If so, it’s time for an upgrade. We typically recommend that our customers upgrade their older AC systems once they reach about 10-15 years of age, depending on the system and the level of maintenance it has received over the years. This is a standard manufacturer’s recommendation and the average for systems in this country.
After about 10-15 years, air conditioners start to get very inefficient. The parts wear down, requiring more energy to run with every cycle. And your bills begin to reflect this. Not only are you using more of the earth’s resources, but you’re also paying way more than you have to. The monthly payment involved with installing and running a new system should make a noticeable difference.
Repairs Are Not Always Worth It
Getting repairs for an older AC system can add up. There might be small electrical parts you always have to replace or the refrigerant line might spring a new leak every now and then. And eventually, a larger part of the system will break as well.
If you replace a major component of your air conditioning system, you’re unlikely to be able to find the exact same part in good condition. A mismatched air conditioner has trouble running smoothly. And once one part breaks, the others are likely to follow eventually.
Your New System Will Make a Difference
Most likely, when you install your new air conditioning system, you’ll notice the difference right away! Lower bills are sure to follow, even with regular use. And, of course, you’ll feel the difference if your AC system was not running smoothly before. With variable speed settings, your home’s temperature stays within one or two degrees of the thermostat settings, so keep that in mind when picking out a new system.
