Air Conditioner Replacement: 7 Smart Reasons to Quit Putting It Off
Your air conditioner has started to develop problems, and now you’re facing the tough decision: Nurse it through the coming cooling season and risk additional repair costs, or just go ahead and buy a replacement. Actually, going the replacement route has a number of benefits. There’s good reason to quit delaying your replacement. Take a look:
1. Reduced utility bills: You will start enjoying payback almost immediately, because your energy bills will take a plunge. Your old system may have had a seasonal energy efficiency ratio as low as 6. Your new system will probably have a SEER of 14 or higher. That translates to significant savings.
2. Trouble-free service: Instead of contending with breakdowns and service calls, you can relax and enjoy the summer in your comfortably cool home.
3. A solid warranty: Many systems today come with 10-year warranties. That alone helps to ensure peace of mind. And if you’re planning to put your home on the market, a warranty can be a selling point.
4. A new system provides more comfort: Replacing an old system with a unit that has advanced technology not only boosts savings, but also provides a higher level of comfort. Today’s units are more capable than ever before of removing humidity from the air.
5. Your air quality will improve: There is less potential for mold with a new A/C system, as well as a lower probability of getting indoor pollutants.
6. Better refrigerant: Today’s cooling system use an environmentally friendly coolant, as opposed to the ozone-depleting R-22 refrigerant in older systems.
7.Tax credits: Buy a high-efficiency air conditioner this year, and you may qualify for a $300 tax credit. Combine the tax credit with the increased savings, and buying now makes a lot of sense. (This also applies to qualified systems purchased on 2012.)
