Is It Time To Start Thinking About A New AC System?
7 Signs It Is Time to Replace Your Air Conditioner
How do you know when you need a new air conditioner? While a regularly serviced unit will provide optimal service, even a well-maintained AC can run into problems. Here are some typical signs that it might be time to replace your air conditioner:
- Inconsistent Temperatures: Does your air conditioner cool some rooms while others remain hot? Uneven cooling could be a sign that your AC is on its way out.
- Poor Air Flow: Diminished air flow from your vents is typically an indication of compressor problems and that you might need a new AC. Call our experienced HVAC technicians to have your unit checked.
- Strange Sounds: Turn off your AC immediately if you hear unusual sounds like banging, grinding or squealing. Some parts could be broken or worn out. Bi-County’s heating and cooling professionals can help you determine whether it needs repair or replacement.
- Humidity in Your Home: An important function of your air conditioner is to remove the excess moisture from your home. If you find it is humid even when the AC is on, replacement might be in the cards.
- AC Unit Will Not Turn On: There could be a variety of reasons ranging from a faulty motor, to the unit not receiving proper power supply, a defective electronic control board or problems with wiring. Consult our experienced AC repair technician but be prepared to replace it if necessary.
- Frequent Repairs: If you find yourself requiring repairs to your air conditioner more than once a year, purchasing a new high-performance model might be more cost-effective.
- Rising Cooling Bills: If your utility bills are going up during the summer months consider installing a new cooling system. Replacing a 10-year old model with a more efficient one can help reduce your electricity bills by 20-40%.
