Old AC? When Enough Is Enough

Monday, July 30th, 2018

man-with-fanWhen it comes to air conditioning replacements, there is one question that we hear time and time again—how old is too old? The answer that we have to give right off the bat is not always one that homeowners want to hear: that all depends. Sure, the age of your air conditioning system is definitely something that you should keep in mind if you are thinking about replacing it sometimes soon. It’s really not the deciding factor that some homeowners seem to think it is, though.

The estimated lifespan of any given air conditioner may be a bit on the conservative side. We also live in a very hot area, but it’s also quite dry. Some homeowners may not run their air conditioners quite as much as others, particularly throughout the night. Your diligence in terms of changing air filters and scheduling AC tune-ups can also inform how long your air conditioner is really going to last, as well as your overall individual priorities. So here are some tips from your Waterflow, NM HVAC pros regarding when to replace your AC.

Is It Worth It to Convert Your Swamp Cooler?

Swamp coolers, also called evaporative coolers, have long been a popular choice for AC systems in homes in New Mexico.

In our area, the dry climate means that, for most of the year, water can evaporate into the air with ease. And that’s how your swamp cooler works—evaporation. Air blows over a damp pad, and warm dry air becomes cool moist air as the water evaporates into the air.

How to Find an Efficient System for Air Conditioning Installation

Monday, April 20th, 2015

When selecting a new air conditioning system, many homeowners are concerned about the initial cost.

An inexpensive unit may not last long enough to be cost-effective, and it is not likely to be an energy efficient choice. The following guide details two ways to make sure your new AC runs efficiently, saving you money from month to month, which may eventually offset the initial cost.

Is it Time for an Air Conditioning Replacement

Monday, October 13th, 2014

When you live in as hot a climate as we do around here, you really need to know that your air conditioner will be there for you when you need it the most. However, you must also bear in mind the fact that no air conditioner, no matter how well designed and manufactured, is going to last forever. At some point, you are going to find yourself in need of an air conditioning replacement in Farmington, NM. When that time comes, remember that the professional technicians at Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. are here to help. We have the knowledge and information you need to find the right replacement AC for your home, as well as to determine if the time for such action has really come.

There are a lot of signs that may indicate the need – impending or immediate – for an air conditioning replacement. Because you really don’t want to wait for your system to break down entirely, it is important that you get to know these warning signs so that you can take preemptive action. Doing so will help to minimize the risk of any downtime to your comfort. If you notice any such problems, let a member of our team assess the condition of your system immediately.

First of all, you need to ask yourself if your system is still worth repairing. If you find yourself paying for frequent repairs, after all, it may make more sense to put that money towards the purchase of a new, more reliable, and more efficient system. Just because something can be repaired does not mean that that is necessarily the best option.

You should also keep in mind the age of your air conditioning system. It is very possible for an older system, though still in fine working condition, to fall well short of the efficiency levels that are common today. If your system is costing a fortune to operate anyway, even if it does so dependably, investing in new air conditioner may be a worthwhile course of action. The reduced energy costs can help to offset the initial investment over time.

If you have any concerns at all regarding your air conditioning system, do not hesitate to give Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. a call. We’ll help you to determine if the time for an AC replacement in Farmington, NM is justified. If so, we’ll handle the service with the skill and care that we are known for.
