There are several ways to know if your home might need a new AC installation:
The top reason it might be time for a new AC system is if it fails or is approaching the end of its lifespan. While some HVAC technicians assert shorter lifespans, a well maintained AC system should be able to cool your home for about 15-20 years. After that time, the risk of failure or need for expensive repairs goes up dramatically. If your system is getting up there in age, you should schedule an appointment with an HVAC technicians to ensure it will be up to the task of colling your home through another hot Clayton, MO summer.
Another reason your home may require a new air conditioner is when you keep spending money on various repairs. A professional and truthful HVAC expert in Clayton, MO will be able to check the health of your unit and tell you if you are likely to end up paying more by sticking with your current system. You should request an appointment with an HVAC company for AC repair if your unit shows any of the following symptoms:
After the inspection, they’ll be able to give you a price for any repairs your system needs and advise if it may make more sense to install a new system. Most older AC units quit because of a failed compressor or a leaking coil. Fixing those is very expensive, and for units that are up there in age, more often than not it’s more cost effective to install a new AC – especially considering that more modern units will reduce your monthly energy bills.
Another reason you may be better off with a new AC unit is if you find yourself making a sequence of annual repairs. For example, say you have to add refrigerant annually, your system has a leak and replacing the lost refrigerant will not repair the leak. As the price of refrigerant goes up yearly, so will the annual repair cost. At some point you’ll end up paying more just trying to keep that unit working than you would on a brand new unit that would lower your monthly bills and would be covered by a warranty.
Although it may not be a good idea for every property owner, you may want to replace your furnace when you get your AC installation. If your furnace also getting up there in age, you may want to consider the following:

The Clayton, MO HVAC professionals at SmartHouse can help you find the system is correctly sized for your home and meets your cost and efficiency needs. There are two important factors to consider when choosing a new unit for your AC installation:
Variable capacity ACs and heat pumps don’t cycle on and off as a single-stage system does. Rather, they run almost constantly and vary their speed to keep your home consistently at your desired temperature. By sizing itself to how much heat you need removed, variable capacity systems are more energy efficient and increase indoor air quality.
