Do You Need a New Air Conditioner?

Now is not the time when you want to discover that you need a new air conditioner. However, trying to get through a Florida summer without a truly effective air conditioner is going to be something that you probably want to avoid!

If you have an AC system that needs to be replaced, now is exactly when you want to get this task taken care of. Delaying it and trying to force your old air conditioner to perform longer than it should is going to increase your energy bills and may lead to a complete system breakdown in the hottest part of the year.

Let’s talk about what the warning signs are that you may need an AC replacement in Pasco County, FL so you can schedule this service before it costs you!

If your air conditioner is struggling to get by, now is the time to get a replacement, especially if your system is exhibiting any of the following warning signs.

1. Your current system is between 10 to 15 years old

Age is an important number to take note of in regards to your air conditioner. An aging air conditioner might be repairable but if your system is over a decade old, it may mean that it is time to consider whether the repair is worth it. At the least, a 10-year-old system is one that you should be preparing to replace in the coming years. A 15-year-old system is one that you should be looking to replace rather than repair.

2. You require repairs too frequently.

Speaking of system repairs, how frequently are you having to schedule repairs for your air conditioner? If the answer is more than once every few years, then you likely need to look into system replacement. Having to schedule repairs every year is a sign that your system needs to be replaced instead of repaired.

3. The cost of repairs has gotten too expensive

Another indicator of a system that needed to be replaced is that the repairs for your AC have gotten too pricey. Make sure to take the price of your next repair into account. If the cost of the repair could pay for half or more of the price of a new system, you are better off upgrading instead.

4. The cooling system is unable to produce cool air anymore

Last but certainly not least, don’t bother keeping around an air conditioner that just doesn’t do what it is meant to do. When you’ve had your system repaired and gotten it maintained regularly or even just semi-regularly, but it still isn’t producing any cool air, then you need to have your system assessed for replacement. Keeping an AC unit in place that isn’t able to produce cool air means you are paying added money for less comfort.

Based on the warning signs we’ve listed here, you may have determined that you do, indeed need a new air conditioner. If this is the case, you’ll need a professional technician to help you get your old AC removed and your new one installed. Our team of experts is ready to do just that whenever you call.
