How Do You Know When It's Time to Replace Your Air Conditioning System?
Wednesday, April 08, 2015
We depend on our heating and air conditioning systems to keep us comfortable, but all good things must come to an end.
When you start having heating and air conditioning performance issues, you might be tempted to call a repair team. But this is a crucial moment of decision – do you continue throwing money toward repairs or do you save yourself the futility and make a clean start with a new investment?
As with all relationships, your air conditioner will start to display the telltale signs that it’s over:
- Too Much Hot Air
Uneven temperatures throughout the house indicate your system is struggling to equalize thermostat settings. There could be a couple explanations for this, but fundamental operational issues are never good and generally require a large repair. A general life expectancy for most systems won’t exceed 15 years, so if your system is approaching this age then wear/tear could account for persistent problems.
- Too Noisy
Is your air conditioner trying to tell you something? Do you only hear an annoying, wheezing noise when it’s running? This could be an indication of more than just communication problems. Noisy operations are a sign your unit is struggling to deliver cool air throughout your home.
- Spending Money to Fix Problems
Have you already experienced expensive, demanding repairs in the recent past? If repair situations are arising more frequently, you might need to accept the fact that money won’t fix things between the two of you. Save yourself the heartbreak of wasting more time on a doomed HVAC relationship and save up to invest in a system that will treat you the way you deserve to be treated!
