It can be tough to tell when an older air conditioner needs to be put out to pasture, especially if it’s been serviced regularly and can still do the job. But August is a great time to give yours a critical look and see if a new system may be in order. Our blazing hot Manor, TX summer has been going strong for months, forcing your air conditioner into daily use. The strain will show on older systems, and give you a good sense of whether it can last another few seasons, or if now is the time to act. Doing so in August gives you months of fall and winter to find the right new system for you and have it installed according to your schedule, instead of scrambling in the face of an unexpected breakdown. Only you can make the call to replace your AC system, but we like to cite three specific factors that can help.
How Old Is Your Existing System?
With proper maintenance on an annual basis, your system can last well beyond its warranty. But once it passes that moment, you need to keep an eye on it, and if costs start going up, the combination may be enough to warrant a new air conditioner.
Have You Made Frequent Repairs
If your system has required more than two repair calls in the last twelve months, that could be a sign that the system is ready to give up the ghost. Alternately, it may only be one repair job, but the cost is simply more than your existing system is worth it.
Monthly Costs Are Too High
Age breeds inefficiency, and if your monthly budget is groaning under the weight of high bills. you might want to replace your AC with a newer and more efficient one.
