Typically, you should replace your air conditioner every 10-15 years or when you notice any of the following 4 signs:
- You need to call for repairs more often. If you need more than two major repairs in any season, there is no question you need an air conditioner replacement. Even if you’ve had repairs any time in the last two years, you should consider an upgrade or new air conditioner installation.
- Your cooling bills are going up. Despite costs steadily rising year over year, your cooling bills shouldn’t creep up that much. If you notice a large increase, you may need to get a new air conditioner.
- Your home still feels hot. If it never seems like your home is cool enough, you may need get a new cooling system installed.
- You notice a reduction in air quality. If you or your family have noticed a decline in air quality in your home, it could very well be your air conditioner or HVAC system in general.
