A/C Service or a New Installation?
Your air conditioning system still works but it seems that you have to call for A/C service more frequently. How do you know when it’s time to consider a new system?
Most of us know that systems need seasonal maintenance to optimize performance but that isn’t what we mean by A/C service. A/C service calls are usually made when your system isn’t running properly–or not running at all. When repair calls become more frequent, it’s difficult to decide whether to invest in A/C service or a new heating and cooling system. While every situation is different, if you say yes to the questions below, it may be time for a new system.
1. Is your air conditioner more than 10 years old? There have been great strides in energy efficiency and you may find that a new unit would use less energy and therefore reduce your utlity bills while keeping you cooler.
2. Do you have frequent A/C service calls? If your system is older and/or has been neglected, it may need more repairs. Over time, the costs of frequent A/C service calls may create a tipping point, where it makes much more sense financially to invest in a new system.
3. Are there many hot or cold spots in your home? Malfunctioning systems may cool or heat inconsistently. This may also be attributed to duct or insulation problems. That’s why it’s so important to get the opinion of a professional who can test and troubleshoot for you.
It is possible that A/C service is the right choice for you but if you answered yes to any of these questions–or if you have noticed increased humidity, dust, and noise–it may be time to get an estimate for a new heating and cooling system.
