It’s about to get warmer here in Gresham. Is your home ready to beat the heat? If you’ve been considering a new cooling system, now is the perfect time to upgrade.

It’s a smart move for long-term savings. Replacing an air conditioner (AC) that’s 10 years or older with a new efficient model can reduce your bills by up to 50 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

On top of that, Sun Glow is pleased to announce the Carrier Cool Cash Instant Rebate. Between now and May 26, 2023, you can receive up to $1,350 off a new Carrier Infinity series AC or ductless system. Get in touch with our Oregon office to learn more.

3 Signs You Need a New AC System

No heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system lasts forever. AC and heat pumps run efficiently for 15 to 20 years, while ductless units can last for up to 30 years. Besides age, here are a few signs that it’s time for a replacement:

  1. It needs to be repaired regularly. The occasional repair isn’t out of the ordinary. But if you’re regularly spending lots of money to fix your air conditioning unit, it might be more cost-effective to invest in a new cooling system. Sun Glow professionals will always give you an honest assessment—we’ll tell you whether a repair is warranted, or if you’d save more by upgrading.
  1. Your energy costs have increased. As your cooling system ages, the internal parts are subject to natural wear-and-tear damage. This can cause them to work twice as hard to give you the same amount of cooling. You pay more for the same level of comfort. If you can rule out leaky air ducts (another common culprit for high bills), your old HVAC system may be to blame.
  1. Your cooling could be more consistent. Do certain parts of your home feel humid or stuffy? Aging cooling systems get progressively worse at humidity regulation and ventilation. Investing in a new AC unit might be warranted if your Gresham home is only comfortable in some rooms.
