If you have problems with your AC unit, it’s important to replace it before it breaks down. With summer coming up, Natchitoches homeowners should make sure their unit is performing effectively and efficiently. Your typical HVAC system can have a lifespan between 10-15 years, but there are some cases where you need to replace it sooner.
Axsom Air wants to provide our customers with signs that their air conditioners may need to be replaced. Here are 3 signs that you need an AC replacement.
Constant Repairs And Utility Costs
If you find yourself calling the air conditioning company more times than not, it might be time to fully replace your unit. While it’s best to get your AC unit maintained every season, too many repairs show that your system may be working overtime. You can also see if your system is overworking itself if your utility bills are higher than you anticipated.
Scheduling countless repairs on your system could add up over time. Your repair costs could end up equaling the cost of an HVAC unit if they continue. Overworking your system will also require more energy consumption, thereby driving up your energy bill. The best way to save money is by investing in a new and fully functioning unit.
You may notice some rooms in your home are cooler than other rooms or certain spots aren’t receiving enough air. If your home isn’t receiving the right amount of air or it’s not cycling to each room, it could be time for a new unit.
Your HVAC system has an important role in your home. Its job is to absorb the warm air and push it out while also pumping in cool air into your home. If it’s obstructed or there are problems with your parts, it could create humidity issues. Replacing your unit removes any obstructions so you can enjoy cool air.
Unusual Sounds Or Smells
Your HVAC unit should function quietly and without any strange smells. Any rattling or banging sounds are unnatural and could be a result of damaged parts. It could be from a short cycling blower in your system or a blockage from dust and debris. Some of these issues can be easily resolved, but others require a full AC installation depending on how old your system is.
Blockage and debris could also lead to unpleasant odors that flow throughout the house. Some smells you could experience include:
- Musty smells from humidity
- Moldy smells from mold and mildew growth
- Burning smells from damaged electrical equipment
All of these smells could be hazardous and lead to more serious damage to your system. It’s important to get these repaired as soon as the signs occur, but you may need a full cooling system replacement if the issues impact more significant parts.
