AC Replacement & Installation
Someday your AC system will need to be replaced or you may have decided it’s time for an upgrade. Our technicians are skilled in AC installations and replacements and understand the importance of installing your new AC unit properly.
When to Replace Your AC Unit
The average lifespan of an AC unit is 10-12 years for an older AC system and 15-20 years for a modern AC system with proper maintenance and care. Every homeowner’s perspective on when their AC unit is beyond repair is different but, repairing an old system could cost more money than it’s worth. A few signs your AC unit may need to be replaced include:
- Your air conditioner is over 10 years old
- Frequent break downs
- Skyrocketing energy bills
- Your AC unit uses R-22 Freon
- Repairs cost 50% of the price of a new unit
Getting a brand new unit is a major decision for homeowners. We can help you determine if it’s time for a new system. We are certified AC system suppliers and will help you choose the best unit for your budget and AC needs.

The Importance of Regular AC Maintenance
Over time your AC system parts will age, collect dust and dirt, and run less efficiently as it works hard to keep your home cool. If your AC unit isn’t regularly maintained and issues aren’t dealt with, it could lead to having to replace your unit sooner than you’d like.
Benefits of routine AC maintenance include:
- Savings on your energy bills
- Avoiding more service calls and costly repairs
- Extending the life of your AC system

Your air conditioner should be serviced in the Spring and Fall to ensure it’s at peak performance when you need it.
