Having a functioning AC is essential for living comfortably through the warm months. If you’re unsure of the problems your AC is facing, trust the professionals at Comfort Specialists to find out.
Our experts will conduct a thorough evaluation of your unit to identify the root of the problem and come up with a cost-effective solution. When all efforts are exhausted, the only other solution may be to replace your unit. There are certainly signs that can indicate your AC needs to be replaced, which include:
If your AC unit has a long history of repairs, that may be an indication that the issues are no longer supported by temporary fixes. These constant repairs can add up and be more expensive in the long run than if you were to purchase a new unit.
If you do your part to ensure your AC unit receives routine maintenance, it should last up to 15 years. However, if your AC has aged over a decade and you’re finding it needs frequent repairs, relieve yourself of the heavy expenses and stress by switching to a newer model.
One common sign that indicates your AC may need to be replaced is if you notice a decrease in efficiency and performance. A lack of airflow can prevent cool air from circulating throughout your home, which, in turn, can result in a high utility bill.
R410A refrigerant has become the standard for residential air conditioning due to the fact that it is harmless to the ozone layer when compared to freon, which is in most units. In order to conserve energy, the federal government will have completely phased out freon in cooling systems by the year 2020. Freon is also relatively expensive compared to R410A refrigerant, so upgrading your unit will save you money in that regard as well.
If any of the above signs are prevalent in your home, you may need a replacement unit. Schedule an appointment with Comfort Specialists to upgrade your AC unit and restore the quality of comfort in your home! Feel free to call us at 801-810-9205.
