Spring is here and the heat has officially arrived in Buckeye & Goodyear, Arizona! Is your AC unit ready to keep you cool during the warmer months ahead? If your system has been acting up recently, is it time to schedule maintenance or replace your AC system all together? Here are some common signs to look for when you might need a new system.

Age – If your system is more than 10 years old, it is time to think about purchasing a new one. Typically, an AC system lasts around 10-15 years. However, in Arizona the life span is much lower due to the intense summer temperatures.  Plus, a newer system will be compatible with a smart thermostat, which can help you easily pre-program and control your home’s temperature through your phone. A smart thermostat will keep your home cool exactly when you want it to be, prevent you from wasting extra energy, and save you money in the long-run.

Expensive Repairs – If your system is in constant need of expensive repairs, it is time to invest your money into a new system. Generally, if the repair costs are getting close to 50% of the value of the system, it is time to get a new one! Give our team of experts a call today if you’d like to learn more about our installation services.

Frequent Breakdowns – If your AC system is frequently breaking down or encountering problems, it might be time to consider replacing your system all together. The last thing you want to worry about during an Arizona summer is if your AC system is going to breakdown, so a new system can give you cool air and peace of mind.

High Energy Bills – Newer, more energy efficient units may cost more up front, but will actually save you money on your energy bills in the long-run! Do you know what your AC unit’s SEER rating is? AC units with lower SEER ratings require more energy to function than AC units with higher SEER ratings.

Not Cooling – If your AC system is running but your home is never fully cooling, it may be a sign that your unit needs to be replaced. Overtime, system wear down and may not cool as effectively as it used to.
