Your home’s air conditioner plays an important role in regulating indoor temperatures and keeping everyone comfortable. Over time, the air conditioner becomes worn out and starts to show signs it needs to be replaced. Here are three reasons you may need to have a new air conditioner installed.
1.The unit is more than 15 years old.
An A/C system is built to last 10 to 15 years, after which it becomes inefficient and requires frequent — and expensive — repairs (see reasons 2 and 3). In addition, because technology advances so fast, old A/C systems may not be up to code with federal efficiency standards.
2. Frequent (and expensive) repairs.
If you’ve been diligent in maintaining your home’s A/C system, but now you’re facing expensive repairs coming one after another, you may end up paying less to have a new system installed. Reach out to Blue Apple Electric to learn more about making a wise investment into a new A/C system.
3. Inefficient cooling.
If the A/C unit is not as efficient as it used to be and you’ve noticed a steady increase in energy consumption over time, then you may need to purchase a new system.
4. The Benefits of Installing a New A/C
Though you’ll have to make an upfront payment to purchase a new A/C unit, the benefits will far outweigh the costs.
5. Significant cost savings over time.
A modern A/C system is exponentially more efficient than older systems over a decade old. You’ll likely see lower monthly utility costs with improved functionality — a clear win-win!
A/C brands are required to develop systems that meet minimum requirements for environmental friendliness. Be sure to choose ENERGY Star rated systems for maximum efficiency and minimal carbon footprint.
7. Improved indoor air quality.
A new A/C system equipped with clean parts will do a better job of keeping indoor air clean and free of harmful pollutants.
8. Spring TIme Is The Best Time to Replace Your A/C
The best time to replace the A/C is when you aren’t using it, such as early spring. We encourage homeowners to reach out to Blue Apple Electric for A/C recommendations and professional installation.
