Summers without air conditioning in Columbia are very hard. While investing in a new air conditioner can be a big step, our experts at Watts Electric & A/C Inc want to make your swap as easy as possible. Ask yourself these questions when determining if it’s time to ditch your old air conditioner and invest in a new one this summer:

Is your system unreliable? Taking the time to investigate different air conditioning systems and how other consumers have rated them will certify that you invest in a consistent and trusted air conditioner. Is your system noisier than you would like? With new sound-cancelling innovations, noise levels are drastically lessened and make it so that you can’t even know when your system turns on. Assess your comfort levels with the extent of noise your current system is making.
Is your HVAC system raising your energy bills? When your air conditioner is running well, then you are saving yourself money. The latest systems with new technology can make a huge difference in your energy usage, so if you’re trying to save a few bucks, a change could help you out. Do you have comfortable airflow? If you notice inconsistent airflow from your air conditioner, a newer system can help maintain the cool air flowing efficiently throughout your home.


One rule of thumb that our professionals at Watts Electric & A/C Inc tell homeowners is that if your repairs total to over 50 percent of the cost of your air conditioner, it’s time for a replacement. Replacing your air conditioner offers you a fresh sense of luxury in your home – here are a few things to watch for to confirm your replacement decision: 

  • Age: the average life span for an air conditioner is 10 to 12 years, so if you are reaching that amount of utilization from your system or note that it is sputtering more often, replacement might be forthcoming. The newer the system, the better it performs.
  • Filters: every time your air conditioner turns on, it gathers dirt and particles that can accumulate over time. While replacing filters every three months is crucial to maintaining your system clean and running smoothly, eventually the filters will demand full replacement, as well.

There are many things to contemplate when thinking about air conditioner replacement; reliability, effectiveness, sound, consistency and airflow, just to name a few. To find the best system for you and your home, our experts at Watts Electric & A/C Inc are here to make your comfort our top priority.
