We’ll help you find a unit that balances efficiency and output for the size of your home. We can even add AC to a boiler-heated home!
WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER UPGRADING YOUR AIR CONDITIONER
Air conditioning systems have become increasingly more energy efficient in recent years, and newer models of air conditioners are much more reliable and energy efficient than their outdated counterparts. While the initial cost of replacing or upgrading your air conditioner may be off-putting, the choice could end up being more economical in the long run due to the money it will save you on your monthly utility bills. Our Grand Rapids AC installation experts at Lake Michigan Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing can reliably replace your air conditioner and help you determine the best brand and unit type that works for your home’s layout, personal needs, and budget.
Benefits of installing a new air conditioner are:
- Reduced energy consumption
- Lower monthly utility bills
- Improved indoor air quality
If your air conditioner is ten years old or older, it’s time to consider replacing it. Most systems last anywhere from 10-15 years, but the older the unit the lower its energy efficiency will be.
AC REPAIR VS. REPLACEMENT
It can be difficult to tell when it’s the right time to repair your air conditioner, or if it’s better to replace it. At Lake Michigan Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing, our team of Grand Rapids AC replacement technicians adheres to old-school values of honesty and integrity. We will never up-sell you on an air conditioner replacement unless we truly believe it to be the more economical choice.
Signs it’s time to replace your outdated air conditioner are:
- You’ve had to schedule multiple repair services in the past
- Your unit is more than ten years old
- The cost of the repair is 50% of the cost of the replacement
If your air conditioner has been struggling to cool your home adequately, or if you have had to schedule frequent repairs, replacing your system out right might be the more economical choice. As mentioned above, installing a newer model of air conditioner an also reduce your monthly bills!
WE INSTALL ALL TYPES OF COOLING SYSTEMS
There are many different types of air conditioning systems you can choose to install in your Grand Rapids home, each with their own considerations. central air conditioners are among the most common and are designed to cool the entire house. They consist of a condenser that is located outside and a system that circulates air over refrigerant coils before being distributed throughout the house. This is a great system if you already have a standard furnace.
If you don’t require air conditioning for your whole house, there are also a number of different conditioner options that we can work with. For boiler heated homes, we also work with ductless mini-split air conditioners, aspiration systems, and high-velocity air conditioners.
ADDING AIR CONDITIONING TO A BOILER-HEATED HOME
Homes with boiler systems typically do not have the duct work required already in place to install a traditional air conditioning system. This does not mean, however, that you can’t have AC just because you have a boiler heated home. Unico high-velocity air conditioning systems, SpacePak aspiration systems, and Fujitsu Mini-Split systems can all operate without traditional ductwork to cool your home. Contact Lake Michigan Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing today to discuss what options might be best for your situation.
