When is the right time to replace my Air Conditioner?

an air conditioning unit is replaced in columbia missouriThere’s a few com­mon tell-tale warn­ing signs that you’re cool­ing equip­ment needs to hit the scrap pile.  We’re fans of sav­ing as much as pos­si­ble and squeez­ing every penny out of old equip­ment, but here’s a great list. It may be time to call a pro­fes­sional AC  replace­ment com­pany to help you get up to today’s stan­dards if any of the below are true:

Your HVAC sys­tem or air con­di­tion­ing unit is more than ten years old.

More than 10 years old?  It’s a crap-out wait­ing to hap­pen.  You should con­sider replac­ing it with a unit that has an ENERGY STAR label. These will save you money, as  these high effi­ciency units can save up to 20 per­cent on heat­ing and cool­ing costs ver­sus older mod­els.  Those costs over just a few years pays for the new equipment.

Your fur­nace is more than 15 years old.

Same deal as above. Con­sider replac­ing with an ENERGY STAR fur­nace, these are 15% more effi­cient than a con­ven­tional fur­nace and add value to your home. It makes sense to replace both if you are going to replace your A/C as well.

Rooms in your house get too hot or too cold.

Old equip­ment plus older homes can meed irreg­u­lar tem­per­a­tures. This can also be a result of duct prob­lems or inad­e­quate insu­la­tion, but more than likely you just need a new AC unit.

Your home has humid­ity problems.

Poor equip­ment, air con­di­tion­ers about to crap out and poor instal­la­tion can lead to humid­ity issues. You’ll notice this in the sum­mer more than anything.

Your house is dusty.

Leaky ducts can pull par­ti­cles and air from attics, crawl spaces and base­ments and dis­trib­ute them through­out your house. Seal­ing your ducts may be a solu­tion. But more than likely, it’s your AC fil­ter not work­ing properly.

Your heat­ing or cool­ing sys­tem is noisy.

When things start ban­gin’, it’s a good sign that they are going to stop work­ing soon.  Save your­self the headache and get a good, new AC unit installed.
