Is It Time To Replace Your AC?

You don’t want to do battle with your air conditioner all summer, do you? We’d say the answer is probably no! After all, this time of year in Fresno is when you need this system the most. However, this time of the year is also the one that can put the most strain on this system and end up being “the straw that breaks the camel’s back.”

Translation: the height of summer is when most air conditioners give out. But remember that you don’t want to be without your AC! How can you get your AC replacement in Fresno before your system completely stops working? Watch out for these warning signs for a start!

4 Warning Signs That Your AC Needs to Be Replaced

If your AC is on its last leg, you need to get the system replaced quickly. Watch out for these indicators that it is time to upgrade.

  • The system is 10-15 years old: Age matters a lot when it comes to your air conditioner. You will need to check on the age of your AC because, when it starts to falter, it can be the defining factor that tells you if you need a repair or replacement.
  • You’ve never gotten the system maintained: We hate to tell you this but an air conditioner that has never been maintained is one that will last a vastly shorter number of years than one that gets maintenance each year. If you have a system that is nearing 10 years old and has never been maintained, it is much more likely that it will need to be replaced.
  • You need repairs frequently: Repairs are a normal thing for your AC to need throughout its lifespan. The question is how often the repairs are actually needed. If you need repairs on a yearly basis, or even more often than that, it needs to be replaced before it breaks down completely.
  • Repair costs have become too high: Another sign that your AC may need to retire is the cost of those repairs. If the bill that you get for an AC repair could easily pay for half of a new system then it is better to invest in the new system instead.
