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 due to failure or the age of the system. While some HVAC companies assert shorter lifespans, a well maintained AC system should last about 15-20 years. After that time, the risk of failure or need for extensive repairs goes up dramatically. If your unit is getting up there in age, you should schedule routine HVAC maintenance to make sure it can handle another stifling St. Louis, MO summer.
Another reason it might be time for a new air conditioner is when the cost of repairs becomes expensive. A professional and truthful HVAC specialist in St. Louis, MO will be able to inspect your AC 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 heating and cooling specialist for AC repair if your unit is suffering from any of the following:
Once a certified HVAC technician has inspected your system, they’ll be able to give you an estimate for needed repairs and tell you 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. Those are both very expensive repairs, and for units that are up there in age, more often than not it’s better from a price perspective 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 annual repairs. For example, say you spend money on refrigerant every year, your system has a leak and replacing the lost refrigerant will not fix the leak. As the cost of refrigerant goes up every year, you’ll have to spend more money each year. At some point you’ll end up paying more just trying to keep that unit going than you would on a brand new, more energy-efficient system that would be covered by a warranty.
While it won’t be worth it for every homeowner, it may be worth it to replace your furnace at the same time you have your new AC installed. If your heating system also getting up there in age, you may want to consider the following:
When it’s time to replace your cooling system, making the right choices about your new AC unit can make your home more comfortable and energy efficient than ever before. The St. Louis, MO HVAC professionals at SmartHouse can help you find the system is the right size for your home and meets your cost and efficiency expectations. 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. Instead, they run throughout the day and night and vary their speed based on how much energy is needed to keep your home at a desired temperature. By sizing itself to how much heat you need removed, variable capacity systems lower energy bills and increase indoor air quality.
