Being a homeowner, it can be hard to determine when it is time to invest in a new air conditioner. Unless you are an HVAC professional, it can also be hard to determine whether your equipment will need to be repaired or replaced. Fortunately, with some helpful advice from our home cooling heroes here at LRF Maintenance, Heating & Cooling, you will be able to identify some warning signs it might be time for a new air conditioning unit.
Age of Air Conditioner
When HVAC equipment ages, it becomes far more susceptible to breakdowns. Repairs become a more and more common thing. Even when an air conditioner is well maintained, a lot of AC units last a decade on average. With HVAC technology continuously changing and improving, it can become inconvenient to obtain the equipment that your air conditioner needs to run the most efficiently.
Do you feel like your house is struggling to keep cool even after adjusting the temperature? Poor airflow, in addition to warmer air coming out of your cooling equipment, is usually a warning sign your Air Conditioner is in need of service or needs replaced. If cleaning or replacing your air filter doesn’t improve the airflow in your home, it might be time to call a professional. We are always standing by here at LRF.
Strange Noises & Smells
When our home cooling equipment is running correctly, there should not be any smell coming from the equipment and it should also sound like a gentle hum. When unusual noises or strange odors arise, you could have bigger problems in the making. When your equipment starts to experience these sorts of issues, it is best to call a skilled technician to diagnose the problem, to get to the bottom of whatever is occurring with your AC.
