The very abbreviated answer? As soon as you realize you need to. Well, that was not much help, was it? Of course, you know that you can expect a lot more than that type of answer from the pros here at Goettl Air Conditioning Las Vegas. The reason why such a simple response does not really satisfy in this situation is that this simply is not a simple question! There are a lot of factors that you’ll have to consider when it comes to replacing your AC.
Because this is a big investment for most homeowners, representing a considerable expense, it really behooves you to go ahead and think about the big picture. No single factor is really going to be a deciding factor on its own—other than a complete breakdown, but you’ll hopefully have a replacement system in place well before that situation ever develops. So read on, and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions that you may have.
Yes, You Want to Think About Age
Age is very important when you are thinking about replacing your air conditioning system for any reason. However, it is not the deciding factor that some homeowners may expect. Yes, an older system is more likely to be replaced than a newer system, but generally not solely due to age. Additionally, there are plenty of instances in which replacing a newer system is a good idea.
So how should you use age to inform the decision to replace your air conditioning system? Keep it in mind when considering the following factors, as well. That is the way to arrive at a big picture understanding of your AC service needs, and that is the only way in which you can be certain that you’re making the right decision for your comfort and your system.
You Want an Efficient Performance, Right?
Efficiency is a major factor in terms of replacing an air conditioning system, and it is important in terms of both newer and older systems. Old systems with low-efficiency ratings that were the norm at the time of manufacture are prime candidates for replacement. Older systems that just are not capable of working as efficiently as they once did are, too.
But newer systems may also be replaced if higher efficiency is a major priority. Less efficient systems tend to be cheaper, so you may have settled for less efficiency at the time of purchase due to budgetary constraints. You may also have inherited a fairly low-efficiency system when you purchased your home. In either case, if you can comfortably afford to, replacing your system to boost efficiency now can benefit you financially in the long run.
You DEFINITELY Want Reliability
You are going to need AC repair in Las Vegas at some point. That is totally normal. What isn’t normal, nor acceptable, is the need for frequent repairs. If your system is not that reliable and it is quite old, then the decision to replace is kind of an easy one to make.
If you have a newer system that is out of warranty, that decision is tougher. However, there is only so much money that you should funnel into a system of any age. A very major repair, or frequent need for smaller repairs, may not be justifiable even if your system is not that old. Working with our trustworthy technicians will ensure that you make an informed decision that will benefit you the most.
G-O-E-T-T-L it’ll keep you cool but it’s hard to spell.
