New AC Choice Factors: Features and Costs

In part one of this two-part blog series, we looked at some of the initial factors to be considering when looking into a new air conditioner. Especially if you’re doing so now, during one of the hottest summers on record, ensuring you’ve covered all your bases during this process is important. 

At Green Line Plumbing, Heating & Air, we’re happy to offer a wide range of heating and air conditioning services to clients around South Jordan, Bluffdale, Herriman and nearby areas. Here are some additional variables to keep in mind while selecting a new air conditioner unit. 

Specialized Features

Many of today’s air conditioners come with a wide range of additional features for convenience, energy efficiency and more. These can include everything from zoning systems to temperature timers that will let you set the temperature of each room individually, or even integrated filtration systems to help keep all the air in your home clean and free from dust, pollen, pet dander and other allergens.

As you’re considering the features you want in your AC, keep in mind that these will affect price, and also how energy efficient it is. Depending on your climate and household needs, some of them may be worth adding onto the system. 

Installation Costs 

When it comes to installation costs for a new air conditioner, there are a few things to factor in. First is the actual cost of the unit itself, including any special features you may have chosen. It’s also important to consider labor costs, as a professional installation team will need to come out and set up the system for you in order to ensure it works correctly.

In addition, don’t forget about maintenance costs once your air conditioner has been installed. Regular maintenance by a professional can help keep it running optimally and ensure that any issues are taken care of before they become major problems. 

Finally, if you’re considering purchasing an energy-efficient model to save on your monthly utility bills, make sure to factor in the cost of any potential rebates or tax credits you may qualify for when making your decision.
