Have you been wondering whether it’s time to replace your air conditioning system? Well, wonder no more, because today we bring you four ways to tell when it’s time to replace your unit.
Your Air Conditioner Is More Than 10 Years Old
Air conditioners are designed to have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years. However, this may change depending on many factors. If your AC unit is more than 10 years old and presents some of the other issues included below, then it may be time to replace your air conditioning.
Your AC Requires Frequent Repairs
Repairs are part of AC ownership, but when they become frequent, you should start considering replacing your unit. This is especially true if after crunching some numbers you realize that what you are paying in repairs would cover the cost of a new AC.
Your AC Unit Is Inefficient
If your AC usage remains the same but you notice a sudden spike in your energy bills, then your air conditioning may be the culprit. Also in this case, replacing your unit may make financial sense. By cutting back on your energy usage you may easily cover the cost of a new unit without any of the hassles that come with an inefficient unit.
Your Home Isn’t as Comfortable as It Used To
Finally, if your home isn’t as comfortable as it used to with the same AC settings, then you may want to schedule first a professional tune-up. A trained AC technician can help you identify the source of the problem and help you decide whether you need to repair or replace your unit.
