When It’s Time to Replace Your AC
In the middle of summer, no one wants to go without heat for longer than they have to. Because of this, it may be wise to replace your air conditioner before it completely goes out. But wait—you don’t want to waste money before it quits, right? Truth is, you’re probably already wasting money due to the old unit’s inefficiency.
Here are a few other signs that you should look for to replace your AC:
- Age – If your unit is older than 15 years, it is definitely time for a new one
- Cost of repair – If your old unit isn’t quite 15 (but is getting close) but the repairs needed are expensive, consider replacing the AC.
- Uses R-22 refrigerant – R-22 is the old type of refrigerant but the government is aging it out. This means it is becoming extremely expensive. Replacing the AC is a more practical option.
- High or rising bills – Think back over the past two years. Your energy consumption likely hasn’t changed much, but your bills increasing is a strong indicator of an old HVAC unit
- Uncomfortable home –Whether one part of your home is not getting cold or the entire home is not cool at all, call us!
Common Air Conditioning Problems
Quite often, other Topeka air conditioning service technicians will fix or attempt to fix the problem with your AC. When it comes time to pay the bill, they quickly run through what was wrong, usually not really explaining anything in a way you can understand. At Pat Plumbing, Heating and Air, we want you to understand what we are saying and what you’re paying for–so we will take time to talk you through anything that needs to be done.
Here are a few common air conditioner issues that require a call to professionals:
- Noises – When your air conditioner starts making noises that you’ve never heard, there could be a part loose or broken.
- Smells – A burning smell could indicate that a component has broken or lubrication is needed. If you smell fuel, it’s possible that there is a leak.
- Endless cycles – The air conditioner shouldn’t constantly be running. This burns power and costs you money. It also puts wear and tear on your unit
- Dirty coils – When the coils become dirty, they do not cool efficiently. This can lead to other problems like endless cycles and high energy bills.
The biggest and best step you can take toward maintaining your air conditioner is to keep the filters clean. This means changing them every 60-90 days, depending on your household’s needs.
