Is It Too Late for New Air Conditioning Installation?

 

There are many warning signs that could indicate you should replace your older air conditioner with a new system. Air conditioners lose some efficiency over time and may not run as well as they once did. But the cooling season began a while ago, and you may believe it is too late to schedule air conditioning installation. Your AC can survive another year, right? But if your air conditioner is at risk to break down sometime soon, now may be the best time for air conditioning installation in Phoenix.

How to Tell if Your AC is at Risk

You wouldn’t want your air conditioner to break down suddenly in the hot Phoenix summer, but you also wouldn’t want to spend money replacing a system that works just fine. There are many ways to tell your air conditioner may be ready to retire. Check the manufacturer’s guide for the estimated lifespan of your system, but, in general, systems that are ten years old are often at a high risk for sudden breakdowns.

Another indicator is frequent repair calls. If your air conditioner has needed several somewhat costly repairs recently, it may be more economical to replace the entire system rather than repairing each part individually. A repair technician can help you decide if this is the case.

Choosing a New System

Your next step is to choose the system that’s right for you. Air conditioners have different efficiency levels, indicated by the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) but they also come in different sizes. It’s vital to allow an AC technician to help you find the proper size and model for your home, as an oversized or undersized system can cause problems later on. The technician will take into account the measurement of the home and the space to be cooled, but there are other factors involved as well. These include the number of people in your home, the location of windows, and the type of insulation.
