As your AC system ages, its efficiency will decrease, costing you more to keep your home comfortable. Advanced technology in the past decade has made new HVAC systems more energy-efficient than ever. If you’ve repaired your system more than once in the past year, it may not be worth repairing again. Spectrum Air Conditioning and Refrigeration installs many energy-efficient brands and system types, including Trane, one of the most highly respected companies in the HVAC field. Spectrum Air Conditioning and Refrigeration comfort consultants will educate you so that you can make an informed decision that fits your needs. We never use high-pressure sales.
Signs You Need an AC Replacement
A sure sign that a new system is needed is if your current system isn’t working and the repair will be at least 50% of the cost of a new system. Sometimes the signs aren’t always that clear. Here are some additional signs that it’s time to invest in a new unit.
- Your system still uses R-22 – R-22 has been in the process of being phased out since 1992 so if your system still uses R-22, it’s a sign it’s time for a new unit.
- Major part failure – Parts like the motor or compressor failing are very costly to replace; sometimes as much as 30% to 50% of the cost of a new unit. If your total repair is 30% or more of the cost of a new unit, you should consider replacing your system.
- It’s over ten years old – Of course that’s just a rough number, but generally, older systems have less than a 10 SEER rating which is very low by today’s standards. A newer unit can save you on your cooling costs.
