Summer is only about to get hotter in the weeks to come. The question is: are you ready to beat the heat? Is your air conditioner up for the challenge? If you have an old unit with efficiency issues, you probably aren’t. You might be wondering how you would know when it’s time to start shopping for a new system. In this article, we’ll give you some insights.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your trusted HVAC company in Vadnais Heights MN. We are an authorized distributor of Lennox air conditioners, which are known worldwide for their energy efficiency.

Signs of a Failing AC

Your air conditioner is responsible for almost half of your household energy consumption. But if you are dealing with an AC that’s about ten years old or more, it is likely even less efficient. Rising utility bills without a parallel increase in your AC use could mean it is time for you to consider upgrading to a newer model with better a efficiency rating.

Do you notice a significant reduction in your AC’s ability to cool your home and its failure to maintain the right temperature? Chances are, you’re working with a deteriorating system. Wear and tear is likely the reason why your AC is having a hard time delivering cool air throughout your home.

Repair frequency and costs are other factors to look into. As your AC gets older, it works with aging parts, requiring frequent repairs. Old air conditioners often experience persistent repairs and parts replacement. To make things even more challenging, parts become difficult to source as the unit gets older. Of course, you also need to factor in the rising labor costs as the work hours increase.
