If you are having problems with your air conditioning system, you may be wondering if it is time for an air conditioning replacement. Many times keeping your air conditioner well maintained will help you to be able to keep your system running smoothly with a few minor repairs. But how do you tell when it is time for a complete replacement? Here are 4 tips to determine if you need an air conditioning replacement.
- Your Air Conditioner Is No Longer Running Efficiently. If you are constantly having problems with your air conditioner blowing warm or insufficient air, you may need a new air conditioner to completely fix the problem. After an air conditioner reaches its full lifespan, its efficiency is reduced, and without replacement, it will not run as effectively as it should.
- It Needs Repairs Often. If the components of your air conditioner continue to need repairs, it may be time to replace your air conditioner. Not only do the costs of continuous repairs add up, but an air conditioner that needs repairing also does not run as well as a working system. You will find that the ability of a new air conditioner to quickly cool your home and the reduction of repairs will offset the cost of an air conditioning replacement.
- Your Energy Bills Continue to Grow. If you notice your monthly energy bills continue to increase, your air conditioner could be the culprit. As your air conditioning system loses its effectiveness and it grows less efficient, it will require more energy to keep your home cool. This will result in your monthly bills going up.
- Your Air Conditioner is More Than 10 Years Old. The average lifespan of an air conditioner is 10 years. If your system is older than 10 years, you may want to consider an air conditioning replacement. This will ensure you have an efficient air conditioner that won’t suddenly break down.
