When Should You Replace Your Air Conditioning System Published on May 24, 2017 It’s almost summertime and that means cooling season. If you turn on your air conditioner and are greeted with warm air being dispensed, weird noises, or worse, nothing at all, you have to make a decision: repair or replace? If you’re not sure when to bite the bullet and replace your air conditioning equipment, check out these indicators that it’s time to upgrade to a newer, more efficient system. Old Age If your air conditioning system is over 10 years old, it’s time to start thinking about upgrading to a new, more energy efficient system. Not only will a new A/C system help keep you cool and comfortable during the high temperatures, it can also help save you money on your cooling bills. High Repair Costs If you are continuously repairing your air conditioner and your repair bills are getting high, it’s probably a good time to talk about upgrading. With financing from Hammond Plumbing, you can get a new A/C system for a monthly cost that accommodates your budget. Less Efficient If your energy bills are increasing or your A/C system is not cooling your home like it used to, these can be indicators of decreasing efficiency. Yearly maintenance helps keep your air conditioner efficient, but if your system continues to provide your home with poor comfort and use more energy than normal, it may be time to consider upgrading.
