Your air conditioner is chugging away through another the U.S. summer and all of sudden the cold air stops coming out. You call an air conditioner professional to come out to evaluate the problem and by the time it’s all said and done you’re going to have to pay a steep price for the repair. So when should you surrender and just upgrade your current AC equipment?
Clearly the older your system gets, the more it’s likely to breakdown and lose efficiency. Air conditioning systems over eight years old are actually much less efficient than the current energy-efficient systems available today. But if your air conditioner is more than 14 years old, you are likely to invest more money over time to keep it functioning than if you just invested in a new, energy-efficient air conditioning system.
To keep on topic with the statement above, eventually it’s going to start costing more to replace parts and mend issues than it would to just purchase a new air conditioning system. Another thing to note is R-22, the common refrigerant for old cooling equipment, is being discontinued for the safety of the environment. If your air conditioning system was assembled before 2010, you will soon see a large increase in the fee for your refrigerant until you replace your system.
Science is always improving and with that comes more energy-efficient air conditioning equipment. New systems tend to cost less to operate because they are able to cool the home more efficiently, saving you money on your cooling bills – and who doesn’t want that?
