Should You Repair or Replace Your Air Conditioner?
Many homeowners with aging air conditioning systems are weighing the benefits of repairing and maintaining their older unit versus purchasing a newer, more reliable system.
The old saying “if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it.” makes sense for a lot things around the home, but for energy intensive systems like air conditioners, putting off a purchasing a new cooling system could be costing you more in the long run.
Here are a few reasons to consider replacing your old air conditioner.
1. Efficiency. The EPA suggest that homeowners replace their air conditioner if it’s beyond 10 years old. The reason is new air conditioners are much more efficient that system installed over a decade ago. How much can you expect to save on your energy bill? With a newer, high efficiency system you could save up to 56% on your cooling costs.
2. Lower maintenance costs. If your air conditioner is in need of regular repairs and your energy costs are rising as it has become worn out and less efficient that money may be better spent on upgrading to a new air conditioner.
3. It’s LOUD! Newer air conditioners operate at variable-speeds to cool your home more quietly in most situations.
