If you’ve been spending $150 here and $300 there to keep your old cooling system running, consider replacing it soon. The performance and reliability of central air equipment typically deteriorates after 15 years (sooner if maintenance has been neglected).

In just the last decade, federal energy requirements have led to major improvements in home comfort equipment. The result: dramatically higher efficiency ratings, much lower energy costs and minimal need for repairs. New cooling equipment also uses environmentally friendly refrigerant instead of the harmful and expensive R-22, which will be phased out in another three years.

We can perform a complete comfort analysis of your home, talk with you about your needs—and your budget—and help you choose the right size and type of system. We’ll then install it properly to ensure that your new system keeps your home more comfortable and costs less to operate than your old one.

We’ll help you save even more by showing you how you qualify for up to $1,650 in Carrier Cool Cash rebates on new cooling systems. You could even qualify for financing options. Read more here and then contact us to request a free estimate.
