Did you know that an ineffective air filter can increase your monthly bills as much as 15%? How much can a whole defective system amount to? Think about it!
For most homeowners, deciding when to replace their old A/C is a tough choice to make. But don’t worry! We’ll share a few signs to know when you need to invest in a new air conditioning unit.
If you’ve paid thousands for repairs and yet, there’s always one issue after another, then it’s high time to consider a replacement. A repair cost that’s higher than the price of a new unit isn’t worth it! Save yourself from headaches and stress by investing in a new cooling system that can serve you better and longer.
More Than a Decade Old Unit
No matter how well you take care of your unit, there will come a time that you’ll need to replace it. After decades of using your system, a drop off in its performance will eventually take its course. This means your cooling system will work harder and longer than normal to meet your comfort demands.
An undeniable fact about old an A/C is that they lack some features and functionality that modern air conditioners have. So if you want better comfort and convenience at home, you won’t think twice about getting a new unit.
High Energy Bills
Not only does that old air conditioning systems have lower SEER ratings, but they also tend to operate longer than needed with worn out parts and components. When they work beyond their limit, it could mean higher electric monthly bills. An A/C should have at least 13 SEER rating to call it energy efficient. By replacing your existing system, you’re sure that you can get the most of your savings without worrying about the next bills to come.
Unsatisfactory Home Comfort
Have you noticed any odd behavior on your unit? Or are you having a difficult time maintaining your indoor temperature? Then, it’s a sign of an aging air conditioner or an installation issue. Regardless, it’s a must for your air conditioner to do its job! If it can’t, then you should probably consider replacing it with a new unit sooner than later.
