Has your AC unit been breaking down a lot in the past year? Are you wondering if it is now time to replace it? One of the most reliable ways to tell if you should repair or replace your AC unit is to go by its age. Generally speaking, if it’s between 10 and 15 years old, then the time to replace it has come.
However, if you’d like a true diagnosis before you pull the plug, give our technicians at Ambient Edge a call. We can diagnose the problem in no time and confirm whether you should repair or replace your AC unit. Give us a call at (888) 240-8283 to schedule an appointment with one of the licensed members of our team.
Sometimes, one of the best reasons to replace your AC unit, rather than repair it, is to improve the energy efficiency of your unit. Technology is improving all the time. As a result, you can certainly improve the energy output of your unit by investing in a new one. Not only is this better for the environment, but it’s also better for your energy bills!
An AC unit is like a car in that, if you’re dumping as much money into repairing the thing as you would in monthly payments for a new one, then it’s time for an upgrade. As reliable as your old system may have been when you first purchased it, and as expensive as it might have been when it was still a new technology, the fact of the matter is that it is past its prime and needs retiring.
And it’s not always death by a thousand cuts either. If something goes wrong that requires thousands of dollars to fix, why invest that kind of cash in an older machine that doesn’t have many years left as it is? Put that money into a new, more energy-efficient device, and enjoy the years wherein you won’t have to pay for continuous repairs.
Another way to tell whether it’s time to replace your AC unit is if you see your energy bills continuing to climb every month, and you can’t think of a valid reason why. Chances are good that one of your appliances – probably your AC, if it’s the warmer months – is using more energy than it would otherwise need to in order to perform the same functions.
So, while replacing the unit may cost a bit upfront, it will save you hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of dollars in the future on your improved utility bills!
Struggling AC Unit
As the world warms up with climate change, you may find that older air conditioners have difficulty keeping your house as cool as they once used to. This is because most homes built before the year 2000 do not have the insulation necessary to keep the house cool for as long as it now needs to. As a result, your AC unit now has to do extra work to cool the house down and run constantly when it wasn’t before.
Replacing your AC unit means you will be investing in a unit that has the improved technology to handle the constant warmer temperatures, especially if you live in an area where the weather is warm year-round.
