Whatever the make or model, we will do what it takes to get it blowing cool, comfortable air. Even the best models of air conditioners will need to be replaced over time. You depend on a functioning air conditioner to handle the Texas summer heat. Sometimes, the best choice for your budget and peace of mind will be to buy a new unit.

How Old Is Your Air Conditioner?

If your air conditioner is more than a decade old, it is probably time to replace it. With each season, your AC loses some of its power and efficiency due to normal wear and tear. While an annual tune-up can extend the unit’s usable life, it cannot do miracles. The good news is that cooling technology improves with each season. The new air conditioner that you install today will be more efficient and run quieter than your current model. You may also find that you have some new cooling options to choose from, like heat pumps, geothermal systems, or ductless systems.

Are You New to Your Home?

A new air conditioner is a great investment in your new house. It may be that the previous homeowner kept careful records of the unit’s maintenance and upkeep, but it may also be the case that you have little idea of the unit’s age. Replacing the air conditioner as you move means that you can have confidence that the unit will perform as it should. It is one less thing to worry about as you adjust to a new residence.

How Often Do You Need to Repair Your AC?

As a homeowner, you can expect the occasional repair call for your air conditioner. However, if you find that you are repairing the unit several times a season, then it may make sense to replace it. A new unit will help to avoid annoying interruptions.
