Five Reasons to Upgrade Your Air Conditioning Now

February 22, 2020

It is hard to believe that winter is coming to an end, but you can’t ignore the sunlight staying longer or the birds morning chirping. Although the cold weather might not be completely gone, just yet, when the hot weather rushes in, it will rush in with vengeance. If you are considering upgrading your air conditioner, what are you waiting for? If you wait too long for your ac unit installation, you will be in a rush and probably sweating it!

1. You Have Time to Shop Around

Unfortunately, many people wait until they absolutely have to, to replace their air conditioning unit. When you wait until you are forced, that usually means you will make a quick and rash decision. If you start looking for your new air conditioner now, you can take the time to shop around, get estimates, and find the perfect unit for both your budget and your needs.

2. An Emergency AC Installation is a Whole lot More Expensive

If you wait until your air conditioner quits to replace it, it will probably require an emergency install. South Carolina has the type of heat that you don’t have time to sit around and wait for an appointment when your air conditioning doesn’t work. Paying for after hour appointments or weekends, can cost a whole lot more than if you preemptively upgrade your air conditioning unit now. If you know it is on its way out, don’t wait!

3. You’ll Save Energy Costs

Over the past decade, HVAC technology has come a long way. Better and more energy efficient models can help to reduce your energy costs. Even if you think you might be able to get some more time out of your current air conditioning unit, you might end up paying a whole lot more in energy costs. If you upgrade now, the savings will add up quickly, and end up paying for a lot of the cost of an ac unit installation.

4. AC Repair Can be Expensive!

If you have an air conditioner that needs repair and is more than seven years old, it is probably more cost-effective to replace it than to repair it. If you pay a lot of money to have it repaired, you are probably only putting a bandaid on the situation. Sometimes you have to rip the band aid off, and although it is painful, in the long run it is always a necessary thing to do! If your air conditioner needs to be repaired, be realistic about how much longer it will last before putting the money out.

5. It Might Not be All that you Need

If you recently remodeled or are just finding that no matter how hard you run your air conditioning, it just isn’t able to keep up, then it might be time to upgrade. Running your air conditioner around the clock is not good for your energy costs. And it will also eventually lead to a costly repair. It might be better to upgrade to a system that will keep your home tepid, and also one that won’t waste so much energy in the process!

Although upgrading your air conditioning system might be a significant investment, it is one investment that will pay off in the long run. Before you just assume that your air conditioner will last one more season, it is a good idea to have the professionals of Custom Climate evaluate it to make sure that it isn’t a better idea to replace it now while you have lots of time to shop around.
