When is it Time to Replace Your Air Conditioner?

You might be wondering how old is too old for your central air conditioner

Upgrading your AC unit is one of the most impactful ways to reduce your

electricity bills in the summer months

Look for a minimum of a seasonal energy

efficiency ratio or SEER of 14

This unit can deliver as much as 37% more

efficiency than a unit with a 10 SEER rating

The useful life expectancy of a

central AC unit is approximately 15 to 17 years

If you're not ready to replace

your AC unit just yet, it's important to maintain the unit more regularly

At a minimum be sure to have the unit maintained once a year, before the hot

weather hits

Remember that older ACs use more

electricity than newer ones, so replacing a central air conditioning system and a

furnace that's older than 17 years old is strongly advised
