Should I Replace My Air Conditioner?

If you feel like your AC unit is getting old, or the time might be approaching to replace it, being able to plan ahead is crucial. In order to plan ahead, our industry has a general standard guideline when it comes to central air conditioning systems. If your AC unit is between 10 and 15 years old, it’s definitely a good time to start thinking about having it replaced with a newer model higher in efficiency. However, with that in mind, you should remember that age is just a number, and a number that can vary greatly.

The precise number of years a central AC unit will operate fruitfully without needing repairs frequently and costing too much in energy inefficiencies depends on a few factors, like how well it was installed, to begin with, how well repairs have been made over the years and how often those repairs have been necessary.

Most important of all, however, is how often the system has had preventative maintenance performed by a professional. A system that’s been maintained regularly throughout the years will almost always last a lot longer than one that has not been, and by far.

Keeping that in mind, if your AC is giving you any of the problems we outline below, give us a call to have a certified AC repair person come check it out. These problems, or symptoms, point to the need for a new AC:

  • Is the coil freezing up?
  • Are your cooling bills higher?
  • Do you have any moisture leakage?
  • Is your AC unit making unusual sounds?
  • Is there any sort of oily residue on the parts?
  • Is there any inconsistency in home cooling levels?
  • Is your thermostat reading lower than the actual temperature?

Choosing the Right Air Conditioner

Heat pumps are rising in popularity as an essential part of residential HVAC systems across Central Ohio, but is it right for your home?

Four main types of A/Cs to consider for your home:

Ductless mini-split systems

If you’re needing a home cooling system and don’t have any ductwork running through the home, or if you don’t want to use ductwork, ductless systems are popular systems that you should consider.

Heat pumps

Heat pumps are another type of split system. Instead of the usual binary AC and furnace system, heat pumps run in the winter and in the summer, providing comfort year-round. This outdoor unit looks a great deal like a central AC unit, in fact, people often mistake the two.

Packaged air conditioners

Packaged air conditioners are the combination of a heat pump and an electric air conditioner. Usually, packaged air conditioners sit on top of the roof of a commercial building or outside the home. They are popular for commercial application use because they have a small footprint and installation is flexible.

Split systems

Split systems are the most common style of central AC systems in homes across the country. The term “split” is used because it has components both outside and inside the residence.

choose the correct a/c size:

Determine what unit to buy based on the room size. In general, an air conditioner needs roughly 20-25 BTU for each square foot of living space. If a unit is too strong, you’ll waste unnecessary power, too weak and you’ll continually run the machine on full power and never feel cool enough. In general, err on the side of slightly larger to ensure comfort. You’ll want to size up if your AC is in a room with:

  • High ceilings, which create more space that needs to be cooled
  • High traffic — more people means more heat generated
  • Natural sunlight
  • Near the kitchen with lots of heat-generating appliances

A/C Features to look for:

  • “Check filter” light: A visual reminder to clean or replace the air filter.
  • Sleep mode: Slightly increases the room’s temperature setting at night to avoid nighttime chills.
  • Manufacturer’s warranty: Generally ranges from one to two years for parts and labor.
  • Energy-saver switch: Normally, an air conditioner’s fan runs constantly, even when the compressor is turned off. But with an energy-saving switch, the fans turn off when the thermostat turns off the compressor, saving you money.
