Another reason a replacement might be warranted decision is when the cost of repairing your existing ac has become too high.

More than likely you could save by replacing your AC unit, you just don’t know it yet. A new, energy-efficient AC system will save you money by reducing overall energy consumption. Newer air conditioning systems can often times save you 50% on your electric bill when your new ac unit is installed correctly. The AC models on the market today work with high efficiency driven by high SEER ratings. SEER or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio is a measure of the air conditioning system’s overall efficiency. These ratings allow the consumer to compare the cost of running one air conditioning system to another.
SEER is determined by dividing the total cooling output throughout the cooling season by the total electrical energy input throughout the cooling seasons. This gives you a SEER rating.
The higher the number the more efficient the AC system is, which equates to lower utility bills. Air conditioners that are older have higher SEER ratings which means they will cost you more to run. Regardless of your ac system, you can buy an ac unit with the highest rated SEER on the market but if it’s not properly installed, your cost savings and energy efficiency will significantly decrease.
