Signs You Need a New Air Conditioner
Like all mechanical devices and equipment, time will eventually catch up with your air conditioner system. If you notice any of the following signs, contact a reputable HVAC company to have a technician inspect the condition of the system to help you decide whether it needs to be replaced.
Air conditioners typically have a lifespan of 15-20 years if they’ve received regular maintenance. If your air conditioner is near or over 15 years and is running inefficiently or breaking down frequently, consider AC replacement service. Although new air conditioners are a significant investment, you’ll recoup some of the money with lower energy bills and decreased repairs.
It’s not uncommon for an air conditioner to need an occasional repair. However, if you’re frequently calling your HVAC company due to issues with your AC unit and the unit is old and inefficient, it makes more sense to replace the system.
Rising Energy Bills
If your recent energy bill caused you to do a double-take, it could be because your air conditioner is running inefficiently and needs to be replaced.
Is your air conditioner keeping you up at night with loud, jarring noises? If so, it’s trying to tell you something! Banging or grinding noises often indicate a loose or broken part, and you should have your system inspected as soon as possible.
Odd smells are also a sign that something is wrong with your air conditioner. A musty smell could be a signal that mold is growing in or around your unit, likely due to a clogged condensate drain line. A burning smell, meanwhile, may indicate an electrical issue that can cause smoke or fire.
Are some rooms in your home cooler than others? Uneven cooling is a sign that your air conditioner is running efficiently or the system is struggling to cool your home properly. You may need to have the system replaced to restore efficiency and cooling power.
What to Look for in a New Air Conditioning System
It’s probably been a while since you were in the market for a new air conditioning system, and you may not know what to look for. Hill-Air can help. We’ll show you a variety of different models and help you determine which one is best for your budget and comfort needs. Some of the factors to consider when buying a new air conditioner include:
- Size. The size of your air conditioner refers to its cooling capacity, not physical size. Size is one of the most important components when choosing an AC unit. We determine this by doing a load calculation for every AC installation. We show our customers how we determine the right size unit for their home, so they understand why we recommend particular units. A unit that is too small for the size of your home will work too hard to cool your home, leading to wear and tear. Meanwhile, a system that’s too large will waste energy and cost more to operate.
- Efficiency. An air conditioner’s efficiency is determined by its Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio rating. A minimum SEER2 rating of 14 is required for cooling systems in Ohio. The higher the SEER2 rating, the more efficient the unit is, which will improve efficiency and lower energy bills.
- Noise Level. If you want a quiet air conditioner, consider buying a unit with a lower decibel level. A decibel level between 50-60 is generally considered quiet.
