Should I Replace My Air Conditioner This Year?

Here in Phoenix, AZ, the heat of summer does not really pass with the summer season. We run our air conditioning systems throughout the fall, and well into the time of the year when many people in other locations are already switching on their home heating systems. Because of this, we really cannot afford to take chances with our home cooling systems. If you are concerned about the condition of your air conditioner, let us know. We are happy to help you decide if the time has come for an air conditioning replacement. While you may want to wait until the new year, replacing your system now can save you a lot of trouble should it not make it through the end of the current cooling season.

How Old Is Your System?

You should not decide to give up on your air conditioning system simply because it is getting on in years. Modern air conditioners are built to last longer than ever before. However, you must understand that there are limits to system longevity. If your air conditioner is rapidly approaching the end of its expected lifespan, or if it is already past that point, then you should at least be considering its eventual replacement. Better to replace a system while it is still operational than to be stuck without an AC until a broken down unit is replaced.

Is It Efficient?

Perhaps, when you bought your air conditioner, you were in no financial position to spring for the level of efficiency that you’d have liked. Maybe you just bought your AC long enough ago that efficiency expectations were lower than they are today. Regardless of the exact nature of the situation, you should not suffer sticker shock every time an energy bill rolls in. We use our ACs enough to justify replacing a system if its efficiency levels are just not satisfactory.

Are You Satisfied with It?

Another reason to consider replacing an air conditioner, and quite a valid one, is if you simply don’t care for your system. You may have just inherited it with your home, after all. If you think that you’d much prefer a different type of cooling system, just let Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning know. We’ll help you to find the system that best suits your cooling needs and personal preferences.
