Replacing your air conditioning system is an investment. Here are some things to consider:

1. The unit’s age.

The expected life of your air conditioner is somewhere between 10 and 20 years. So, if your unit is more than 10 years old, it could be time for a replacement.

2. Rising energy bills.

As air conditioners get older, they become less energy efficient. To see if your air conditioner is losing efficiency, compare your utility bills over the past few summers. If costs are climbing, it might be a signal that your unit is wearing out.
Leaking refrigerant. Not only is refrigerant costly, but refrigerant leaks will cause the compressor to go out ultimately. The type of refrigerant that your unit needs may also cause you problems down the road.
