How Much Money Can a New Air Conditioner Save You?

Our SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) energy savings calculator can help determine how much you could save on your utility bills. Simply enter your current unit’s SEER value and compare it to a newer, more efficient system. You can even customize it to better match your home’s system for a more accurate calculation.

Air Conditioning Installation and Replacement

If your air conditioner has reached the point where repairs no longer do the job or your home’s energy efficiency is at an all-time low, you may need a new system. When your Ames home is ready for a new or replacement air conditioner, our C and K professionals will install your cooling system without delay.

How do you know if you need a replacement air conditioner? Here are some of the most common issues. Your unit is:

  • Approaching the end of its life span, usually between 15 and 20 years

Efficiency decreases as your system gets closer to the end of its life. You want to act proactively to plan what your replacement purchase will be instead of acting reactively when your system unexpectedly quits. This can save you money.

  • Experiencing more and more repairs

Similar to when your car requires more and more repairs, there comes a time for evaluation. Are you spending more in repairs than it would cost to invest in a new system? If the answer is yes, call and talk to one of our knowledgeable team members to discuss your options.

  • Showing signs of running inefficiently

How can you tell if your air conditioner is running inefficiently? A good indication is if your energy bills are increasing and your utility company’s rates remain steady.

This typically demonstrates it’s taking longer for your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system to cool down your Iowa home to your preferred comfort level. Your system is running longer and using more energy than it should in this case—an increase in energy costs.

If you notice any of these signs with your air conditioner, or if you suspect another reason for needing a replacement, talk to one of our C and K team members. We will design a system best matched for your comfort needs and budget. Our experts are always here to help you.

We also offer several financing options to help if this is a concern. Contact us to discuss how our team can guide you through our process.

Air Conditioning Repairs

Not having your air conditioner working on the hottest of days in Iowa can be exasperating. Whenever you need a repair, let our heating and cooling experts quickly remedy it for you.

There are many ways your air conditioner can stop working in its normal capacity. A few symptoms you could experience are:

  • Hearing an unusual noise
  • Smelling an unusual odor like burning
  • Feeling warm air coming from your vents
  • Noticing your air conditioner is frozen
  • Leaking water

These symptoms mean you have an issue with your air conditioner. Ignoring problems usually only makes them bigger and more costly. Our recommendation is to have one of our C and K team members promptly diagnose and repair the issue for you.

Sometimes a repair turns into an emergency. Give us a call when it’s urgent. We are here 24/7 for you.

When you do need our professionals to make a repair, you can count on it staying repaired. We make our repairs right the first time—and only use the highest quality parts and materials when working on your system. Our experts are always here for you.

Air Conditioning Maintenance

Keeping your air conditioner in its best operating condition is your goal. You want your system inspected, cleaned, and tuned up on a regular basis to help avoid unexpected and costly repairs and breakdowns.
