There are several ways to know if it’s time for a new AC installation:
The top reason it might be time for a new AC system is due to failure or the age of the system. While some HVAC companies say ACs have shorter lifespans, a properly taken care of AC system should last approximately 15-20 years. After that time, the AC is much more likely to fail or need extensive repairs. If your air conditioner is 15 years old or more, you should schedule an appointment with an HVAC specialist to make sure it will be up to the task of colling your home through another stifling St. Louis, MO summer.
Another reason it might be time for a new air conditioner is when you keep spending money on various repairs. A qualified and honest HVAC specialist in St. Louis, MO will be able to check the health of your system 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:
After the inspection, they’ll be able to give you a price for any repairs your system needs and advise if you’re better off installing a new AC. 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 considering that more modern units will lower your electricity bill.
Another reason you may be better off with a new AC unit is if you find yourself making a sequence of yearly repairs. For instance, say you spend money on refrigerant annually, your system has a leak and replacing the lost refrigerant will not fix the leak. As the cost 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 unit functional than you would on a brand new, more energy-efficient system that would be covered under warranty.
Although it won’t be practical for every property owner, it may be worth it to replace your furnace when you have your new AC installed. If your furnace also getting up there in age, some factors to consider:
When it’s time to replace your cooling system, making the right choices about your new AC unit can reduce your energy bills and make your home cooler than ever before. The 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 expectations. There are a couple things to keep in mind when choosing a new unit for your AC installation:
Variable capacity ACs and heat pumps don’t just turn on and run at full power. Instead, 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 improve indoor air quality.
