Spring is an ideal time to arrange to have an aging air conditioner replaced. You’ll get a jump on the hotter weather of the summer, and you’ll be able to take advantage of the freer schedules of most HVAC technicians. You can take the time you need to decide on the right type of new system for your needs and your budget, and then arrange with the professional installers for a convenient time to put the new unit in place.
But is my system really ready to be replaced?
Check on how many years the air conditioner has been in operation. More than 10? More than 15? In either case, yes it’s probably ready for a replacement, even if it doesn’t appear to have any serious issues affecting it. If you’ve noticed any decline in operation, or if your AC bills have risen over the last summer, then you absolutely should have the system replaced.
High-efficiency air conditioners
The reason that we advise you to swap out an old air conditioner with a new one is because you can take advantage of the huge benefits of newer systems with higher energy efficiency ratings. Air conditioning technology continues to advance, and during the past decade new systems have come out with tremendous leaps in how efficiently they convert energy to cooling. Thanks to variable-speed fans and variable-speed compressors, these new ACs can modulate their work levels based on the comfort needs of a home. Instead of always running at top power, they will often drop down to lower power consumption. Your home will stay cool, but the air conditioner will work much less!
