Is it Time for Air Conditioner Service or Replacement?

January 05, 2016

When any big change in weather comes and we start taking calls about air conditioners that aren't generating cool air, the majority of them can be traced back to the lack of air conditioner service and maintenance. If air conditioner concerns are not addressed, your system may suddenly stop operating and leave you and your family out to dry. However, there are a few warning signs you can look out for to know when it's time for air conditioner service or replacement before your system breaks down.

Air Conditioner Age

The normal life expectancy of air conditioners is between 12-17 years. If your air conditioner is 15 years or older it's smart to start air conditioner shopping now. Selecting a new air conditioner isn't a decision you want to have to make in a hurry. Give yourself plenty of time to research and weigh all of your possibilities.

Increased Gas or Electric Bills

Air conditioners lose efficiency as they get older and your system will lose efficiency faster if it has not been properly maintained. Envision the extra money you're paying to the utility company as money that could be spent on a new, more efficient system.

More Frequent Air Conditioner Repairs

The last few years of an air conditioner’s life are when your system incurs the most breakdowns. Start adding up the money you've been spending on air conditioner repair the prior two years - a new system might be more cost efficient.

Strange Noises

Have you heard any odd noises coming from your system? Air conditioners start making odd noises around the end of their lifecycle. If your air conditioner is turning on and off frequently or blowing chilly air, it's time to look at getting your system replaced.

A Dry or Dusty Home

Older air conditioners don't humidify or filter the air in your home all that well. Your home can start feeling stuffy and any family members with allergies could notice more symptoms. Some other indicators are: static shocks, drooping plants and cracking furniture.
