Commercial air conditioning is an investment worth making, but how do you know when it’s time to shell out the cash to finally replace your unit? While commercial units tend to be heartier than their residential counterparts, they are still hard working pieces of equipment that will one day wear out and need replacing. There are three primary indicators to keep an eye out for that will tell you when it’s finally time to outfit your building with new commercial air conditioning.
The system is becoming increasingly inefficient.
As your commercial air conditioner sees more use over the years, it will become less efficient. The unit will need to stay on for longer periods of time to bring the building to the set temperature which means higher operating costs for you. An efficient air conditioner is an expensive air conditioner.
You’re seeing more of your repair professional than you’d like.
Not that your air conditioning repair professional isn’t amiable, but numerous repairs on your commercial air conditioning unit will rack up quite a bill. If you’re needing to call in help to repair your system more than once or twice a year, your air conditioner is likely ready for a replacement. A system that’s needing attention every few months is obviously not a cost effective solution.
Your air conditioner is becoming vintage.
Commercial air conditioning units last between 15-20 years maximum. While they may keep working past this point, it’s a good idea to get it replaced before temperatures are blazing and your system gives out at a crucial point in time. With a system older than 20 years, this really could happen at any time and so getting it replaced with a new high efficiency unit is going to save you time, money, and a headache in the long run.
