Your AC is working away through another the U.S. summer and all of sudden the cool air stops coming out. You call an air conditioning professional to come out to inspect your system and before it’s over you’re going to have to pay a chuck of change for the repair. So at what point should you surrender and just change out your current A/C equipment?
Naturally the older the system the more it’s likely to fail and lose efficiency. A/C systems over eight years old are already much less efficient than the new energy-efficient systems available today. Furthermore, if your system is more than 14 years old, you are likely to invest more money over time to keep it running than if you just bought a new, energy-efficient air conditioning system.
To piggyback on the theme above, eventually it’s going to begin costing more to replace parts and mend issues than it would to just buy a new air conditioner. Another issue to remember is R-22, the usual refrigerant for old A/C equipment, is being phased out for the well-being of the environment. If your air conditioning system was assembled before 2010, you will most likely see a large increase in the charge for your refrigerant until you upgrade your system.
Technology is continuously developing and with that comes more energy-efficient air conditioners. New systems tend to cost less to run because they can cool the home more efficiently, decreasing your cooling bills – and who doesn’t want that?
