The weather is heating up and Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc knows you want to make sure you keep comfortable all summer long. So, if your air conditioner isn’t running correctly, how do you know whether to make the investment toward repairs or purchasing a new system?

Here are some questions you should think about when establishing if you need a new air conditioner:

  • How old is my system?
    If your system is 10 to 15 years old, you may want to contemplate getting a replacement air conditioner. The technology and efficiencies in HVAC systems have continued to evolve in recent years and there some additional features that benefit your home and wallet.
  • How often are the breakdowns occurring?
    If your repairs have been few and far between, it may not make sense to take the plunge to a new system. However, if your system is requiring help on a more frequent basis, you are putting a lot of funds into fixing a system that may not be functioning properly.
  • Have you noticed an increase in your energy usage?
    It’s a good idea to monitor your monthly energy usage. And since temperatures do differ during the year, it’s a good idea to do yearly comparisons to get a more definite idea of how your energy usage has changed. If your system is working harder to accomplish the same results, it will result in higher energy expenditure.
  • Do you notice a change in your home comfort?
