“Daddy, I’m sleepy,” says our youngest, age three. She’s rubbing her eyes and it strikes me as odd because I know she napped at daycare and has been going to bed on a schedule. But I look at her eyes and see dark circles. She’s not exaggerating and she really does look tired.
When it’s affecting your loved ones
When I ask my wife her thoughts, she also admits to feeling extra fatigued lately. “Yeah, I just haven’t been getting a good night’s’ rest lately and I’ve probably been more stressed from work.” I don’t really know what’s caused the recent decline in our sleep quality at the time, but I keep it in the back of my mind. After coming home one evening from work, I notice it feels warmer. “Is it just me, or does it feel hotter than usual inside?” I ask. Everyone agrees. The thermostat is set to a reasonable setting, and the filter looks clean. “What in the world is going on?”
Debating between replacement and repairs
Life is busy, particularly for working parents with small children. John and his family were all losing sleep because their AC wasn’t performing like it used to and it was wearing out. In this case, the AC was getting old and it was time to start thinking about AC installation in Fontana, CA with a replacement unit. While they could have gotten a repair, they started with a maintenance appointment from us at Daniels Heating & AC.
How Daniels Heating & AC helped John and his family decide
We gave them options. A replacement was possible but it would cost more than $500 and the unit was older. John knew the previous owners of the home had it installed when they first moved in but they didn’t seem like the types to schedule seasonal maintenance. After considering repairs for a brief while and deciding without a warranty and way of knowing another problem wouldn’t start soon after, John decided, “enough is enough”.
The decision point
A new AC offered him several benefits the costly repair could not. First, his system would be in warranty from the manufacturer and from us for labor on installation. Second, the model would do a better job cooling the home. Newer models are more powerful yet run more efficiently. Lastly, he knew he wanted his daughter to grow up in this home, so the investment in a new system would pay off in energy bill savings over time.
