How Do I Know if I Need a New Air Conditioner?

The weather is heating up and Morgner Incorporated Air Conditioning & Heating knows you want to make sure you stay cool all summer long. So, if your air conditioner isn’t running correctly, how do you know whether to make the investment toward repairs or purchasing a new system?

Here are some questions you should think about when determining if you need a new air conditioner:

  • How old is my system?
    If your system is 10 to 15 years old, you may want to think about buying a replacement air conditioner. The technology and efficiencies in HVAC systems have continued to progress in recent years and there a lot of extra features that favor your home and wallet.
  • How often are the breakdowns occurring?
    If your repairs have been a rare occasion, it may not make sense to take the leap to a new system. However, if your system is requiring assistance on a more frequent basis, you are putting considerable money into fixing a system that may not be working properly.
  • Have you noticed an increase in your energy usage?
    It’s a good idea to monitor your monthly energy usage. And since temperatures do change throughout the year, it’s a good idea to do once a year comparisons to get a more specific picture of how your energy usage has changed. If your system is working harder to achieve the same results, it will result in higher energy expenditure.
  • Do you notice a change in your home comfort?
