Air conditioners are known to last between ten to fifteen years. In some cases, homeowners manage to get an even longer lifespan out of their units. That being said, you may wonder how to know for sure if it’s time to replace your unit. As you may have guessed, the best time to replace your HVAC unit is before you absolutely need to. A timely replacement can prevent a lot of stress… and sweat. Look out for these three warning signs that you might be due for a replacement soon.
Energy Costs Keep Climbing
If your energy bill has steadily increased over the months, that’s a sign that your unit is losing its efficiency. If the system is relatively new, a quick tune-up from one of Houston Admiral’s technicians might do the trick. But sometimes, a unit can no longer produce the results that you need. If that’s the case, it’ll probably save you more money over the long-term to replace your unit.
Extensive Repair Needs
As mentioned above, sometimes it’s more economical to replace your unit. If your HVAC unit needs expensive repairs, you can sometimes save more money by purchasing a new system. Our technicians will let you know what your options are in terms of cost.
Unit Not Cooling House
One of the most obvious warning signs that you could benefit from a new air conditioner is that your unit isn’t cooling your home. Sometimes, the air conditioner does work, but it takes a very long time to get your home to your desired temperature. Even if your AC cools your home eventually, remember that you pay for every second the unit runs. But in either case, call Houston Admiral. We can tell you if there’s a simple fix or if it’s time for a new unit.
