Is your AC unit due for a replacement? It’s quite possible that your home requires an air conditioner replacement, though it could also just require a small repair. Only a heating and AC technician can make that determination upon an in-person inspection. Here are some of the signs that your AC may be close to failing and may need to be replaced altogether.
Higher Energy Bills
Have you noticed your energy bill has been gradually increasing despite no major changes in your HVAC use? This is not unusual as your HVAC ages and becomes more outdated. It’s also possible that your HVAC is either too large or small relative to the size of your home. An overly large HVAC unit may excessively cycle on and off, while a smaller unit runs almost non-stop without fully cooling the interior. An incorrectly sized HVAC is especially common in commercial buildings and offices.
Poor Air Quality
Your home may also suffer from poor air quality. You may notice excessive humidity, especially in the summer. Increased humidity and airborne allergens are signs that your AC may not be operating at its peak.
Is the AC producing a lack of airflow? There may be a blockage that’s impeding air from freely cycling through the HVAC unit. A technician will need to inspect the ducts and vents for physical obstructions. If the blockage can be removed, then an AC replacement shouldn’t be necessary.
