What are signs replacement is necessary?
Aging air conditioners give a number of warning signs that they need to be replaced. The following are three common signs that it is time to install a new air conditioner:
While the average lifespan of an air conditioner is roughly 15 years, experts recommend replacing the unit at 10 years. Once units have been in use for this long, their efficiency has reduced by as much as 40%.
Another sign that your air conditioner is in need of replacement is if it requires frequent repairs in a short amount of time, which can easily add up in cost.
Do you notice a spike in your energy bill? As the air conditioner becomes more inefficient, it takes more energy to keep your home at the desired temperature, leading to increased energy costs.
What are the features of energy efficient air conditioners?
After deciding that the unit needs to be replaced, it is then time to decide what type of air conditioner to purchase. Energy efficient units include a variety of features that help keep your cooling costs in check. While the features on such units vary, what follows are common features that can dramatically improve your air conditioner’s efficiency:
Variable speed motors, which are motors that can change speeds depending on what is needed to keep the home comfortable.
Thermal expansion valves control the flow of refrigerant coursing through the unit depending on the needs of the home at any given time.
Two-stage cooling systems are another common feature of energy efficient air conditioners. This feature has two cooling output units, high and low, which will run depending on the needs of the home.
