AC Replacement In Greeneville, Chuckey, Mosheim, TN And Surrounding Areas
With the summer upon us here in Tennessee, homeowners, business managers, and landlords everywhere are being swiftly reminded that having a well-functioning air conditioning unit isn’t just a nice convenience—it’s practically a necessity! Here at Bailey Heating & Air, we understand the importance of AC replacement in Greeneville, Chuckey, Mosheim, TN and surrounding areas.
In today’s post, we’ll be taking a look at whether you should repair or replace your air conditioner, what to expect during an installation, and how you can save money and prevent future repairs.
Let’s dive in:
Should You Repair or Replace Your Air Conditioner?
Most mechanical things can be repaired with enough effort—so it’s really more of a question whether that repair is worth it. If the cost of a replacement is less than a repair, you’re almost certainly better off going with the replacement. It’s all a matter of finding that threshold.
Having said that, we’ve been surprised on more than one occasion when a new customer has come to us for a second opinion about whether a replacement is actually necessary. After visiting a competitor, they were convinced that their current unit was a lost cause, but we found that in fact it was much more economical to have a repair.
That’s why it’s so important for home and business owners to consult with a reputable HVAC company like Bailey Heating & Air. Our team of experts takes great pride in extending our honesty and integrity to the local community in Greeneville and the surrounding area.
If it does turn out that you need a replacement for your air conditioner, here’s what to expect:
What to Expect During an Air Conditioner Installation
The first step to installing a new air conditioner will likely be to inspect the site where it will be placed. Then, depending on your specific needs, it may be first necessary for the HVAC technicians to repair, replace, or otherwise modify your existing ductwork. This is usually done before the installation of the actual unit itself, and may involve allowing our trained team into your attic or crawl spaces.
Once the ductwork has been appropriately updated, our crew will begin installing the air conditioning unit. Some air conditioners are external to the residence or business, and some have both outdoor and indoor components. In the case of the latter, our team may need access to the inside of the building. If necessary, we may also need access to your wiring and circuit breakers to complete the installation.
That might sound like a lot, but in practice we make sure that the process of selecting and installing a new system is as quick and easy as possible.
Remember, Regular Maintenance Can Prevent Costly Repairs
Scheduling an annual maintenance appointment with Bailey Heating & Air can often be the difference between resolving issues before they become a problem and spending far more than would have been necessary on repairs.
Regular maintenance of your HVAC system can also help you save on energy costs, since our trained technicians will do things like calibrating your thermostat, checking for leaks in both refrigerant systems and ducts, and cleaning the outdoor coils—all of which means that your system doesn’t have to work any harder than necessary. We’ll also make helpful energy-saving suggestions to improve the efficiency of your unit, ensure that the air in your home or business is properly balanced, and more. We look forward to serving you!
