Tullahoma, Tennessee, residents expect to stay comfortable all year long. That is why it’s important to keep HVAC systems in the best working condition. However, age and wear and tear will eventually impact performance, making a replacement inevitable. Here are some important points to keep in mind when deciding whether to upgrade your air conditioner this year.
Consider the Age of Your System
The U.S. Department of Energy recommends replacing your air conditioning if it is more than 10 years old. Over time, your AC will become less efficient and use more energy. Advances in HVAC technology mean you have better options for high-performance units. By upgrading your air conditioner, you reduce energy waste, and your family will enjoy the most comfortable temperatures indoors this summer.
Take a Look at Your Utility Bill
If the cost of cooling your home has been steadily increasing over the years, it may be time to upgrade to a new unit. Studies by the U.S. Department of Energy revealed that homeowners could save as much as 50 percent on their air conditioning costs by upgrading to a new heat pump or air conditioning system.
Add Up the Cost of Repairs
Frequent repairs can be a good indicator that your current air conditioner is due for an upgrade. By adding up the total cost of cooling repairs over the past few years, you can determine whether replacing your system is a cost-effective move. Remember to include the potential savings on your utility bills and the improved performance of a new unit when deciding to upgrade or to maintain your current system.
