Is it time to replace your Air Conditioning?
If your air conditioning system is more than 15 years old, it’s probably time for an upgrade. But why? If the system works, why change it?
Read this article to find out why it could be time to replace your air conditioning system.
Signs of an Ageing Air Conditioning System
As your air conditioning system approaches the end of its life, you’ll notice some tell-tale signs that it’s time for an upgrade:
As an air conditioning unit ages, its level of performance declines. That means your home or office environment may not feel as comfortable as it did when the system was newer.
You could even find yourself with no air conditioning at all, and that’s not good news for your workforce or your family if your system fails in the height of summer!
Like any mechanical equipment, parts of an air conditioning system have an expected lifespan. Once certain parts begin to fail, that’s often an indication that other components are also reaching the end of their life. Regular repairs to a system can be frustrating and costly, not to mention living without the necessary heating or cooling until repairs are carried out.
Outdated or obsolete technology
A new, high-efficiency air conditioning system can be up to 40% more efficient than a system that’s ten years old or more. New, more technologically advanced systems are more energy-efficient, cheaper to run, and outperform old ones.
Also, legislation is being aimed more and more at energy efficiency in business premises.
Is Your Air Conditioning System Illegal?
Did you know that on 1 January 2015, it became illegal to use R22 refrigerant to maintain and service air conditioning systems? That’s because R22 refrigerant is extremely damaging to the ozone layer if it leaks from an air conditioning system into the atmosphere.
So, many systems that were installed before 2015 are outdated. Consequently, spare parts for these R22 systems are scarce and extremely expensive.
So, it’s time to consider a modern replacement.
