The Benefits of Upgrading Your Air Conditioning System

Your home and its air conditioning system were probably built and installed together. For some homes, that’s a pretty old system. AC systems usually last 15 to 20 years but become less efficient as they approach that final age. An AC system determines your comfort and how high your summer power bill can go. 

If you want an energy-efficient and comfortably cool Saskatoon home this summer, one of the best things you can do is upgrade your AC system for the new millennium. Pro Service Mechanical would be proud to be your AC service of choice in bringing your home up to new and enjoyable cooling standards. But first, let’s explore the benefits of upgrading your air conditioning system.

Improved Comfort

Upgrading to a newer AC system can improve your total indoor comfort. Older units often make your home humid and warm, and leave uneven hot/cold spots throughout the house. They are also more prone to dust buildup and poor air quality when you need clear and cool air.  A more efficient AC system can maintain consistent temperature based on your thermostat settings, reduce summertime humidity, and provide better air filtration.

Lower Energy Costs

The older an AC system, the less efficiently it will use electricity. In contrast,  newer models are designed to be more energy efficient than your current system, even when it was first installed. You can significantly lower your summertime energy bills by replacing an old rattling air conditioner with a newer and more efficient model.

A new AC unit can reduce your summer power bills by 20%-40%. Take last summer’s bills and calculate to get a rough estimate of how quickly your AC could pay itself back and then start saving you money each year.

Better Indoor Air Quality

The latest AC systems also emphasize air filtration with advanced filtering technology built into each unit. A newer AC can help reduce not just the dust in your home but also remove allergens, bacteria, and other pollutants. After installation, you may notice having clearer sinuses, fewer respiratory issues, and no off-season allergy symptoms. Your family also experiences far fewer illnesses from cleaner air circulating in the home.

Quieter Operation

Each year when you switch on the AC, you may notice that soft white-noise roar that fills the house. There may even be a familiar rattle or scrape as the old unit pulls itself into gear.  Newer AC units can be whisper-quiet. They reduce the overall noise level and house-wide vibrations that come with turning on the AC. With a new AC unit, you sleep more soundly and can even hear each other more clearly through the house while still enjoying constant cool airflow.

Environmentally Friendly

Finally, newer units are far more eco-friendly. For example, older refrigerant types that caused ozone damage and greenhouse gas emissions have been replaced with newer, more ecological formulas. By upgrading from your old, legacy AC system, the coolant fluid used by your home will line up with new ecological standards. Upgrading allows you to lower your home’s overall carbon footprint and benefit the environment for future generations.
