Your air conditioner is plugging away through another the U.S. summer and all of sudden the cool air stops blowing. You call an air conditioning technician to come over and take a look and by the time it’s all said and done you’re going to have to pay a pretty penny for the repair. So at what point do you surrender and just upgrade your current A/C equipment?
Clearly the older your system gets, the more it’s likely to fail and lose efficiency. Air conditioning systems over eight years old are now much less efficient than the new energy-efficient equipment available today. Furthermore, if your AC is more than 13 years old, you are likely to invest more money over time to keep it running than if you just bought a new, energy-efficient A/C system.
To keep on topic with the above statement, at some point it’s going to begin costing more to replace parts and mend issues than it would to just buy a new AC system. Another thing to remember is R-22, the typical refrigerant for old A/C equipment, is being withdrawn from the market for the protection of the environment. If your air conditioner was manufactured before 2010, you will soon see a jump in the fee for your refrigerant until you replace your equipment.
Technology is always advancing and with that comes more energy-efficient A/C systems. Systems now tend to cost less to operate because they are capable of cooling the home more efficiently, decreasing your energy bills – and who doesn’t want that?
