How Do I Know if I Need a New Air Conditioner?

The weather is heating up and Air-Dynamics Inc understands you want to make sure you stay content all summer long. So, if your air conditioner isn’t running properly, how do you know whether to make the investment toward repairs or purchasing a new system?

Here are some questions you should consider when establishing if you need a new air conditioner:

  • How old is my system?
    If your system is 10 to 15 years old, you may want to contemplate buying a replacement air conditioner. The technology and efficiencies in HVAC systems have continued to evolve in recent years and there a lot of added features that favor your home and wallet.
  • How often are the breakdowns occurring?
    If your repairs have been infrequent, it may not make sense to take the leap to a new system. However, if your system is requiring help on a more frequent basis, you are putting considerable funds into fixing a system that may not be working properly.
  • Have you noticed an increase in your energy usage?
    It’s a good idea to check your monthly energy usage. And since temperatures do vary during the year, it’s a good idea to do once a year comparisons to get a more definite account of how your energy usage has changed. If your system is running harder to achieve the same results, it will result in higher energy use.
