Spring is here in Fresno, and summer is on its way. If you haven’t scheduled your AC tune-up yet, now’s the time. However, if your air conditioner is getting up there in age (15 years plus), it might also be time to consider whether or not you need a new air conditioner this spring.
In this blog, we’ll run through some of the things you should take into consideration when thinking about new air conditioning installation. Basically: how do you know when it’s time to have Allbritten switch out your old system for a new one?

Here are 3 signs you need to upgrade to a new air conditioner this spring
If you’ve been on-the-fence about switching out your old air conditioner, here are just a few signs that it might be time to make the change to a new unit:
#1. Your old air conditioner is struggling to keep up with demand
You’ve turned the AC on and set the thermostat, but the cooling that actually comes out of the system is minimal. The thermostat barely budges, and you can’t feel that much cold air coming out of the system.
This is the point where you should call Allbritten for AC repair. It’s also the point where—if your system is more than 15 years old—you should start to consider replacing it.
#2. Your air conditioner breaks down regularly
If your air conditioner continues to break down, summer-after-summer, it might be a good idea to consider replacing it with a new unit. After all, what you’ve been spending in AC repair is probably better spent on a more comfortable and energy-efficient air conditioner.
Still not sure? Talk to your friendly Allbritten technician during your next repair to get a sense of the long-term health of the system. Especially if your air conditioner is more than 15 years old, it may eventually make more sense to replace, instead of repair, the system.
#3. Your current AC is energy-inefficient
As air conditioners age, they become less efficient than currently manufactured systems in two ways:
The wearing down of parts and systems means that older air conditioners “slow down” as they get older.
Today’s air conditioners are more energy-efficient than ever, and are built to get you the most for your energy dollar.
When you take both of these factors into consideration, it’s easy to see how a new air conditioner can help improve your energy-efficiency significantly. In turn, that means you’re saving money on your energy bills for years to come.
