The calendar may be telling the world that fall is here but that means nothing to our state. Here in Tampa it often feels like summer is never-ending. Because of this, we are prone to rely heavily on our air conditioning systems to keep us from overheating on a regular basis.
With all this consistent use, however, our cooling systems see a lot of wear and tear. This takes its toll over time, of course, and there comes a day when no amount of maintenance or repairs will help. When that day comes and your AC system simply isn’t up to the job anymore, you may have to consider an upgrade.
If and when you are faced with this decision, we hope you know that the team at IERNA’s Heating & Cooling is available to help with your Tampa AC installation needs. Our professional technicians are ready and available to help with everything from selection to sizing and more.
There will come a day that your air conditioner might need to be replaced with a new unit that operates more efficiently and effectively. Here are some ways to tell that the time has arrived:
Your AC is 10 to 15 years old
Is your cooler old enough to have its driver’s license? If the answer is yes, you should consider a replacement as an AC that is 10 to 15 years old or more is likely to breakdown and will end up costing you more in repairs and utilities than it is worth.
Your System No Longer Produces Cold Air
If you turn on your air system and your realize that no matter what you set the temperature to, this may mean that your system can no longer do its job. Should this be the case, you will want to schedule a new AC system installation sooner than later.
Your Utility Bill Makes You Consider Letting Your Home Become a Sauna
How bad was your last utility bill? If it made you consider the benefits of teaching hot yoga from your living room, then that means the total was too high. This is because your air conditioner is losing its efficiency and uses more energy than it should to attempt to cool your home. When this happens, it means your system needs to be retired and replaced.
The Cost of Repairs is More Than 50% of the Price of a New Unit
How many times have you needed to schedule repairs for your air conditioner lately? If the cost of those repairs adds up to be equal to or more than half the cost of a new system, it means it is time for a replacement.
Is your AC system on its way out? Not to worry because our team is here for you. Our trained and professional HVAC technicians are available to help you with your new system installation and can also discuss the benefits of maintenance with you so your brand-new system has a long and effective lifespan.
