Why Replace an Older but Still Working A/C System?

Most homeowners don’t think about replacing appliances unless they old on stops working. However, with the technological advancements over the last ten years, it makes a lot of sense to rethink that adage. Statistically, most HVAC equipment is replaced for the following reasons:

  • Efficiency—Replacing a 10-15 year old A/C system can save up to 50% of electric consumption. Energy Star rated equipment has SEER ratings up to 20+ compared to old units with 8 SEER.
  • Rebates—Utility companies and manufacturers are offering cash rebates on select models. The amount varies from several hundred to over $2,000.
  • Frequent Repairs—If the equipment has multiple repairs or a major repair, you should consider a replacement. Applying expensive repair costs towrads new equipment makes more sense.
  • Comfort—Many old units were not sized properly thereby not maximizing the dehumidification process. With a proper load calculation we can install the correct size equipment which will result in the most comfortable home possible.

If you plan on staying in your home for a few years, then upgrading to high efficiency equipment will not only save you money but also eliminate any repair bills.
