Signs That It May Be Time for an AC Replacement
The need to replace a malfunctioning or old air conditioning system isn’t something that occurs out of the blue. There are many tell-tale signs that it may be time for an AC replacement. The first indicator is the overall age of the air conditioning unit. The average lifespan for a well-maintained AC unit is 15 to 20 years. In areas like Lubbock, where there’s a lot of dust, the longevity can be reduced because dust and dirt have a negative impact on equipment. Other key indicators that it’s time to consider an AC replacement are:
- Your home energy costs seem much higher than the same period last year (Energy.gov offers home energy assessments you can do yourself)
- You notice hot or cool spots throughout your home.
- The system seems to be short-cycling, i.e., it’s cutting off before the system has fully cooled your home.
- The thermostat reads one temperature while the actual temperature inside is something different.
- The outdoor condenser unit has frozen.
- You’re spending a lot more money on regular repairs.
