A well-maintained residential AC system normally lasts 10-15 years. Even with regularly scheduled system maintenance like the professionals at Shadrach Plumbing & Cooling can provide, parts wear out and technology improves. With a new residential AC installation, overall energy usage can be reduced, lowering your monthly utility costs. The skilled professionals at Shadrach can assess your current AC system to determine the specific issues and offer solutions that meet your budget.
Signs That You May Need a New AC Residential Installation
If you think a new AC installation maybe needed in your home, consider these key factors:
- The age of your system: If your system is more than 10 years old, you may want to consider a new residential AC installation to ensure you’re getting the highest level of energy efficiency in your home.
- You’ve been dealing with multiple repairs. If your AC system has been maintained, but still needing frequent repairs, you may save money over the long run with a new AC installation.
- Energy costs are going up. Energy bills may increase from time to time due to spikes in outdoor temperature, but if your costs have climbed while your overall usage has stayed relatively the same, you may benefit from a more energy-efficient new AC installation.
- Higher than normal amounts of dust. If you notice dust on surfaces, even after cleaning, you may have leaks in your ductwork, which affects the overall efficiency of your AC system as well as indoor air quality.
Homeowners have maintenance decisions to make all the time. Priorities have to align with timing and budget constraints. Sometimes, long-term savings factors into the consideration. Overall, deciding what to repair or possibly upgrade can be a dilemma.
