Black-Haak, as well as most air conditioner manufacturers, recommend annual servicing of your air conditioner by a trained AC technician. These routine checkups help ensure the air conditioning system is clean, parts are inspected for excessive wear or corrosion and that the system is functioning at peak efficiency. This type of routine maintenance helps extend the life and efficiency of your air conditioner.

There are several reasons to replace your current air conditioner with a newer model, which range from increased efficiency to improved reliability. The average air conditioner has a lifespan of 10-15 years when properly maintained. If your air conditioner is getting up there in age, or you’ve noticed less cooling effect in the home or higher utility bills, it might be advisable to call in for an air conditioner checkup or start looking for a replacement air conditioner. Even if your system is working fine it may still be worth making the transition to a newer model for increased energy efficiency or home appraisal value. If you are able to upgrade your old air conditioner to a newer model that is more efficient or has less frequent repair requirements you may find yourself saving money in the years to come through smaller recurring expenses.

The best way to determine the appropriate replacement air conditioner for your home is to consult one of the expert AC installation technicians at Black-Haak. While it is possible to perform research yourself, and is recommended in order to be current with the latest industry technologies, it is always beneficial to let the professionals help you sort through and select the air conditioner model appropriate for your home’s size and your family’s budget. When you call Black-Haak we will send someone out to take a look at your home and make recommendations based on the layout of your house and your particular needs.
