Reasons to Upgrade Your AC
Upgrading your air conditioner isn’t something you do on a regular basis, and for good reason. Not only is an AC system expensive, but a new unit is expected to last for at least a decade. Some newer units are projected to last up to 15 years with proper maintenance. In the life of a homeowner, trips to price replacement units are rare.
Yet there are still a lot of good reasons why you should consider upgrading your current AC. Some of those reasons include:
- Your AC is old and outdated – While some units truly last up to 15 years with proper care and maintenance, that is not true for all HVAC systems. It also does not mean you should push a unit that long without replacing it if more cost-effective options are available. Check the standard shelf life of your AC and, if it is beyond the prescribed number of years for usage, you should consider an upgrade. The older your AC is, the more prone it is to breakdowns and repairs.
- You get it repaired more often – If you have been needing repairs more frequently in recent months, maybe what you need is a new AC unit and not your AC repairman. Recurring breakdowns suggest your AC is in desperate need of a replacement. Instead of pouring your money into repairs, why not invest it in a new model that will be more energy-efficient and will be under warranty?
- Your home suffers from uneven cooling – If one area of your home feels like Antartica while other spots seem more like the Sahara, you definitely need to get a new AC. Inconsistent cooling means you need a replacement AC system that is more efficient. One thing to consider is a ductless mini split system that allows you to control individual units in various rooms in a cost-effective, zoned cooling approach.
