BILL’S CORNER Q/A: Should you replace your old air conditioning system?

Posted on by Sunrise Mechanical Inc

SM BILLS CORNERQ: I have been asked: Why you should replace your old air conditioning system if it is working instead of waiting until it breaks down? 

A: There are several reasons to upgrade your system now. Your air conditioning system plays a very important role in your life. It is the largest appliance in your home and it’s not only for your comfort, but it is also for your health and safety especially here in Arizona. It is important to keep your system running as efficiently as possible. It is an investment for you and your home.

Relate your air conditioning system to your vehicle. The system is over 10 years old and has the equivalent of 100,000 miles on it. It has worked very hard for you and your family. The prices are increasing every year so the longer you wait the higher the price for system replacement. It has older technology and is no longer as efficient. When you upgrade your system you gain the benefits of new technology, higher efficiency and new warranties. This means savings of 30-40% on your utility bills, savings on ac repairs, and better operating systems.

Also R22 is the refrigerant your current system uses and it is no longer being manufactured. This means the supply of R22 is dwindling and becoming more expensive. Even major refrigerant components for your system have to be ordered and can take up to 6 weeks to arrive if they are even available. And repairs will be costly. The system could possibly be non-operational while waiting for a specific part. This could happen at the worst time of the year when we experience 115 plus degrees. You do not want to be a victim of a broken unit in the hottest part of the summer. You will want the peace of mind that you have a new functional, efficient system at home.
