If you’re a homeowner here in Kennesaw, GA, you know how vital your home’s AC is. However, when you have an aging AC system, it isn’t always obvious when you need to think about replacing it with a new one. One question the team here at Total Comfort Solutions Heating and Cooling often gets is whether or not it’s a good idea to replace an AC that’s at or over 20 years old. Here’s the answer.
The Expected Lifespan of Your AC
If your home’s AC managed to provide reliable cooling for 20 years or more, you should celebrate! That puts your system at the high end of the average AC’s expected lifespan. However, beyond age 20, you can expect your AC to start needing more frequent repairs. And at some point, you should expect that those repairs will start getting more and more expensive. That alone makes replacing your 20-year-old AC a smart decision.
The Benefits of a New AC System
The good news is that, although a new AC system isn’t inexpensive, you will get an array of benefits from it. The first is greater reliability. A new AC shouldn’t need repairs often or at all for many years after you have it installed. And your new AC should be significantly more efficient than your old one, too. Twenty years ago, the average AC had a SEER rating of 10 or 12. Today, the average system has a SEER of 16, and many are even higher than that! So, you can expect your new AC to provide you with perfect comfort while lowering your electricity bills.
