Air Conditioning Replacement

Should I Replace My Air Conditioning System?

Three main factors generally determine whether it’s time to replace or upgrade your air conditioner:

1. Working Condition

Does your system break down often? Has it been maintained poorly? If you answered “Yes” to either of these, then it’s worth considering a replacement.

2. Efficiency

Does your unit cool down your home or business quickly? How about cooling it evenly? If not, then it may be smarter to invest in a newer unit. Plus, the latest models have higher efficiency ratings than older units. With the difference in efficiency levels, you’ll recover your initial investment in just a few years through savings on both repairs and energy bills.

3. Life Expectancy

The average air conditioning unit lasts for roughly 8 years, but the local climate wears out most systems more quickly. Around this age, you’ll find that you need more frequent repairs and that the unit works less efficiently. This leads to higher utility bills, more expensive repairs, and a less comfortable indoor environment.

If you’re not sure whether you should replace your air conditioning system, our knowledgeable professionals can help you evaluate your current unit. We’ll help you compare the expected costs of maintenance and repairs to the costs of installing a newer, more efficient system.
