Many people don’t realize that their outdated air conditioner unit is losing them money. But perhaps you’re not sure where to start, as maybe you’ve never purchased an AC unit before. Here are a few reasons why you should consider investing in a new AC unit installation to replace your old one:
There is a new refrigerant in town: R-410A! This is the current standard within the industry for AC coolants, replacing the old refrigerant R-22. As R-22 will be completely phased out by 2020, and the fact that 90% of it has already been phased out, means it is currently more expensive than R-410A. In addition, R-410A is the more eco-friendly coolant.
It’s also important to note that R-410A has been more affordable as time goes on. The cutoff for the manufacture of AC units that use R-22 was in 2010, so if your unit was made before that, chances are it uses R-22.
Perhaps your AC unit doesn’t have the modulating technology. The upside of having this technology is that it makes your AC unit far more energy efficient. And energy saved means money saved!
An alternative to modulating technology is having an AC unit that operates at multiple stages. This is also a way to improve energy efficiency and save yourself money.
Another sign your AC unit may be old and need to be replaced is if your utility bill suddenly starts to rise, or you are scheduling frequent AC unit repairs.
