No One Likes to Spend Money on Old Systems - Why You Should Consider Replacing Your A/C Unit
All right, gut check time. Spending money on things like oil changes, computer cleanups, air conditioning maintenance, and other necessities sometimes just seems like an endless cycle of feeding the beasts in our lives. What kind of work is that air conditioner doing, though?
If you're like us, we take many things in life for granted. Out of sight, out of mind, right? Well, some of the things we like and use the most, well, simply get overlooked. Your older air conditioning system is probably one of those, but here are some things you might find interesting:
- In a recent study, Carrier found that San Angelo air conditioners run about 2400 hours/season
- Air conditioners, if they were cars, would run about 110,000 miles/year!
- Changing filters frequently can prolong your system by years
- Properly maintained air conditioners can last 20 years or longer
- The average lifespan of air conditioners in our area is about 13 years
- Old units could be costing you more money than you believe you're saving
Air Conditioners Today are Much More Efficient than Yesteryear
Proper maintenance can prolong your system and is highly recommended, but what if your unit is 10 or more years into service? What could a newer unit save you?:
- New units are designed to run 'as needed' instead of always-on
- Digital thermostats increase efficiency with monitoring
- New systems have instant peace of mind
- While older units freeze up and increase maintenance costs, new units actually cost less over time
- Properly installed new systems are sealed to prevent leaking and loss of $$$
With more than 20 years of experience, we've found that major repairs on older systems cost more than a replacement. If you haven't had your air conditioner checked lately, a second look from a professional could save you big and possibly even save a life!
