It’s probably the last thing you want to even consider. It is hot out and having an air conditioner that doesn’t work right it one thing but needing to reaplce it is a whole other ballgame! That’s a big chunk of change and a lot of time and energy to take care of.

Let us give you some information on what it looks like when your AC is ready to retire so you know when to reach out to us and get the replacement process started.
Your AC is old enough for a driver’s license.
How many years have you had your current air conditioner? If you recently inherited your AC with your new home, it is a good idea to check the AC itself and see its date of manufacture. If your system is between 10 to 15 years old, it is time to start planning for a replacement in the near future. If your system is 15+, then you’ll need to get a replacement process in the works ASAP.
Your system isn’t producing cold air anymore.
This could be caused by a multitude of issues. However, if you’ve been on the ball about annual maintenance and timely repairs, an AC that isn’t cooling anymore is a big problem. If your system has completely lost its ability to do its primary job, then it is simply an overly expensive fan!
Repairs are frequent and expensive.
Every air conditioner will need a repair or two at some point in its lifespan. That said, repairs shouldn’t be incredibly expensive, nor should they be a yearly occurrence. If you need repairs for your system each year, then your AC is likely wearing out. Likewise, if the repairs for your AC have gotten so expensive that they could cover half of the cost of a new system, it is better to invest in a new AC altogether. Why spend money on a system that is only going to keep getting worse?
Your air conditioner uses an outdated refrigerant.
The technology that supports modern ACs is always changing. That is why it is a good idea to keep tabs on what refrigerant type you have in your AC and check to see if it has been phased out. If you have an AC that still uses R-22 it is best to prep for a replacement as this refrigerant has been fully phased out. Even the newer refrigerant R410A is in the process of being phased out at this point so if your system uses this type, you may want to plan for a new AC in the future too.
