When to Replace Your Air Conditioner

When an air conditioner does not function properly, we tend to think of repairing it.Repairing may seem to be the most affordable solution, but it might not be the best choice because eventually repairing costs can be more than replacing it. You need to replace your air conditioner when you see one or more of the signs mentioned below:

  • Repairing cost nearing 50% of the air conditioner value: When the cost of repairs approaches 50% of the value of your heating or cooling system, it is generally time to replace the system.
  • 12 years running: Many tend to think that air conditioning can run for decades and the manufacturer promises so. However, most air conditioners are not designed to last more than roughly 10 years. So, if your air conditioner is aging,better replace it.Replacing an aging and worn out air conditioner can actually have a number of benefits including increased energy efficiency, improved indoor air quality, and reduced carbon emissions.
  • Need for frequent repairs: If an air conditioner is showing need for frequent repair especially when those repairs get progressively more expensive, it is a sign that it is time for a replacement. Though it may cost more money for new air conditioning installation upfront, it saves money by eliminating the need for continuously costly repair.
  • Temperature inconsistencies:An air conditioner with temperature inconsistencies even after repaircan beanother sign for replacement.
