How Do I Know When to Replace My AC?
Many homeowners have a difficult time deciding whether to keep pouring money into their aging air conditioning system for costly repairs or to upgrade to a new, more efficient AC.
Sometimes it’s easy to make the case for an AC replacement—your AC is completely broken, for example. However, if your air conditioner isn’t in immediate danger of failure, there are a couple of things you should consider when thinking about AC replacement:
Energy costs – air conditioners made 10 years ago are less than half as efficient as current air conditioners. In fact, the minimum SEER for any ACs manufactured now is 13 and many systems exceed that.
Return on investment – when you’re improving your home’s energy efficiency with an AC replacement, you can help lower your utility payments—it can even start creating a healthy return on investment over time.
Your current AC is too noisy – you can spring for AC repairs to fix the noise or you can invest in an AC replacement to fix it forever.
Your AC breaks down at inconvenient times – if your air conditioner seems to break down every time you run it hard (such as when it’s really hot out), this could be a sign that it’s not cut out to work properly whenever you need it.
