When is it Time to Purchase a New Air Conditioner?

edit

I know it is only February and summer seems like a distant memory, but time flies and it will be here again before you know it.  It may seem counter intuitive, but there is nothing wrong with starting to think about your air conditioner now. You do not have to make any rash decisions at this point, but this could be the time to consider whether or not you need a new air conditioner. Starting to think about it now will ensure that you will be all set to go when that first heat wave rolls around, and it gives you time to really weigh all the options.

First thing to consider is, is your air conditioner TOO OLD? Your air conditioner may be too old if…

  • It remembers it 1994 Major League Baseball strike
  • It watched The Norway Winter Olympics
  • It saw what happened between Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan
  • It remembers when “Friends” first came out
  • It was around when the “Chunnel” between France and England opened

An air conditioner’s life span in 15-20 years, so if you have the same air conditioner in your home now as when any of the above events occurred in 1994, it is definitely time to get a new one. Newer air conditioners are much more efficient and will save you more money in the long run. If you are interested in beginning the process to learn more, contact Santa Fe Air!
