Trend #1: AC Maintenance Is Increasing in Value
It’s probably no mystery to you that HVAC components and replacements are rising in cost. With many other building materials, the demand for these kinds of products has skyrocketed which has left some homeowners upset and frustrated. While prices will soon drop back again, air conditioners and heaters will only get more expensive the more complex they become. As manufacturers build more high-tech systems that last longer, they’ll be worth more money.
This is where maintenance really shines! In a world of rising prices and systems that are becoming more efficient and high-tech, having your system maintained is more valuable than it used to be. When air conditioners were cheaper and less efficient, it was an easier idea to replace yours after a little while. However, AC systems have only gotten more efficient and expensive, which means services like maintenance are going to be your best chance for savings in the future.
Trend #2: Efficiency Is the Most Important Concern
While AC longevity, comfort, and peace of mind are incredibly important aspects of cooling, efficiency is quickly becoming the biggest concern for homeowners.
The IPCC just released its new climate change report which has had a pretty big impact on the world. Energy prices are rising, climate legislation is being passed, and anyone who is willing to run inefficient systems will soon be paying a lot more.
It’s becoming clear that efficiency (i.e. the ability to use less energy when keeping you comfortable) is going to be the most valuable aspect of air conditioning going forward. If your air conditioner struggles to cool your home at an affordable price, then it might be time to call for professional support.
Trend #3: Refrigerant Materials Will Change in the Future
Since January 2020, R-22 refrigerant has been phased out by R-410A which is a more environmentally-friendly substance. This was coming for a while and we’ve been urging homeowners to replace their old systems with new ones that run on the better, more affordable refrigerant. However, the trend is looking likely that this won’t be the only refrigerant phase-out going forward.
Be conscious of the type of refrigerant your system uses, and stay in touch with us to know about the newest legislation on refrigerant phase-outs. We’ll be sure to tell you if your system should be upgraded to one with a refrigerant material that’s better for the environment, or cheaper to work with.
