Is It Time for AC Replacement?

Spring is a great time to assess your home’s needs, and if it’s time to replace an outdated air conditioner, now is the perfect time to do it. It isn’t always obvious when it’s time to replace an air conditioner, especially when your system is still running, so our experts have listed a few factors to consider. One thing that never changes is that it’s imperative to hire an expert for your AC work, especially for a system replacement. Our specialists can help you size and install a new replacement for your Pittsburgh, PA, home, so just give us a call today!

What Do I Need to Consider?

The first factor you need to consider when it comes to possible air conditioning replacement is the age of your system. Traditional air conditioners have an average lifespan of 10-12 years and heat pumps have a lifespan of 20-25 years. As air conditioners age and get closer to maturity, they are more prone to malfunction and breakdown. A second factor that should be considered for replacement are numerous repairs or a costly repair. As the homeowner, you need to weigh whether or not your money is best spent on an aging system or on a new, reliable one. Lastly, you want to consider performance. Energy efficiency tends to decline as an air conditioner ages, and it may be more and more difficult for your AC to keep you as comfortable as you want to be.

Always Work with an Expert

If it seems like it’s time for a replacement air conditioner for your home, your first step should always be to work with an expert. The AC specialists at Boehmer Heating & Cooling can help you every step of the way, so call us today and schedule an appointment!
