We know that you want to save money. That’s why it can be so hard to accept when your air conditioner or your heater has finally bitten the dust. But we want to help save you money, and we want to make sure that your home comfort system doesn’t break down when you really need it.
That’s why we recommend replacing an older air conditioner or heater well before it breaks down for good.
Waiting too long can cost you
The longer you wait to replace your old worn-down air conditioner or heater, the more it can cost when you finally do schedule service. For one thing, you have to schedule emergency service. Hauling off an old broken system and replacing it with a new one in an emergency situation can end up being a lot more expensive than doing it before it breaks down.
Besides, there are energy costs to be concerned about. When your air conditioner or heater is not performing properly, it means that the components are worn down, and they require a lot more energy to run. As soon as you replace with a high-efficiency unit, you’ll notice a difference in your monthly bills.
When to replace
We recommend replacement in the following situations:
- Your air conditioner or heater is 10-15 years old and beginning to show signs of aging.
- You make a lot of costly repairs.
- A technician tells you that repairing your broken system would cost about half as much as replacing the unit entirely.
Utility rebates are available for new high-efficiency units. Remember that the results will be worth it, and the energy savings can offset the cost of early replacement. You’ll feel more comfortable for less with a new AC or heater!
