Benefits of Installing a New Air Conditioner

Adding a new air conditioner to your home or replacing your old system may seem like a major project. However, we can assure you that it is a worthwhile investment, especially if your old HVAC system has seen better days. Here are some of the benefits you can expect if you install a new air conditioner.

Higher Energy Efficiency

Newer AC units tend to be more energy efficient, which means they will save you money on energy costs. This is great news for Floridians who like to blast the AC and keep homes pleasantly cool during the summer months. If your air conditioner is over a decade old, you are missing out on more recent technologies that make units more efficient.

No More Stress

If your current AC requires frequent repairs or maintenance, installing a new one will reduce your stress. Sometimes it is best to replace your old AC unit if it does not function properly or breaks down frequently, even if it is technically not at the end of its expected lifespan.

Quieter Machinery

More recent technology means a new air conditioner will likely be quieter than your old one. You will hardly even notice that it’s there.

Switch It Up

Are you itching to try a different energy source? Maybe you’ve thought about changing to a heat pump rather than traditional central air. An air conditioner installation in Panama City allows you to examine your options and alter your current system to better fit your needs.

AC Purchase Considerations

A new AC installation in Panama City, FL is not a purchase to make lightly. You may have this system for at least 15 years – especially if you keep up with maintenance – and it will work hard nearly every day to keep your Florida home comfortable and cool. At Ridge Heating and Air Conditioning, we will gladly walk you through your options for installation. However, there are some things you can think about from the get-go to help you make your decision.


The first thing you’ll need to consider is your budget. You should think about this in two ways: what are you willing to pay upfront? And what can you budget for when it comes to your monthly and annual maintenance and energy costs? You may decide that making a higher investment with your initial purchase is worth the eventual cost savings of a model that requires fewer repairs or an energy source that is less expensive.

AC Type

There are multiple different types of air conditioners on the market. The most common is a standard whole-house central AC system, but you may be interested in a ductless system, a heat pump, or other alternatives. Speaking with the professionals at Ridge Heating and Air Conditioning will help you choose the best option for you.

Fuel or Energy Type

Your air conditioning may most typically run on electricity or gas power. If your current system runs on one type of fuel, this is the time to consider changing if needed. Some HVAC companies, like Ridge Heating and Air Conditioning, also perform geothermal services, so you have the option for an incredibly energy-efficient fuel source.


You may want to consider how important energy efficiency is to your purchase. Air conditioners typically have a rating that indicates their expected energy efficiency. Since lower energy usage also means lower costs for you, this may factor into your long term budget expectations.
