A new air conditioner is an important investment for homeowners. However, sometimes it can be difficult to determine when it's the right time to upgrade. While a new unit can be expensive, it can actually save you money. Here's why:
New = More Efficient
Older AC units have a lower efficiency rating (SEER). The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient the unit is. Today, the highest SEER rating is 25 while 15 years ago it was 18. So if you have an older unit, it may not be running as efficient and needs more energy to cool the air.
New = Reduced Repairs
While regular maintenance can help your AC run more efficiently and improve the lifespan, older units inevitably need more care and repairs than a newer unit. So, if your electricity bills are getting higher and you're constantly calling for repairs, it's time to upgrade to a newer and more efficient AC.
New = Incentives
Your new system may qualify for rebates and other discounts. Regardless if you qualify for certain incentives, a more energy efficient unit will save you money over time. Utility and manufacture's rebates can also depend on the SEER rating. The higher it is, the more you can save.
Here are some additional benefits of a new AC:
Higher energy efficiency and better air flow
Less noise compared to older units
They can be controlled by an advanced thermostat that can often be controlled by a smartphone.
Reduce potentially harmful air particles and odors from the air when combined with an air filtration and purification system.
