The snow has melted, and the long slow days of summer are fast approaching.
From Wellington, Estes Park, Mead, to Boulder—air conditioner replacement is on the minds of many.
As you cut back the foliage around the condenser, dust off the vents, shut down the furnace and start up your air conditioner, you may be wondering if it’s time to send the old AC unit to AC heaven and get a new one.
Here is what to think about:
Is your current AC unit quiet?
A quiet unit is a healthy unit. If your AC only makes the typically timed hum of a healthy machine, it’s probably a sure sign that all is well. If it’s noisy, or not making any noise at all, it’s possible that something is wrong.
If the noise level is important to you, our new units are famously quiet.
Is the Warranty up?
Many air conditioners have a warranty that is meant to last the lifetime of the unit. If yours is well past its warranty, it may be time to reconsider and upgrade. Warranties should last around ten years.
What is the impact on your electric bill?
In the summer months, your cooling bill can be as much as 60 to 70% of your heating bill. If it is more than this, it is probably time to consider replacing it with something more efficient. New units are always more efficient and use energy better than their older counterparts, and new thermostats can often regulate temperature better too!
Is the unit you have is too big or too small?
If your unit came with the house, then you probably didn’t have a lot of say in what it was originally for. If you have found that it makes the house too cold, you only need it for a couple of rooms, or—it’s too small.
IMS has better-sized options that can save you money.
ls your machine is in disrepair?
This last question is the most obvious, but if your air conditioner is simply not working properly, no matter how many times you repair it, it may be time to replace it and move on to something better.
