The weather is warming up in Ohio but hasn’t reached summer swelter yet. Mild temps provide a great opportunity to prepare for the heat by having your cooling system checked out by a professional like Allied Services, Inc. We can provide an annual tune-up to address any possible issues with your cooling system before the real heat sets in. Our team can also assess whether or not your system is in need of a full replacement. If you think your system might be on its last legs, consider these warning signs before it’s too late.
Your Bills Are Sky HighToday’s AC units use 30-50 percent less energy than units manufactured over ten years ago. The inefficiency of older units causes utility bills to increase, so you’ll know your unit is losing efficiency as your bills go up. Replacing an air conditioner that’s just ten years old can reduce your energy costs by 20 to 40 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
Your Home Isn’t Cool Enough
If your cooling system is not keeping up with the demand of keeping you comfortable in your home, it could be because it is need of regular maintenance. However, if you have maintained your system properly and a tune-up does not solve the problem, it could be time to replace. Your unit could be sized incorrectly and might be too small for your home. A professional can assess if you need a new system that properly fits your home and can keep up with your cooling needs.
You Know Your Repairman Too Well
While it is prudent to have your system serviced annually, it is not a good sign if you are calling for repairs several times each year. The cost of repairs can add up, so compare the cost of repairing the unit with the cost of a replacement, factoring in the energy savings you’ll probably enjoy. You may find that a brand new air conditioner actually puts you ahead.
If you think it could be time for a new cooling system, don’t wait until your system dies on the summer’s hottest day to look into replacement.
