Extra Cash? Consider Investing in Your Family’s Cool Comfort

Replace That Outdated, Inefficient AC Today!

You assembled all of the necessary paperwork, plugged in the numbers and then held your breath. When it was all said and done, the news was good. Your Uncle Sam owes you a juicy tax refund!

Congratulations! Now what? Well, you might want to stash this little windfall in the bank. Or you could splurge on a nice family vacation or a fancy TV. Of course, those are great options—and there are oodles more. But the team at Frog would like you to consider this possibility: replacing that outdated air conditioning system. We know. We know. It’s not the most exciting way to spend your tax refund. But it’s smart and proactive. If your AC unit is getting up in years, you could avoid unnecessary and excessive AC repair bills in Nashville, TN, or wherever you call home. Plus, you’ll avoid the worst-case scenario—an unexpected total system failure in the middle of a heat wave.

So, how old is too old? Well, the answer depends on many factors, including whether your system was installed properly and is being well maintained. But the rule of thumb is that an AC system that is more than 15 years old is at high risk of frequent repairs and breakdowns. Still, that’s not all you should consider. As spring turns to summer and those temperatures continue to climb, your old, inefficient system will work harder to keep up with your comfort needs. The results: an overworked system and higher energy bills.

We get it. Many homeowners put off replacing their air conditioner, hoping it will last far beyond today’s lifetime expectations. But this is a gamble that, in our experience, rarely pays off. Most families end up spending more to keep that old system limping along.

In addition to the age of your unit, here are some other signs that it might need an upgrade:

  • Frequent and more costly repairs
  • Higher energy bills
  • Hot and cold spots throughout your home
  • Excessive noise coming from your unit

A new, more energy-efficient system is worth its weight in gold. Here are just some of the reasons why:

  • Lower energy costs
  • Fewer repair bills
  • Ultimate comfort
  • Quieter operation
  • Newer features, such as programmable thermostats and zoning options

So, what do you say? If your system is on the downslide, there are many valid reasons to consider replacing it. Of course, you want to make sure that you choose the system that is right for your unique space, needs and budget. Plus, you want to make sure your new system is installed to perfection. Well, you’re in luck! Our team is your go-to, reliable, affordable air conditioning replacement company in Nashville, TN.
