After about 16 – 20 years, it’s likely time to replace your air conditioning unit. This is the typical lifespan of ac units made today, so even if you have a year or two to go, reach out to the ac replacement specialists at Torch Service Company.
When your ac unit ages, there will be parts that start failing that need repair and replacement. As soon as the ac or cooling unit begins to break down, you will be paying for service calls and labor, on top of parts that need to be repaired. These costs add up over time, so you will need to factor in costs over the long run. If the repairs become a significant percentage of what the new ac unit will cost, making the switch to a full air conditioning replacement will be a more financially sound decision.
Older ac unit models are not as energy-efficient as newer ones. You will be wasting energy and paying more on your cooling bills the longer you have the unit. High-efficiency ac systems can pay off in a large way when it comes to energy savings over time.
