If your air conditioner seems to need a lot of repairs recently, you may be unsure whether air conditioning replacement is right for you. An older air conditioner is at risk for sudden breakdowns, but the cost of replacement seems unnecessary if a simple fix can solve the problem. If money is the only consideration keeping you from choosing air conditioning replacement, read on to find out how a new AC can actually save you money over time.
Fewer Repair Needs
Sometimes, you only need a repair or two to keep your AC running smoothly for a few more years. However, if your air conditioner has lived a long life, you may run into repair needs again and again. If you replace or repair all of the major parts of your air conditioner one by one, you will most likely spend more money than if you purchase an entirely new system. And a newer system won’t run into frequent problems, saving you money for years to come.
When you purchase a new air conditioner, you can also look into systems with high efficiency ratings so that you can save money every month. When you purchased your older AC, you may have found the most efficient, top-of-the-line system available. But changes in regulations of efficiency standards as well as advancements in technology mean that you may be able to find a system with a higher SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) than your older unit. Besides, while regular maintenance can keep your air conditioner efficient for years, standard wear and tear will eventually cause your air conditioner to require more energy to run. You may see savings right away with a new system.
Finally, calling a professional for air conditioning replacement can help you make sure your new AC is installed correctly and is the proper size. If your older AC ran into problems early on, it may have been sized improperly upon installation.
