When Should I Replace My Air Conditioner?
The average lifespan of most air conditioners ranges between 15 and 20 years, so if yours is nearing that age, it’s probably time to start thinking about a new one. Though repairs can sometimes be made to extend the life of an air conditioning unit, once the system is older it usually makes more financial sense to replace. Old air conditioners are not as efficient leading to higher energy costs. Not to mention the price of repairs can add up quickly, leaving you paying more in the long run.
If your air conditioner is nearing 15 years of age, start paying attention to its effectiveness. If you notice a big change, call the professionals for brand new air conditioner installation in Ottawa. Look for any of these warning signs:
High Energy Bills
Have you noticed your utility bill rising every month even though you use your air conditioner the same amount you always used to? This could be a sign that your system is losing efficiency and needs to be replaced.
Cooling and Humidity Inconsistencies
If you’ve noticed that certain parts of your home are cooled while others remain humid, it could be a sign that your air conditioner can no longer keep up. Air conditioners are supposed to remove humidity from the air and when working properly should keep all areas of the home at a consistent temperature. If yours can no longer do this, it’s probably time to replace.
Excessive Noise and Dust
If you’ve noticed a constant presence of dust in your home, even after you clean, it could be a sign that there are leaks in your ductwork, causing decreased efficiency. Excessive noise could mean your duct system isn’t large enough for the square footage of your home or could also mean that there’s an issue with the unit’s indoor coil.
