When is it time for an AC Replacement?
AC Replacement is often done out of necessity, but how can you easily tell when it’s needed?
It’s recommended that you replace your air conditioner before it reaches the point of total breakdown and is rendered useless. When an AC replacement is done ahead of time it allows you to not have to worry about being left without cold air in a hot and humid home this summer or possibly later, and ensures that you’re prepared for the summer months ahead. Scheduling an appointment can be done at any time, you can plan the appointment, and make sure that you’re getting what you want and what is needed for your home — hassle free and cost effective.
Although, who would want to replace an air conditioner that still has life left in it? Here’s how to know when it’s really time for AC replacement.
- Expensive Repair Fees. When fixing your old system becomes too pricey for your wallet to justify it, it may be redundant to continue repairing your current system. If repairs are costing you more than half the price of a new system, then it’s time for an upgrade, especially if your current AC unit is over ten years old. If you’re doing repairs on your system now, then it’s likely that there’ll be more repairs in the future which will exceed the cost of an AC replacement.
- Your current AC unit is too old. When your AC unit has been used in your home for 10+ years, it starts to become old and inefficient, and around this time is when it would be in your best interest to consider AC replacement. Replacing your old AC unit means that you won’t have to worry about experiencing an unexpected air conditioner breakdown in the near future, and your new AC unit will cost less for you to run each month.
- Your AC unit isn’t the proper size for your home. When your AC isn’t the right size it may require an early replacement. An undersized AC unit might not satisfy your home’s cooling needs, and will at some point become overworked. An oversized AC unit may short cycle and end up burning out by using energy to start up more regularly than it’s intended to.
