Needing an AC replacement can’t be avoided; it happens to everyone at some point or another.
The question is, how do you know when it’s time for a replacement, and can you avoid the bitter end of an AC breakdown by being proactive early on? The answer is yes, you can.
On average, AC systems have a life expectancy of anywhere from 10 to 15 years, with proper care and professional maintenance, of course.
But at what point around that 10 to 15-year mark do you decide to go ahead and replace your unit before it completely breaks down?
Let’s discuss –
If your AC unit makes loud and/or unusual noises when kicking on and off or during operation, this could be a clear sign that it’s time to update the unit.
As HVAC systems age, their components can begin to show that wear and tear by operating less smoothly and more noisily.
Several factors can cause weak airflow from your air conditioning system. If you replace your air filter regularly and still experience poor airflow, you may have more severe problems.
Poor airflow can also be caused by compressor issues and blocked or damaged ventilation, requiring costly repairs; in these cases, an AC replacement would make much more sense.
If you have to get your AC unit repaired often, you definitely need an AC replacement.
AC repairs are often costly and extremely frustrating. Rather than putting so much time and money into an old unit, replacing it with a new and modern system will benefit you much more.
If your energy bills have gradually increased, you may be falling victim to a poorly performing and inefficient AC system. Modern air conditioning equipment is much more energy-efficient and will operate smoothly without using more energy than necessary.
By having a professional AC replacement done, you can ensure your comfort and save money on energy bills for years to come.
If your air conditioner is failing to cool your home evenly and consistently, it may be time for an AC replacement to enhance performance and comfort throughout your home.
An HVAC technician will be able to examine your cooling system and advise you on the best course of action to achieve maximum comfort.
