Your AC is plugging away through another the U.S. summer and suddenly the cool air stops blasting. You call an A/C system technician to come over and inspect your system and the next thing you know you’re going to have to pay an arm and a leg for the repair. So at what point do you surrender and just upgrade your current air conditioning equipment?
Obviously the older the system the more it’s likely to fail and lose efficiency. Air conditioners over nine years old are already much less efficient than the current energy-efficient equipment available today. Furthermore, if your equipment is more than 13 years old, you are likely to put in more money over time to keep it running than if you just invested in a new, energy-efficient air conditioner.
To continue with the above theme, eventually it’s going to begin costing more to buy parts and mend issues than it would to just purchase a new air conditioner. Another thing to note is R-22, the common refrigerant for old air conditioning equipment, is being discontinued for the well-being of the environment. If your air conditioning system was manufactured before 2010, you will probably see a spike in the charge for your refrigerant until you upgrade your system.
Technology is constantly developing and with that comes more energy-efficient A/C systems. Systems now tend to cost less to use because they can cool the home more efficiently, saving you money on your energy bills – and who doesn’t like that?
