Air Conditioning FAQs

If you are looking to sell your property in the near future, then a new air conditioning unit could be a great investment. Potential buyers often look for homes with new AC units because they are more powerful, use less energy, and require fewer repairs or maintenance visits. On average, new air conditioning systems increase property value by anywhere from 5-10%.

If you are installing a new air conditioner in 2023 or after, then you may qualify for a tax credit from the federal government. Effective January 1st of this year, homeowners can claim 30% of installation costs (up to a maximum of $600) on eligible units. The unit must be ENERGY STAR certified with a SEER2 rating greater than or equal to 16. If you want to claim this tax credit, our technicians can help you choose the right AC unit for your home.

Most residential air conditioners take between four and eight hours to install, though the size and complexity of the job will impact the overall timeline. If your unit is particularly large or located in a hard-to-reach area, it may take a little longer to set up. After inspecting your space, our team will let you know how long we expect your installation to take.

Though you are probably excited to get your new AC unit up and running right after it’s installed, it may need to sit anywhere from 30 minutes to 24 hours before you turn it on. This waiting period is necessary to allow the refrigerant in the AC unit to settle. After installation, our experts will tell you how long it will be until your AC is ready to use.

The size of your AC unit depends on many different factors. What type of system you’re installing, the size of your home, how many people live inside, and how well your house is insulated. Our HVAC experts can help you chose which system works best for your home!

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, it is recommended that you keep your thermostat at a close range to that of outside, to your own comfort level. Keeping your AC at a warmer temperature when you are away from your home can help you save money on energy costs!

Like with cooling your home during the summer, keeping your home at a cooler temperature during the winter can help save on energy costs. The U.S. Department of Energy states that “During winter, the lower the interior temperature, the slower the heat loss.” By keeping a cooler home, you can save on energy costs and the longevity of your HVAC unit.

Signs You May Need a New Air Conditioning System

A new AC unit is a big investment, which is why many homeowners hold onto their old systems far longer than they should. However, waiting for your current system to completely fail before investing in a replacement could leave you with two major issues: first, you may spend a few days or weeks without cool air while you wait for a service appointment, which could be uncomfortable in the hot summer months. And second, you may end up paying more than you need to due to frequent repairs or high energy bills.

Knowing when to replace your old AC unit will help you avoid both of those problems. But, how can you tell if it's finally time to invest in a new system? If you answer "yes" to one or more of these questions, you may need to replace your AC:


  • Is the current air conditioning unit more than 10 years old?
  • Are current repairs expensive and frequent?
  • Has the air conditioner started making unusual mechanical noises?
  • Has your electricity use gone up?
  • Are rooms furthest from the indoor unit not adequately cooled?
  • Would you prefer a more efficient air conditioner to cut energy cost?
  • Is having a more eco-friendly air conditioner important to you?
  • Would you enjoy better AC performance such as lower humidity, balanced temperatures and quieter operation?

Still not sure if your old system is getting too old? The experts at Apex Air are always happy to help. We can answer your repair and installation questions to help you determine the best course of action for your household, needs, and budget.

HVAC Contractor Reviews

"On the first chilly day of the season our heater would not start so we called Apex. They were able to get someone out the same day and Michael D did a great job at explaining how our system worked and got it up and going for us. Great customer service!"
