Investing in a new air conditioning system can be quite expensive. Therefore, it’s understandable if you try to put it off for as long as possible. However, the day will come when getting a new system will be the most logical and best available option. Here are six signs that it’s time for you to invest in a new AC system for your home in Burleson, TX:
Electric Bill is Constantly Increasing
When you haven’t used your HVAC system in a while and start to use it again, you can expect an increase in your electric bill. As time passes, you should notice an average cost of what it takes to operate your HVAC system. However, if the electric bill continues to increase, it could be an indication that the system is using more energy to operate and that it’s time to invest in a new one. We carry and install a wide selection of the most energy-efficient AC systems available.
You Schedule Frequent Air Conditioner Repairs
In today’s market, HVAC service technicians are friendly and perhaps more conversational than in the past. That’s because they value you as a customer and want to establish a relationship with you. However, if you know all our service technicians’ names and the names of their children because they have been to your house so many times to repair your air conditioner, it’s probably time for a new AC system.
AC System Never Shuts Off
It’s normal for your air conditioning system to run more on days when the temperature is hotter than usual. However, if your air conditioning system runs constantly without shutting off, it could be an indication that there’s a problem with the compressor. You’ll save money by replacing the old air conditioning system instead of paying costly repairs and high energy bills from a unit that’s not working correctly.
Strange Noises Coming From the AC System
Your AC system may sound like a locomotive engine trying to start. If this isn’t the first time you’ve heard strange noises coming from the system, you can no longer deny the fact that it’s not operating at peak performance. Before it stops working completely, consider replacing it. The longer you wait, the worse the problem will get. As a result, the higher the repair costs.
AC System Doesn’t Blow Cold Air
If your AC system only blows cool air early in the mornings before the sun comes up and late in the evening after the sun goes down, there’s something wrong. The main time that you need your air conditioning system to work is when the sun is brightly shining during the hottest portion of the day. If your AC system isn’t blowing cold air when you need it, it’s probably time to invest in a new unit.
You’re Planning to Sell Your Home
You may have gotten used to calling a service technician every few months to troubleshoot your air conditioning system or paying a little more for energy. However, if you’re planning to sell your home, do yourself and the potential new owners a favor and replace the air conditioning system. You’ll have peace of mind knowing the system will operate at peak performance, and the new owners will appreciate it. A new AC system can also help sell your home faster.
