Besides a full-on breakdown, there are plenty of ways to tell when it’s time to replace your AC unit. When you keep an old unit working past its prime, it’s not only wasting energy, but it could be affecting your air quality too. So if you are noticing any of the below signs, it’s time for an upgrade!
If you hear some spooky noises coming out of your AC, don’t ignore it! Sounds coming from your heating or cooling system could be a wide variety of things. A duct system that is undersized or a problem with your indoor coil can all cause noises and they shouldn’t be ignored.
If you continually see a rise in your energy bill, it might be time for an upgrade. A system that is wasting energy might be past it’s prime. Upgrading to an energy efficient model can save you money in the long run.
It’s a Century Old
An AC unit that is ten years or older is at the end of its lifespan and could be in the running for retirement. Today’s systems are built to be energy efficient and can not only improve your energy but your air quality too.
Your Repairman is Your BFF
If you feel like you’re a continually getting your cooling system serviced, it might be a better idea to bite the bullet and get it replaced.
