Four Key Signs It’s Time To Upgrade Your AC

May 18, 2020 | Blog

Your HVAC unit is one of the biggest investments for your home. While you rely on it to keep you and your family comfortable, it can be hard to determine when the right time is to make an upgrade. There are many factors that determine whether you should repair or replace your air conditioner, the following four can help you make the decision that is best for you.

It’s Getting Old

On average, your air conditioning unit will last from 10-15 years. As it ages, it doesn’t work as effectively, meaning it will cost you more in utility bills to get the same level of comfort in your home. Additionally, with advancements in technology, units are lasting for longer. You can rest assured that a new air conditioner will keep you and your family cool for many years to come.

Your Energy Bills Have Increased

If you’ve noticed an incline in your utility costs, it might be time for a new AC. When your HVAC unit isn’t functioning at full capacity, it’ll take more energy, and therefore more money, to keep you and your family cool. By upgrading your unit to something more efficient, such as Trane’s most efficient XV20i TruComfort Variable Speed Air Conditioner, you’ll save more money over time with reduced energy costs.

You’re Hearing Strange Noises

As you probably already know, strange noises coming from your HVAC unit are never a sign of something good. If you begin hearing noises that are out of the ordinary, it is likely an indication that you should repair or replace your AC unit. The bright side is, with today’s technology, HVAC systems are now quieter than ever. A system such as Trane’s quietest XV18 TruComfort™ Variable Speed Air Conditioner can keep you comfortable without you knowing how hard it’s working for you.

Your Home Used to Be More Comfortable

If your home isn’t staying as comfortable as it used to, and you’ve noticed that some rooms are much warmer or colder than others, it may be a sign that it’s time to upgrade your air conditioner. If your unit is no longer doing its job, and is costing you more money to run, consider upgrading to a Trane product that will work for you.
