Is Now the Time to Replace My Air Conditioner?

While the weather around here is not anywhere near frigid just yet, we’re betting that you’ve moved away from your air conditioning system in favor of your heater by now. With temperatures in the upper 50’s to mid 60’s for the time being, there’s really no reason to still be running your air conditioner. The weather is only getting cooler from here on out, at least until we move into spring, so it’s a safe bet that you’ll find yourself running back to your AC any time soon. With that in mind, this is actually a great time to go about replacing your air conditioner in Kingsburg, CA. If you think it may be time for an AC replacement, read on and remember to schedule your service with the pros at Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning.

When to Consider an AC Replacement

We know that replacing one’s air conditioner is not exactly the most exciting way in which to spend one’s money. However, it is something that we’ll all have to do eventually. You really don’t want to wait for your air conditioner to give out on you entirely before doing so, either. This is most likely to happen during the hottest time of the year, when you need your AC the most. A preemptive replacement is best, so consider the following.

  • Your system’s age will certainly play a role in determining if you take the initiative to replace it. If your system is approaching the end of its expected lifespan, or has already surpassed it, you may want to consider replacing it now. It may be living on borrowed time as it is.
  • Frequency of repair needs should also be taken into account. Remember, just because your AC can be repaired does not mean that it should be repaired. If you are sick of pumping money into an unreliable air conditioner, then you can offset the initial replacement cost with reduced repair needs over time.
  • Your overall satisfaction with your cooling system should also influence this decision. If you simply don’t care for an AC that you inherited, for instance, it is perfectly reasonable to replace it with one of your own choosing. You are going to use your AC a lot throughout the years. Make sure that you are satisfied in doing so.
