The weather is heating up and Speedy Air Conditioning knows 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 think about getting a replacement air conditioner. The technology and efficiencies in HVAC systems have continued to progress 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 few and far between, it may not make sense to take the plunge to a new system. However, if your system is requiring help on a more frequent basis, you are putting considerable money into fixing a system that may not be operating properly.
- Have you noticed an increase in your energy usage?
It’s a good idea to keep an eye on your monthly energy usage. And since temperatures do change throughout the year, it’s a good idea to do annual comparisons to get a more specific idea of how your energy usage has changed. If your system is working harder to produce the same results, it will result in higher energy consumption.
- Do you notice a change in your home comfort?
