Air Conditioning Installation and Replacement
Did you know the average life span of a well-maintained home air conditioner is 12 to 15 years? If your system is approaching or has exceeded this time frame, you are likely considering a new heating, ventilation, and air conditioning HVAC system.
When you partner with HL Bowman for a new air conditioner, you can rely on our team to do the job right from the very beginning. We carefully consider such factors as the square footage, age, and layout of your Harrisburg home in determining the size of the air conditioning system you need.
Accuracy matters, as a system that is too small will have to work harder to cool your home. If it’s too big, it will waste energy and increase utility bills.
A central air conditioning system is a practical and popular choice for homes with an existing gas or oil furnace and air ducts. If your home has no ductwork or the air ducts don’t extend to every room, you might consider alternatively installing a ductless cooling system in your Pennsylvania home.
High-efficiency ductless systems, also called mini splits, are mounted on a wall or ceiling in one or more rooms in your home. They are a perfect solution for older houses with limited ductwork.
We can install your new cooling system in no time, and we offer financing options if that is a concern for you.
How Long Does It Take to Install an Air Conditioner?
The length it takes to install a new air conditioning system in your Harrisburg home depends on several factors. Is it a brand new installation because it’s your home’s first air conditioner? Is it a replacement or upgrade for your current system? Will we be installing new air ducts?
All these are factors that play into your installation time frame. But on a typical installation, our HL Bowman installation team can complete the project in a day. That includes hauling away your old system, if applicable, and cleaning up the worksite. Call our team for more specifics about your unique scenario.
Should I Replace My 10-Year-Old Air Conditioner?
Even though an air conditioning system can last 12 to 15 years, the older a system is, the less efficient it is. Despite your system continuing to cool your home on a daily basis, it could be costing you unnecessary money in higher energy bills.
Replacing your older model with a newer energy-efficient system will save you money over the long term. You will also experience more consistent cooling throughout your Central Pennsylvania home and be more comfortable.
When Is the Best Time to Buy a New Air Conditioner?
Any time you need one is the best answer. We can install a new air conditioner throughout the year in your Harrisburg home. There are times we offer specials, so that might be a deciding factor for you.
Also, if you need a new heating system, it’s generally more cost-effective to replace your cooling system at the same time. Choosing highly compatible units makes for a more energy-efficient choice as well.
