Is Your AC Ready for Retirement?

Deciding whether your AC is ready to be replaced or not can be a tricky thing. Customers want someone to give them a yes or no answer, and while sometimes it’s that simple, many other times your AC will still be working when it should be replaced.

This blog post is going to center on some of the main reasons why you should invest in air conditioning replacement in Gloucester County, NJ. They’re not definitive answers, and often you’ll still be wondering if your working AC should really be replaced, but they can hopefully point you in the right direction.

Just remember that a new AC unit will work more efficiently and have a lower chance of breaking down than an old and outdated one. This can be huge for a busy family that’s trying to save money in the next 10-15 years.

Your System Has Run Into Frequent Problems

An air conditioner that’s frequently having problems or breaking down is going to be a hassle. We’re not just talking for your everyday life and budget, but for your home comfort too.

Frequent problems are usually the result of something not working correctly in your AC. Maybe it wasn’t sized correctly, or perhaps it’s got a botched part that’s constantly failing, but when a technician inspects it, it looks fine.

The only true way to address a frequently problematic air conditioner is by replacing it with an entirely new one that works properly.

Your Home Isn’t Comfortable Anymore

Remember, your air conditioner is designed to keep your home comfortable from summer heat. If it doesn’t, then it’s missing the most vital function of it and it should be replaced by one that can.

For the amount of electrical energy an air conditioner uses, it would be a huge shame for it to be unsatisfying when it runs. Be sure to replace it with one that keeps you happy.

High Energy Bills and Inefficiency

This is a big one. As an air conditioner reaches the end of its lifespan, it can start to use more electricity, especially when compared to newer and more efficient systems. And without maintenance, an air conditioner loses on average 5% of its efficiency each year compounding. This means that you could gain a lot of efficiency and save money monthly by upgrading your AC.

It’s Nearing the End of Its Lifespan

After all we’ve talked about today, should you really replace an air conditioner that’s at the end of its 10-15 year lifespan, even if it’s still working? The answer is yes, but let us explain.

All of the components in your air conditioner have a general lifespan. This is how long they’re designed to last before they falter. Unfortunately, every manufactured mechanical product has this, and it’s just a reality of mass production. Replacing components before they fail is a vital aspect of staying ahead of problems.

So, even if your AC is still working just fine, it likely won’t as it goes beyond its expected lifespan. The chances of seeing problems rise dramatically and you’ll likely regret staying with the system in the near future.
