There are a few situations in which your home might need a new AC installation:
The main reason it might be time for a new AC system is due to failure or the age of the system. While some HVAC contractors assert shorter lifespans, a properly taken care of AC unit should last roughly 15-20 years. After that time, the risk of failure or need for extensive repairs increases dramatically. If your system is getting up there in age, you should schedule an appointment with an HVAC specialist to ensure it can handle another sweltering Lake St. Louis, MO summer.
Another reason it might be time for a new air conditioner is when the cost of repairs becomes expensive. A qualified and honest HVAC specialist in Lake St. Louis, MO will be able to inspect your AC and tell you if the cost of repairs makes it worthwhile to get a new system installed. You should call an HVAC company for AC repair if your unit shows any of the following symptoms:
Once a certified HVAC technician has inspected your system, they’ll be able to give you an estimate for any repairs your system needs and advise if it may make more sense to install a new system. Most older AC units fail because of a failed compressor or a leaking coil. Fixing those is very expensive, and for units that are up there in age, it’s usually better from a budget standpoint to install a new AC – especially considering that more modern units will reduce your monthly energy bills.
Another reason you may need to replace your AC is if you find yourself making a series of annual repairs. For instance, say you have to add refrigerant annually, your system has a leak and replacing the lost refrigerant will not fix the the issue. As the price of refrigerant increases yearly, you’ll have to spend more money each year. At some point you’ll end up spending more money just trying to keep that system working than you would installing a new unit that would lower your energy bills and would be covered under warranty.
Although it won’t be practical for every homeowner, 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:
When you a determine a new AC installation is best for your home, choosing the right AC system make your home more comfortable and energy efficient than ever before. The Lake St. Louis, MO HVAC experts at SmartHouse can help you find the AC is the right size for your home and meets your cost and efficiency needs.

Variable capacity ACs and heat pumps don’t cycle on and off as a single-stage system does. Instead, they run almost constantly and vary how much power they use to keep your home consistently at your desired temperature. By sizing itself to how much heat you need removed, variable capacity systems lower energy bills and increase indoor air quality.
