Do I Need a New AC?

As a homeowner, we understand that you dread the inevitable event of replacing your AC. Air conditioners are a large investment, but is it really worth putting off an upgrade and continuing to pour all of your money into frequent costly repairs? Definitely not.

At Premier Indoor Comfort Systems, your comfort is our utmost priority. With summer just around the corner, our heating and air conditioning professionals are here to make sure your home is equipped with a top-performing air conditioning system, so you and your family can stay cool all season long. In this month’s blog, we have outlined the different signs to look for, which indicate that your AC is on its way out the door. Continue reading to learn more.

How Often Do Air Conditioners Need to Be Replaced?

How long your AC lasts really comes down to maintenance. A properly maintained system can last up to as many as 15 years, but an unmaintained system will usually only last up to around 10 years (if you’re lucky).

It is incredibly important to take care of your system in order to keep it around for as long as possible. Routine maintenance increases the efficiency of your system, reduces the chances of breakdowns, improves your indoor air quality, enhances your indoor comfort, lowers your energy bills, and more. It should be completed every spring to ensure your system is prepared for summer.

Signs That Your System Is Failing

With temperatures already on the rise, you want to make sure that your AC is ready to beat the summer heat. Try to get your AC on as soon as possible so you can test its performance.

If you notice any of the following signs, it might be time for a replacement:

  • Your AC is over 10 years old
  • There is hot air coming from your vents
  • Your AC breaks down frequently
  • Your AC will not turn on
  • Your AC cycles on and off constantly
  • Your AC requires a major, expensive repair or replacement
  • Your energy bills are through the roof
  • The outside unit is leaking
  • Your home never seems to be cool enough
  • The airflow is really low
  • Your AC is making unusual sounds
  • Your AC is distributing odd-smelling air

This list is not exhaustive. If you are experiencing any of the above or other issues with your AC, we recommend scheduling service with an AC professional right away.
