We often take our cool and comfortable home environment for granted until something happens to change it. If you a/c unit is aging or you are questioning its performing like it should, you may be wondering if it is time for a new unit. When it comes to air conditioning replacement Chino CA HVAC experts recommend the following tips to
help you decide if it is time to replace your a/c unit.
If you have been told your air conditioning unit needs costly repairs you may be wondering if it is worth fixing or not. In this situation, many HVAC experts recommend using the 5,000 rule. This means you take the age of your equipment and multiply it by the cost to repair it. If the resulting digit is larger than $5,000, a replacement would likely be a better option in your situation. For example, if you have been quoted a $500 repair cost and your a/c unit is 12 years old, it would be better to replace it.
Another factor to consider is how energy efficient your a/c unit is. Energy Star recommends homeowners replace their a/c units if they are over 10 years of age. This is due to recent and significant advances in technology that have improved the energy efficiency of most a/c units. In fact, replacing the unit will usually cause a noticeable reduction in your energy bills each month. If your energy bills seem high compared to previous years or compared with your neighbor’s bills, it may be worth it to go ahead and replace your a/c unit.
