Is it Time For A New Air Conditioner?
Air conditioning units are designed to provide relief from the sweltering heat of the outdoors for several months of the year. While an air conditioning unit is expected to last for a long time, there will be a day when it comes time to replace it with a newer unit. Below we have outlined some common signs that it may be time to replace your air conditioner.
Excessive Dust & Noise
One of the main reasons to replace your air conditioner is that it has leaky ductwork, which can cause your AC to work harder to cool your home, and potentially produce excessive indoor dust. If you notice that the unit is making more noise than usual or other strange noises, it may be a sign that your ductwork is in need of repairs or replacement.
Inconsistent Humidity Levels
When an air conditioner unit is functioning properly, it will remove most of your home's humidity and maintain a consistent temperature. If you notice inconsistent humidity levels, it may be a sign that your unit is malfunctioning, you are having ductwork issues, or experiencing another issue. Our HVAC technicians at Spoor's Heating & Air Conditioning can inspect your unit and your ductwork and make any necessary maintenance or repairs.
Age Of Current Air Conditioner
The typical lifespan of an air conditioner unit is 15 to 20 years, and they are known to steadily decline in performance as they get older. Newer models of air conditioners have vastly improved when it comes to efficiency in the past 10 years, so even if your current unit is reliable, it may not be as efficient as one of the newer models. In addition, if your unit uses R22, a type of refrigerant, these units are being phased out to meet environmental regulations.
Increasing Cooling Costs
Increasing cooling costs is usually a sign that your unit isn't operating as efficiently as it used to, thus driving up your home's utility bills. If you notice that you are calling Spoor's Heating & Air Conditioning more than usual for any HVAC breakdowns, it may be time to consider the savings a HVAC unit replacement unit could bring.
