Have you had quite enough with your old air conditioner? If you are sinking money into your air conditioning unit year after year, perhaps it is time to consider buying a new one. That is, if you are calling your St. Paul air conditioner repair service several times a year, you may need a new a/c unit. But before you rush out and buy a new unit, take a few moment to consider these factors.

How Old Is It?

The age of your air conditioner plays a critical role when considering whether or not to have it replaced. The average lifespan of an air conditioning unit varies anywhere between 10 to 20 years. If you are spending too much money keeping your 10-year-old unit running, then it should be replaced. However, if your 15-year-old unit gives you little problems, then it probably has a few more years of service left in the tank. Keep in mind that if you do choose to have your a/c unit replaced, you will save money with one that is Energy Star rated.

Other Factors

Aside from the age of your air conditioning unit, there are other signs you need to have it replaced. If you notice your utility bills are unusually high, it could be because your air conditioner has to work too hard to maintain a comfortable temperature. In addition, and older unit will not be as efficient as a newer model. The choice is yours, but having an older unit replaced could save you several hundred dollars in energy costs over the year.
