If you’re asking yourself this question, or if you’re asking Google, chances are you’re having difficulty letting go of a decrepit AC system, or you’re perhaps thinking about replacing one and want to know when it’s time to call it a day on repair. Okay, we can help you with the answer to this question.
That answer depends on a few variables, many of which are only answerable after a careful examination of the system, along with you, the homeowner, explaining the history of the system, and with knowledge of the system’s age.
Is my AC system decrepit?
If the system is near the end of its lifetime, which, again, is about 15-20 years, it might be time for replacement. Why replace it if it’s decrepit? Because it’s costing you money–and lots of it. An old, inefficient system, that’s highly outdated, cannot keep up with the energy efficient systems of today, because it wasn’t built today.
In addition to being inefficient, if it’s old, it likely requires frequent repairs. If the system doesn’t require frequent repairs, because you’ve maintained it like the super stellar homeowner that you are–that’s great! But you still might want to consider replacing the system for energy efficient reasons.
Greener AC Systems–Why go green?
By replacing your outdated system with a green AC system, you’ll lower home energy usage by an amazing 20-50%! Just think about the cost savings along, not to mention the peace of mind you’ll feel knowing that you’re saving money, increasing comfort levels of the home, and saving the planet.
This is a win-win for homeowners. Other perks with your fancy new green system–the installation of a programmable thermostat, truly empowering homeowners when it comes to temperature control.
