Signs You Need a New AC Installation
Regular air conditioning maintenance can keep your system running smoothly with fewer problems. It can help it last longer as well. But eventually, all ACs need to be replaced. These are some signs you may need a new air conditioner:
If you notice leakage greater than the normal condensation an AC produces, there may be a clogged condensate drain line. Regular maintenance can clear the line and eliminate dirt, dust, or mold. But when an air conditioner leaking causes pools of water to form, major components may need to be replaced; it’s often less costly to install a new system.
Weak airflow can lead to hotter temperatures and reduced comfort. A clogged filter, worn blower fan or motor, or frozen evaporator coil may be the cause. An AC technician can usually fix these issues, but if you still have poor airflow, it’s time to consider a new AC installation.
AC repairs aren’t cheap, especially when a major component like the compressor, evaporator coil, or condenser fails. If you need an AC repair every season or every few months (or just one very expensive repair), discuss with your HVAC contractor whether a new AC installation would be more cost-effective.
Newer air conditioners can last up to 20 years, but most older units are good for 10 to 12 years if they’re well-maintained. How often you run the AC, the amount of heat in your area, and whether the unit installed is sized properly can impact its lifespan. Nonetheless, the cost of ownership of an older unit is more expensive when you factor in repairs, lower efficiency, and general wear and tear.
If the unit won’t turn on and there isn’t an issue with the thermostat, a tripped circuit breaker, or faulty wiring, the AC may be dead. A technician will inspect the unit to determine if the underlying cause can be fixed or if you need a replacement unit.
