4 Signs You May Need a New Ac Unit

Do you find yourself spending your free time trying to decide if you should invest in a new air conditioner? It is a tough decision to make because a new AC is expensive and choosing the wrong unit could cost you more in the future. 

Our team at Super Heat & Air knows what an important decision it is, and we have come up with four signs that may point you toward a new AC system this summer. 

Your Air Conditioner is Old or Inefficient

The age of an air conditioning unit can play an important role in your decision to get a new one. Keeping in mind that the average lifespan of most air conditioners is 10-15 years, if your AC is older than that, it might be time to upgrade to a newer, more energy-efficient unit. 

The combination of an aging system and more frequent repairs should be a good indication that it is time to replace your system. 

Your Energy Bills Continue to Rise

If your monthly energy costs continue to increase, you may be noticing the inefficiencies of your AC system hitting you in your bank account. 

The truth is new air conditioners are much more energy-efficient than older ones. As technology continues to improve, each new year brings about new innovations and more efficient cooling power with the use of less energy. 

In fact, the US Department of Energy (DOE) states that high-efficiency AC units can reduce energy usage by 20-50 percent a year. 

While installing a new air conditioning system can be a large upfront investment, the amount saved on monthly energy bills will add up over time. 

It is Hot and Humid Inside

Your air conditioning system’s job is to not only cool your home but remove humidity from the air too. If you notice that your AC is not removing enough moisture on extremely hot and humid summer days, your system might be having a hard time keeping up. 

High humidity levels in the home can cause more than just discomfort—it can cause mold and mildew in your Tampa Bay home. 

Further, if your AC is blowing warm air or has stopped cooling completely, you may be on your way to a complete system breakdown. 

Although repairs might take care of the problems for now, if you have a combination of age and several other issues, it may be time to start saving for a new air conditioner! 

You Know the Repair Man by Name 

While we love our customers and would love to be on a first-name basis with everyone, if we are getting called out to your home more than a couple of times a year outside of preventative maintenance visits, there is a problem. 

Although understandably, you would rather repair and replace components that are causing your AC unit to malfunction, than purchase a new one, the frequency of repairs could be a telltale sign that you need to make that investment in a new system.
