Even the best HVAC systems break down after a while. Eventually, you’ll need to upgrade to a new air conditioning system.
Here are some signs that it’s time to replace your AC.
1. It’s Old
If your air conditioning system is old, you should probably get a new one.
It’s recommended that you replace your AC if it’s more than 10 years old, as newer air conditioning systems, besides working better than older ones, are also more energy efficient and cost less to run.
2. Repair Expenses Are Piling Up
If you need to call a repair service every month, you probably should just upgrade your entire AC system.
Over time, it will save you more money.
In addition, if you’re facing an expensive repair job, you should compare the costs of the repairs and the costs of replacing your entire HVAC system.
3. It’s Inefficient
Sometimes, your AC just isn’t doing its job properly anymore.
If you’re having difficulties keeping your home cool and your humidity levels low, your AC may be at fault.
If there is a lot of dust around your home, it may be because of an air conditioning leak, which you’ll want to get checked out.
4. There Are Noise and Odors
Are there funny noises coming from your AC?
What about unpleasant odors?
These are both common signs of a faulty air conditioning system, and so need investigating.
5. Call a Professional First
Before deciding to replace your AC system, call a professional.
They’ll be able to determine whether a one-time repair will be sufficient, or whether you’re better off upgrading your entire system.
