Typically most HVAC systems last between 10 and 15 years before needing to consider replacement. Receiving routine air conditioning maintenance helps your system last longer. Eventually, though, all systems need to be replaced. This can be a complex process, as there are a wide range of prices, brands, styles and types of units available. At All Things HVAC we will provide you with our expert knowledge to help you make the best choice for your home or business when replacing your air conditioning system. We have a wide variety of air conditioning systems available, including ductless mini-split systems and central air conditioners. Most importantly, we will work with you to choose the option that makes the most sense for your replacement budget and your needs.

When You Should Consider Replacing your Air Conditioning System:

  • Your air conditioner is 10 years or older and not running like it used to.
  • You’re experiencing higher energy costs.
  • Your air conditioner uses R-22 refrigerant.
  • You’ve made recent renovations or additions to your home.

Signs That Show Your Air Conditioner Needs Replacment

Air conditioning products will provide indicators that something is wrong when they begin to not work as well. It’s important not to ignore these signals, because they can affect your family’s health and well-being.

Warm Air

Sometimes your Air Conditioning unit just needs a minute to adjust, and warm air is not a big issue. If it is taking longer than a few minutes for your AC to begin emitting cool air though, it may be time to call in our technicians.

Insufficient Airflow

When your Air Conditioning turns on you should notice a temperature change in every room of your home or business. When airflow is insufficient, some rooms will not feel as cool as others, while others will be freezing. A professional can help get your air distributing evenly.

Short Cycling

If your Air Conditioning is turning on frequently, even when temperature hasn’t changed, called short cycling, it is a major sign that it needs to be replaced.

High Humidity

When humidity levels are too high in your home it will make it feel hotter than it actually is. Ideal levels are between 30 and 50 percent. Humidity above 50 percent will cause your older AC system to continually run to overcompensate. If you are experiencing this issue it’s time to update your system with a replacement.

Water Leaks

Water leaking from your air-conditioning unit can be caused from a number of things including: a disconnected or clogged drain line, frozen evaporator coils, or an overflowing or cracked drip pan. If your Air Conditioning is leaking water you should contact a professional to analyze the problem.

Air Smells Bad

Bad odors coming from your air conditioner could mean many things. Depending on the odor, a bad smell could mean a motor overheating, a clogged drain pan, dirty evaporator coils, the presence of excess moisture causing mold or mildew, or even a gas leak (rotten eggs). If your air conditioner has a bad smell, call one of our technicians who will analyze the issue quickly. *If you are experiencing the smell of rotten eggs, do not operate anything electrical or have any open flames, turn off the gas to your home from the meter if possible, evacuate the house immediately and contact the gas company.

Strange Noises

If your Air Conditioning unit is making noises like banging, clanking, buzzing or clicking it may be a sign that something is wrong with your unit and it needs replacement.

Higher Energy Bills

If your Air Conditioning is not running efficiently it can cause your energy bills to increase. Older and malfunctioning units have to run longer to try to reach the temperature set on the thermostat. Our technician will analyze your system to determine whether it is the reason for your higher energy costs.

Recurring Problems

An air conditioner that is having to be repaired often may end up costing you more in the long run then having it replaced with a new unit. Fighting to keep an old unit running is not worth the stress and frustration, not to mention the continued drain from your wallet.

If you have been experiencing any of these issues with your air-conditioning system, give us a call at All Things HVAC. We’ll promptly assess the problem and determine whether your unit is worth repairing or needs to be replaced with a newer more efficient unit. We will only recommend replacing your system if it is determined to be the best option for your needs.
