Signs That You Need A New Air Conditioner

Most air conditioners last between 15-20 years. But that industry-standard life-expectancy can increase or decrease depending on many factors such as the care of the unit and the climate. The best way to know when your air conditioner is reaching the end of its life is to be on the lookout for some common indications. These signs include:

  • Poor Climate Control- As an AC unit ages, the function becomes less efficient, and you begin to notice that your home is not as cool and comfortable as it once was. You might also find that the temperature in your home is no longer remaining constant. Some rooms are cool, while others are warmer.
  • Increased Utility Cost- As the efficiency of your air conditioner decreases, sadly, the operating cost will increase. This is because the unit is running more frequently and working harder to try and maintain the temperature that you have set on the thermostat. As your bills get higher, and so does the temperature in your home, it is clearly time to start thinking about a new air conditioner installation.
  • Too Many Repairs- If you feel like you have your AC fixed every month or even more often, then it is about time to purchase a replacement. Every unit will require service and repairs from time to time. But when your repair bills come as often as your utility bills, then your air conditioner has reached the end of its life.

Preventative Maintenance

All mechanical devices need regular maintenance and service to continue operating, and your AC is no different. You would never expect your car to run forever without an occasional oil change, and tune-up and your air conditioner needs that same care and preventative maintenance. With professional maintenance, your AC unit can last up to two decades, which makes it a very affordable feature in your Southern Maryland home. However, if you only change the filter once in a while, expect to be replacing your AC about every ten years, if you are lucky.

To nearly double the life expectancy of your air conditioner, investing in professional preventative maintenance is a smart move. At A Better Plumber & Air Conditioning & Air Conditioning, we inspect all of the components of your unit and provide the service and care that will maximize your return on investment. Our inspection and service include:

  • Filter inspection and care
  • Checking the refrigerant
  • Inspecting the drain pan and drain lines
  • Cleaning and inspecting the evaporator coils
  • Inspecting the electrical connections and checking the voltage
  • Inspecting the air handlers and airflow settings
  • Checking the safety switches

This maintenance will ensure not only the most efficient function of your air conditioner but also the longest life expectancy possible. And if we discover any items that need additional service, we will provide you with a complete cost quote to complete the work before any permanent damage occurs.

Your air conditioner provides a vital service to your home during the summer months. Without AC, your home will become hot, humid, and miserable. So as soon as you notice an odd noise or find that your home is not remaining cool and comfortable, call the pros at A Better Plumber & Air Conditioning & Air Conditioning. Our licensed technician will locate the issue and correct it before you are forced to suffer through days of heat and humidity. And each repair is backed by our complete warranty.
