Why Consider Air Conditioning Replacement?
There are four key factors to consider when it comes to replacing your existing whole house air conditioner:
- Number of repairs
- Energy efficiency
- Overall performance
First, let’s look at age. Every mechanical system has an average lifespan, and if your current AC has reached this age, or is older, you need to know that it is more prone to problems and breakdown than newer, more reliable systems. This is something to think about, especially when it comes to repairs. If you have to make a number of repairs to your air conditioner to keep it operational, your money may be better spent on a system you can count on. Energy efficiency is also a big factor, as today’s air conditioners are the most energy efficient around; this means you could be missing out on significant savings each month with your energy bills. Lastly, you need to look at overall performance: are there lots of hot and cold spots in your home? Does your AC have a hard time reaching your desired temperature? The whole reason to have whole home air conditioning is to be comfortable, and if your aging system isn’t doing this, it may be time to consider replacement.
