When to Get a New AC Unit

Your home’s air conditioner is something you rely on throughout the summer. It helps to keep temperatures cool and comfortable while also pulling out excess moisture from the air that makes you uncomfortable. AC units are also important because they minimize the risk of mold and mildew growth in constantly humid environments. There will be a time that you will need to replace your home’s air conditioner. When it comes to AC replacement in Weatherford, TX, our team can be there to support you.

Reasons to Replace Your AC System

AC units are valuable assets. That means that you need to maintain them well over their lifetime to get as much out of them as you can. Eventually, though, it may be time to replace the AC unit with a new one. Here are a few reasons why you may need to do that.

Ongoing problems

In some situations, the repairs to the existing AC unit may become constant. While repairs may last for a while, there are often times when repairing the existing unit is simply no longer sensible because it will need repairs on a frequent basis it keep it going. The better option in these cases is to replace instead of repairing the air conditioner.

It’s older and not reliable

Most air conditioners can last 15 to 20 years, sometimes longer with good maintenance and upkeep. Yet, over time, they may become unreliable. You may find that they do not work as well, or they may cut out on you frequently. If you are starting to notice problems with your air conditioner and repairs are expensive, it may be best to consider a replacement. If your system is older but is still running well, on the other hand, it may be possible to put off repairs for some time. Be sure to plan ahead for a replacement if your system is more than 15 years old.

High costs

Older models are more expensive to operate. Technology has improved significantly in the last decade. If your system is older than this, upgrading it to lower your costs may make sense. Consider a few things:

  • If your existing system is not working at all, replace it with a high ENERGY STAR-rated air conditioner to save the most money on your cooling costs.
  • If your existing system is operational, but your costs are growing rapidly, it may be time to consider the replacement of the system.

Replacing your existing system with a more energy efficient model helps to reduce your energy costs. It also helps to reduce your carbon footprint.

Your home isn’t comfortable

If your system just is not providing enough comfort to your home, it may not be big enough or efficient enough to work well for you. This is also an indication that now may be the right time to replace it with a new model. Our experts can help you upgrade when necessary.
