How will I know it’s time to replace my AC with a new unit?
There are three simple signs or symptoms to keep an eye out for.
- First, your AC unit really shouldn’t surpace its 15-year service lifespan. Around the time it’s getting too old, you can begin planning for a replacement.
- Second, have you noticed a rather steep decline in its efficiency? Is it taking too long to cool your home? Seeing higher energy bills?
- How often does it require maintenance and repairs? Even at once every couple of years, it makes sense to upgrade.
Why is their hot air coming out of my AC?
While there are a variety of causes we could dive into, the vast majority of ACs we see blowing hot air are doing so because the air filters are too clogged, the refrigerant is running too low, or your evaporator coils have become too dirty.
