How will I know when it's time for air conditioner replacement?
The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) ENERGY STAR Program recommends commercial air conditioner replacement when your system is more than 10 years old.
- Frequent breakdowns and the 50 percent rule
If you are constantly repairing your A/C, or repair costs are adding up to more than half the value of your system, an Alltemp technician can help you determine if commercial air conditioner replacement makes the best financial sense.
- Comfort issues
Poorly operating air conditioners result in uneven temperatures throughout your business in addition to humidity problems, which can lead to mold, mildew growth, and air quality issues.
Systems that are ailing or are unable to keep up with the cooling demands. If this describes the system at your business, commercial air conditioner replacement may be in order.
There are many benefits to upgrading to a newer, energy efficient air conditioner:
- Lower energy bills
Depending on the age of your current system and its SEER rating (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio), upgrading to a newer system could save you 20 to 40 percent on cooling costs. While older systems typically have a SEER rating of 10 or less, today's systems have a minimum SEER rating of 14.
- Improved comfort
Newer systems do a better job of controlling temperature and humidity, improving air quality.
- Environmentally friendly
Less energy consumption reduces your carbon footprint, and newer systems utilize a more environmentally friendly refrigerant, R-410A.
Other factors that may influence your decision on air conditioner replacement:
Newer units come with a warranty, which can help you save if repairs become necessary.
- The phase-out and resulting high cost of R-22 refrigerant
The U.S. Government and EPA have mandated the phase-out of R-22 refrigerant by 2020 in order to protect the ozone. Because R-22 supplies are further limited each year, the cost of R-22 needed to refill the refrigerant on your older system will continue to rise every year.
In addition to monthly energy savings that add up over the lifetime of your new air conditioner rebates may be available through you utility company to help you save. Contact your local utility company to inquire about any rebate offers.
What type of air conditioner system do you have?
- Split system
This is the most common air conditioner system, utilizing duct-work and consisting of an indoor evaporator unit and an outdoor condenser.
- Ductless mini-splits
This system does not utilize ducts. Instead it has an indoor unit mounted to the wall and an outdoor condenser. This is ideal if you want to cool smaller areas at a time.
- Packaged system
This uses duct-work to distribute air like a split system. However, both the condensing and evaporator system are "packaged" or housed outside within a single unit.
If you opt for air conditioner replacement, be sure to start your system off right:
- Establish a regular, in-house preventive maintenance schedule.
