It is fairly important to have air conditioners in a home. When the summers get blistering hot, we need these devices to ensure the inside of our homes are cool and comfortable. A good quality air conditioner that is routinely maintained and well-cared for can last for about 20 years. Though many homeowners do not realize, the older air conditioner units, is costing you more than you think even if they are seemingly operating correctly. How the older air conditioners are impacting your costs is what we at Air Supply Air Conditioning & Heating would like to share today.
Frequent AC Repairs
On an old unit, repair costs quickly add up. The older an air conditioner is, the more repairs they require through the natural wear and tear as well as use. With the excessive repair costs, most homeowners would find they are spending enough money to buy a new unit. Since experts say that that if the repairs costs are 50% or more of a unit after it is 10 years it is in your better interest to invest in a new one. You can feel rest assured that it will not need repairs for a while, and should it need repair, the warranty should cover the costs with a new unit. You can keep it in good condition through annual tune-up and regular maintenance. In the long run, investing in a new air conditioner saves you money over time.
Abnormally High Energy Utility Bill
Being modern marvels, today’s air conditioners are highly efficient. Stemming from the low efficiency of the 1970s and 1980s, the demand for a better energy efficiency in appliance. Over time, the AC technology continues its growth to improve. From a poor cooling efficiency, resulting in utility bills that are twice as high. You can slice your cooling costs by almost half in many instances by installing a new air conditioner.
