We’ve spoken before about how important it is to get annual AC maintenance. However, sometimes maintenance won’t be enough to get it through the summer. Nothing lasts forever, and losing an air conditioner can be a major loss, especially in the middle of summer. Of course, maybe you’re just being cautious and planning ahead to know what a dying AC looks like. Whatever the case, Rebmann can tell you the signs that it’s time for an AC replacement in New York.
Here are 6 signs you should get an AC replacement in New York:
The AC reached retirement age.
What’s the age of your current AC? According to the National Association of Home Builders, well-maintained AC units can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years. If your AC has reached this point and isn’t working like it used to, it might be time to retire it. It may seem like a major cost, but don’t worry! You can use this opportunity to purchase a modern unit that’s more energy efficient.
The AC has a refrigerant leak.
A refrigerant leak is a serious problem with your AC. The leaking coolant can pose a health risk to your family and the water leakage can damage your home. While it’s possible to fix serious leaks by getting a new coil, it might be a sign you should get a new AC.
A repair would cost too much.
Sometimes replacement parts and repairs for your AC don’t justify their high costs. It gets more unappealing when you’re talking about a unit with an expired warranty. If this is the case, you should pick up a new unit and get a new warranty.
The AC is making strange noises.
Is your AC operating louder than it normally does? AC units generally run quietly, so any grinding, banging, or rattling noises are a major concern. These noises can represent something like a slipped belt or broken motor bearings. If these issues aren’t fixed quickly, you’ll have a costly repair or replacement on your hands.
The AC air isn’t cold.
AC units produce cool air for you. If you turn on the AC and cool air doesn’t come out within a few minutes, there’s a problem. A wide variety of issues can cause this problem, like low Freon levels or a broken compressor. Whatever the case may be, it’s an obvious sign that your AC has an issue.
The AC needs frequent repairs.
You may want to keep an AC operational for a good while through repeated repairs. However, doing this may eventually lead you to spend more than you would from getting a replacement. This is more likely if your warranty has expired and isn’t helping with repair costs.
