The age of your system plays a major role in determining whether it’s time to replace it or not. Most central air systems will have a lifespan of about 10-15 years, but it’s time to start thinking about replacement after 10 years. After all, think about how much more energy efficient newer systems can be.
Additionally, some older systems use R22, a freon refrigerant that is being phased out. Refilling your system could be costly.
Have you been spending a small fortune on air conditioning repairs lately? This is another signal that it may be time to have your old system replaced. Even though it might cost more upfront, a new system isn’t going to require many repairs.

Your home is supposed to be a comfortable place to relax. It’s your air conditioner’s job to keep it cool and remove moisture from the air. If you’ve noticed that your home has been excessively humid and uncomfortable lately, it could be because your air conditioner is no longer doing its job.
