Should I repair or replace my system? Consider asking yourself a few basic questions:
- Am I operating an efficient system?
A new 13 SEER air conditioner or heat pump is much more efficient than the older 10 SEER models and will save you money on your electric bill. Are you getting the most for your money? For example; a 13 SEER can amount to a savings of about 23% compared to a 10 SEER. Just think you could possibly save up to 60% on your energy bills with a new, high-efficiency system. In a short period of time, your new high efficiency system could actually pay for itself.
- My system is only a few years old. Is it worth it to replace?
Your current system may be enormously inefficient by today’s energy efficiency standards. History illustrates the energy efficiency of an air conditioning system. In 1992, the typical SEER rating of units made were about 6.0. During 1992, the government established the minimum cooling efficiency standard for units installed, in new homes, at 10.0 SEER. All manufactured equipment on or after January 23, 2006, has a minimum efficiency standard set and mandated, by the U.S. Department of Energy.
- Does this mean I need to replace the coil too?
The standard set by the government addresses the entire air conditioning system, not a portion of the system.
- Does your system breakdown often, and are the chances good, it will break down again?
If you answered yes, this will mean an extra added expense for an emergency call or even worse, possible damage to the other components of your heating and cooling system.
