As Ireland HVAC says in their recent blog post, “Installing a central air conditioning system will significantly improve your family’s comfort and well-being. Take the time to learn about alternatives and considerations before embarking on a first-time installation or replacing an inefficient or cantankerous device.”
The post says that customers should expect a new central air conditioner to last between 15 to 20 years with the appropriate maintenance. This is a long time in which to commit to a single appliance or system, so the customer should also consider whether it will fulfill all their needs for the duration of its lifespan. A family, for instance, may grow over time (and add more rooms to their house), and the AC may need to do more work. This could put more stress on the appliance than it is designed for, thus shortening its lifespan.
On the other hand, should a customer realize that their needs have changed and the central air conditioning system they purchased a few short years ago is no longer up to the task, their only option may be to go through the process of replacing it. In certain situations, this cannot be avoided, but those who are fortunate enough to know how their needs can evolve should take these factors into account when making their purchase. It will help future-proof the system and ensure they will not have to worry about replacements till it has served its time.
Ireland HVAC says there are seven factors a customer should consider when looking for the right system, the first of which is its size. Their post explains, “The air conditioning system must be appropriately sized for the cooled space. A tiny system will force the appliance to operate continuously in a futile attempt to maintain the required temperature. An overburdened system is more likely to fail prematurely and consume excessive electricity, both of which the homeowner will be charged for each month.”
Conversely, a system that is too large has drawbacks as well. Ireland HVAC says a home with an excessively large system will not be cooled evenly, leading to noticeable (and uncomfortable) differences in temperature across the property. Such systems are also known to have trouble dehumidifying the air, which may cause chilly yet moist air. Homeowners with sensitive electronics may especially wish to take note of this as it could lead to excess condensation in unwanted areas.
Customers should also consider the system’s quality and durability, especially with regard to their budget. Certain brands are more trusted than others, and it may be enough to trust that their systems offer great value at each price point.

In any case, however, Ireland HVAC advises against going for the cheapest option available. A manufacturer may cut a lot of corners to bring costs down so low, and this will likely have an impact on the system’s quality, especially where efficiency is concerned. In time, the savings a customer makes on a cheap system will be lost when they notice higher energy usage. Such systems are also notorious for having shorter lifespans and needing more maintenance, again increasing the long-term cost.
There are certain cases where the AC itself should not be the only system under scrutiny prior to a purchase. Ireland HVAC says that ductwork in older homes, for instance, may have faulty joints, allowing cold air to disperse incorrectly if the deals fail. Similarly, the ductwork may be dusty or have blockages that restrict airflow. Any of these external factors can reduce the efficiency of a new AC system, so it is recommended that any issues be corrected prior to the installation of a new air conditioning unit.
Should any of this sound too complicated or stressful to handle alone, Ireland HVAC says the team is standing by to share recommendations for air conditioning systems, inspect and perform maintenance on ancillary systems (such as ductwork) and install a brand new system for their customers. More tips are available in the full blog post, but customers can skip most of this simply by calling the company today.
