Is It Time for Air Conditioning Replacement?
Replacing your air conditioner is a big decision. It’s one of the largest expenses any homeowner faces and it’s not a decision to make lightly. You may be concerned that your air conditioner can still give good performance for another year or two with repairs to delay replacement. Not sure if your air conditioner really needs to be replaced? We recommend considering the following questions to help you decide when to invest in a replacement air conditioner.


  • How old is your air conditioner? Air conditioners usually last for around 15 years. Once your system reaches about 10 years old, it’s probably time to look into a replacement model. R22 freon is being phased out
  • Does the system use R22 freon? R22 freon is being phased out by the federal government and only recycled R22 refrigerant will be available to HVAC technicians to service these systems by 2020. If your air conditioner is older than 10 years, it probably uses freon and should be replaced.
  • How often have you repaired your air conditioner? You can expect routine repairs now and then but an air conditioner that requires multiple repairs over a couple of years is probably ready for a major system failure. Don’t waste money on an air conditioner that’s at the end of its life. The next repair bill will be better spent toward a new air conditioner.
  • What are the expected costs to repair the system? If your air conditioner needs repairs now, consider the cost. If the repair bill would be around half of the cost of a new system, spend your money upgrading to an energy efficient model instead of repairs. Department of Energy Request an Estimate
  • Do you notice rising cooling costs? Air conditioners today are much more efficient than they were just 10 years ago. In fact, replacing a 10-year-old model with a new energy efficient air conditioner can save you 20-40% on your cooling costs, according to the Department of Energy. With an older unit, energy costs are only going to get higher as the system ages.


As your air conditioner ages, it will become less reliable and more expensive to operate and it will eventually fail unexpectedly. Contact Edgerton, Inc.
