In the hottest months of the year, you never want to be stuck without an air conditioner to cool your home. But how do you know when it is time to replace your current air conditioner or continue to have it repaired? If your AC is showing any of these telltale signs, it’s probably time to upgrade to a new home comfort system.
Your Air Conditioner Is 10 Years or Older
The average lifespan of an air conditioning unit is 10 to 15 years depending on how well the unit has been maintained. If your unit is 10 years or older, and you have any doubt that you might need to replace your unit, it is likely a better option (for your comfort and your wallet) time to replace the unit.
Your Unit Needs Frequent Repairs
When an air conditioner is nearing the end of its lifespan it will typically need more and more repairs. If your current unit is requiring more repairs than normal, it may be time to replace your unit with a new model. As a homeowner, you can save money in the long run by replacing your older unit that needs frequent repairs with a new, energy-efficient unit that runs properly with little maintenance.
Your Energy Bills Are Rising Monthly
As an air conditioner gets older, it sometimes has to work harder to keep your home a comfortable temperature. When your unit has to work harder, it will use more energy which can have a negative effect on your monthly energy bills. If your monthly energy bills are rising month after month, it may be time to replace your air conditioner.
