Air conditioner repair is never fun. It can be expensive, inconvenient, and time consuming. The best advice, of course is to make sure that you schedule the proper maintenance visits for any HVAC installation, from the newest ductless air conditioning systems to the older models that are still in many homes. The fact that 66% of the homes in America now have air conditioning means that when the temperatures soar, you are not going to be the only one calling in for a repair on a ductless air conditioning system. You will have to get in line, and wait until it is your turn. Instead, experts recommend that in order to have an efficiently running heating or cooling system, you should have yours serviced twice a year: once before the hottest temperatures of the summer and once before the coldest temperatures of the winter.
If your AC is 10 years or older, you may save as much as 20% on your energy costs by replacing it with a newer, more efficient model. Sometimes biting the bullet early and budgeting the money on a new system proactively is the best way to avoid getting stuck with an unexpected and expensive repair bill later. On the hottest day of the summer. Luckily, today’s air conditioners use about 50% less energy than they did in 1990, so the immediate energy savings can start to help a property owner recoup the cost of the upgrade.
