Replacing your old air conditioner with a newer model is more cost-effective than just paying for repairs. Putting up with a system that is old and not performing well costs you money. Here are just a few reasons why it may be time to update your A/C:
The Right Size for the Job
Like Goldilocks searching for just the right-sized bed, your A/C needs to be the just the right size to work efficiently. If it’s too small, it won’t be powerful enough to cool your home, and if it’s too big, it can’t reduce the humidity in your house. It will end up costing you more for less than desirable results.
Get Some Energy
If your cooling system is over ten years old, it’s not as energy efficient as the current models. You can calculate the best energy efficiency rating for your home at energy.gov. Swapping out an old system can keep your home at a pleasant temperature and help reduce your energy bills.
Cold Hard Cash
If you’ve outlasted the shelf-life on your old air conditioner, replacing it with a new one will save you more in the long run. How often does it have to be repaired? Is it operating properly? If you are paying to run it, but your home isn’t cool and comfortable, you’re throwing your dollars away. Think of upgrading as a long-term investment; you are saving yourself from paying for expensive breakdowns, and your new air conditioner won’t need to be replaced for another 10-15 years!
