If you’re looking for ways to save money on cooling costs without keeping your air conditioner off for the rest of the season, replacing your older system is the way to do it. We know that you may be wondering how spending money can help you to save it, but there are several ways your older air conditioner is probably costing you.
Repairs may not be worth it
If you spend money on repairs for your air conditioner time and time again, you’re just putting temporary patches on a system that is probably done for. The parts are all designed to work with one another, so a new part or a small repair might not do the trick if you want to keep the air conditioner in good shape. The new part may fix the problem right now, but the system might only fail again sometime soon, especially if it is over 10 years old. Furthermore, the repair won’t make the air conditioner run very efficiently.
The efficiency rating has suffered over time
As time goes on, standard wear and tear won’t affect your air conditioner’s levels of efficiency much within its lifespan, especially with regular professional maintenance. However, after about ten years, a thorough cleaning and tune-up still cannot help to restore any efficiency to the system.
Newly manufactured systems have strict federal requirements for efficiency, so a brand new system that is installed properly and is the right size for your home should cost a lot less money to run than your older, worn down system. Trane XL comfort systems are our recommendation for anyone looking to upgrade to a system that could potentially save some homeowners hundreds of dollars a year.
