You’ve been through a lot together, you and your A/C. You may remember the day it first turned on or the time you returned home from vacation to be greeted by a cool, refreshing air. It’s been more than a few summers that your A/C has kept you comfortable. But we know all good things must come to an end. How do you know when it’s time to close the door on the life of your A/C and consider a replacement? The experts at Hal Mechanical can help you determine if a new A/C system is the right move for you.
What is Considered an Old AC System?
Unlike a fine wine, your A/C does not get better with age. Let’s face it, some things are just too old to best serve their purpose. Would you take your grandma to prom? Of course not! It’s not fair to expect your excessively aging A/C system to perform as it did in its youth. How old is your A/C? 10 – 15 years is a long time, especially for an air conditioner. If you have kept your A/C in good condition your A/C could last that long. But after about 10 -15 years you might want to consider getting a new air conditioner before it starts causing you problems.
High Electric Bill
You know the “all too familiar” feeling of opening your power bill during the summer months to be greeted with a punch in the teeth. High energy bills can be a good indicator that it’s time to upgrade your A/C system. An old A/C system has to work harder to cool your home. This often means that it is running for longer periods of time and using more energy in the process. A new energy efficient system can help significantly reduce your energy bill and better maintain the desired environment inside your home.
Air Conditioner Not Working Properly
An aging A/C system often works harder to cool your house. You may notice odd odors, or strange loud noises coming from your air conditioner. Your system may even blow warm air. There are many ways to “troubleshoot” the numerous possible issues that contribute to a less than optimal A/C system. Maybe you have said, “This repair just needs to get me through the hot time of the year”. If you find yourself reaching out to an A/C repairman year after year, it could be time to consider looking into a new A/C system altogether.
