We know that this is one of the last questions that someone wants to ask at this point in the year. The temperatures are only going to get hotter so this is not the time when you want to face the possibility of being without a good AC system. That said, if the reality of the situation is that you do need a new air conditioner, we’d suggest getting the job taken care of quickly.
With this in mind, we want to do what we can to help you ease into this already intimidating stage. There are a lot of questions people have when facing a system replacement such as:
- “Do I really need to replace my AC?”
- “What type of system should I install? Do I have to stick with what I had before?”
- “Do I need a professional for the installation or can I do it myself to save money?”
We can answer these questions below and get your started on the next steps of replacing your AC so you can enjoy a cool home again.
“Do I really have to get a replacement for my air conditioner?”
If you aren’t entirely sure whether you need an air conditioner replaced (likely since your AC is still operational), here are some big warning signs to check for.
- Your AC is 15 or more years old: Even if your AC is still working somewhat reliably at this age, it can’t measure up to new levels of energy efficiency found in updated units.
- You need repairs for your system too frequently: Yearly repairs for three years in a row indicate your AC needs to retire.
- The repairs have become too costly: A bill that equals half or more of the cost of a new system is too expensive.
“What are my options for my next air conditioner?”
If you are considering getting a new air conditioner, you may be happy to know that you have more than one option. Modern technology has given us a much wider variety of systems than we used to have which means that, whether you have ducts or not, there is a system out there to meet your needs.
- Central air conditioners
- Heat pump mini splits
- Ductless mini splits
- Geothermal heat pumps
- VRF air conditioners
“Can I install the AC myself?”
Okay, so technically you can try to install your next air conditioner yourself to save money. We stand by the fact that this will end up costing you far more in the long run though. There is a lot that can go wrong with a DIY installation, especially if you don’t have the training and experience to get the job done.
