How long have you been putting up with an air conditioning system that delivers less than adequate comfort during the dog days of summer? Maybe you haven’t noticed that your equipment has been struggling – so let us help open your eyes.
Here are a few indications that it’s time to replace your air conditioning system:
Even well-kept equipment can’t be expected to last more than 10-12 years. When equipment starts to reach the double digits, its efficiency and your comfort has already begun to go down hill.
Many noises are common with air conditioning systems, but when certain strange sounds begin emanating from the equipment, keep a close eye on it! This can indicate a problem with key components that would cost more to repair than it would to upgrade your system.
Likewise, if your air has a musty smell when the AC kicks on, this can indicate mold, mildew and bacteria buildup – which is being circulated every time you’re trying to enjoy the cool comfort of your system.
If you find yourself cranking the AC without getting much relief from the heat as you’d expect, there could be a blockage in the ducts or an issue with the compressor. Either way, it may be more cost effective to replace your equipment!
How often are you calling for service on your air conditioning system? If you’re spending more on keeping your AC running than you used to, it could be a sign of things to come!
Now that summer is beginning to wind down, it’s a great time to consider upgrading your air conditioning equipment! Not only will you save on cooling costs next year, you’ll enjoy more comfort.
