Milford AC Repair & Replacement

Servicing All Air Conditioning Brands & Models

New Connecticut residents are usually surprised to discover that summers in the Constitution State are often exceedingly hot and humid. However, meteorological explanations as to why, that involve the state’s proximity to the Atlantic ocean’s warm air masses, are generally less important than simply ensuring their personal comfort. When the mercury climbs in the heat of summer, everyone is happy as long as they are cool and comfortable within their own temperature-controlled environment. This is only possible courtesy of a dependable, efficient, and effective air conditioning. Unfortunately, the converse is also true: nobody is happy when their air conditioning fails to come on or fails to adequately cool when the outside temperatures soar.

The good news is, you can count on the cooling experts from Tri-City to provide you with quality AC services. Whether your cooling system is cycling frequently, leaking, or not turning on at all, our team can help.

Should You Opt for Air Conditioning Repair or Is It Time for a Replacement?

Eventually, there comes a time when every Connecticut homeowner must make the decision whether to repair an existing unit or to get an AC replacement. It is usually a good idea to make this decision in conjunction with reliable information obtained from a trusted air conditioning expert in Milford, such as Tri-City.

The primary factors involved in making this decision are the estimated cost of the repair and the age and condition of the AC system in question. Depending on the individual circumstance, the correct decision is all but guaranteed to ultimately save the homeowner money, either presently or in the future.

When facing such a decision, be sure to take into account these important considerations:

  • Energy-efficiency- Saving energy without sacrificing results is a big deal today, and desirable whenever possible. Today, many appliances, including air conditioning systems, are independently certified to either meet or exceed the minimum efficiency ratings set by the EPA’s voluntary Energy Star program. Any product that receives the Energy Star seal is guaranteed to save energy without sacrificing either functionality or features. Not only does this save the homeowner money but it promotes responsible stewardship of natural resources as well.
  • Advances in technology- Most ACs have a life expectancy of 10-20 years depending upon the type of unit, use, and quality of installation. AC technology has undergone a number of changes in the past decade. Newer units typically cost significantly less to operate. They do a better job keeping interior spaces comfortable and cool. They use a different refrigerant that does not deplete the ozone layer as did the chlorofluorocarbons used in older units. Additionally, computer software has made it easier for contractors to calculate the correct size of AC unit better for a particular home. These calculations were previously based on square footage, which often results in a too-large and inefficient unit. Today, the dedicated software considers information such as insulation, the number of windows, and sun orientation, as well as the cooling needs of each room in the home.
  • Cost considerations- If the current AC unit cools effectively and affordably , the current air conditioning repair estimate is moderate, and the unit is less than 10 years old, it is probably smart to have it repaired. However, if the unit is old or ineffective, and our cooling tech sees other “weak links” that will doubtless soon lead to additional repairs, it may be wise to go ahead and replace the unit now. Although doing so may cost more at present, the savings that will accrue with the installation of a new, energy-efficient system (not to mention the increased comfort) will more than make this initial cost worthwhile.
