Purchasing a new
air conditioning system is a big investment so it’s not uncommon for homeowners to want
to delay the process. However, while you may be able to squeeze some life
out of your AC for a little while, it’s important to know when it’s
time to throw in the towel. Here’s how you can determine when it’s
time to invest in a new air conditioner:
If you can’t remember how old you air conditioner is, it’s
probably time to replace it. The average air conditioner can last between
10 and 15 years when properly maintained. After this span, air conditioners
will typically begin to malfunction more often. If you’ve noticed
your air conditioner has been malfunctioning frequently and is nearly
10 or more years old, consider investing in a new system. While it may
seem costly now, a new air conditioning system will be energy efficient
and can save you money on your electricity bills in the long run.
Temperature inconsistencies occur for a variety of reasons. Your air conditioning
system may be malfunctioning due to poor insulation, or perhaps there
are faults in the ductwork. Whatever the reason, if you’re experiencing
temperature inconsistencies in your home, it may be time to invest in
a new system. Temperature inconsistencies are almost always indicative
of a bigger issue with your AC, so it is great to have an experienced
technician take a look at your system.
Like all appliances, your air conditioning system will need some
routine maintenance from time to time. However, if your AC is in constant need of
repairs, consider purchasing a new system. Frequent repairs can add up over time,
so investing in a new AC could save you money.
