Should You Replace Your Air Conditioner This Late in the Summer?

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

If your air conditioner has been struggling lately, you may not be sure whether replacement is the best option. You’ve had your air conditioner for many years, but it may seem too late in the summer to purchase a new one. However, older systems are more likely to break down with little warning, and it is often more expensive to replace a broken down air conditioner in the spring than to replace your unit now.

When you decide on air conditioning replacement, a technician measures your home and takes into account many factors to help you choose the perfect system. Air conditioning replacement is a great opportunity to have peace of mind knowing you will need fewer repairs and that your new system is energy efficient. If you need reasons to schedule replacement today, we’ve put together a list of some of the benefits of replacing an older system now.

Fewer Repairs

A new air conditioner will likely need fewer repairs than an older one. If you simply patch up frequent major repair needs by replacing or repairing parts individually, you may spend more money overtime than you would spend purchasing an entirely new system.

Reduced Risk of Sudden Breakdowns

An older air conditioner is far more likely to fail suddenly than a new system. Purchasing a system and choosing professional installation gives you peace of mind knowing that you will have a high-performance system that may not break down or need major repairs for years to come with proper care and maintenance.

Energy Efficiency

Finally, an older air conditioner usually has worn down parts that may cause the system to work harder to cool your home. This uses more energy, costing you significantly, but a new air conditioner won’t have this problem. You can also ask your air conditioning technician about the ENERGY STAR program. This distinguished label marks systems that meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s strict guideline for high efficiency and performance.

3 things to prepare for AC replacement

  • Hire a professional installation company: This is the first step… as soon as you decide it’s time to retire your old air conditioner, call up a licensed and qualified HVAC company to handle the installation. The installers will help you will the pre-installation steps that are crucial to making sure that you end up with the right system.
  • Get the ventilation system in perfect shape: If you are replacing an old central air conditioner, you should take a look at the ductwork connected to it. Time may not have been kind to it, and leaks and breaks in it will hamper the new air conditioner and lower the efficiency that you expect from it. Have duct repair and sealing specialists look over the network of ducts to see if there is work that can be done to make the seal along the ducts airtight.
  • Sign up for a maintenance program: Here is a great piece of preparation: have your new air conditioner already enrolled in a maintenance program that will deliver annual tune-ups and inspections. Take away many of your worries with a yearly scheduled maintenance session that will keep your new AC running efficiently and effectively for many years.
