Watch For These Warnings That You Need To Upgrade Your AC
- Excessive age: The manufacturer of your air conditioner set an estimated lifespan for the system. Although it’s possible to exceed this number with the proper maintenance care, you should still give serious consideration to replacing the unit if it has gone a few years past this. The chance of the system starting to decline and waste money increases with each year past this estimate—it’s safer to get ahead of these problems.
- Extremely noisy operation: An AC that makes constant clanging, grinding, and groaning sounds has probably aged past the point where it can efficiently do its job; the components are too worn down to work well. A single unusual noise can mean a problem a targeted repair can fix. But with an older system, constant sounds are a sign of an impending breakdown… unless you replace the system first.
- Elevated utility bills (with no relief in sight): When your electrical bills start to rise while the AC regularly operates, than the system has probably permanently lost its efficiency. If maintenance and repairs do nothing to stop the rise of electrical costs, than the air conditioner is no longer worth keeping, and it’s time to arrange for a new installation.
