Reasons You May Need a New Air Conditioner
Think that air conditioning is an optional luxury? Then imagine facing down a week or more of boiling hot summer days without it! Your air conditioner does an essential job to ensure your house remains comfortable and even safe during the hottest months of the year.
Air conditioners do a tough job, day-in-and-day-out. However, they aren’t built to last forever. While you can reasonably expect to get more than a decade of reliable service form your air conditioning unit, the time will come when it requires replacement, for one reason or another.
Vertex Mechanical is one of the main Lancaster County air conditioner installation teams. Here are the most common reasons homeowners choose to upgrade their air conditioning:
- The air conditioner is broken and will cost too much to fix — In cases like this, air conditioning repair
is so costly that the homeowners opt to put the money towards a down payment on a new system instead.
- The air conditioner keeps having minor issues — In cases like this, the air conditioning system needs continual maintenance, which prevents it from working dependably. The homeowners feel like they can no longer rely on the system to keep them cool and comfortable.
- The air conditioner uses the soon-to-be-banned refrigerant R-22 — A common reason that homeowners are upgrading their systems is to get caught up with the government ban on R-22 refrigerant, the main refrigerant used in older systems. Learn more about the R-22 ban right here.
- The air conditioner is energy inefficient — Older air conditioners are far less energy efficient than today’s modern systems. If you have an inefficient system, you pay for it every month when your energy bill comes in the mail. Depending on how inefficient your system is, an upgrade can pay for itself in a matter of years.
