How to Tell if You Need Air Conditioner Replacement
Are you starting to think you need air conditioner replacement? In many cases, air conditioner replacement can save you hundreds over the long run thanks to improved energy efficiency and more consistent operation. That said, air conditioner replacement is still a fairly substantial investment. Before you commit, ask yourself the following questions:
How old is your air conditioner?
Even the best air conditioners on the market have a limited lifespan – they usually last about 10 to 15 years before quitting (it is possible to eke a few more years out of yours provided you keep up with your air conditioner inspections). If your air conditioner is more than 10 years old and is starting to need frequent or increasingly expensive repairs, it is usually a better idea to invest in air conditioner replacement, which will save you money in the long run.
How often do you need AC repair, and how much are the bills?
One of the surest ways to tell if you need air conditioner replacement is to think about your air conditioner repairs over the last few years. Have you needed AC repair more than three times in one season? Are the repairs going from simple hundred dollar jobs to more complicated (and expensive) ones? If your repair costs are going up, it usually means that your air conditioner’s lifespan is going down – if you act soon, you can potentially save a lot of money with air conditioner replacement.
What was the original SEER?
If your air conditioner was installed in the 90s or even early 2000s, it probably has a SEER of 7 – 12. These days, the MINIMUM SEER is 13, and most air conditioners go much higher than that! Air conditioners with a higher SEER have less of an environmental impact and cost less to run than older, lower SEER air conditioners. If you have an inefficient air conditioner, upgrading it with a more efficient air conditioner will save you a lot of money in the long run!
