How Do I Know If I Need A New Air Conditioner?
When you start to notice your AC unit is running a lot more than it used to, or when the air conditioner starts to leak water onto the floor.
There are also some other noticeable signs that indicate that your current system needs repair and should be replaced by an HVAC service company before things get worse. For example, have you noticed a strange smell when your air conditioning unit is running?
If you have, this could be a sign that the coils are dirty and need to be cleaned and sanitized. It may also indicate that there’s an obstruction in the airflow which needs to be resolved.
These are the most common signs that your AC is sick and not working as it should be.
10 is the magic number...
Is your SEER rating 10 or less? Is your AC more than 10 years old? If you answered “YES” to either of these questions, then you definitely need a new air conditioner.
If you don’t have a professional come out to take care of this, it could lead to more costly issues. It might also mean that your AC unit’s performance is degrading and it will eventually make the air conditioner completely stop working altogether.
The last thing you want is for your heat and air system to break in the middle of a 101-degree day in Edmond, right?
Have you looked at your electric bill lately and compared it to last year and the year before? Are you noticing that every year your electricity bill is rising and going up? This could be a tell-tale sign that your HVAC system is dying.
