Is It Time to Replace Your Air Conditioning System?

HVAC Services

Air conditioning is a must for summers in Littleton, CO, but no air conditioner will last forever. There will come a time when you will need to replace your own AC with a newer model, and that time shouldn’t be when your current system completely breaks down. Fortunately, it’s not that difficult to know when to replace an air conditioner. All you need is to look for the following signs and give Littleton Heating and Air Conditioning a call when the time has come.

1. Higher Utility Bills

One good way to know if you need a new air conditioner is to look at your monthly utility bills. If they’ve been higher than usual lately, it could be due to an air conditioner that is working harder than it should. It uses more energy, which costs you more every month. The issue will only get worse, so contact Littleton Heating and Air Conditioning about getting a replacement. It will save you money in the long run.

2. Frequent Repairs

If you find that your air conditioner breaks down and requires repairs frequently, it’s almost certain that you will need to buy an upgrade soon. Buying a new air conditioner and having it installed is expensive, but so is having a technician come to your home every few months.

3. Old Age

While there’s no reason why an older air conditioner can’t still do its job, most air conditioners are only meant to last between 10 and 15 years. Even if you follow a strict maintenance schedule and keep your AC running smoothly every summer, nothing lasts forever. Eventually, your old air conditioner will start to lose efficiency and require more frequent repairs. If you have an air conditioner that is over 10 years old, it’s best to look into an upgrade before it stops working completely in the middle of the summer.
