While it may seem hard to believe, there are still some hot days ahead before the cold of winter arrives. This makes it important that your central air conditioning system is in proper working order to keep you and your family cool during the coming weeks, and to have your system replaced if it is on its last legs. Here are a few signs you can be on the lookout for indicating that it might be time to replace your central AC.
Your AC Requires Costly Repairs
One of the worst things that can happen during the dead of summer is for your AC to break down on you. However, if your system does stop working, you will need to decide if it is worth it to have your AC repaired, or if you should have it replaced. Ultimately, this will depend on the scope of repairs needed, as well as on the age of your system. If your air conditioner is 10 or 15 years old, it may be to your advantage to replace it rather than have it repaired. Additionally, no matter the age of your central AC, if something costly, such as the compressor, needs replacing, you would be better off to replace the entire system.
You Can’t Get Comfortable
Even when temperatures soar outside, your central air conditioning system should be able to keep your home relatively cool. However, if you and your family cannot seem to get comfortable no matter how often you adjust your thermostat, then it is likely that your system is failing. In this situation, it is important that you have your central AC replaced before it breaks down on you altogether.
During these hot days, it is important that you take a moment to make sure that your central air conditioner is working properly, and that you have it repaired or replaced if it shows any signs of trouble.
