Your air conditioning system is chugging away through another the U.S. summer and then your cold air stops blasting. You call an AC expert to come out to take a look and the next thing you know you’re going to have to pay a steep price for the repair. So at what point do you give up and just replace your current AC equipment?
Obviously the older your system gets, the more it’s likely to fail and lose efficiency. Air conditioners over ten years old are already much less efficient than the current energy-efficient equipment available today. Furthermore, if your system is more than 14 years old, odds are you are going to lose more money over time to keep it running than if you just invested in a new, energy-efficient A/C system.
To keep on topic with the statement above, at some point it’s going to begin costing more to invest in new parts and mend issues than it would to just purchase a new A/C. Another issue to remember is R-22, the usual refrigerant for old air conditioning equipment, is being withdrawn from the market for the protection of the environment. If your air conditioning system was produced before 2010, you will most likely see a large increase in the charge for your refrigerant until you upgrade your equipment.
Engineering is always improving and with that comes more energy-efficient A/C systems. Systems now tend to cost less to use because they are capable of cooling the home more efficiently, decreasing your utility bills – and who doesn’t want that?
