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

The weather is heating up and Airmax Long Island Inc realizes you want to make sure you stay comfortable all summer long. So, if your air conditioner isn’t running correctly, 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 choose to think about getting a replacement air conditioner. The technology and efficiencies in HVAC systems have continued to develop in recent years and there many added features that benefit 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 jump to a new system. However, if your system is requiring help on a more frequent basis, you are putting a lot of 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 vary throughout the year, it’s a good idea to do annual comparisons to get a more accurate idea of how your energy usage has changed. If your system is running harder to accomplish the same results, it will result in higher energy expenditure.
  • Do you notice a change in your home comfort?
