These symptoms can mean a number of things for your AC unit. If your system is less than a decade old, these red flags most likely just mean that a repair is needed. If the appliance is aging and you’re seeing several of these signs, though, your most practical choice may be to upgrade to a new cooling system.
To ensure that you’re making the prudent decision, one of our trained cooling professionals can carefully inspect and diagnose your air conditioner. If it appears that your system could continue to operate efficiently after a repair job, our technician will let you know. Alternatively, they’ll tell it to you straight if your best option is to invest in a replacement appliance.
If you choose to replace your dwindling air conditioner with a brand-new one, you’ll receive significantly improved cooling results this spring and summer. Like all HVAC appliances, air conditioners are at their most powerful, efficient, and healthy during their first few years of operation. With a new unit, you’ll immediately have greater control over your home’s climate.
In addition to keeping the house nice and cool, your new AC unit will effectively control the humidity of your air, preventing the home from becoming too damp or muggy. You’ll also see your monthly electricity costs reduced, as your new air conditioner will be able to circulate air smoothly without burning up excessive amounts of energy. Plus, that smooth operation will mean that the system’s components won’t take on too much strain, so breakdowns and equipment malfunctions will be very unlikely.
