3 Ways to Avoid Frozen Pipes

December 27, 2018

According to insurance industry statistics, 250,000 Americans have at least one room damaged by water from frozen pipes each winter. The cost of removing the water and repairing the damage exceeds $4 billion annually. It doesn’t matter if you’re used to cold weather or live in a mild climate, frozen pipes can affect you.

Frequent Air Conditioner Repairs

Replace My Air Conditioner

Just like a car, an air conditioning system will require professional maintenance to perform at its best. It might even need to be repaired on occasion. But when those repairs become more frequent and more expensive, contact Choice Comfort Services about the cost of a new system versus the cost of a major repair.

Rising Energy Bills

According to U.S. Energy Information Administration, more than half of a household’s energy usage, on average, comes from heating and air conditioning. If your utility bills are rising and you have not noticed a big change in the weather or your indoor temperature settings, it might be time to have your system inspected by Choice Comfort Services.

Is Your AC Unit 10 Years Old or More?

Unlike fine wine, air conditioners do not get better with age. Replacing an AC unit that is more than ten years old with a new, ENERGY STAR® model from the Carrier line of air conditioners might save you up to 20 percent on your cooling or heating costs, according to energystar.gov.

The AC System is Running, but It is Still Hot Inside

Sometimes, an AC system needs a little more time to cool your home, especially when it is extra hot and humid outside. Other times, there is an underlying mechanical issue that is causing the issue – loss of refrigerant charge, outdoor coil freezing over, or a clogged filter or coil for example. If your system consistently struggles to maintain your comfort, it is time to contact your Carrier dealer to assess the health of your system.

While there is no hard and fast rule that indicates it is time to replace your current AC system, Choice Comfort Services can help you assess the state of your current system, provide cost estimates for repairs versus replacing, and provide estimates on future energy savings use with a new, higher efficiency setup so you can make an informed decision that is right for you and your family.
