How is an outdated AC unit costing you a small fortune?
AC units can be a lifesaver all throughout the year if they are working correctly. As AC units continue to evolve and become more efficient, older units began to show their wear and tear. The older the AC unit, the more you can expect to spend in repairs. Let’s look at a few facts:
Maintenance-You will have more maintenance requests throughout the year. Standard service calls can quickly add up. An older unit should be serviced about four times during the year. Depending on how often the AC unit has issues, you could experience continuously rising costs.
Coolant-Newer units operate under different standards. Many outdated AC units cannot even use the coolant they used to, as they are now outlawed. If your AC unit is more than 10 years old, it’s time to reevaluate whether or not you could stand to upgrade to a more efficient AC unit.
Costs-There are costs associated with running an older AC unit that goes beyond maintenance. Your energy bills will probably be significantly higher, especially during peak season. A more efficient AC unit runs less, is quieter and helps save money.
Service-It is a good idea to clean the coils on your unit once a year to keep them working correctly. Letting a professional team take care of the details can save you time, money, and alert you to any potential underlying issues.
