A new air conditioning system can be costly to replace in your home. This is a major appliance and one that adds value to your home, not to mention the benefits you get from this appliance. Your appliance will eventually need to be replaced, and you have to decide whether you want to replace it before it breaks down or wait until it breaks down and you are left sweating in the heat. To help you decide if it's time to invest in a new AC system, read on for some signs that it's time.
1. Your System Has Had Multiple Breakdowns
If you have had to repair your system multiple times, it may be time to have a new one installed in your home. A system that constantly breaks down can be costly, and all of those repairs and replacement parts can add up with time. Those breakdowns may be stepping stones to a major breakdown that could really break the bank. If you have had to repair your system several times, or your unit breaks down often, you should consider having a new system installed in your home instead of dealing with the breakdown costs.
2. Your System Isn't Able To Keep Up
If you've had an issue with your unit not being able to keep up with the temperature in your home, or your unit is very costly and your energy costs are all adding up, it may be time to consider investing in a new unit. A unit that is not able to keep up with the temperature in your home may not be a large enough capacity for the size of your home. If energy costs are also adding up, you may be overrunning a small system and could be setting yourself up for breakdowns in the near future, if you aren't already dealing with them.
3. Your System Has Seen A Few Decades
If your system has seen a few different decades, it may be time to invest in a new system. An aging system can be costly to repair, and it may be more and more difficult (and expensive) to find parts for an older unit. If your system is old, it's time to consider a new system for your home.
If you have noticed any of these signs with your air conditioning system, you may want to consider having a new system installed in your home. Reach out to a company like Donovan & Jorgenson Heating and Cooling for more advice.
