Signs You Need a New AC

It’s not hard to find out that your AC is broken. You go to turn it on and something happens. Whether it doesn’t turn or it’s making a strong noise, there are many telltale signs that it’s time to replace your air conditioner:

It’s too old
Is your AC more than 10 years old? If installed correctly, most air conditioners can last up to 10 years before they start to lose their functionality. If it’s older than that, chances are you need a replacement.

Energy bills are skyrocketing
If your energy bills are on the rise, this could mean that your HVAC system is not as efficient as it used to be.

Your home is humid
Having humidity problems in the home? Having leaky ductwork or an inefficient unit can cause the air to be too humid when a hot summer hits.

It’s making strange sounds
They might scare you, but don’t panic. As long as you call an HVAC tech right away, you shouldn’t be in danger. A noisy cooling system means you probably have an undersized cut system. Either that or you have a complication with the indoor coil of your cooling system.

Your home is dusty
If your home has excessive dust, leaky ducts could be to blame, as they tend to pull particles and air from spaces like attics and basements. To prevent these particles from getting blown around your house, you’ll want to either seal your ductwork or replace your cooling equipment.

Before another hot summer in San Antonio, scheduled maintenance on your cooling system to ensure it’s working properly. To learn more our AC repairs, installations, and maintenance, give us a call at (210) 361-7002 or visit our website.
