It doesn’t take long for the summer heat to arrive here in beautiful Austin. While we love the heat and the sunshine, there comes a time when you need to cool down. After all, that’s what a whole-house air conditioning unit is for. But with all the dust, debris, and use over the years, your AC sure does take a beating. What is the difference between repair and replacement? When is your AC ready to retire? Let’s take a look at 3 reasons to get a new air conditioner right now.
- Your air conditioner is ancient. If your AC is well over a dozen or even 15 years old, then you may want to consider a new model. When you’re shopping around for a new AC, check out a make and model with a high SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The higher the number, the more efficient it is. If your cooling system is ancient, then you’ll be happily surprised at your new system’s efficiency.
- Your air conditioner fails constantly. There comes a time when enough is enough. If you’re constantly shelling out your hard-earned dollar for AC repairs, then you may want to consider replacing your AC. Frequent problems are not only a nuisance: they’re also a sign that your system is failing. Let one of our technicians have a look and we’ll help you make a smart financial decision.
- Your air conditioner is expensive to operate. High energy costs often come with the constant use of an older system. If you’re sick and tired of paying a premium price for cooling, then investigate your cooling options. There are some great systems out there that are particularly well-suited to our climate, including central air conditioners, heat pumps, and ductless mini splits.
