Your A/C system is plugging away through another the U.S. summer and suddenly the cool air stops blowing. You call an air conditioner professional to come to your home and inspect your system and the next thing you know you’re going to have to pay a pretty penny for the repair. So at what point should you surrender and just upgrade your current air conditioning equipment?
Naturally as your system ages it’s likely to breakdown and lose efficiency. Air conditioners over ten years old are actually much less efficient than the new energy-efficient models available today. But if your system is more than 15 years old, odds are you are going to invest more money over time to keep it running than if you just invested in a new, energy-efficient A/C system.
To keep on topic with the above theme, ultimately it’s going to start costing more to invest in new parts and mend issues than it would to just invest in a new air conditioner. Another factor to remember is R-22, the common refrigerant for old air conditioning equipment, is being discontinued for the safety of the environment. If your air conditioning system was manufactured before 2010, you will most likely see a jump in the charge for your refrigerant until you replace your equipment.
Technology is constantly developing and with that comes more energy-efficient air conditioners. Equipment now tends to cost less to operate because they are capable of cooling the home more efficiently, lowering your energy bills – and who doesn’t like that?
