Upgrade and Save on Your Air Conditioner
How long have you owned your air conditioning unit? If you bought it more than 10 years ago, consider an upgrade. HVAC technology has become much more efficient since you bought your last air conditioner. Upgrading to a new model could cut your energy costs by up to 40 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
How Do Air Conditioners Work?
Your air conditioner does not add cold air to your home—it removes heat. In simple terms, the equipment harvests warmth and humidity from the air and sends it outside. From there, fans blow the leftover chilled air through your ductwork and into your living space.
Your air conditioning unit has four main components:
- Evaporator coil
- Expansion valve
Your air conditioner uses a chemical called refrigerant to absorb heat. You may be familiar with Freon, the most common name brand of refrigerants.
Here’s how the cooling cycle works:
- The evaporator coil extracts heat from inside your home. The refrigerant soaks up the heat.
- The compressor puts pressure on the refrigerant.
- The condenser releases the heat outdoors.
- The expansion valve regulates the refrigerant’s flow back to the evaporator.
Air Conditioner Installation and Replacement
Should you get a new air conditioner or keep the old one? As a homeowner, you’ll have to answer that question at some point—and it’s not always an easy decision. On average, cooling units last 10 to 15 years with good maintenance.
Besides age, here are some signs it’s time to get a new AC:
- High energy or repair costs
- High humidity levels
- Insufficient cooling
Like an old car that you have to keep taking to the shop, an air conditioner that frequently breaks down is likely ready for retirement. Repair costs add up quickly. At some point, it may be more cost-effective to upgrade.

What Is a Good SEER Rating?
The term SEER stands for seasonal energy efficiency ratio. It measures how much energy your air conditioning system uses to operate. The higher the SEER number, the more efficiently your air conditioner will run.
How Much Money Can a New Air Conditioner Save You?
Our SEER 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.

Call Cardwell HVAC & Plumbing Today for Quality Air Conditioning Services
” We live in an 80+ year old home that needed central A/C. The people before us owned the home for 47 years, why hadn’t they installed central A/C? Well, 5 estimates later we found out why — older homes are complicated and expensive to install central A/C. We were hesitant to lose our basement to giant duct work since we bought the house with every intention of our basement being USABLE space for our family of 5. …Bob Cardwell to the rescue! Bob explained high velocity duct work to us which would not impact our basement at all! We would also lose minimal closet space (inches really) and be able to install central A/C in our older home quickly, efficiently, and cost effectively. Since installation was happening in the heat of June Bob brought us portable air conditioners to keep our family comfortable during the installation process (much needed since we have a 4 year old, 2 year old, and 8 month old) and the temperatures were in the 90s for days! The crew worked tirelessly to get the project installed quickly and they were always very respectful of our home. Might I add that after having 5 estimates I simply liked Bob the best too. He is personable, a wonderful listener, and extremely knowledgable about the various services (regular vs high velocity, dual zone vs one unit, ect.) Overall we’ve had the new air cranking since installation and we are extremely happy. I’ve recommended Bob to EVERYONE who is looking for A/C repair or installation. He is truly a professional and the work is excellent! ”
“We hired Cardwell HVAC to repair our air conditioning system. They were very prompt, courteous and prepared us for what was to be done. Very helpful.”
” Bob Cardwell from Cardwell Heating & Air Conditioning is the Best! We were having a lot of issues with one of our units that Bob did not install. He was able to contact the manufacturer and get us a new unit for free. It was a lot of time and effort on his part and not his problem. Bob and his employees are always on time and courteous and professional. I would highly recommend Cardwell Heating & Air Conditioning to everyone. ”
“ I had a great experience with Cardwell. My initial phone call was returned promptly and an appointment was scheduled that day when my AC stopped running. Brian came and explained everything and had my system up and running in no time. Would recommend giving Cardwell a call if you need service. ”
” Thank you again for your expertise, professionalism, and diligence in resolving the issues with the hot water heater. You have restored my faith that there really are reliable and trustworthy people in this world. I would also like to commend Brian for his professional manner and patient way of explaining to me everything he did in the process. I felt very confident and comfortable having him in my home and working on the system. I hope to not need your services any time in the near future, except for maintenance on the HVAC system and next year on the water heater! I will continue to recommend you to my friends and family. ”
“ My wife and I recently bought a home in Haddonfield and Bob Cardwell and his team replaced our old air-conditioning system. Everything from the initial consultation through to the completion of the project was handled efficiently, professionally, courteously and with the utmost integrity. We were delighted with the results of their work. We highly recommend Cardwell HVAC and would not hesitate to use them again. Excellent company, excellent team and excellent work! ”
“ Bob did quality work in repairing my heating duct. In the future I will need a new heating and ac unit. He provided me with quality information/proposals. I plan to be contacting Bob again in the future. ”
“ Sometimes it’s the little things. When Bob came to service our central air conditioning system, the first thing he did was put on paper booties over his shoes so that he didn’t track dirt in the house. Everything was explained and discussed with me. He was efficient, polite and reasonably priced. I would definitely call again! ”
“ When my system needed service, I called Cardwell HVAC. They called me back, set up an appointment, showed up on time and within an hour or so, the repair was complete. ”
