The lifespan of a central air conditioning unit can last 15 to 20 years. This is of course if it does not encounter any problem and if it has been regularly maintained. However, there are instances when replacing it is better than having it repaired. How do you know when its time to get it replaced? Here are the signs:
It’s over 10 years old
Most air conditioning units were made to last for a maximum of 10 years. This is the most number of years it can serve you efficiently. That is given the fact that you are performing regular maintenance on it. Thus, if your AC starts to break because it is more than 10 years, then it is high time you do give it a rest.

Frequent need for repair
Don’t immediately take repair services as a bad thing, especially if it’s really necessary. But if your unit has been needing repair frequently, you better think it through.
If it’s experiencing the same problem then it may do need to be replaced. Save money by buying a new one, otherwise be prepared to spend more due to repairs and higher power bills due to its inefficient cooling system.
So what’s your choice?
Higher power bills
If you are using your AC but significantly felt an increase with your power bills, then consider bringing it to an aircon technician. If after the repair has been performed and it is still bringing you higher power bills, then it’s evident that you need a new unit.
You’ll do yourself a favour by buying a new one because not only will it decrease your power bill but it will also give you more comfort and convenience.
Extreme humidity levels at home
Air conditioners help to control and balance the humidity in your home. A broken unit can cause moisture accumulation on your windows. If this happens, your home will feel sticky because the humidity level is high. However, if the unit malfunctions then mould problems will arise. Both of which may lead to a very unhealthy environment for your family.
Avoid sickness by setting the right humidity level for your home. Call us for us to properly evaluate your unit.
Your home got bigger
