Should I Replace my Air Conditioner?
The air conditioner is a critical piece of equipment for keeping your home comfortable in Las Vegas. You want to ensure that your HVAC system is capable of keeping your home cool through whatever the summer can throw at it. That is why you should be looking for the signs that your system is in need of replacement.
Here are some of the common signals that it is time to replace your old AC unit for a new one.
Frequent Visits from Executive Air Conditioning
If you find that you are having us come out and visit you more than twice a year for your regular maintenance, it may be time to get your system upgraded.
As your air conditioner begins to break down more and more, other parts of the system begin to break. As they begin to break, other components are affected. This may mean they have to work harder to compensate, or they may be directly impacted by a critical failure of a component.
Whatever the reasons you find yourself having to call the air conditioner repair people more frequently than you have in the past, it is probably time to replace your unit. However, you already know this. We have probably made this recommendation during one of our repair visits!
Rising Energy Costs
Yes, the costs of energy are rising, but probably not as much as you are seeing reflected in your cooling bills.
As your air conditioner begins to break down, it becomes less efficient. This is simply because the parts that make up the system can not function at the high rates that they used to. Also as components of the system begin to break down, other components are forced to compensate for this breakdown by working harder.
Keep an eye on your energy bills. If you notice a steady and uncomfortable rise in your bills, it can be an indication that your system is getting ready to break down and should be replaced.
The Age of your Air Conditioner
How old is your air conditioner or complete HVAC system? As a system ages, it begins to deteriorate. There is nothing that can stop the process.
A general rule of thumb when it comes to air conditioners is to start thinking about replacement once you reach the ten-year mark. This is usually when the major components of the system begin to have problems and start breaking down.
Another great incentive for replacing older air conditioners is the fact that new ones are much more efficient. As technology advances, significant steps are being made in creating energy efficiency in air conditioners and HVAC systems in general. If your system is ten years or older the savings in your energy bills may end up paying for the system all on their own!
