Homeowners love their central air conditioners (ACs) here in Phoenix, AZ.

Maintaining a comfortable home in Arizona is a must for your health and safety. You need an efficient air conditioning system that will not break down in the summer heat. Your cooling system should also regulate humidity, removing moisture from the indoor air and enhancing indoor air quality (IAQ).

If your equipment does not meet those challenges, it is time to consider replacement.

As a Trane Comfort Specialist, our team is eager to show you Trane’s quality air conditioners and explain how they can improve comfort and energy efficiency in your home. Call us for a free estimate and a consultation.

When Should I Install New AC?

Are you planning to run your equipment as long as possible and put off investing in a new unit?

That may meet your immediate financial needs but could cost you more money in the long run.

Central air conditioners lose efficiency as they age. Parts wear out, and repairs are more frequent. Preventative maintenance can help restore efficiency and prolong your air conditioner’s lifespan, but eventually, the unit will fail beyond repair.

As your AC unit struggles to maintain efficiency, it uses more energy and increases spending on electricity. More frequent repairs will have you opening your wallet again and again.

Well-maintained central air conditioners can last 15 to 20 years, although ENERGY STAR® recommends replacement for units more than 10 years old. High-efficiency air conditioners with the ENERGY STAR label can save up to 20 percent on heating and cooling costs.

SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, a rating that measures a cooling system’s energy efficiency. The higher the SEER2 number, the greater the energy efficiency.
