Here’s our list of the top 5 signs it may be time for
an air conditioning unit replacement!
Your system is over ten years old
A well-maintained air conditioner lasts about 15 years. However, if you’re constantly having a service tech come out to make repairs, it may be time to upgrade your system. Moreover, this is true when you consider the advancements in efficiency being made in AC units; especially in the last decade.
High Utility Bills
If your energy bills have been through the roof lately, it could have something to do with your cooling system that is simply working too hard to get the job done. This is a sign that it’s probably time to upgrade your unit. In the long run, you will save more money with an efficiently running system rather than an outdated unit trying to keep up.
If it seems as though your system is constantly breaking down, maybe it’s time to invest in a new system. HVAC repair costs can really add up. Save yourself some money by making the changer to a brand new system.
Your system uses R-22 Freon
Freon is being phased out by the federal government in order to conserve energy nationwide. As a result, the costs of Freon are rising exponentially. If your system uses R-22, you’ll have to replace it eventually in order to switch over to the new refrigerant R-410.
Your AC unit is noisy
Is your AC unit louder than it used to be? The presence of loud noises such as grinding, squeaking, or chattering is never normal. Most AC units are supposed to operate at a noise level that is barely detectable, so if your cooling system is drawing attention to itself, it’s probably time to upgrade.
