How Do I Know if I Need a New Air Conditioner?

The weather is heating up and B&W Services knows you want to make sure you remain content 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 think about when determining if you need a new air conditioner:

  • How old is my system?
    If your system is 10 to 15 years old, you may choose to think about investing in a replacement air conditioner. The technology and efficiencies in HVAC systems have continued to develop 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 a rare occasion, 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 considerable money into fixing a system that may not be working properly.
  • Have you noticed an increase in your energy usage?
    It’s a good idea to check your monthly energy usage. And since temperatures do vary over the year, it’s a good idea to do annual comparisons to get a more definite idea of how your energy usage has changed. If your system is working harder to achieve the same results, it will result in higher energy use.
  • Do you notice a change in your home comfort?
