Do I Need a New Air Conditioner?

Posted on: July 30, 2014

You can skate by with maintenance and repairs for a long time when it comes to your air conditioner, but eventually, you’ll start spending more reviving your aging AC than you would installing a brand new one.

The experts at Dowd’s Mechanical, Heating & Air Conditioning are here to help you determine when you can opt for repairs and when it’s time for a replacement.

Repair or Replace?

How can you decide if you need a new air conditioner? Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Is your AC more than 10 – 15 years old?
  • Does your system require frequent (and costly) repairs?
  • Is the original SEER of your AC lower than 13?
  • Have your utility bills steadily increased in the last few years?
  • Is the temperature from room to room inconsistent?
  • Does your system struggle to keep your home at a comfortable temperature?

If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, it may be time for an air conditioner replacement. A new air conditioner can help solve any issues you’re having with your aging system, from poor energy efficiency to unsatisfactory cooling and more.

Air conditioners manufactured today can be as much as twice as efficient as those created 5 – 10 years ago. This means not only will your home be more comfortable with a new air conditioner, but that you can save money on your monthly utility bills. In fact, the money you recoup from your energy bills can help offset the price of the system’s installation.
