Replace That Aging Air Conditioner
As your AC ages, it becomes less efficient and is more prone to breaking down. Eventually, like any machine, it will fail. The key to avoiding total failure is to replace your system before it shuts down leaving you to swelter. If your air conditioner is over 20 years old, most experts agree it’s at the end of its life regardless of how well maintained it is. Also, if you’re repairing your system more frequently, the money put into repairs is better spent going towards a new system. If you’re unsure about the state of your AC, call an AC contractor and ask them for their advice.
