When is it Time to for a New Air Conditioner?
It’s a delicate balancing act of knowing when to spend money on repairs or put that money into investing for brand new equipment. Whether it’s time to repair or replace could depend a lot on how well you’ve kept up with the maintenance of your air conditioner, but sometimes there’s just not much you can do to save it. Here are some signs that your air conditioner might be on its last leg:
Is Your Air Conditioner Nearing Retirement?
Most air conditioning units are nearing their golden age around 20 years. After that, it might still run but maybe less efficiently which costs you money through higher energy bills.
Constantly Calling Us for Repairs?
If it reaches the point where we’re almost part of the family because we’re at your house so much, it might be time to consider a new system. While it might cost you more upfront, you’ll end up saving in the long run.
Are You Getting Warm?
If your home is heating up when it’s supposed to be cooling down, it could be a sign that your refrigerant is low. If the unit is older, and needs a shot of refrigerant annually, it could be a sign that a new one will be needed sooner than later.
