When to Consider Replacing Your Air Conditioner
We understand that homeowners want to get the best possible return on the equipment that they invest in, and that for most homeowners this means using a system as long as is possible. We also understand that pushing a system too far can result in the need for an emergency replacement on one of the hottest days of the year, though. Remember, your air conditioner does not need to completely break down before replacing it. In fact, allowing that to happen is not ideal.
So when might you want to start thinking about replacing your air conditioner? We recommend doing so in the following situations.
- Your air conditioner is beyond its expected lifespan. All air conditioners have finite lifespans. Determine what the expected lifespan of your air conditioning system is. If you are already beyond that point, you may want to let the system go out on a high note before it fails on you.
- Your air conditioner costs too much to operate. Maybe your system has lost some of its efficiency capability over the years. Maybe you bought an inefficient system because it was all that you could afford at the time of purchase. Whatever the case may be, upgrading to a more efficient system can save you money in the long run.
- Your air conditioner doesn’t really suit your needs and preferences. Do you have a decent size house with numerous inhabitants? Are people often arguing over the temperature settings. You could zone your existing system, but you could also consider upgrading your system to something like a ductless mini split, which offers great control and the added benefit of efficient heating in the winter.
- Your air conditioner is not reliable. Remember, just because it is possible to repair a mechanical system does not always mean that this is the best step to take. If your air conditioner requires frequent repairs, spending that money toward a new, more reliable system may make more sense than continuing to repair your existing one.
