It’s hot? There are likely a couple of culprits. One, you live in Texas and it’s summer (or still feels like summer). Or two, your AC is out. Both can be pretty hot. The latter is probably your biggest issue. Here are the top three signs it’s time for a new air conditioner.
Age: Older models are not energy efficient. If it’s possible, find out how long your AC unit has been in service. If it is between 10-12 years old, start looking for a new system. Chances are it will likely begin (or it already does) show signs of failure. If you purchased your home from another family, there is no way of knowing whether or not the previous owners took proper care of your AC unit. Less maintenance=shorter lifespan.
Frequent and on-going repairs: Like any technological invention these days, your air conditioner requires a little TLC. But if you’ve had to contact your HVAC contractor on multiple occasions over the past 30-90 days, it’s probably time for an upgrade. Constant services and repairs will cost you more than replacement. You are better off cutting your losses and hiring a trusted AC company to provide you with a new AC installation.
Inefficiency: An old AC will cost you more in utility bills. As your air conditioner gets older, it wastes energy trying to cool your home. The machine is consistently running to keep the temperature comfortable. That means you’re spending more money on your electric bill. Some new air conditioners can cut the heating and cooling portion of your utility bill in half.
