Your A/C system is chugging away through another the U.S. summer and then the cool air stops blowing. You call an AC expert to come to your home and take a look and the next thing you know you’re going to have to pay a pretty penny for the repair. So when do you call it a day and just upgrade your current A/C equipment?
Obviously the older the system the more it’s likely to malfunction and lose efficiency. Air conditioners over eight years old are actually much less efficient than the current energy-efficient equipment available today. Furthermore, if your system is more than 15 years old, odds are you are going to put in more money over time to keep it running than if you just purchased a new, energy-efficient A/C system.
To piggyback on the above theme, at some point it’s going to cost more to invest in new parts and fix issues than it would to just purchase a new air conditioner. Another thing to remember is R-22, the common refrigerant for old A/C equipment, is being withdrawn from the market for the safety of the environment. If your air conditioning system was produced before 2010, you will soon see a jump in the fee for your refrigerant until you replace your system.
Engineering is continuously improving and with that comes more energy-efficient A/C systems. New systems tend to cost less to operate because they are able to cool the home more efficiently, saving you money on your energy bills – and who doesn’t enjoy that?
