Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs Repair
Like any mechanical system, there may come a time when repairs are necessary. Unfortunately, repairs usually appear at the least opportune moment. In an effort to reduce the number of surprise AC repairs, it’s important to know the signs of a system in need of service. This includes:
- AC only emits hot air
- Weak airflow
- Odd or loud noises coming from the unit
- Unusual smells or musty odors
- Excess moisture buildup
- Water or freon leaks
While there are plenty of other symptoms of an air conditioner in need of service, these are the ones most homeowners should be able to detect on their own. By schedule repairs with an expert AC contractor, you can avoid those major issues and limit the need for a complete replacement.
The Benefits of Air Conditioner Replacement
After frequent repairs and air that is not sufficiently cooled, many homeowners opt to have their air conditioner replaced. Generally speaking, if you have had your unit for ten years and the cost of repairs is at least half the cost of a new system, it is more cost-efficient to replace your unit.
Besides cost-efficiency, there are many other benefits of replacing your unit, including:
- Cost Efficiency - Not only will replacing your AC reduce the number of repairs, but also new air conditioner models are more eco-friendly and use less power to run.
- Comfort Level - Many homeowners do not realize how poorly their current system is working until they replace their system. New systems will eliminate warm spots and keep the home at an even coolness.
- Health Benefits - Though you may not realize it, a poorly operating AC can affect your health; most noticeably by worsening allergies and exacerbating asthma. A new system will eliminate these issues.
- Smart Features - A new concept with a lot of appliances is smart features. Smart features allow you to remotely control your AC from anywhere.
If an air conditioning replacement is the route you plan on taking for your home, it’s always best to work with an expert. At Sunset Heating & Cooling, our AC technicians can walk you through every step of the process, ensuring a seamless and stress-free experience.
