An air conditioner replacement isn’t something most homeowners want to think about, particularly in the middle of summer in Texas! The truth is though, no air conditioning system lasts forever, no matter how well maintained it is or how well you keep on top of repairs. However, it’s also not something you should rush into.
In order to make an educated decision about whether a replacement is best or if your system could get by a few more years with proper repairs, it’s important to understand the signs of a truly failing system. If you do decide that a replacement is definitely necessary, then our team is ready to help.
How Old Is Your Air Conditioner?
Well maintained air conditioning systems are designed to last about 10-15 years, sometimes longer, before they need to be updated. If your AC system is younger than this and hasn’t experienced a great deal of issues, then you may want to invest in repairs for now rather than a full system replacement.
Is Your System Performing Well?
If your AC system is not effectively cooling your home, or struggles to do so, then it could be that it was not sized correctly to begin with, and you may need a new system. If it’s only just begun having this problem however, then it may simply be that a component is failing and that repairs are necessary.
How Efficient Is Your AC?
If your air conditioner seems to be working harder than it should have to, it may not be efficient enough for your home. Or it may have aged to a point that it no longer has the ability to work as efficiently as before, and should be upgraded.
