Knowing When to Replace Your Air Conditioner

Heating and air conditioning units

A faulty air conditioner can cause a range of problems in your home relating to your finances as well as your general comfort; this is why it helps to have a working relationship with an air conditioning service in Tucson. Read on for a few signs that might indicate it is time to replace your air conditioner.

Your Energy Bills Are Skyrocketing

After a few years with the same air conditioning system, you should probably have some idea of what your normal range of energy use will be for any given season. If you find that your energy bills are steadily increasing with no end in sight, however, you should treat this as a significant red flag for your unit. A decrease in efficiency means that something is malfunctioning; you can either pay to have the part fixed, or pay to have a newer and more efficient system installed instead.

Your Home Is No Longer Comfortable

If your air conditioner does not keep your home comfortable, then it is not working properly. A failing air conditioner might malfunction in a number of different ways. Your dying unit might cool your home unevenly, or it might fail to cool your home at all. Before you toss your unit, however, it is wise to look into the condition of your air ducts and your insulation. If your air conditioner turns out to be the sole culprit, it is probably time for a replacement.

Your Unit Is Getting Old

You might have a sentimental attachment to the air conditioner that has been through so much with you, but an AC does not last forever. If your air conditioner is getting towards a decade in age, get a jump on the game and look for a replacement now.
