Falmouth AC Installation
If your air conditioner is more than 15 years old, it may be time to consider a replacement. The components in an old air conditioner could be wearing out, which leads to higher energy costs, unreliable performance, and frequent repairs. Air conditioners are designed to last between 10 and 15 years, but many are prematurely retired due to improper maintenance. A new air conditioner will provide reliable cooling for years to come, which will reduce your home’s carbon footprint and save you money on your utility bills.
At Cape Cod Heat Pumps, we offer expert AC installation and replacement services throughout Falmouth and the surrounding areas. Our team of experienced and highly trained technicians will help you choose the right system for your home and seamlessly install it, to ensure you have a comfortable home even in the middle of summer.

The Importance of Properly Sizing Your Next AC
The first step in selecting a new air conditioner is to determine the proper size. The capacity rating of an air conditioner is the amount of heat that can be removed from a space in one hour. This rating is expressed in British Thermal Units (BTU) per hour. The BTU rating of an air conditioner must be at least 10% greater than the space to be cooled in order to provide effective cooling.
The air conditioner’s BTU rating is determined by the square footage of the area to be cooled, the number of stories in the building, the outdoor temperature, and the insulation level of the house. The outdoor temperature is the most important factor in determining the BTU rating. For example, an air conditioner with a BTU rating of 14,000 is sufficient to cool a 1,500 square foot house on a hot summer day when the outdoor temperature is 100 degrees.
The other important factor in selecting an air conditioner is the SEER rating. The SEER rating stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, and it is a measure of how energy-efficient an air conditioner is. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy-efficient the air conditioner is. The Department of Energy recommends that homeowners choose an air conditioner with a SEER rating of at least 14. Air conditioning systems with a SEER rating of 14 or higher will save you money on your utility bills and have a low annual cost of operation.
Is It Time to Replace Your AC?
If you are considering a new air conditioner, it is helpful to know when to replace the old unit. There are several signs that indicate it is time to retire your air conditioner. If you notice any of the following issues with your air conditioner, it is time to consider replacing the unit.
- Your air conditioner is more than 10 years old
- Your utility bills have been increasing
- Your AC runs for long periods of time, but your home is still hot
- Your air conditioner requires frequent repairs
- Your air conditioner requires costly repairs, such as a new compressor
- Your air conditioner is loud when it runs
If you are considering replacing your air conditioner, it is a good idea to compare heating systems and air conditioners from different companies. The best way to compare air conditioners is to evaluate the efficiency and cost of operation of each unit. An air conditioner that is more efficient will save you money on your utility bills and will have a lower annual cost of operation. It is also important to select an air conditioning system that has a high SEER rating. The SEER rating stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, and it is a measure of how energy-efficient an air conditioner is. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy-efficient the air conditioner is. The Department of Energy recommends that homeowners choose an air conditioner with a SEER rating of at least 14.
