3 Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Air Conditioner

We know you may be hoping to save money for a little longer. But it’s so helpful to replace your air conditioner before it completely breaks down. A broken-down air conditioning system is something no one wants to deal with, and you’ll spend more time and energy getting an emergency replacement system than if you have time to plan for your replacement.

Here are a few signs that mean you may want to schedule that AC replacement appointment ASAP.

It’s Inefficient

If your air conditioner just won’t work efficiently, and it’s more than 10-15 years old, it’s time for a change. A well-maintained, quality air conditioner only has about this long before it starts to run into quite a few issues. Your energy costs eventually start to go up, and problems are bound to show up soon enough.

It Needs a Lot of Work

If you seem to be spending money left and right to fix your air conditioning issues, it may not be worth it. This is particularly true if a repair or replacement part would cost about half the price of a brand new system. Even if you decide to repair instead of replace, you cannot be sure that the rest of the air conditioner will hold up. Introducing a new part can make your mismatched system have to work harder, and the other components of your air conditioner are likely to follow suit soon enough.

If you have to pay a lot for a repair, or if parts just keep failing, a new air conditioner could be the better choice.

You’ve Been Told an AC Breakdown Is Coming

When you know that your air conditioner could break down at any time, start planning for replacement ASAP. Call your technicians, find out what your new system options are, and get an estimate. Make sure you have a high-efficiency installation, and that your new unit is installed by professionals with plenty of training and experience.
