When Should I Replace My AC


Phoenix, AZ Air Conditioning FAQ: When Should I Replace My AC?

A good air conditioning system should last a long while when it’s been professionally installed, likely even longer if it’s maintained properly. In Phoenix, AZ, air conditioning units are always pushed to the limit when summer temperatures rise. Later in the summer humidity seems to take over and your AC works extra hard. Sooner or later, you’re going to need to replace your old AC for a newer model. What should you consider when making the decision?

The biggest factor when considering air conditioning replacement is how well your current system functions. If you’ve had it for a long time, you may want to consider installing a new system, although that may not be necessary if you’ve maintained it well and it continues to function efficiently. Instead, look for signs that your current system isn’t doing its job, which may include but is not limited to the following:

  • Your air conditioning can’t seem to get your home cool enough, or you’re constantly adjusting it to find a comfortable temperature.
  • Your house is too humid or feels as humid as it does outdoors, even when your air conditioning is running.
  • Your air conditioning is noisier than usual, which may indicate a problem with the cooling coil or another major piece of equipment.
  • You need to have your air conditioning serviced with increasing frequency, or your air conditioning requires multiple expensive repairs.
  • Your electric bills are going up, especially in the summer time, even though you’re not using any appliances more than normal.
  • You have older or outdated equipment that doesn’t keep up with your current needs.
