Should You Replace Your Air Conditioner This Late in the Year?

Summer is over, and heating season is almost here. Most homeowners are turning off their air conditioners for the year, and getting their heating systems ready for winter. With summer already over, you may be asking, “Is it too late to replace my air conditioner”? The answer is, “No, not at all.” Even if you won’t be using your air conditioner again until next summer, it is never too late to replace it if you feel that you have to.

Let’s examine some of the reasons why you might want to replace your air conditioner before winter.

High Cost of Operation

Older air conditioners have quite a bit of wear and tear on them, which lowers the efficiency of the system. This forces the air conditioner to stay on for longer and longer periods of time, which then drives up the operating cost. You’re going to have to deal with this problem sooner or later, if your air conditioner has reached this point. It is btter to replace it as soon as possible, so that you can make use of your new air conditioner right when the weather warms up.

Repair Issues

Advanced age and wear also make it more likely that various parts of the air conditioner will wear out. A normal air conditioner doesn’t need repairs more than once a year—if that. In an air conditioner that is approaching the end of its life, however, parts are more likely to fail in rapid succession. This commonly leads to repairs once every few months. If your air conditioner needs repairs that often, you might as well replace it now before it breaks down when you really need it.
