5 Signs that it's Time to Replace Your Home's Air Conditioner


Once again, the blazing heat has returned and you're putting great faith in your home's AC unit to keep your family cool. At the first sign of trouble with your AC system, you'll want to call in a reputable HVAC professional to come over and conduct an inspection. Here's a look at how to know if your air conditioner should be replaced.

Regularly Needs Repair

By scheduling annual AC maintenance, you can help to prevent issues from arising. However, if your AC unit is still requiring regular repair visits, then it could make more financial sense to cut the cord and invest in a new unit.

Continues to Run

If your AC unit won't stop running, then there's a good chance it's on its last legs. With this symptom, you'll want to have an HVAC professional conduct diagnostics to see if a new unit needs to be installed.

Spike in Utility Bill

When an AC unit begins failing, it will often use more power in its effort to keep the home sufficiently cool. Rather than paying this increase in your energy bill, you can save money over the long haul by installing a new, energy-efficient unit.

Not Blowing Cold Air

It's possible that a thorough cleaning of your ducts/vents could remedy this issue. But this could also be symptomatic of a more complex mechanical problem that should be handled by an HVAC specialist.

Old Age

Typically, an AC unit can function efficiently for ten to fifteen years, at which point there's a good chance it could start to cost you more to operate. Even if your older model is still working, it could be better to invest in a brand new model that won't have to work as hard to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.
