Warning Signs You Need an AC Replacement

July 9, 2019

When you notice something wrong with your AC unit, it can be difficult to tell at first if it can be repaired or will need to be replaced with a new system. A knowledgeable and helpful AC technician from Hunter's Air & Heat, Inc. can inspect your AC unit to tell you if it should be replaced or repaired. Some of the reasons you may need to consider an AC replacement include the following:

Your AC Unit is Old

It is rare for an AC until to last more than 15 years. The parts only get more expensive to fix or replace as the unit gets older, especially after it has been around for 10 years or longer. At a certain point, it makes sense to replace it with a new unit.

Summer Cooling Bills Are High

If you notice that your summer energy bills are suddenly getting way higher, this could mean that your unit is shutting down. The problem will only get worse until you address it.

Your Home Won’t Cool Down

Your home may not be getting cool enough because the airflow is too weak or warm air is not getting cycled out of your house. Your AC unit may have a failed compressor, which is a crucial part to replace. If your condenser is blocked or broken, warm air will not be removed from your house.

Vents and the AC Unit Smell Odd

There shouldn’t be any odd smells coming out of your AC unit when it is running. The vents should not smell either. If you notice a burning smell, the wire coatings might be burned. A musky odor could indicate a leak that has caused mildew or mold.

Your Unit Makes Noises

If you have a fairly modern AC unit, it should be relatively quiet when it is working. Noises coming from your AC unit might mean that a part has been damaged.
