Should I Replace My AC This Year?

If you’ve looked at the weather forecast for the coming weeks, you probably realize that you are not going to be needing your air conditioning system for some time. This does not mean, however, that you should put your air conditioner entirely out of mind. If you’ve been thinking about replacing your air conditioner in Wellington, CO, you may want to do it this year. Not only do you not have to wait for a complete breakdown with your AC before replacing it, you really shouldn’t do so. 

So When Should I Replace My System?

A completely broken down air conditioner is really the only situation in which a complete replacement is your obvious course of action. However, because you don’t want to wait for such a breakdown to develop, it pays to keep a few other factors in mind.

  1. The age of your system is a big one to consider. You want to get the best possible return on the investment you made in your air conditioner. Pushing your system far beyond its projected lifespan, however, will likely result in a breakdown when you need it most. It’s better to replace the system before this happens, allowing it to go out on a high note.
  2. The efficiency of your system is another major point of consideration. You don’t want to overpay to cool your home, after all. If you invested in a lower efficiency system to save some money at the time, or if your older system pales in comparison to the efficiency standards of today, then investing in a more efficient system today is a great way to save money in the years to come.
  3. Finally, keep your overall satisfaction at the top of your priority list. Maybe you inherited a system that you would not have chosen yourself with your home. Maybe you want to try eliminating air ducts from your AC setup. Whatever the case, we’ll help you to find a great new system.
