Our Ruston, LA customers often have questions about when to replace their air conditioners. Knowing the warning signs that the air conditioner may be reaching the end of its life is useful for making decisions about AC replacement. If you have noticed increased energy bills, uneven cooling in the house, or frequent repair issues, problems with the condenser, it may be time for an upgrade.
It’s also worth considering an upgrade in these situations:
- Equipment age – The age of your existing air conditioning system can influence decision making about replacement. Generally, an AC system that is more than eight to ten years old will need to be replaced.
- Repair cost – In some cases, a quick fix can get a malfunctioning air conditioner working. However, if the repair cost is half the cost of a new system, replacement is the more cost-effective solution in the long term.
- Expiring warranty – Before having your air conditioning system repaired, check the warranty terms, because repairs often fall under the warranty. If your warranty has expired, replacement may be more cost effective.
Upgrading your air conditioner offers benefits for comfort and energy efficiency. Newer systems are more energy efficient, which can decrease cooling costs. Replacing an older, inefficient unit also improves comfort, even on the hottest days of the year.
