Know When to Replace Your Air Conditioner in Houston

April 30, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
HOUSTON, TX As the days heat up in Houston, a homeowner should pay attention if the air conditioner slows down. According to Murray Kaiman, president of HousePro, signs that it is time for AC repair or replacement can include:

  • Rooms are too hot or too cold
  • Humidity in the home is too high
  • Energy bills are rising
  • System is more than 10 years old

  • Many air conditioner service firms suggest replacing the system when it starts experiencing problems. Sometimes that can be avoided with a thorough cleaning and tune up, because leaks in the ducts and insufficient insulation can cause inefficient cooling. Consumers can also benefit by using programmable thermostats for improved energy management.

    HousePro technicians receive special training and certification to investigate and diagnose these issues, then recommend solutions such as AC service or HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) replacement. When an HVAC unit is older than 10 years, it may warrant replacement, particularly with one that has earned the Energy Star label. The US Environmental Protection Agency designates products meeting their strict energy guidelines as Energy Star certified. These systems can save as much as 20 percent on cooling costs. HousePro cooling service provider is proud to affiliate with Energy Star.

    It is also important to consider recent changes in refrigerants for use in air conditioning systems. While the new non-harmful refrigerants are suitable for some older systems, the units may require modifications to adapt. According to Houston air conditioner expert, consumers planning to use older models requiring the R-22 Freon that is being eliminated should expect their AC service costs to rise. When replacing the system, consumers should ensure that the new model uses an EPA approved refrigerant for less costly AC maintenance in the future.
