Signs You Need a New AC

You’re better off if you can recognize when it’s time to replace your air conditioner before it fails completely. Taking action early can help you stay ahead of the problem so you can invest your money in a new system that will keep you cool for the next decade or longer.

Here are key signs that it might be time for an AC replacement instead of an AC repair:

  • Advantage unit age: If your air conditioner is more than 10 years old, it’s near the end of its serviceable lifespan.
  • Rising energy bills: Failing air conditioners require more energy to meet your cooling needs. They may still fall short, all while costing you more money.
  • Frequent repairs: If you call for repairs more often than usual, replacing your AC is likely more cost-effective.
  • Costly repairs: You should invest money into a new unit if you have a bad compressor. A good rule of thumb is to opt for replacement if the repair costs more than 50% of the unit’s value.
  • Inadequate cooling: If some rooms are too hot or cold, your air conditioner may be undersized. You need a properly sized unit to adequately and affordably cool your home.

Do you recognize any of these signs? Call us at 252-618-6217 to schedule your AC replacement today.

  • Home size: We’ll ensure the unit is correctly sized for your home to avoid inefficiencies.
  • SEER rating: A higher Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) means better energy efficiency.
