Signs it is Time for a New AC Unit

Many homeowners know just how much it can cost to replace an HVAC unit, whether it be the heater or the air conditioner. AC replacement should be avoided as long as possible if your unit is fully functioning and efficient. The longevity of these units can often be extended with regular care and monitoring from Primary Air Home Services of the Aurora, Colorado, area. But how do you know when it is time to invest in a new system? Our technicians are here to provide a few signs that it might be time for the full replacement of your air conditioning unit.

What are some signs that it is time for a new AC unit?

Whenever possible, our NATE-certified technicians will help you reduce your overall costs with repairs to air conditioning units. However, there are certain situations that may arise during which our team may strongly encourage you to consider replacing your AC unit instead of repairing it. Below are just a few scenarios in which our team might make recommendations for replacement:

· The age of the HVAC or AC unit. The typical life expectancy for an air conditioning unit is between ten to fifteen years. If your unit is approaching or exceeding this specific age range, it might be time to consider replacing it with a newer and more efficient model. Knowing that your unit is getting older is a good time to start setting money aside for replacement when the need occurs.

· Frequent breakdowns and repairs. If you find yourself constantly calling on Primary Air Home Services for repairs on your AC unit, you might want to start considering the cost of repairs versus the cost of a brand-new unit and installation. In some cases, frequent breakdowns and repairs can actually end up costing you more in the long run than just putting money into a newer AC unit.

· Increasing cost for energy bills. As air conditioning units age, they will typically become less efficient and require more energy to cool your home. If you have noticed a steady increase in your monthly energy bills even despite regular maintenance and upkeep on your unit, it could be your AC or HVAC system on the downhill. Replacing your unit with a newer and more energy-efficient model could save you money on energy costs, and you might not even realize it until you get your new unit and see your first power bill!

· Uneven cooling throughout your home. If you notice that certain areas or rooms in your home are consistently cooler than others, it might be an indication that your AC unit is struggling to distribute the cool air evenly. This can be caused by a variety of issues, but it is definitely something to bring to the attention of our technicians from Primary Air Home Services.
