When to Replace Your AC
Having to replace your AC can be a stressful time thanks to the costs and labor involved. However, choosing to go with the right AC company can help make this process a breeze. At The Plumbing & Air Service Co., we know that AC replacement can be stressful which is why we came up with these tips to let you know when you should replace your AC:
- Your home or needs have grown: Replacing your AC system when it can no longer meet your demands and cool your larger home or family is a great idea.
- Your unit is old: Most AC units are not made to last longer than 10-12 years. The older your AC is, the higher your utility and repair costs are bound to be.
- Your home is humid: If you notice moisture in your home, it’s time to get your AC checked out immediately. Moisture in your home can cause mold growth and damage to your property.
- Your utility costs are rising: High utility costs are a sign that your AC isn’t working as efficiently as it should be.
When it comes to home cooling, there are many options available on the market that can keep you comfortable and save you money. SEER ratings, which rate the efficiency of AC systems, rise every year. SEER ratings for AC systems are at 13 now compared to older systems. These higher SEER ratings could save you 20-30% more on cooling costs. Replacing your AC with a newer model is a great way to have a more green, efficient, affordable system. If you’re interested in more alternative cooling options, ductless mini-split AC systems are a great way to save money as the ability to create cooling zones within your home can save you money. Heat pumps are another system that are a good option for homeowners living in milder climates as they serve the dual function of both heating and cooling.
