Signs You Need a New Air Conditioner

Most air conditioners last about 20 years on average, depending on the model and usage conditions. Call us to talk about AC installation if you notice any of the symptoms listed below.

Lack of Cold Air

The most obvious sign you need a new air conditioner is an inability to produce cold air. A lack of cool air can result from several issues, like broken coils, a broken air handler, or dirty filters. A lack of cold air could also be from a coolant leak or a mechanical problem in the evaporator, air handler, or condenser.

Excessive Moisture

An air conditioner will produce some condensation and moisture under normal operation. However, your AC should not leak or form standing pools of water. Excessive moisture is a sign your drain lines are broken or your coils are not working properly. Sometimes, the moisture will freeze and create frost on the coils and exterior of the machine.

Bad Smells

Your AC should create neutral-smelling air and not have a smell. If the air coming from your vents has a musty smell, it could mean that your vents have mold or mildew growing in them. A smoky or burning smell can be a sign that your air conditioner unit is experiencing electrical problems.

Spiking Utility Bills

As your AC ages, it becomes less efficient and can’t produce cold air as well. If your AC bill starts to spike uncharacteristically in the summer, it could mean your system is going to die soon. Replacing your AC unit will not only lower your energy bills but ensure optimal energy consumption with new models.

Poor Airflow

Low airflow often means your motor is dying or you may have dirty or clogged filters and vents. We’ll start by checking your air filters, but if that doesn’t fix the issue, replacing the entire unit will likely be more cost-effective rather than replacing the motor.

It depends on the size and type of AC you have. The typical central AC unit should take about eight hours to install, which is about one workday. Installing larger systems takes more time, all other things being equal. Ductless mini-split air conditioning systems take less time to install because they are smaller and have fewer parts. 

The average central air AC unit has a lifespan of about 15 to 20 years. Regular maintenance can extend your AC unit’s lifespan by an additional three to five years. When the cost of repairs is close to the cost of a new air conditioning system, replacing your old AC can be a good idea. Modern AC models are much more energy efficient.

EER stands for seasonal energy efficiency ratio and is essentially a measure of how energy efficient air conditioners are. Manufacturers calculate SEER ratings by considering the total electrical consumption and cooling capacity. The higher the SEER number, the more efficient the unit is and the less you’ll spend on energy costs. 

Residential ACs have a minimum required SEER rating of 13, while high-quality models have SEER ratings between 16 and 20. 

Having an incorrectly sized air conditioner makes your system less efficient and puts unnecessary strain on your AC. For every square foot of living space, you typically need 1 BTU of cooling power. So a 1,000-square-foot house would need an AC with a 20,000 BTU capacity, depending on ceiling height, layout, and other factors.
