5 Signs You Need to Replace Your Air Conditioning Unit

There are certain things that may cause you to need an air conditioning replacement. While sometimes your air conditioner will just stop working, most of the time there will be signs you can look for which may prevent you having to call for emergency services, and save you money in the long run.

When an air conditioner is getting to the end of its life span, it will begin to work less efficiently, if your air conditioner is more than 10 years old, you may want to consider replacing your system before it starts showing signs. Not only will you save money on repairs later in its life, but new technology is significantly improved when it comes to energy usage.

Five Signs Your AC Unit Is At the End of Its Life

Watch for these five signs, and if you suspect your air conditioner may need repairs, or replacement, contact us at Jack Lehr Heating, Cooling, & Electric.

  1. Your energy bills have risen significantly without a big change in the season’s temperature. As air conditioners age they may need to work harder to cool your home, this can quickly raise your energy usage.
  2. You have compared your energy costs to those that live around you and have discovered that your energy costs are much higher. If your system is older than 10 years old, you may want to consider replacing the current unit.
  3. You have had to make calls to your air conditioner technician several times throughout the season. Having to make repairs to your current system too often can be a sign that your air conditioner is reaching the end of its life.
  4. There are loud or unusual noises coming from your air conditioner. Loud noises can be a sign that your system has missing parts, air leaks, or is having trouble working to its full capacity.
  5. You have inconsistencies in temperature throughout your home. When you have colder or warmer pockets throughout your home this can be due to your air conditioner not being able to meet the cooling demands throughout your home.
