Signs That It’s Time to Replace Your Air Conditioning System

 

We’re just about at the 100 degree mark for daytime temps here in Benson, and even though the evening temps are still dropping into the 70s, it’s hot – too hot to have your air conditioner run poorly or, worse, break down entirely. Like any other mechanical system, your air conditioner will give some signs that it’s on its way out – signs you shouldn’t ignore. Your air conditioning replacement in Benson is a big decision, so if you aren’t sure whether or not it’s really time to replace, let the following tips from Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning help you to decide:

  • It’s hard to keep your home cool – does it take a long time for your home to reach the temperature on the thermostat? Are there multiple hot and cold spots throughout your home? Both of these can be signs of an aging air conditioner that is no longer capable of cooling your home.
  • Constant breakdowns – we love to see our customers, but there can come a time when we are seeing you too much. If you need repairs frequently, such as every 4-6 weeks, it may be time to call us for a consultation instead of a repair. Why? At some point, constant repairs can cost as much as a replacement system, but without any of the benefits. If you experience too many breakdowns, speak with a Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning expert about a possible replacement.
  • Low on efficiency – if your air conditioner is 8 years old or older, the SEER number – the number that rates its efficiency – is likely below the federal standard of 13. This is because the SEER number laws changed in 2006, raising the minimum SEER from 10 to 13. While this may not seem like much of a jump, it is estimated by Energy.gov that each SEER point can equal as much as a 5% savings on your monthly energy bill.
  • Very expensive repairs – you may not need constant repair, but do you need very expensive repairs to keep your system running? The same idea applies to this scenario, too: at some point you will have paid enough in costly repairs to have paid for a new system.
