Is it Time to Buy a New AC System?
Homeowners often fail to identify the warning signs that signal a serious AC equipment problem is imminent. Even units that seem to be running well may have hidden deficiencies. If you’re noticing any of the following issues, it could be time to consider buying a new air conditioner:
- Comfort Deficits: The main purpose of your air conditioning system is to keep the living area comfortable. If certain rooms in your home are always warm and muggy, your AC equipment may be improperly sized or operationally impaired.
- Mounting Utility Costs: Are your summer electric bills rising every year? It might be weather-related, but your AC unit could be losing capacity. Over time, efficiency declines, especially for equipment that hasn’t been properly maintained. You could save hundreds of dollars every year by installing a high efficiency model.
- Aging Equipment: Most central air conditioners run reliably for 10-15 years, but the introduction of advanced technology continues to raise efficiency and lower operating costs. A new air conditioning installation could actually pay for itself over the lifetime of the equipment.
- Rising Repair Costs: If your AC unit keeps breaking down, you may need comprehensive air conditioning installation service. A non-warranty compressor failure isn’t worth fixing, and you should consider purchasing a new high efficiency model.
