When Should You Replace Your AC Unit?
Keep your home cool during the summer, reduce energy bills, and avoid making expensive, recurring repairs on a failing unit by knowing when it's time for a replacement.
Here are signs you should replace your AC unit:
- Beyond the expected lifespan of 10 to 15 years
- Requiring repairs more than half the cost of a new unit
- Declining in efficiency & general performance
- Struggling to keep your home cool & comfortable
- Contributing to excessive dust & poor indoor air quality
- Uses R-22 Freon, which was phased out in Jan. 2020
- The source of foul smells or loud noises
- Failing to remove humidity from your home
- You're interested in a higher SEER rating
What is a SEER Rating?
A SEER rating indicates air conditioner efficiency. It stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The main thing to remember about SEER is the higher the number, the higher your air conditioning’s energy efficiency.
For newer AC units, the range of available options is usually around 13 SEER to 21 SEER. Thirteen is the lowest acceptable efficiency rating as established by the Department of Energy. However, it’s not uncommon for older units to be rated around an 8 or 9 SEER, so you’ll see great results just by upgrading to the modern minimum efficiency.
Our technicians can answer any questions you may have about AC SEER ratings. We can help you determine a balance between upfront cost and ongoing energy and money savings.
Mini-Split vs Central Air
The main difference between ductless mini-splits and central air conditioner units is that the former provides targeted, customizable cooling. Each zone that is created by a mini-split unit installation can be individually controlled. This setup is also a higher upfront cost if you’re solely relying on these units for your cooling.
Central air systems push air through the home based on one thermostat. This means that rooms that tend to be hotter or colder than the rest of the house won’t be as easily addressed.
A great balance between customized cooling and money savings is to have just one or two mini-splits in problem areas of your home while relying on your central air unit to provide most of the cooling. However, you may decide only one or the other is the best choice for your comfort and/or budget.
