Is It Time to Upgrade to a New Air Conditioner?

August 5, 2019

The skilled technicians at Obermanns specialize in keeping the air conditioner at your Jackson home running at its best. When something goes wrong, they can diagnose the problem and make it right, no matter the make or model. Yet, even the best air conditioning units will need to be replaced eventually. Here are some questions to ask when you are making that important decision.

How Much Is Your Current Unit Costing You?

An aging air conditioner brings additional costs to your home comfort. Even with annual maintenance, your air conditioner will lose some of its power and efficiency with normal wear and tear. It will use more energy to supply your home with the cool air it needs. This will increase your utility bills. If you are spending more than you expected on cooling costs, it may be time for a new unit.

How Well Is Your Current Unit Running?

The longer your air conditioner runs, the more problems it is going to have. After a few seasons, you can expect the occasional repair call. However, older units may require several repair calls in a single season. This is really inconvenient, and it can end up costing you a lot. If the unit keeps breaking down, it may be time to turn a repair call into an installation appointment.

How Old Is Your Current Unit?

Even if your air conditioner seems to be running well, you may want to buy a new one if it is more than a decade old. Home cooling technology improves with every season. The new air conditioner you install will use less electricity and have quieter operation. In addition, you will have a new unit that is under warranty rather than an aging unit with issues.
