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

The weather is heating up and Wallpe Heating & Cooling realizes you want to make sure you stay content all summer long. So, if your air conditioner isn’t running well, how do you know whether to make the investment toward repairs or purchasing a new system?

Here are some questions you should consider 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 prefer 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 additional features that favor your home and wallet.
  • How often are the breakdowns occurring?
    If your repairs have been infrequent, it may not make sense to take the jump to a new system. However, if your system is requiring assistance on a more frequent basis, you are putting substantial cash into fixing a system that may not be functioning properly.
  • Have you noticed an increase in your energy usage?
    It’s a good idea to check your monthly energy usage. And since temperatures do vary during the year, it’s a good idea to do annual comparisons to get a more accurate account of how your energy usage has changed. If your system is working harder to accomplish the same results, it will result in higher energy consumption.
  • Do you notice a change in your home comfort?
    If your air conditioning system isn’t keeping you cool and comfortable, that’s a sign that something isn’t right. Our experts can help you figure out if it needs repair or if you should think about a new system.
