We are committed to keeping our customers safe, comfortable, and system replacement is sometimes the best step in preventing future issues. There are a few signs that your system may need to be replaced soon:
This may seem obvious, but if your A/C is ten years or older, you should start preparing to replace it. Unlike your furnace system, air conditioners are often outdoors and exposed to extreme conditions during the year. This reduces their life expectancy. Today’s modern air conditioners can last between 15 and 20 years, but your older air conditioners last around 10-12 years.
The longevity of your A/C depends on a number of factors, including whether or not you properly maintained the unit as time has gone on. If you skipped the yearly A/C tune-ups, this can affect the lifespan. It can also be affected by usage, the temperatures in your area, and if unit was sized correctly for your home when it was installed.
If you’re getting annual A/C tune-ups from qualified technicians, you can rest easy that your unit will not have any issues over the Summer months. Many common A/C issues are due to a lack of maintenance. Our technicians are also able to preemptively spot and repair any issues your A/C they may find before the Summer season begins.
Frequent breakdowns also mean frequent repairs, and the cost of those repairs can add up. At a certain point, it might be more economical to purchase a new unit rather than sinking money into expensive repairs—especially if your warranty has expired.
Your Energy Bills Have Skyrocketed
Unless there are any sudden changes in your home’s energy use, your energy bill should stay around the same amount every month, fluctuating a bit for furnace and A/C season. If your energy use habits have stayed the same but your monthly bill has noticeably increased, it might be time for a new air conditioner.
Higher energy bills can indicate that your air conditioner is either malfunctioning or losing efficiency. Energy bills often start rising as an air conditioner gets older, so the two issues can be related.
Receiving a high energy bill once or twice isn’t a cause for alarm. However, if your energy bills go up and don’t come down, you might need to start looking for a new A/C.
