Many homeowners wait to replace their air conditioning units until they totally give out (whether that means the first time it kicks on in the spring or the hottest part of the summer). However, waiting to replace your AC unit until it’s too late can have a whole host of unintended consequences. Instead of waiting until you need it the most, should you consider replacing your old AC unit now?
Old and outdated AC units were not designed with energy and cost efficiency in mind. Instead, a number of them are huge energy suckers that can cause your monthly energy bills to be sky high. In addition, there are many rebates available for new units that can make them more cost-effective than repairing older units. By upgrading your old AC units, you can get more money in your pocket for performing other home improvements or just paying other monthly bills.
Improved Energy Efficiency
One of the best reasons to replace an old AC unit is for increased energy efficiency. New models are designed with energy efficiency as a priority, so they will cool your home without needing as much energy to do so. Beyond the savings you will experience firsthand, using less electricity will also help the environment. New AC units, on average, use 30-33% less energy than models made over a decade ago.
Use Modern Technology
How much have the computers and phones you’ve owned changed in the past 20 years? New AC units have changed just as much! Air conditioning technology has changed a great deal over the past few decades, and new units are better than ever at cooling the homes that they are attached to. New air conditioning units are quieter, offer more cooling options, have different settings, and are equipped with different functions. If you aren’t sure how much units have changed, feel free to chat with one of our specialists.
