3 Signs It's Time To Replace Your Old A/C
If you're like most Atlanta homeowners, you and your family depend on your air conditioning system for a great deal of the comfort you enjoy in your home, especially during the summer, but as with all things, your home's A/C is going to become less and less effective over time until it breaks down altogether. While many homeowners are content to let their old air conditioning systems run until they can't anymore, it is far more effective to be aware of the warning signs that your system is nearing replacement age and take steps to ensure you and your family aren't stuck without a working A/C for a minute longer than is necessary.
To help you get a better idea of what these warning signs are so you have the forewarning you need, our team of skilled A/C replacement professionals has taken the time to put together this short list. If you notice any of these signs with your system, give your local A/C company pros a call today and let us help you schedule your replacement service.
Your System Is Older Than 10 Years
If they are properly maintained, most air conditioning systems have an average lifespan of between 10 and 15 years, but if you haven't kept up with maintenance in that time, your system might not make it to that age and not without issue. Suppose your air conditioning system is older than ten years, and you notice that more and more things seem to be going wrong with it, or it just isn't able to perform its job like it once did. In that case, it might be time to start considering a new A/C replacement and finding a convenient time to have the job completed.
More Frequent Breakdowns
While all air conditioning systems experience their fair share of problems from time to time, if you notice that your system seems to be breaking down more and more frequently as of late, needing new parts and repairs on a nearly constant basis, it might be a better option to just go ahead and invest in a new A/C replacement as opposed to pouring more money into an older unit. The money you're spending on repairs is money that could quickly go into getting your new unit installed, and best of all, your new system isn't going to need repairs every month to keep your home cool.
Your System Is Inefficient
It's not unusual for energy bills to go up during the summer months while your air conditioning system is trying to cool your home, but if your energy bills seem to be getting higher and higher and your usage isn't changing, it could be a sign that your system needs replacement. As time goes on, your home's A/C will only start running less and less efficiently, which can cost you a great deal in the form of additional energy costs at the end of the month. If your cooling costs are eating you out of house and home, give our team of skilled technicians a call today and let us help you start looking for the new unit you need for convenient cooling throughout your home.
