Sometimes it makes more sense to replace your Las Vegas, NV, home’s air conditioner than try to repair it. Here are four signs that it’s time to replace it.
1. Your Electric Bill Keeps Skyrocketing
Cooling costs could account for almost half of your monthly electric bill during the summer. If your air conditioner is not energy-efficient or is getting older, your bill could keep increasing dramatically. Replacing your system will lower your electric bill by 20% or more and improve your comfort.
2. Your System Frequently Breaks Down
If your air conditioner seems like it spends more time breaking down than running, it is time to replace it. It is smarter to use the money you would spend on repairing a worn-out system towards a new one that’s covered by a manufacturer’s parts warranty.
3. Your AC Unit is More than 12-15 Years Old
Today’s central air conditioners are required to be more energy-efficient than those manufactured a decade or more ago. The U.S. Department of Energy requires split-system and single-package air conditioners to have a minimum SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) of 14 in southwestern states like Nevada. If you purchase a 15 SEER system, you could be eligible for a PowerShift rebate.
4. Your Home is Never Cool Enough
An air conditioner that is too small for your home or is reaching the end of its useful lifespan may not be able to keep up with the demand for cooled air. When you purchase a new system, it will be properly sized to meet your home’s cooling demand based on a variety of variables specific to your home. Your new system will run more efficiently and keep your home more comfortable.
