We rely on our air conditioning units to keep us cool each summer — but how do you know when it’s to swap out your old unit and replace it with a new one? Here are a few telltale signs that you will want to look out for.
Signs You Need to Replace Your A/C Unit:
- It is Several Years Old – If your air conditioner is over ten years old, you may want to consider replacing it. After about ten years, there will be higher efficiency units available that will help you save significant amounts of money on your monthly cooling bills.
- You Find Yourself In Need of Frequent Repairs – If your air conditioning unit is in need of frequent repairs, it might be time for a replacement. Repair costs can add up over time and if you find yourself having to make frequent repairs, an upgrade can save you money in the long run.
- Your Energy Bills Are Going Up – Are your home cooling bills higher than they were last year? Older air conditioning units, or ones that don’t work as efficiently, will leave you with a higher energy bill. If your bills are skyrocketing, it might be time to upgrade to an Energy Star unit.
- Your Current Unit Is Very Noisy – If your air conditioning duct system is not the right size for your home needs, it may be noisy. Upgrading to the right sized unit will help you cool your home more efficiently.
