One rule of thumb that our experts at Temp Air System Inc tell homeowners is that if your repairs equate to over 50 percent of the cost of your air conditioner, it’s time for a replacement. Exchanging your air conditioner extends you a renewed sense of ease in your home – here are a few things to search for to finalize your replacement decision:
Age: the normal life span for an air conditioner is 10 to 12 years, so if you are reaching that amount of use from your system or note that it is sputtering more often, replacement might be forthcoming. The more modern the system, the better it performs.
Filters: every time your air conditioner turns on, it accrues dirt and particles that can accumulate over time. While replacing filters every three months is essential to preserving your system clean and functioning smoothly, eventually the filters will demand full replacement, as well.
