If you’re like most Andrews, TX, homeowners, you rely on your air conditioning system to stay cool. While it would be nice if your air conditioner lasted a lifetime, that’s not the case. Knowing when your AC system needs replacing comes down to identifying the common signs. Here are three of them:
Approaching 10 Years Old
Most residential air conditioning systems have a lifespan of between 10 to 15 years. If your unit is approaching the 10-year mark, it’s time to think about replacing it. It’s much more convenient to replace your system when you’re prepared to do so with respect to your timing and budgeting.
Scheduling Frequent AC Repairs
While it’s likely that you’ll need to get your system repaired a couple of times throughout its lifespan, it shouldn’t be much more than that. If you’ve been scheduling frequent repairs, it’s time to consider a new air conditioner. You don’t want to spend a fortune fixing your old air conditioning system to have it completely fail on you in the near future. Spending now can save you a lot later.
Your Home Feels Hot
Have you noticed that your home simply doesn’t cool down to a comfortable level no matter how long your air conditioning system has been running? If so, you may need a new one. It’s very likely that your existing AC system is too small for the size of your home. Getting the proper air conditioner size to meet your home’s square footage and layout is the key to summertime comfort.
