AC Installation

At Service Patriots, we are available to help out with all your home’s heating and cooling needs. If your AC unit is not acting as it should, your system may need either repairs or a complete replacement. Our technicians can help you determine if AC installation is the best solution for you.

5 Signs You Need to Replace Your Air Conditioner

Here at Service Patriots, we want to find the most cost-effective and efficient solution for all your heating and air problems, including the installation of AC units and services. Here are a few of the top reasons for new AC installations to help you determine if it’s time to invest in a new system.

Your Home is Not Staying Cool

If your home feels unnaturally hot and humid during the summer, or if you notice dust is gathering inside more frequently, your air conditioner may not be working as well as it should. An evaluation by one of our trained professional technicians will help determine if they could fix the issue quickly and affordably or if it is a sign that they should completely replace your system.

The AC Unit Is Using Outdated Refrigerant

A new requirement in recent years has demanded that all R 22 Freon used in older units be phased out so that all AC units will now use a modern refrigerant known as R410A. As more homeowners have newer AC systems installed, there will be less of a demand for R 22 Freon, and therefore it will cost much more to refill any older models still using this type of refrigerant.

The Unit Is Over 15 Years Old

The average lifespan for any air conditioning unit is between 10 to 15 years. If a unit is ten years old, there is a good possibility that it is no longer energy efficient and that repairs would be too costly to bother with. Older AC units decrease in value after a decade, so the cost to repair them is often much more expensive than the cost to fully replace them with a brand new HVAC system. If your unit is at least 15 years old and you are having issues with it, you should consider replacing the system with a new HVAC installation.

The AC Unit Is No Longer Efficient

To determine how efficient your air conditioner unit is, you will need to look at the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio or SEER. The SEER rating measures the amount of energy required for your unit to cool your home completely, or in other words, how much your electric bill will be when using your AC unit. Depending on what region you are in, federal law requires an AC unit to have a SEER rating of around 13 or 14. Thanks to advancements in technology, today’s AC units now have SEER ratings of 25, saving homeowners at least 50% on energy costs.

The Cost of Repairs Is More Expensive Than a Brand New Unit

No one wants to pay more to repair an old and outdated AC unit when they could pay the same price or even less to have a new unit installed. Even if the repairs seem minimal, choosing to invest in having a new HVAC unit installed will save you money in the long run. Modern air conditioner units use less energy than older models. This makes them more energy-efficient, allowing you to save on your electric bill over time.

5 Signs to Buy a New Air Conditioner

While a repair service might be cheaper today, a new AC unit installation could save you hundreds of dollars down the road.

Purchasing a new air conditioner is no small decision. Knowing the difference between needing a repair and a replacement is of vital importance. Here are five signs to determine if a new air conditioner is required:

The Air Conditioner is Ready for Retirement

The average lifespan of an air conditioner is 10-15 years. Once a unit has hit double-digits, there’s a good chance that it is losing money in repairs and energy efficiency.

Think of an old AC unit like an old car—it takes a lot less damage for it to be considered “totaled.” As the AC unit loses value, the benefit of repairing it gets closer to zero.

The Cost Of Repairs Is More Expensive Than Buying A New Unit

On the surface, this statement sounds like a no brainer. However, we can’t only look at dollar signs. As noted above, the age of the unit matters.

A simple formula for determining the true cost of repairs is to multiply the cost by the age of the unit.

For instance, if repairs cost $1,000 and the unit is nine years old, the true cost is $9,000—well above the average cost of a new unit.

I had a maintenance agreement with another company and felt they were not really checking things thoroughly. They had also told me that my AC was not working properly because the room to the area it was in had been closed, which I thought was super odd. I had Service Patriots come out and they found multiple things on the HVAC unit itself that needed to be remedied, all of which allowed our AC to work better than ever. We changed to them for routine maintenance as well and they always do quality checks and update me on what they did. Thank you Service Patriots for being a stand up company!

Top notch service! My furnace started to short this weekend and I tried to find the issue myself. After a few hours of troubleshooting I called around for a service person. Service Patriots sent Jerry out the day after I called and even managed to get me an earlier time than originally planned. He spotted the issue pretty quickly and had me up and running. He also got my fan setting to work which was a added bonus. I'll be doing business with them again when I plan to install AC!

Mike and Louie did an awesome job installing our new Heating and Cooling System! Thank you for the great work! They arrived in time and got right to work. They had to make some modification but did so very efficiently. They communicated well and respected our property. Could not ask for a more efficient team!

Install day is here, they show up ahead of schedule. Install team Louie & Mike and Steven are here. They start taking everything apart and getting ready to install our new system. Uh oh the 3Ton won't fit in the attic! The one they have won't come apart to fit. Boom some quick thinking and an upgrade to a 3.5Ton system at no additional charge. They work the entire day... to be expected and bust out this system. Great job everyone' and I thought we were done. Systems in and we are Cooking and Cooling our house to what we need..... Couple weeks go by and having some issues with the thermostat connecting to the WiFi. Send Travis a text about it and next day Wayne is at our house swapping us with an upgrade to a better wall unit that's even easier to manage on an app. So if you're looking for quality Equipment, employees and a business. These guys have my recommendations and service. Thank you
