Before summer really gets into full swing, you're going to want to make sure that your air conditioner is up to the task of keeping you cool all season long. If you're system isn't going to last you another season, you should make sure that it gets replaced now instead of risking it dying on you in the middle of a hot day. Read on for some of the most common signs that you need to replace your ductless air conditioner before summer.
The older a system gets, the more worn out it becomes. As the wear and tear on your ductless air conditioner mounts, it will experience a steady decline in efficiency that will force it to operate for longer. These longer operating times will result in higher operating costs. If your monthly bills are rising for no apparent reason, it may be because your ductless system needs to be replaced.
As the system nears the end of its life, the wear and tear on it will become so great that parts of it will start failing en masse. Normally, you shouldn't have to repair your ductless air conditioner more than once or twice a year. If you need to have your system repaired every few months, it's a sure sign that you need a new one.
Generally, ductless systems are manufactured to last around 20 years. Past that point, the combination of natural decline of the system and the advent of new technology makes replacing an old system a better option than maintaining it. If your ductless system is older than 20 years, talk to a professional about replacing it.
