Go take a look at your AC unit. Does it look sad? Is it in need of TLC? Is it older than you? If so, it’s probably time to upgrade. While upgrading your AC system can seem like a stressful and expensive undertaking, it can benefit you in the long run. Here’s how to tell if it’s time to upgrade and why you should do it:
When is it Time to Upgrade My AC?
Occasionally, your air conditioning system will need a little work here and there, but routine maintenance will only go so far. Here are some telltale signs it’s time to upgrade your AC:
- Your air conditioning system is more than 10 years old.
An old AC probably isn’t running as efficiently as a new system could.
- Your air conditioning system is constantly breaking down.
Know when to throw in the towel! No matter how handy you are, there comes a time when upgrading your AC unit is the best route.
- Your energy bills have increased.
An old unit could mean less efficiency and higher bills—who wants that?
- Your house isn’t comfortable.
What’s the point of paying for air conditioning if your AC isn’t doing its job? If you are noticing that your house is too humid, or if certain rooms are colder or warmer than others, it may be time to upgrade.
- Your thermostat doesn’t work for your lifestyle.
Thermostats are so fancy these days and can help reduce energy costs if you have one that suits your lifestyle. For example, if you are gone the majority of the day, but have an outdated thermostat, you don’t have the option to adjust your AC to use less energy during the day.
What are the Benefits of Upgrading my AC?

For starters, when you visit One Hour Air Largo, the experienced team will help you find the best upgraded system to suit your needs while still remaining in your budget.
