When to Invest In a New AC System

It’s a big commitment to invest in a new AC system for your home. Most homeowners try to postpone the expense for as long as they can before contacting an AC company to get a quote for installation. But putting it off could be costing you anyway if you’re spending money on AC repairs and higher energy bills.

It may actually save you money to install a new air conditioner that’s more energy efficient. If you’re ready for an AC installation in Rogers, MN, give our team a call. We can talk to you about your concerns and assess your home to offer a solution that fits your family’s needs now and in the future. If you’re still on the fence about whether or not you need a new air conditioner, read on to learn the signs that it’s time to invest in a new AC system.

Energy Bills Steadily Increasing

Your energy bills fluctuate over time. If your provider’s rates go up, you may see an increase in your monthly energy bill. But if your bill goes up each month without relenting, your AC may be losing efficiency – fast. An older air conditioner doesn’t have the same energy efficiency as newer models with updated technology. On top of that, your unit loses efficiency year after year, making it more expensive to operate. You may not even realize how much lower your energy bills could be until you get a unit and see the difference on your monthly statement.

Repairs are Stacking Up

It’s normal to have an AC repair here or there. But if you’re calling our team of experts month after month to come and repair something, it’s time for a new unit. Repair costs can often outweigh the cost of a new unit. We love having you as a customer, but it doesn’t mean we want to come to your house once a month to fix a new problem that pops up. Sometimes repairs can just be bandaids on a much larger problem.

Your AC is on Constantly

In the hottest weeks of summer, your air conditioner may be on more as it works harder to cool your home. But this shouldn’t be the case year round. If you notice that your air conditioner is running constantly without turning off, that’s a problem. Your compressor isn’t designed to run around the clock, and doing so can put a huge strain on the components. Plus, you’re spending a lot more on your energy bill as your AC unit continues to use electricity throughout the day.

Strange Sounds

If you hear any loud or surprising noises, something is definitely wrong. For example, if your unit shrieks or sounds as loud as a train, you need to turn your air conditioner off immediately. Allowing your AC to continue running even though you know something is wrong can put your home and family at risk. You don’t want to motor to overheat or something to go wrong with the electrical system. Instead, call our team for a checkup. Chances are, it’s time to install a new AC unit in your home.
