3 Ways an Old Air Conditioning System Can Cost You

No one likes to think about replacing their air conditioner. It’s an expensive and cumbersome process and as long as your existing AC unit still functions, it might seem like a waste to jut replace it. Unfortunately, you may be losing money by leaving your old air conditioner in place, and the longer you let it stay – especially with summer looming close – the more money it’s likely to pull from your wallet.  Here in Fairview, air conditioning repair services can also perform replacement in most cases. Here are 3 ways an old air conditioning system can cost you.

  • General inefficiency
    As your air conditioner gets older, it experiences a lot of wear and tear. Individual components start to wear down, bolts become loose, filters lose their effectiveness and the system as a whole has to work harder to do its jobs. You can curtail this process with regular maintenance, but sooner or later every system succumbs to time and your air conditioner is no different.
  • Repairs
    Older air conditioners tend to suffer from larger and more expensive repairs, in keeping with its advancing age and general wear on the system. If you’re experiencing an unusual number of repairs or your system suffers a catastrophic breakdown, it’s going to cost a great deal. Eventually, you’ll be throwing good money after bad, requiring a replacement.
  • Higher humidity and dust content
    Air conditioners do more than just cool the air. They can help filter dust and dirt out of the air, and their act as a de facto de-humidifier in many cases as well. Are you air conditioner ages, its ability to perform these functions will diminish, leading to higher humidity and decreased quality of air.
