As hard as it may be to believe, summertime is already upon us once again. You may then want to take a moment to consider whether or not your air conditioner needs to be replaced. Will it be able to keep your home comfortable throughout the coming heat waves? If you are unsure whether it is time to replace your air conditioner, here are a few of the ways you can tell.
It Requires Expensive Repairs
Over time, your air conditioner may break down and require repairs. However, at some point, you will have to decide whether putting more money into an old AC unit is worth it. If you have had costly repairs in recent years, or if your air conditioner is currently in need of repairs, you will want to take a moment to consider if it would be in your best interest to just replace your air conditioner rather than continue to put money into it.
It is Not Keeping You Comfortable
An easy way to tell that your AC is in need of replacing is if it is not doing enough to keep you and your family comfortable. If it is having struggles cooling your home, these problems will only get worse this summer, so you may want to consider replacement now in order to ensure your comfort in the coming months.
It is More Than 10 Years Old
According to Energy Star, you should consider replacing your air conditioner if it is more than ten years old. Once your air conditioner has reached this age, it won’t run as efficiently as it once did. Replacing it with a more energy-efficient model could then save you as much as 20% on your cooling bills this summer.
