Early summer is here, and residents of Frisco, TX will need their air conditioners functioning at full capacity if they want to keep their homes cool and comfortable. If your system is older, now is a good time to think about replacing it. Better to do so now and enjoy the benefits of a new system all summer than suffer a breakdown in the middle of a heat wave that necessitates you scrambling for a replacement option. Only you can decide if your old system requires replacing, but we have 3 quick guidelines that can help make that decision easier.
1. Repairs Are Getting Out of Hand
It may be that your system has been dealing with multiple repairs in a short period of time, and it always feels like your system is being worked on. It may simply be one repair that costs more than you feel the system is worth. Whatever the reason, those growing expenses may be suggesting that your system is finally ready to be done.
2. Bills are Too High
Older systems tend to cost a lot more to run from month to month than newer ones. Wear and tear produces inefficiency and while regular maintenance can mitigate that, age catches up to everything sooner or later. If you’ve watched your monthly cooling bills creep up over the last few years despite efforts to the contrary, then replacement may be the best option.
3. The Warranty Has Expired
The warranty is a good litmus test to determine whether your existing air conditioner has run its course of not. Again, with regular care and maintenance, you can extend the system’s life beyond the warranty’s, by months or even years in some cases. If your warranty has expired, however, and you’re looking at one or both of the two issues discussed above, that combination may be enough to necessitate a change.
