Would a New Air Conditioning Unit Help Keep My Cooling Costs Lower in the Summer?
Wednesday, August 03, 2016 | Smoak's Comfort Control
You love your old faithful air conditioner. Sure, it rattles, and sometimes it smells funny and maybe it needs to be defrosted more often than you'd like. But it keeps you cool in the summer... kind of. Purchasing a new air conditioner can be a big investment. That's why it's important to learn whether a new unit will provide better air conditioning than its older counterpart.
You want the short answer? Yes, a newer unit will be superior to an older model – in almost every way. Here are three reasons you should consider purchasing a new air conditioner.
1. Your Cooling Bill Will Plummet
Thanks to constantly advancing technology, newer units require less energy to cool a house. Need some stats? A brand new unit can heat an average sized house at 1700 watts an hour. An older unit would take around 6000 watts per hour to heat the same house.
2. Quiet Enough to Sleep Through
With an older unit, big time cooling can mean big time noise. A newer unit? The quietest units on the market may have a decibel rating of 60 or lower – and that's constantly improving.
3. Make Friends With the Environment
A brand new air conditioning system will likely use a more environmentally friendly coolant, such as R410A, which is safe for the ozone layer. You get to stay cool and preserve the environment – talk about a win-win.
While a new air conditioning unit can be a big investment, it's easy to see that they're superior to their older cooling counterparts. Contact Smoak’s Comfort today and discover just how great a new unit could be!
