The weather is heating up and Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. realizes you want to make sure you stay content all summer long. So, if your air conditioner isn’t running well, how do you know whether to make the investment toward repairs or purchasing a new system?

Here are some questions you should consider when determining if you need a new air conditioner:

  • How old is my system?
    If your system is 10 to 15 years old, you may prefer to think about investing in a replacement air conditioner. The technology and efficiencies in HVAC systems have continued to develop in recent years and there many additional features that benefit your home and wallet.
  • How often are the breakdowns occurring?
    If your repairs have been infrequent, 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 considerable funds into fixing a system that may not be operating properly.
  • Have you noticed an increase in your energy usage?
    It’s a good idea to keep an eye on your monthly energy usage. And since temperatures do vary throughout the year, it’s a good idea to do once a year comparisons to get a more accurate 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 consumption.
