Thinking of replacing the air conditioner

I have been considering a new air conditioner.

Although the cooling system installed into my home is still operational, it is almost twenty years old.

It has lasted much longer than I expected. While the system has been quite reliable, it’s beginning to show signs of age. It now makes a great deal of noise when starting up or shutting down. Because the air conditioner is putting out less cool air, it’s forced to run a lot more often than it used to. It uses a lot more energy and monthly electric bills are considerably higher. Plus, the air conditioner struggles to keep up on especially hot and humid summer days and nights. The house often feels overheated and sticky. There seems to be an increase in the amount of dust and other particles circulating in the breathing air. I worry that contaminated air quality will cause health problems for my family. I am concerned that the air conditioner will fail at a very inopportune time. I’ve started researching the new models available. Today’s generation of air conditioners offer much higher SEER ratings and all sorts of advantageous features. I could upgrade to adaptable-speed technology. This would allow the cooling unit to intuitively tailor output to the exact demands of the indoor space. Making a tiny one percent adjustment in speed anywhere between forty and one hundred percent capacity, the AC unit would maintain a more consistent temperature, optimize efficiency and reduce carbon footprint. It would cost less to operate and yet do a better job of filtering out pollutants and handling excess humidity. Modern system are also more compact and make a lot less noise. We would have the benefit of the manufacturer’s warranty.
