Expert Air Conditioner Replacement
Every heating and air system has a finite lifetime. Even with diligent maintenance, after 10-12 years your system just won’t perform like it used to. If your current system is more than ten years and, has had multiple parts replaced over its life, and has just broken down, it might be time to consider an AC replacement.
A Brand-New HVAC System Could Save you Money
One of the most significant reasons new air conditioners help save money is through increased energy efficiency.
If your system has reached an advanced age, it’s possible that it has a SEER as low as 9. SEER measures the energy efficiency of a heating and air unit. Today, the lowest SEER systems sold in Georgia are SEER 14. This means that even with the most affordable system on the market, you’ll save significant amounts of money on your energy bill every month.
The other reason a complete replacement might be the right choice is when the cost of repairs has become too high. Just like an old car, at a certain point, the cost of replacement parts is higher than the value of the whole system. As a general rule of thumb, if a replacement costs 50% or more of the value of the entire unit, you should consider replacing it instead.

Here are our some of our most frequently asked ac installation questions:
Q: How Much Does Air Conditioning Installation Cost?
A: Installation of a central air conditioning unit varies with the brand and fluctuates some with the market, though generally it may cost between $3,000 to $7,000. A window air conditioner, on the other hand, cost much less, around $300.
Q: What are the Different Types of Air Condition Units I Can Install?
A: There are two main types of air condition installations: window units or central HVAC systems.
Window air conditioning unit will suffice to keep a small home cool during hot summer nights. The cost of window AC system ranges from $150 to $300. The lower price reflects the performance of the system which is less potent than a central air conditioning system.
Central air units, better known as heating ventilation air condition systems (HVAC), are more suitable for larger homes with multiple rooms. The installation cost ranges from $500 and $4,000.
Q: Are There Any DIY Installation Guides?
A: If you explore around YouTube, you might find some DIY tutorials. However, this task is NOT something we recommend you attempt without a professional background and the right tools. You’d be dealing with dangerous electrical circuits, and, if you’re not careful, you can damage the equipment and injury yourself.
Q: How Long Does a Typical AC Installation Take?
A: A standard furnace installation can usually take between 4 to 10 hours. Then, an ordinary AC installation takes between 4 to 8 hours. The complete air conditioner and furnace system installation project ranges from 8 to 14 hours. At Sig Cox Augusta Air Conditioning Services, we aim to complete an entire installation in one day.
Q: When Do I need to Install a New Air Condition System?
A: You should have a yearly inspection, from which your service provider may recommend a replacement, depending on the complications. If you notice any strange noises, smells, or the unit simply doesn’t heat or cool as efficiently, these may be red flags you need immediate maintenance or replacement. If you’re system is also over 10 years old, it’s usually time to think about replacement. (for more, check out our blog “Air Conditioning Repair Vs. AC Replacement”)
To save some money, wait until winter. It can save you a rather significant amount of money to time your air conditioning installation right. Every HVAC contractor is the busiest in the spring and summer. In the winter, contractors usually knock off 10 to 20% to keep their crews working.
