When your current air conditioning unit seems to be on its last leg, you are faced with a pretty big decision: do you repair the unit or replace it all together? This decision could mean either spending lots of cash for replacement parts and labor for a big repair that could take an extensive amount of time, or scrapping the unit altogether and investing in something brand new.
The first thing to consider with this dilemma is the age of your air conditioning unit. If the unit is more than 10 years old, it’s probably time to replace it. If your home is having problems with humidity or improper distribution of cold or heat throughout the home, it might be time to replace the unit. Finally, if your unit has been undergoing frequent repairs or your energy bill continues to go up, it’s time to replace the unit.
Benefits of replacing your unit:
There are many benefits of replacing your ac unit besides an overall improvement in comfort! One of the biggest advantages is a drop in your monthly utility bills. With a new unit, your AC unit has improved energy efficiency, so you’ll see your energy bill start to go down almost immediately.
Newer units also have a much higher life expectancy as well as reliability. With a new unit, you won’t have to worry about repairs nearly as much as with an older unit.
Hate that loud buzz your current unit makes? Over the years, air conditioning units have become far quieter. With a new unit, you’ll be able to enjoy the rooms closest to the units without that obnoxious buzzing.
