Why Should I Replace My Air Conditioner?
There are several signs it may be time to replace your air conditioner. If your system isn’t pumping out any cold air or it has been struggling to keep up with the demand for some time, your system may be failing. Gold Star is often able to perform repairs to extend the life of your air conditioner but if it is beyond repair, we can help you find the right AC replacement. There are some other signs to look out for so you can be prepared before your air conditioner bites the dust when you need it most.
Most modern air conditioning systems will last 10-15 years when properly maintained. Once they are about a decade old, they may have decreased efficiency due to the wear and tear of mechanical parts. If you have your AC unit inspected at least once a year you will most likely catch issues before they cause major problems down the road that would lead to a premature replacement.
High Energy Bills
Your energy bill is usually a great way to tell if there is an issue with your air conditioner. If it’s high, it means your system is running more than it should because it simply can’t keep up. There are money-saving tips for thermostat operation that may help, but if you have a sharp rise in your bills during what seems like normal usage, your system may be failing.
Frequent AC Repairs
If you have needed several repairs on your system already, there’s a good chance your air conditioner may be at the end of its life. Regular repairs may be a sign of faulty installation or misuse of the system. Constantly trying to keep your AC working will cost you more time, money, and stress than it may be worth.
Modern air conditioners have a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating of 13-25. If your system has a rating below 13, it is not nearly as efficient as it could be. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy-efficient your AC will be, which saves you money in the long run. If you’re unsure of your air conditioner’s rating, contact us for an inspection.
Using Freon (R-22)
The refrigerant R-22, most commonly known as Freon, has been phased out by the government because of its ozone-depleting effects. New R-22 has not been produced since 2020 so supply will continue to be limited as time goes on. As supply diminishes, the cost will rise to meet demand. Newer air conditioners use R410A refrigerant.
Types of Air Conditioners We Replace
There are a few common types of air conditioners used in the Delaware Valley. Our HVAC technicians are experienced in working with virtually every residential and commercial system. We provide AC replacement services for the most popular systems so that you can enjoy energy-efficient cooling and lasting indoor comfort. Regardless of your energy source, we will find a solution for you.
Central Air Systems
These popular systems remove heat from the indoor air and distribute it throughout your ductwork. Commonly installed in larger homes and office buildings, central air conditioning systems are comprised of two units. The outside compressor feeds the indoor unit with the condenser coils and air handler.
Ductless Mini Splits
Commonly installed to provide supplemental cooling and heat, ductless systems are incredibly space-saving and energy-efficient. You can place multiple wall-mounted indoor units throughout your home or office to provide even multi-zone cooling. They are perfect for retrofitting older buildings.
Like a ductless system, a heat pump provides heating and cooling capabilities. More like central air though, it requires ductwork to distribute the hot or cold air. They have a similar footprint to central air systems so they are commonly installed as a more energy-efficient AC replacement.
Like your car, regular AC maintenance will extend the life of your mechanical parts. By ensuring that everything is functioning properly, filters are being replaced, and components are still in good shape, you will extend the life span of your air conditioner. We offer an annual maintenance plan to ensure your system works when you need it most. We also offer a Factory Fresh AC Tune-up that comes with our 1 year no breakdown guarantee.
