With temperatures quickly on the rise in our area, it’s no secret that summer is well on its way. The fact is, our temperatures are going to soar even higher. When they do, you’ll want to ensure that your ductless cooling system is working as effectively and efficiently as possible.
Is your system aging? Perhaps it’s required numerous repairs in recent years. If this is the case, then you probably want to consider replacing the system. Doing this now can help you avoid getting stuck with a malfunctioning system on one of our hottest days. Keep reading for some of the most common signs that it’s time to replace your system.
Typically, ductless systems are designed to last approximately 20 years. This is, of course, dependent on how well you take care of it and if you schedule routine maintenance each year. However even the most well maintained systems experience natural wear and tear and begin to decline in efficiency and performance. Plus, the introduction of new technology makes replacing and old system a financially reasonable decision.
Rising Monthly Bills
The older your ductless system gets, the more wear and tear it accumulates. As a result, your unit will begin to decline in efficiency, and will need to operate longer just to be able to meet your home cooling demands. As a result, you may see an increase in your utility bills even though you are not using your air conditioner any more than you have in previous years.
As your ductless system ages, the wear and tear that it accrues will become so great that your system’s components will start failing. It’s common to need perhaps one or two repairs a year, even with a good maintenance plan. However if your ductless system requires repairs much more often than this, then it’s a sign you need a new one.
