When to Replace Air Conditioner Systems
It can be tough to understand precisely when to get a new air conditioner. Below are a few clues that it’s time to start preparing for a new one.
- Monthly utility expenses are going up. As your air conditioner ages, it ends up being less efficient. Eventually it needs too much time or power to keep things cool.
- Your home feels muggy or humid. An inefficient air conditioner has a harder time keeping moisture levels in check. You may notice rooms feel muggy or inconsistently cooled.
- The air conditioner is running constantly. It’s natural for your air conditioner to run more frequently as the temperature rises. However, constant heavy use increases wear and tear, shortening the equipment’s life span and making energy bills more costly.
- Your air conditioner is outdated. With regular upkeep, air conditioners can last 15 years or longer. That being said, getting a new air conditioner even at 10 years old could save 20-40% on cooling costs, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
- You’re investing a lot on air conditioning repair service. We recommend complete replacement if repairs are becoming more likely and/or expensive.
- Your AC unit uses R-22 refrigerant. This refrigerant is out of production because of its damaging impacts on the ozone layer. Fixing a refrigerant leak on models with R-22 coolant is very costly as the remaining supply is only available in limited, recycled supplies.
