As important as furnace repair is in the winter, air conditioner repair is just as important in the summer. However, depending on a few factors, you may be better off buying a new unit than repairing your old one. While you may be uncomfortable for a few days while your new air conditioner is being installed, the long-term benefits are worth it. Here are a few factors to consider that will help you decide whether your household will benefit from the purchase and installation of a new air conditioning system:
The Age of Your System: The average lifespan of a furnace is between 15 and 20 years. The average lifespan of an air conditioner, however, is just 10 to 12 years. If your current air conditioner is more than a decade old, then buying a new unit may be a smarter financial decision. After all, the cost of buying a new air conditioner is much less than the cost of multiple repairs.
The Cost to Repair Your Unit: Depending on the extent of the necessary repairs, it may actually be cheaper to simply buy a new unit. Thanks to grants, rebates, and a host of other financial incentives, you might be closer to affording a new, energy-efficient air conditioner than you thought. Rusk Heating & Cooling also offers a number of financing options to help you cover the cost of buying the new AC system your home needs.
Your Monthly Cooling Costs: If you’ve taken the appropriate steps to improve your household’s energy efficiency and yet you still receive expensive energy bills each month, the problem may be with your old, inefficient air conditioner. When you replace your old air conditioner with a new, energy-efficient unit from Rusk Heating & Cooling, you can expect to save a considerable amount of money on your annual heating and cooling costs. In fact, installing a new, high-efficiency cooling system will actually pay for itself in energy savings in just a few years.

As a certified Carrier dealer, Rusk Heating & Cooling is in the business of making your home as comfortable and energy efficient as it can possibly be. To accomplish this goal, we offer some of the most advanced heating and cooling systems available today. One of our most popular cooling solutions is a ductless split air conditioning system. To help you decide if this comfort system is right for your home, here is a look at the advantages offered by a ductless split air conditioning system:
- Room-by-Room Cooling: One of the biggest advantages of a split air conditioning system is that it offers room-by-room cooling. As a result, ductless systems minimize the over-cooling that can result from traditional forced-air systems. Because each room is cooled independently, less energy is needed to deliver cool air to the areas of the home that require it. In other words, ductless split air conditioning systems can actually be less expensive to run than central air-conditioning systems.
- Easy to Install: As the name implies, ductless air conditioning systems do not rely on ductwork to deliver cool air. Instead, these comfort systems simply require copper tubing and electrical wiring. This means that ductless systems are quite easy to install and can be installed virtually anywhere in your home, including lofts, garages, attic workspaces, and anywhere else that doesn’t have a built-in air duct system.
- Quiet: An added benefit of ductless split air conditioning systems is that they are remarkably quiet, especially compared to traditional forced-air systems. This means that ductless systems are great for small apartments, home offices, and anywhere else where silence is appreciated. If you’ve been living with a rattling air conditioner for a few years, you will especially appreciate the peace and quiet offered by a ductless split air conditioning system.
To learn how a ductless split air conditioning system can keep your home cool, comfortable and quiet, contact Rusk Heating & Cooling today. As your trusted Cincinnati area Carrier dealer, we offer some of the most advanced and energy-efficient home heating and cooling solutions available today.

High temperatures only mean one thing to many homeowners: higher bills. Many people view higher energy bills during the summer as a fact of life. However, there are ways to stay cool this summer without increasing your energy bills.
- Use Ceiling Fans
By merely raising your thermostat two or three degrees and using a ceiling fan instead, you can save a substantial amount of money. Ceiling fans do not change the actual temperature, but they do increase the rate at which liquids evaporate, including perspiration from human skin. This can reduce the apparent temperature by several degrees. Since the effects are only perceptive, turning fans off when you leave the room will save energy and money without increasing the temperature.
- Check and Replace Air Filters
A dirty air filter obstructs the air conditioning system, requiring the air conditioner to consume more energy to circulate air throughout your home and reducing its overall effect. Lowering your thermostat to adjust for the reduced efficiency will further increase your costs. Regularly changing your air filters is a simple way to increase the efficiency and lifespan of your air conditioner.
- Keep Shades Closed
One of the best ways to reduce your energy bill is to simply cover up your windows. When the sun shines through your window, the house can heat up quite a bit. Instead of turning down your thermostat, just cover your windows with blinds or curtains.
- Turn Off Appliances When Not In Use
If you leave for vacation, turn off any light that isn’t necessary for security purposes. Avoid using unnecessary energy by turning off computers, televisions, and other electronics that aren’t being used. If you can avoid using your stove and oven on a frequent basis, do so.
If you are interested in saving even more money by switching your Cincinnati home to a geothermal heating and cooling system, call Rusk Heating, Cooling and Geothermal at (859) 431-4040.
