Signs You Need Air Conditioner Replacement

When you air conditioner approaches or passes its manufacturer’s estimate lifespan, keep a close look out for the following signs that may indicate it has aged passed its usefulness:

  • Uneven cooling: One of the more obvious signs that something is amiss with a central air conditioner is when some rooms feel warmer than others. Although this may stem from problems with the ductwork, for an older AC it often means a significant drop in cooling power so that only certain rooms are receiving conditioned air.
  • Higher humidity: Air conditioners are not designed specifically to combat humidity (although some models have dehumidifiers integrated into them). However, the process of heat exchange does remove some moisture from the air. If you notice your home growing more humid during times when the air conditioner is running, it can point toward an AC that is running down.
  • Utility bill rise: If your electrical bills appear are steadily rising during periods when you have the AC running on a regular basis, the system is probably wearing down and draining excess power. If the air conditioner is over 15 years old, you should call on replacement professionals to see if it is time to put in a new system.
