When Should You Replace Your Air Conditioner?

We’re in the full swing of summer and life around Sacramento is heating up. With normal temperatures pushing into the 90s, your air conditioner is probably seeing heavier use. When it comes to keeping your family cool during the summer, you want to make sure the air conditioner is functioning properly and efficiently. If your air conditioner falls into one of these categories, you may want to consider replacing it.

Frequent Repairs

If your air conditioner is continually breaking down, you could be spending far too much money on repairs. When an AC system gets older or hasn’t been maintained, it could require regular repairs. Over time, this can cost you. It could be time to replace the entire system as opposed to perpetually replacing parts on the old system. Maki will work with you to find a system that fits your needs, and ensure your satisfaction with the final product.

AC Inefficiency

It’s every homeowner’s worst nightmare. After suffering through busy traffic in 100 degree weather, you arrive home only to find your air conditioning system barely hanging on. It’s making weird noises and barely pushing any air out of the vents. On top of that, your last month’s energy bill was through the roof. When your AC is performing poorly, it costs you comfort and money. If repair isn’t an option, looking into a new system can fix inefficiency issues.

Old Air Conditioner

If your AC system is 12 years old or older, it’s worth getting a Maki AC inspection to see how the system is performing. With regular maintenance, upkeep, and optimum conditions, some air conditioners can last beyond the 12 year mark. Because the Sacramento area sees various temperature extremes, most air conditioners struggle to make it beyond 12-15 effective years. If your system is old an underperforming, schedule a consultation and we’ll come check it out. We can help answer any questions about upgrades and what opportunities there are for your system.
