Yes, you read that title correctly! We here at Custom Air and Heat Inc. understand that an air conditioning replacement is often a costly investment for many people and many wonder, therefore, how an air conditioning replacement could actually be saving them money. In actuality, there are many instances when an AC replacement is in your best interest, both in terms of comfort and finances. Consider some of the following scenarios:
- If your AC is inefficient. If your AC is running inefficiently, then a newer AC unit can save you quite a bit on your utility bills. While the upfront cost can be hefty, a new AC unit can start to pay for itself over time in energy savings.
- If frequency and cost of repairs is significant. Do you feel like you are always looking for an AC contractor for repairs? Are you tired of shelling out hundreds of dollars on a regular basis to keep your AC humming along? There are different thresholds for different people, but if you have paid significant repair costs or needed multiple repairs in one season, you might want to consider putting your money towards an air conditioning replacement.
- When your AC is over 10 years old. If your air conditioner is between 8-10 years old, start saving now! This will be about the time that repairs and costs are more significant and preemptively replacing your AC unit can ensure you don’t end up with a large, surprise expenditure.
