The weather is heating up, which means you can expect to use your air conditioner more and more in the months ahead. This durable system may have been reliable thus far, but it’s getting older, and no amount of maintenance can stop it from breaking down one day and costing a lot of money to fix. Why not replace your air conditioner before it fails?
Most manufacturers and technicians recommend replacing a central air conditioner after about 10-15 years, especially if you’ve started to notice problems. It’s worth it to avoid some of the problems associated with older units and to get a new high-efficiency system that can help you save all summer long and for years to come.
- Your older air conditioner uses a lot of energy. New air conditioners are built for energy efficiency. If you get a system with a high enough SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) and keep it properly maintained, you might see your energy bills drop significantly. After 10-15 years, no amount of maintenance can restore energy efficiency to your system, and replacement becomes your best option if you want to conserve environmental resources.
- You may be paying more to keep it around. High energy bills aren’t the only issues when it comes to the cost of an older air conditioner. If you find yourself paying for repairs far too frequently, a brand new system may very well be worth it. Replacing a system piece by piece ends up costing more than replacing the whole thing at once.
- You don’t want a sudden breakdown when you really need AC. An older worn-down air conditioner is more likely to break down on an extremely hot day, when it’s working the hardest and you need it the most. If you know your older air conditioner is bound to fail soon, it’s a good idea to replace it before this point, in order to beat the heat.
