Should I Consider New AC For My Home?

Once the summer months return, most of us look forward to fun in the sun and enjoyable outdoor activities. And, we look forward to retreating to the comfort of an air-conditioned home when the summer heat gets too intense. If your air conditioning system isn’t working properly, though, it can cause some stress and discomfort.

If you’ve been dealing with an air conditioning system that isn’t working its best, you may be wondering if it’s worth continuing to repair it, or if maybe it’s time for a replacement. In this article, we’ll discuss some of the factors that homeowners should consider when thinking about new air conditioning and how Home Climates can help. Keep reading to learn more!

Signs You May Need New Air Conditioning

Replacing your air conditioning system is a significant investment, and it’s essential to make an informed decision. While repairs might seem like an economical choice, they can add up, making a new system the more cost-effective option in the long run. Consider these factors:

  • Age of System: Most air conditioning systems have a lifespan of about 10-15 years. If yours is approaching or has surpassed this range, it’s time to consider upgrading to a more efficient model.
  • Frequency of Repairs: Occasional maintenance is expected, but if you’re calling for repairs multiple times a year, it’s a sign that your system is failing, and replacement may be more economical.
  • Higher than Normal Utility Bills: An increase in your energy bills could indicate that your air conditioning system is losing efficiency. Newer models are designed to provide much better energy efficiency than systems just 10 years older.
  • Warranty Status: Check if your system is still under warranty. If it’s expired, future repairs will be out-of-pocket, which can quickly become more expensive than a new system.
  • Poor or Inconsistent Cooling: If some rooms are too hot while others are too cold, or if the system struggles to maintain a comfortable temperature, it may be time for a system that can evenly and effectively cool your space. Your current system may be the wrong size for your home, or your ductwork could be inadequate.

By considering these factors, you can make a more informed decision about whether to repair or replace your air conditioning system. A new, energy-efficient model can provide long-term savings and improve your home’s comfort.
