Dos your air conditioner need updating?
Are you tired of throwing money into repairs every summer? If so, it’s time to consider replacing it. Air conditioning units are big investments and when it comes time for replacement, it is a decision that should be weighed carefully. Not sure if your air conditioner needs to be replaced? Here are some helpful tips to help you determine what the best course of action is.

  1. The loud unit.
    Does your air conditioning system make a ton of noise when it is being used? Loud noises are not usually a good sign, as this could show that the system is either broken or at the end of its life. Your system should be quiet and new systems today are so quiet, that sometimes you won’t even know that it’s on!
  2. The inefficient unit.
    The sun is out, the weather is getting warmer, and as soon as you turn on the air conditioner, you notice a big spike in your utility bill: sound familiar? If so, look closely at where your energy is being allotted. Is it because of your air conditioning use? If so, your system is probably inefficient and as it gets older, it will continue to get more and more so. Rising utility bills are an indicator that your system is not functioning efficiently and you should consider replacing it.
  3. The old unit.
    Air conditioning units won’t last forever, especially when they are used for year after year. Consider how old the unit is and how reliable it will be for your home in the coming year. If you have already called out the technicians for repair a lot in prior years and the technology on the machine is outdated, there are options for a new system that will meet your budget. Air conditioning units made today come with a variety of advanced upgrades that will end up saving you time and money because of their reliability and energy efficiency.
  4. The expensive-to-repair unit.
    How much are you paying for air conditioning repair every year? If it is in the thousands of dollars range, it’s time to consider replacing the machine. You don’t have to get a fancy machine that has all of the bells and whistles. There are a variety of new systems out there that are basic and do the job well. No matter what your budget is, we’ll help you find something that won’t break the bank. And just think – you won’t need to have the repairman out there all the time trying to fix the latest problem!

    Brooke, my husband and I moved into our home about it a year ago. The house was about 15 years old when we bought it. The other day we noticed that the house was really warm even though the air conditioning was on. How long do air conditioners last? Should we think about getting a new one?

      Hi Emily!
      Air conditioning units typically last about 15-16 years in our climate. Maintenance and servicing the units can help them last longer. We’re happy to come out and take a look at your unit to see what’s going on with it and advise if a replacement or repair is needed.
      Thanks for writing!
