Central air conditioning is a wonderful invention, allowing you to keep your entire home cool at the same time, without worrying about window units or ceiling fans. A central air conditioner is meant to run continuously throughout the summer season to keep your home cool. If you don't already have central air conditioning, you should consider having a unit installed at your home. If you aren't sure if you should upgrade the one you currently have, read on for helpful information.

1. You Have An Outdated Unit

If your system that you are currently using is old and outdated, even if it's still currently running, you should consider replacing it. An older unit is going to breakdown at some point, and finding parts to repair it will be very difficult and expensive. Repair work on an older unit can also be expensive, as it can be hard to find someone to work on your outdated system. A good rule of thumb is that if the system is older than 12 years old, you should consider replacing it.

2. You Have Had To Repair It

If you are repairing your unit every single season or multiple times throughout the season, you may want to consider replacing the unit. If you have to constantly make repairs, you are better off replacing the unit, as the costs of the repairs are going to accumulate quickly. Also, if the repairs are becoming much larger and more expensive repairs, you should consider replacing rather than paying for expensive repairs, especially if the repairs are for things like the motor, or the fan.

3. You Don't Have Central Air Conditioning

If you don't have central air conditioning at all in your home, you should consider having a system installed. Central air is a great convenience to have — not just for you but for future owners of your home, as well. Central air conditioning can also help add value to your home and can be a great selling point if you are planning on selling your home someday. 

If you have central air and your system is aging or you've had to make multiple repairs, or if you don't yet have central air in your home, consider having a new system installed at your home today. Call an HVAC contractor today to discuss installing a new central air system at your home today, and enjoy all of the benefits of cool air throughout the summer weather season.
