It can be hard to decide when it’s time to replace your cooling unit, but our Los Angeles and Orange County air conditioning specialists have compiled a list of some definite signs you shouldn’t ignore.
Your AC Unit Is Old
If your system is at least 10 years old, it might be time to start thinking about replacing it. Even if the unit seems to be working fine, it’s likely not working at peak efficiency and will be more prone to breakdowns as it continues to age.
If your unit is breaking down frequently, then our air conditioning professionals suggest that you consider replacement. Even if the system is less than 10 years old, if you have to have the unit fixed once a year, those costs start to add up, and it may make more sense to invest your money into a new unit instead.
Your Unit Uses Freon
If you have an older unit, it likely uses freon as its coolant. The federal government has been phasing out the use of freon, and it is currently difficult to obtain and expensive, which can make any freon-related service expensive. Eventually, the gas will be completely phased out, and at that point you will have to replace your unit.
Your Unit Is Inefficient
If your unit can’t seem to keep up with the heat, then Adeedo!’s air conditioning professionals suggest that you might want to consider replacement. The less efficient your unit is, the harder time it has keeping up, which can result in higher energy usage. Older units are less efficient to begin with than newer ones, and they also can lose some of their efficiency as they age. So, it is best to keep your model up-to-date in order to reduce costs on your electric bill.
