Air Conditioning Installation
Replacing An Existing UnitThere are many factors that could warrant a replacement of your current air conditioning unit. Though these signs alone might not mean your air conditioner needs a full replacement, as these factors add up, they might affect your decision. Here are some common signs that it might be time for a replacement.
- The age of the unit is 10-15 years or older
- An increase in energy bills
- Frequently needed repairs
- Unusual noises or smells coming from the unit
- A noticeable difference in airflow
The Installation ProcessMost modern-day air conditioning units are integrated into your property’s heating system, sharing the same ductwork, blowers, temperature controls and more. Our technicians will inspect your current HVAC system to give you the best options on a new air conditioning unit so that it can be properly combined with your current heating system. In some cases, it might make the most sense, both operationally and financially to replace the entire HVAC system. Our team will be there to walk you through every step in the process, providing you with the highest level of quality service on the Virginia Peninsula.
