When to Upgrade Your Air Conditioner


Now that the weather is warming up, it’s time to consider upgrading your home’s air conditioner. This is when a little reminiscing is to your advantage. Think back to last spring and summer. Can you say that you were able to get comfortable with ease? If you can’t answer this question with a firm “yes,” then you need to consider repair at the very least. If this has been an ongoing issue over the course of several seasons, then we suggest considering a new ac installation in Denton, TX.

We know that you’re probably not jumping for joy at the thought of an upgrade. If you’ve ever had to upgrade one of your HVAC systems in the past, then you know that this process can be expensive, time-consuming, and complicated. We’ll help you make sure that process is as easy as possible. 

This Is When You Should Upgrade

There are signs that you should consider upgrading your air conditioner. Here are a few:

You’ve Had Your Air Conditioner for 10 to 15 Years

Your air conditioner is supposed to last you about 10 to 15 years. If you try to push the system past this, it’s likely you’ll start to notice inefficiency and other issues. The longer you try to push a system that’s past its prime, the more it will affect your personal comfort. When this time period comes around, we suggest thinking about an upgrade. The better prepared you are, the easier the process will be.

You’re Never Cool Enough

Are you having trouble getting your home as cool as possible? Maybe you’re not even struggling to get your home as cool as possible … you’re struggling to just get adequate cooling. Either scenario is bad and a sign you might need to upgrade. We can find you the perfect air conditioning system to upgrade to.

You Spend Too Much Money on Your Cooling

Have you noticed an uptick in the price of your home’s cooling? This is fine if you’ve started practices that would raise your energy bills. Things like longer run times or choosing cooler temperatures during a heatwave will do this. If you didn’t do anything like this, then inefficiency is wearing your AC system down. It’s time to upgrade.

Your Circuit Breaker Trips Often

Does your circuit breaker seem to trip all the time when you run your air conditioner? This can be a sign of a capacity issue. It’s possible for the needs of your home to outgrow the capacity of your air conditioner. This is especially true if you’ve had your air conditioner for a decade or more. This is when you should consider an upgrade. 

You’re Repairing Your Air Conditioner Often

Do you dread the warmth that spring and summer bring because you know it means a repair is inevitable? This shouldn’t be a constant in your life. If it is, then it’s definitely time to consider a replacement. We know that you might want to repair it indefinitely because it seems cheaper, but we promise that investing in a proper air conditioning unit is your best budgeting option.
