AC Replacement: 3 Factors to Consider

We understand that replacing your air conditioning system is probably not the most exciting way that you can think of to spend your hard earned money. Because no air conditioning system is going to last forever, though, you will eventually find yourself in need of a replacement air conditioner. When should you really start to consider an AC replacement in Capitol Hill?

In the following post, we offer a few tips to help you to determine if the time has come to replace your home cooling system. If you decide that it has, you can count on our staff to do the job right. Contact us with any questions that you may have. 

What to Consider

If you think that you should just wait for your air conditioner to break down entirely before replacing it, you are thinking about the situation all wrong. Your air conditioner is most likely to give out on you when it is working its hardest, after all. Waiting for it to fail completely puts you at risk for a period of discomfort. Instead, consider:

  • Age: Is your air conditioner approaching the end of its projected lifespan? Is it beyond this lifespan? If so, now is a good time to start looking at your replacement options. It’s better to plan a system replacement than to schedule one due to a complete breakdown.
  • Performance: Is your air conditioner no longer able to cool your home effectively? Has it always struggled to do so, perhaps because it actually isn’t of the right size for your home? Whatever the case, you deserve a great performance from your AC. Replacing an operational system due to poor performance quality is completely reasonable.
  • Efficiency: Did you inherit a rather inefficient air conditioner with your home? Was a low-efficiency model the only one that you could really afford at the time of purchase? If so, then you may want to upgrade your air conditioner to a more efficient model, offsetting the initial expense with energy savings over time.
