There are a few situations in which it’s time for a new AC installation:
The main reason you might need a new AC system is due to failure or the age of the system. While some HVAC technicians claim shorter lifespans, a adequately maintained AC unit should last roughly 15-20 years. After that time, the unit is much more likely to fail or need considerable repairs. If your unit is 15 years old or more, you should schedule an appointment with an HVAC specialist to ensure it can handle another hot Lake St. Louis, MO summer.
Another reason your home may require a new air conditioner is when the cost of repairs becomes expensive. A professional and honest HVAC expert in Lake St. Louis, 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 request an appointment with a professional for AC repair if your unit is experiencing any of the following:
Once a knowledgeable HVAC technician has inspected your system, they’ll be able to give you an estimate for needed repairs 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. Those are both very expensive repairs, and for older systems, more often than not it’s more cost effective to install a new AC – especially given 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 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 fix the leak. As the price of refrigerant goes up 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 installing a new unit that would lower your energy bills and would be covered by a warranty.
While it won’t make sense for every homeowner, it may be worth it to replace your furnace at the same time you get your AC installation. If your furnace a similar age as your AC unit, you may want to consider the following:
When it’s time to replace your cooling system, getting the right AC system reduce your energy bills and make your home cooler than ever before. The Lake St. Louis, MO HVAC professionals at SmartHouse can help you find the unit is correctly sized for your home and meets your cost and efficiency needs.

By sizing itself to the level of cooling you need, variable capacity systems are more energy efficient and improve indoor air quality.
