem, rather than to wait for summer to be on the horizon once more?

Even if you’re not necessarily thinking about replacing your system immediately, it is always a good idea to keep some reasons for replacement in mind. When you get used to a “pretty decent” performance from your air conditioner, it can be easy to forget that you deserve so much more! In today’s post, we’ll cover some reasons why homeowners might want to seriously consider an AC replacement. We’re here for your air conditioning services in New Hampshire. (more…)

It’s no wonder homeowners are often confused as to why the initial cost of them can be hefty compared to other, more conventional air conditioning systems. However, contrary to this belief, the ductless mini-split system can save you a lot of money in the long run.

New Hampshire summers are hot, and the winters can be brutally cold. Wouldn’t it be convenient to have a single heat pump system to both cool and heat your home when you need it? Why purchase an air conditioner and a heating system when you could kill two birds with one stone and potentially save yourself a nice sum of money?

It’s definitely possible when installing ductless air conditioning in New Hampshire. (more…)
