3 Signs It’s Time For A New AC Installation
If you’re like many homeowners, you and your family depend on your air conditioning system for a great deal of the comfort you enjoy in your home, especially during the spring and summer months, but as with all things, your home's AC is going to become less and less effective over time, until it breaks down altogether. While many homeowners are content to let their old air conditioning systems run until they can't anymore, it is far more effective to be aware of the warning signs that your system is nearing replacement age and take steps to ensure you and your family aren't stuck without a working AC when you need one most. To help you get a better idea of what these warning signs are so you have the forewarning you need, our team of skilled AC installation professionals have taken the time to put together this short list. If you notice any of these signs with your system, give our team of San Diego HVAC pros a call today and let us help you schedule your new AC installation.
Your System Is Older Than 10 Years
Most air conditioning systems, if they are properly maintained, have an average lifespan of between 10 and 15 years, but if you haven't kept up with maintenance in that time, your system might not make it to that age, and definitely not without issue. If your air conditioning system is older than 10 years and you notice that more and more things seem to be going wrong with it, or it just isn't able to perform its job like it once did, it might be time to start considering a new AC installation and finding a convenient time to have the job performed.
More Frequent Breakdowns
While all air conditioning systems experience their fair share of problems from time to time, if you notice that your system seems to be breaking down more and more frequently as of late, needing new parts and repairs on a nearly constant basis, it might be a better option to just go ahead and invest in a new AC installation as opposed to pouring more money into an older unit. The money you’re spending on repairs is money that could easily go into getting your new unit installed, and best of all, your new system isn't going to need repairs on a monthly basis in order to keep your home cool.
Your System Is Inefficient
It's not unusual for energy bills to go up during the summer months while your air conditioning system is trying to cool your home, but if your energy bills seem to be getting higher and higher and your usage isn’t changing, it could be a sign that your system is in need of replacement. As time goes on, your home's AC is only going to start running less and less efficiently, and this can cost you a great deal in the form of additional energy costs at the end of the month. If your cooling costs are eating you out of house and home, give our team of skilled technicians a call today and let us help you start looking for the new unit you need for convenient cooling throughout your home.
