As spring and summer bring warmer weather, now is an important time to
think about your air conditioner. Most air conditioning systems are designed
to last for ten to fifteen years, but begin to experience more frequent
cooling problems as they near their full life expectancy. If you have
been struggling to cool your home with an outdated or failing air conditioning
system, it’s time to consider the benefits you could gain through
AC replacement with a newer, more efficient cooling solution.
One of the most common reasons that homeowners opt for AC replacement is
to eliminate the
problems associated with a failing air conditioning system. While minor repairs may be needed from time to time, it’s important
to consider the additive cost of even small repairs that can grow over
time. As your AC reaches the end of its functional lifetime, an increasing
number of components will begin to fail in succession; if you find yourself
calling your AC service frequently or feel that you have made many more
repairs to your AC system over the past one to two years when compared
with the several years before that time, it’s definitely a good
time to consider AC replacement. A newer system will start with a completely
clean slate in terms of parts and maintenance, providing you with greater
peace of mind through more reliable cooling without worry that components
will wear out in the near future due to age.
AC replacement lets you enjoy the benefits associated with greater cooling
efficiency in two major ways. First, HVAC systems naturally lose efficiency
with age, as components become worn and dirty. While regular seasonal
maintenance is the very best way to stay on top of these factors, age
can still play a role in dropping efficiency that can no longer be completely
restored through seasonal tune-ups. AC replacement will eliminate this
issue by replacing an old system with a new one, allowing you to take
full advantage of the greatest efficiency the system you purchase is capable
of achieving. Second, advances in HVAC technology happen fairly quickly,
while changes in federal regulations also increase the minimum efficiency
required for newly-manufactured equipment every several years as well.
Opting for AC replacement allows you to increase the baseline efficiency
of your cooling system by replacing an older model with new technology
capable of reducing energy costs and delivering better cooling simply
by virtue of its design. Alternatively, you may want to consider replacing
your current cooling system with a different type of air conditioner altogether,
such as installing a heat pump in place of a traditional air conditioner
for an even lower home energy and carbon footprint.
