How long have you had your air conditioner? The average lifespan of an A/C system in Arizona is about 15 years. If you have had your unit longer than this, and experience constant breakdowns and problems, then it may be time to replace your unit.
3 Common Issues That Occur with Older HVAC Systems
Over time, your unit can experience a lot of wear and tear, especially as it battles the Phoenix heat. The following are common problems that occur in older units, suggesting it’s time to upgrade.
Your Unit Is Slowing Down
Older air conditioning units may start to perform slower as they succumb to their age. If you notice your home is taking longer and longer to cool down, and you have already performed proper maintenance, then you may want to consider a replacement.
Your Unit Is No Longer Performing Efficiently
Over time, certain components in your A/C system may become damaged with age. This causes your unit to work overtime and use more energy, ultimately costing you more money than you originally bargained for. Modern systems are advanced and can help you decrease your energy costs while lowering your monthly bills. Call one of ACE’s friendly representative and ask about upgrading to one of our advanced, energy-efficient systems.
Your Unit Requires Frequent Repairs
If you find yourself having to constantly schedule repairs for you unit, then you are wasting time and money. Overtime, the amount you spend in repairs could pay for the new unit itself. Financially speaking, an upgrade may be in your best interest.
