Summers are a little different here in Salem. We don’t have the hottest summers ever since with live in the Pacific Northwest, but we do deal with the some pretty hot temperatures—especially toward the end of the season.
We’ve had enough hot weather so far to make you retreat to your thermostat at least a few times. If you’ve had trouble keeping your home cool, it might be time for you to upgrade to a new air conditioning system entirely. We know that this isn’t exactly exciting news to most people’s ears, but when you come to us, we’ll make your air conditioning installation services as stress free as possible.

Do You Need to Upgrade?
There’s not always a clear indication that you need a new air conditioning system. There might be some minor annoyances or varying signs but determining when enough is enough can be a fine line to tow. We’ll help you make the decision a lot easier though. It’s time to upgrade if:
A Spike in Energy Bills: Notice that your air conditioning bills are sky-high? If you’re running your air conditioning system as you normally would, then you shouldn’t notice any irregularities in your air conditioning bill either. If nothing in your daily routine has changed, then your air conditioning system is the culprit. A persistent problem like this is a sign that you probably need to rid yourself of your old HVAC system.
Odd Run Times: Do you notice that your air conditioner short cycles or runs for super long amounts of time? Both short cycling and long run times indicate a problem with your air conditioner producing and circulating an adequate amount of air throughout your home. Upgrading your air conditioning system is the best way to bypass this problem.
Your AC System is Old: Air conditioning systems typically last anywhere from 15 to 20 years but this is only possible if you’ve maintained your air conditioning system perfectly since day one. If your air conditioner is around that 10-year mark and you’re having trouble getting your home cool or keeping it cool, then it’s probably time for you to invest in a new air conditioning system. You might think that you can stick it out for a few more years with your current system, but trust us, it’s much easier on you to upgrade in a timely fashion.
You Repair Your AC Often: How often do you repair your air conditioning system? If your answer is once a summer or even once every couple of years then you’re repairing your AC system way too often. Sure, an air conditioning repair service might cost less than replacing your AC system as a whole, but it’s not a good long-term solution. If you’re repairing your air conditioning system more frequently as the years go by and you’re paying more and more each time, it’s the right time for you to contact our professionals. We’ll help you choose an AC system that’s perfect for your home.
