Your A/C system is chugging away through another the U.S. summer and all of sudden the cool air stops coming out. You call an A/C system technician to come out to take a look and before it’s over you’re going to have to pay an arm and a leg for the repair. So when should you surrender and just upgrade your current AC equipment?
Naturally the older your system gets, the more it’s likely to breakdown and lose efficiency. A/C systems over ten years old are now much less efficient than the more recent energy-efficient models available today. Additionally, if your equipment is more than 14 years old, you are probably going to put in more money over time to keep it running than if you just invested in a new, energy-efficient air conditioner.
To piggyback on the statement above, ultimately it’s going to begin costing more to invest in new parts and fix issues than it would to just buy a new air conditioner. Another thing to note is R-22, the typical refrigerant for old cooling equipment, is being discontinued for the safety of the environment. If your air conditioning system was manufactured before 2010, you will probably see a large increase in the price of your refrigerant until you replace your system.
Technology is continuously advancing and with that comes more energy-efficient air conditioning equipment. New systems tend to cost less to operate because they are able to cool the home more efficiently, saving you money on your utility bills – and who doesn’t enjoy that?
