Are you ready to replace your air conditioner? We can help! With summer is on the way you will want to be prepared with a way to cool down once those sweltering days arrive. Depending on the brand, an HVAC system will last about fifteen years but there are several other telltale signs that indicate a replacement could be needed.
If you are needing repairs every year, then it could be a sign that your unit is breaking down due to age. While it may be tempting to just keep doing the repairs, they could add up over time making an investment in a new unit the smarter choice. Experts recommended multiplying the age of the unit by the repair cost and if that’s more than $5,000, it’s time to consider a new one.
A humid home can contribute to all sorts of physical discomfort including worsening allergies and contributing to dangerous mold growth in your home. With recent advances in A/C technology, you can ensure that an Energy Star unit will help alleviate this issue. The size of the unit in comparison to your home plays a big role in keeping humidity levels down, so that’s a key factor to consider when choosing your new air conditioner.
If it sounds like Frankenstein is banging around near your HVAC system, it is a sign that the system components including the compressor and fan motor could be feeling their age. Newer systems are dramatically quieter than older ones, and their higher efficiency ratings can also save you money.
Uneven Cooling and Heating
It’s no fun walking into a warm room even though the air conditioner is on full blast. A number of issues could be contributing to this issue including air leaks in your duct work, incorrect unit settings, not enough insulation in your attic and older units that don’t put out enough cool air anymore. If your system is over 10-12 years old, then it could be losing its efficiency. Try installing a new air conditioner with a zoning system so that you can be sure each room in your home will be at the temperature you set it to be.
