Helping You Find a New, Improved, and Cost-Efficient Air Conditioner
Replacing your home’s air conditioning system is one of the most important decisions you can make for your home. Sometimes it is fairly obvious when your air conditioner needs to be replaced, but many times it’s not easy to know if you should repair or replace it. This is precisely where we can help you make an informed decision about your unit.
With higher electricity costs and the new high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, it usually makes sense to replace an older system. A new HVAC system will not only improve the comfort of your home, but it will also your monthly utility bills significantly-sometimes as much as 50%!
You should consider getting a new air conditioner if:
- Your air conditioning system is more than 10 years old. Air conditioners, with proper maintenance, can be expected to work at a high level for 10 to 15 years. Beyond that point, your air conditioning system will become far less efficient, while needing more frequent repairs and not cooling as effectively as it once did.
- Your AC system requires frequent repairs. If your air conditioning system is frequently breaking down and requiring repairs, it’s a good idea to replace rather than repair. A good tip is to estimate the cost of the last 6 months of repairs plus the anticipated repairs for the next 6 months-compare that to the price of a new unit, and choose the cheaper option.
- Your AC system is making loud or unusual noises. If your air conditioner is making loud or unusual noises, it probably has a major issue that could make replacement a better investment than repair.
- Your cooling costs are increasing. Running an old air conditioning system wastes energy and money, which you can see in a higher energy bill.
