When should I replace my air conditioning system?
A/C System Energy Efficiency
The lifespan of an A/C system is about 10-15 years. If your air conditioning unit is close to 10 years or older you may want to consider replacing it with a more efficient unit instead of opting for costly repairs.
According to energy.gov if your A/C system is only 10 years old, you’ll save 20%-40% of your energy costs by replacing it with an efficient model.
Maybe the A/C system you purchased 10 years ago was a 12-14 seer and now it’s down to a 9-10 seer which is the equivalent of a window unit.
Running an older, inefficient air conditioning system costs more money. When replacing your air conditioning unit remember, the higher the seer rating the more money you save in the long run.
HVAC manufacturers offer limited warranty terms that may last 5 to 10 years on average.
Warranties usually insist on annual maintenance of the HVAC system. This prevents the manufacturer from making covered repairs or replacement that could easily have been avoided with regular visits by a professional.
If you neglect to have this maintenance done, the warranty is likely to be void. If your air conditioning system is 10 years or older, the warranty grace period has probably expired.
