Spring is here, and that means summer will be here in just a few short weeks. If your air conditioner is on its last legs, you may be in need of a new one. If you do, now is the time to replace the old unit. You still have several weeks to do so before the temperatures get too hot, which gives you time to schedule a replacement at your leisure. Contrast that with scrambling in the face of a more serious meltdown in the middle of summer, when you have to rush to get the new system in place.
An annual maintenance session is a good way to get your system checked by a professional. If it requires upgrades or repairs, the maintenance session will let you know, as well as helping to take of little problems like loose bolts and dirty filters that can rob your system of efficiency. Generally speaking, however, you system should meet one of the following conditions:
- Expired Warranty. With regular services, the system can last for many years beyond the expiration of the warranty. Once the warranty has expired, however, it bears close watching, and if it outlives either of the other two symptoms, it may be time to replace it.
- High Repair Bills. This can mean more than 2 repair bills in the same twelve-month period, or it can mean one single repair bills that costs more than you feel the system is worth.
- High Monthly Bills. Sometimes, there may not be anything specifically wrong with the system, but general wear and tear will lead to reduced efficiency, which will in turn lead to higher bills and an eventual breakdown.
