There are several ways to know if your home might need a new AC installation:
The top reason you might need a new AC system is if it fails or is approaching the end of its lifespan. While some HVAC companies assert shorter lifespans, a adequately taken care of AC system should be able to cool your home for about 15-20 years. After that time, the unit is much more likely to fail or need extensive repairs. If your unit is 15 years old or more, you should schedule an appointment with an HVAC technicians to ensure it can handle another hot Kirkwood, MO summer.
Another reason your home may require a new air conditioner is when the cost of repairs becomes expensive. A professional and truthful HVAC technician in Kirkwood, MO will be able to check the health of your unit and tell you if the cost of repairs makes it worthwhile to stick with your old system. You should call an heating and cooling specialist for AC repair if your unit shows any of the following symptoms:
After the inspection, they’ll be able to present you with a quote for needed repairs and advise if it may make more sense to install a new system. The cause of death for an older AC unit is usually a failed compressor or a leaking coil. Those are both very expensive repairs, and for units that are up there in age, it’s typically better from a budget standpoint to install a new AC – especially given that newer units will lower your electricity bill.
Another reason you may need to replace your AC is if you keep having to invest in a series of yearly repairs. For example, say you spend money on refrigerant every year, your system has a leak and replacing the lost refrigerant will not repair the leak. As the cost of refrigerant increases every year, you’ll have to spend more money each year. At some point you’ll wind up spending more money just trying to keep that unit going than you would on a brand new unit that would lower your energy bills and would be covered under warranty.
While it won’t make sense for every property owner, you may want to replace your furnace at the same time you have your new AC installed. If your heating system a similar age as your AC unit, replacing it as well might benefit you in a few different ways:
