When is the right time to replace my air conditioner?

While proper maintenance and care can greatly extend the lifespan and working efficiency of your home's air conditioning system, eventually all air conditioners will need to be replaced. Signs that you should replace your air conditioner include: your air conditioner is more than 14 years old, your air conditioner uses costly R22 Freon, your AC system requires frequent repairs, your AC struggles to keep your home comfortable, your electric bill is out of control and getting higher every summer. If any of this applies to you, it is probably time to replace your air conditioner.
