How Often to Replace Your Heating and Air Unit

At Carolina Air Services of Raleigh near Raleigh, we often hear from homeowners interested in new air conditioning units. Higher energy efficiency in new units makes them much more desirable than older ones. However, there are a few things to consider before going for a new machine.

First, if you're looking for higher efficiency from your current machine, look over our suggestions of how to lower your utility bill. There are a lot of things that you can do to increase your system's efficiency (such as adjusting it to Raleigh's climate) without purchasing a new machine.

Air conditioning units typically last for eight to twelve years before beginning to malfunction. When they do, a decision needs to be made - repair, or replace?

It often becomes expensive to repair an old unit as parts may be out of production. Also, newer appliances have much higher energy efficiency, while a repaired appliance will only have a minimum of its original efficiency. However, some problems can be repaired, and a professionally maintained unit can last significantly longer.
