If you are in an area that has a very hot summer and you want to stay comfortable you need to have an air conditioning unit that works well and is efficient. The summer seems to be the season that most people are contemplating a new unit versus making repairs to keep their current unit running properly. You don’t want to have your unit go out in the summer since that is in fact the hottest time of the year, so doing some research to help you plan the new installation can save you days of sweating and suffering in the heat. There are many times that simple air conditioning repair is sufficient but there are several signs that it is time to upgrade.
Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning list signs you need to upgrade to a new AC unit this summer.
How Old is The AC Unit: This is a great question. Although most people don’t check often, it is good to know how old the unit is to know what the life expectancy should be. There is a window of time that an AC unit is intended to run properly and after that time is up, it will most likely give out. If you look over the paperwork on the unit that you have and notice that it is over 10 years old this may be the best time to upgrade. Getting a new unit before the old one dies out is a great way to stay cool in the summer.
AC Repairs Are Needed Too Often: Just like anything else your air conditioning unit will need to have repairs and maintenance done to it on a regular basis to ensure that it is working in top shape. Although the routine inspections are important and worth the cost you have to outweigh how often you are in need of repairs. Just like changing the oil on a car or replacing a filter, your AC unit will over time need some repairs. If the repairs are coming too often and are costing too much money you may want to upgrade to a newer unit.
Energy Bill Has Gone Up: The air conditioning unit uses more energy than any other appliance in your home. The AC uses more energy in the summer to help keep the home cool and comfortable. If you start to notice a big jump in the cost of your energy bill you want to look into the AC unit. It may be working but not efficiently. This can be costing you money every month. The cost of replacing the unit may be more up front but in the long run a more energy efficient unit will save you money in the long run and you will be helping to conserve energy as well.
