When is it Time to Replace Your Air Conditioner?

If you’re wondering if it’s time to replace your central air, consider that they typically last 10 to perhaps 20 years. If you’re A/C unit is approaching that ten-year mark then it’s time to consider installing a new air conditioner. Here are a few conditions that tip the balance towards a new HVAC system.

  • Is the existing unit actually keeping your house or another type of building cool?
  • Has it needed several repairs over the last few years?
  • Is it too noisy, or has it recently become noisier?
  • Does it run excessively or frequently cycle on and off?
  • Is a suitable replacement refrigerant still available?
  • How old is your unit? Units over 10 years old are hard to find parts and are often more expensive to repair due to the parts not being manufactured any longer.
  • Are your electricity bills too expensive? Upgrading your HVAC system to a new High Energy Efficient system can save you up to 50% on your monthly energy bills

Newer equipment has higher SEER ratings (seasonal energy efficiency rating) than equipment that was installed even one year ago, in the range of 14 to 20 SEER. If your existing A/C is 13 SEER or lower, just by changing to a standard new comfort system you’ll see additional benefits in your electricity bill savings.
