Feb 15, 2017
Air Conditioning units aren’t cheap. That’s why we go to such great lengths to take care of them. Air conditioning maintenance and proper AC repair will do wonders for the lifespan of your system, but nothing lasts forever. So how do you know when it’s time to replace your unit?
There are a few signs you can look for to help you decide between an ac repair and and ac replacement service. FL Green Team has put together a few key factors to help you determine whether it’s time to replace your AC. Put your system through our checklist to see if a new unit is best for you.
You Find Yourself Making More Frequent Repairs
When it comes to your AC, do you feel like something is always going wrong? As your system gets older, it begins to break down more and more. You’ll find yourself fixing one repair only to discover something else breaking down a few weeks or months down the road. If you’re starting to notice this pattern, then it’s time to look into an AC Replacement.
Your Electric Bill Has Spiked
If your system is 10 years or older, and you noticed an increase in your electric bill due to your AC unit running constantly, it may be time to say goodbye to your old unit and hello to a replacement. The answer starts with a home service visit by one of our FL Green Team Technicians. During the visit, he will diagnose why your AC unit isn’t operating efficiently. If it is due to old age, we will recommend a replacement option, such as a Goodman, Rheem or Trane model.
High Humidity in Your Home
Is your home feeling muggy? High humidity generated by your air conditioning system is a sign that it may be time to replace it.
Odd Noises Coming From Your AC
If you start to notice strange noises, such as rattling or a high pitched sound, it may be an indication of loose parts or a failing motor. Don’t wait for a problem to arise before addressing this issue. If it’s a isolated problem, we may be able to repair it. However, if your motor is failing or it’s due to overall wear and tear on an old unit, a replacement may be in order.
Spotty Heating and Cooling
Does your system have trouble cooling your home, or perhaps you’re finding warm or cold spots around your house? If your system isn’t able to keep up with the job, it may be ready to retire it.
