If your central air conditioner is more than 10 years old, it’s probably operating at an efficiency somewhere in the 70 percent range, or maybe even less – which means that at least 30 cents of every dollar you spend cooling your East End or North Fork LI home is not being used to do that job.
That’s a lot of money out the window (and through the doors and walls).
Why does this happen? Well, for one thing, yesterday’s air conditioners were not as efficient as they are today – technology keeps improving, making today’s units use less energy to do the same job (they’re also quieter, more reliable, and less harmful to the environment, thanks to more eco-friendly refrigerants). For another, your air conditioning equipment – like any mechanical system – will degrade over time (even if it’s properly maintained by an A/C expert).
Whatever the reason, the older your air conditioner is, the more installing a new high efficiency A/C upgrade becomes – especially if you’re at a point where costly air conditioning repairs will become more likely in the near future (our rule of thumb is if the repair costs half the cost of a new unit, you should install a new air conditioner).
One bit of good news: there are some pretty good manufacturer’s rebates and other energy efficiency incentives out there that you should be able to take advantage of with a little guidance from an air conditioning pro.
