Things to Consider When Choosing Between Air Conditioners

When the air conditioning begins to fail in your home, you will have some important decisions to make. For starters, you will have to choose between having the unit repaired and purchasing an entirely new one. This choice will normally come down to cost, as it does not make much sense to repair any cooling unit when it is less expensive to simply buy a new one. If you do decide to purchase something new, consider the following things before making a selection.

Reliable Company
Not all air conditioners are created equally, so make sure that you purchase one that has a good reputation. Your contractor will probably give you a few different air conditioning options when he or she visits your house. Take the time to research each unit and make your decision based on the experiences of others. Remember that simply picking the least expensive unit is never advisable unless, of course, it is made by a reliable company that will stand behind its work.

Services Received
If you have contacted a few different contractors, you will have another important decision to make. Once again, it is not a good always a good idea to go with the cheapest contractor because there is a chance that the job will not be done right. Ask about what is included in this price, as some contractors might not include installation in your initial quote. This is a sneaky way of doing business, especially if they do not tell you upfront, so be aware of this practice.

Insurance and Warranty
Finally, you should make sure that your contractor is fully insured and that any air conditioners that you purchase are covered by a parts and labor warranty. Insurance is important because it covers your home in case of damage to your property or an injury by one of your contractors. It should also cover you if the air conditioning unit is damaged while it is being installed. The warranty is equally important because it allows for your unit to be replaced at no cost to you should it break down soon after you make the purchase.
