How to Know When It’s Time to Replace Your Residential Air Conditioner?
Sometimes it’s easy to tell that your air conditioner unit needs to be replaced. If it’s too damaged to repair or if the repairs would cost more than a new system, a replacement is certainly the best option for you. However, there are other times when you should consider replacing even if your current air conditioning system might have more life in it.
My cooling system unexpectedly went out the week before my daughter’s wedding. We were having very hot weather, and all the ladies in the wedding were coming to my house for hair and makeup. The staff at Affordable Heating and Cooling came late on a Friday night for a diagnostic check and then worked it out to schedule my service in just a couple of days. We were thrilled to be cool for the wedding! Thank you so much!
For instance, if you’ve been calling frequently for repairs lately, you should probably start looking for a replacement system. Minor repairs start adding up if you are doing them frequently and replacing your residential air conditioner system is more cost effective. Plus, you’ll probably have to replace your system relatively soon anyway. So why keep paying to fix it?
Spending the money you would have used for repairs to have a replacement air conditioning system installed will likely save you a good bit of money in the long run. As an extra bonus, you won’t have to deal with the constant repairs anymore! Also, an air conditioner system that always needs repairs is probably not functioning very efficiently either, even when it is working. Having a more energy efficient replacement installed means that you’ll be saving a good chunk on your energy bills as well.
You should also think about the fact that, even if your current air conditioning system is working just fine, it might still be worth looking into a replacement. The newer models that are available now are so much more energy efficient than those installed 10 years ago. An older model that you’ve kept in tip top condition will still not be able to cool your home as thoroughly or with as little energy as a new one.
That energy savings will quickly offset the cost of removing your old system and replacing it with a new air conditioner. This is a wise decision because, if your system was that old to begin with, you probably didn’t have that many good years left. When it did come to the end of its life, you’d have to pay to replace it anyway. If you replace your air conditioner system proactively, however, you will start saving on your energy bills sooner.
