Signs It May Be Time to Replace Your Current Air Conditioning Unit

Last updated 4 years ago

No one wants to find out that they have a broken air conditioner in the middle of a sweltering heat wave. By recognizing the signs that you have a failing unit in advance, you can get your air conditioner replaced before you and your family need it most. Prevent a problem before it begins by looking for these signs that your air conditioning unit may be in need of replacement.

Just like all appliances, air conditioners have a shelf life. If your HVAC system is nearing the one decade mark, it may be time to consider a replacement. While the need for a new system may seem like an unfortunate scenario, replacement can actually have several benefits. Not only will a new model provide you with increased energy efficiency and lower electrical bills, but you’ll also see improved air quality and reduced carbon emissions.

Uncomfortable Environment
If you are having difficulty stabilizing your home’s indoor environment, it may be time for a new HVAC system. Improper equipment operation, duct problems, leaky ductwork, and inadequate insulation can all contribute to environmental inconsistencies such as rooms that are too hot or too cold, high humidity, and more. Eliminate these inconveniences by installing a new HVAC system that can help to sustain a comfortable environment in your home.

Excessive Dust and Noise
Home pollutants can also be a sign that your HVAC system is no longer functioning as it should. Leaky ducts can cause dust to circulate and be redistributed throughout your home, impacting not only the number of times you need to dust in a given week, but also the air quality inside of your home. Alternately, a noisy system could signal a problem with the indoor coil of your cooling equipment or another alternate malfunction.
