The weather is heating up and Vogts Heating & Air knows you want to make sure you stay comfortable all summer long. So, if your air conditioner isn’t running properly, how do you know whether to make the investment toward repairs or purchasing a new system?
Here are some questions you should consider when establishing 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 consider getting a replacement air conditioner. The technology and efficiencies in HVAC systems have continued to evolve in recent years and there some extra features that favor your home and wallet.
- How often are the breakdowns occurring?
If your repairs have been few and far between, it may not make sense to take the plunge to a new system. However, if your system is requiring help on a more frequent basis, you are putting substantial money 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 monitor your monthly energy usage. And since temperatures do change throughout the year, it’s a good idea to do annual comparisons to get a more accurate account of how your energy usage has changed. If your system is laboring harder to accomplish the same results, it will result in higher energy consumption.
