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

The weather is heating up and Polar Air & Heating Inc knows you want to make sure you remain cool 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 contemplate investing in 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 help 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 repairs on a more frequent basis, you are putting a lot of cash into fixing a system that may not be operating 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 throughout the year, it’s a good idea to do annual comparisons to get a more specific account of how your energy usage has changed. If your system is working harder to achieve 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 an indication that something isn’t right. Our experts can help you decide if it needs repair or if you should consider a new system. We can also help you assess whether you have the most suitable system for your house and if it has the capacity to completely cool your house.
