It’s a Good Idea to Update Your Indoor and Outdoor Units at The Same Time – Here’s Why!

We know it’s cheaper to replace just the broken parts of your heating and cooling system. However, there are several reasons to consider updating the entire system when a technician visits, including these:

Reason # 1: If one unit is upgraded while the other remains outdated, they may operate less efficiently together.

Reason # 2: Complete compatible systems with a higher seasonal energy efficiently ratio can save energy and lower your utility bills.

Reason # 3: Replacing both units will help you spend less money on future repairs.

Reason # 4: You’ll have less overall control of your home’s comfort and humidity levels because of old technology.

Protect Your Air Conditioner From Theft!

Has there been a recent string of air conditioner thefts in your neighborhood?

Do you realize that air conditioning units are considered BIG money for thieves?

Are you worried about protecting your investment?

Police believe that thieves are stealing the copper and other metal parts from your AC unit and selling them as scrap. Is the price of copper going up? AC owners beware! The more copper is worth, the more likely thieves will swipe your AC unit for cash.

According to Angie’s List, there’re a few things you can do to make your air conditioning unit more resistant to theft:

  1. Securely lock the AC unit to its concrete pad
  2. Install an alarm that detects voltage interruptions
  3. Remove nearby landscaping or yard fencing if it obstructs the view of your unit
  4. Install or improve lighting around the air conditioning unit
  5. Spray or brush information in microdots on the copper tubing
  6. Engrave vital information on your AC

If you do one or more of the above tips to protect your unit, it may be less likely to be stolen. If you engraved your serial number on your copper tubing, then your stolen parts could be found. If you’re in need of a replacement unit, we can help you!
