Warning signs it might be time for a new AC

You don’t have to be a poker professional to know when to cut your losses.

Owning a home should be enough!

With that said, we realize it can be difficult to make the decision whether or not to call for another repair on your central air system or simply cut your losses and replace your equipment altogether. 

Below, our NATE-certified A/C experts from Westerville Air Conditioning & Heating list the following warning signs that it might be time for a new AC.

Age of AC Unit

Is your unit older than 10 years old?

As a result of wear and tear over many summers of usage, even the best home cooling systems begin to encounter problems as they get older. Air conditioners on average have a life expectancy of about a decade. However, that number varies from system to system based on usage and maintenance. If your home’s A/C unit is approaching that age or passed it, it might be time to consider investing in newer equipment. We have amazing deals all summer long if this is something that interests you.

Warmer Air or Decrease in Airflow

Changes in airflow, whether it be weaker flow or warmer air, should also be considered a big red flag. Sometimes, cleaning or replacing your unit’s air filters helps with this issue. However, sometimes it could also be an issue with a compressor or something more serious you’ll need an expert to diagnose. 

More Frequent Repairs

If you feel like you’re having to call your trusted HVAC technician a little too often for repairs, it might be time to consider investing in a newer system. Your home budget could potentially benefit from investing in a newer system than the constant cost and labor being put on your current, older system. Plus newer systems will enable home cooling costs to drop dramatically.
