You’re constantly having to call in a service technician to repair your air conditioning system,
If you’re spending more money on repairs than it would cost to buy a new unit, then it’s time for an upgrade.
Your air conditioner is no longer performing as effectively as it used to and does not keep your home as cool. This is a sign that, due to age and wear and tear, the system may not be up to par anymore and needs to be replaced.
You notice increased energy bills without any other changes in usage or lifestyle. As an air conditioning unit ages, it loses efficiency and is forced to work harder than usual to cool your home, causing your energy bills to rise.
Your home isn’t getting cool enough, even when the thermostat is set at a low temperature. This could be due to a lack of maintenance or an obstruction in your ductwork that’s preventing cool air from circulating throughout your home.
There’s visible corrosion on the air conditioner coils and other components. Corrosion usually occurs due to age and refrigerant leaks, so it’s important to have an expert inspect your system as soon as possible.
You notice hot and cold spots in your home, or the air feels stale when you turn on the AC. This could indicate that your air conditioner isn’t distributing air evenly throughout your house or that there’s a problem with the ductwork.
