Signs It Is Time to Replace Your Air conditioning Unit

Replacing an air conditioner can be expensive and inconvenient. It's tempting to keep your old AC unit running a little longer, but eventually, it must be replaced. It’s important to have a replacement done at the right time to avoid expensive and unnecessary repairs that may only temporarily prolong the life of a system that could be hurting your wallet with age and inefficiency.

Here are some signs that indicate your current AC unit is nearing the end of its service life:

  • Skyrocketing Utility Bills: Older AC systems are inefficient and struggle to reach peak efficiency. Over time, it will require more energy and money to cool your home. If you notice a sudden increase in your cooling costs, a significant system breakdown may be imminent.
  • Old Refrigerants: If your air conditioner uses an older or now-obsolete refrigerant, servicing it could be ludicrously expensive, and that means replacement may be a better investment. 
  • The Unit Never Shuts Off: While it's normal for your AC to run more during hot weather, a failing air conditioner may struggle to reach the target temperature and never shut off.
  • Frequent Repairs: Replacing your air conditioner might be more beneficial if you make multiple AC repair calls in a season. When components start failing one after another, it’s better to invest that repair money in a replacement system instead. 
  • Unit Age: An average air conditioner can last over 15 to 20 years with proper maintenance. However, if your AC unit is approaching that age, replacement often becomes more cost-effective than continual repairs. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates utility savings of 20% to 40% after replacing an old unit.

If you notice any of these signs, it's essential to call us right away. Addressing the issue promptly may help you save money. Delaying the decision to have your AC checked will likely result in more severe issues and higher costs.

Our AC Installation Process

Improper sizing and installation of AC units are the common causes of high energy bills and frequent repair calls. Sterling Service ensures your AC system is sized correctly and installed to avoid long-term issues. Here's how we go about determining and installing the suitable AC unit for your home:

  • Load Calculation: Before replacing your AC system, we calculate load to determine the appropriate size for the replacement unit. This calculation considers your home's square footage, insulation, and window orientation. It helps ensure that the new AC unit provides optimal cooling efficiency.
  • Ductwork Inspection: We examine your ductwork for necessary repairs or improvements. Properly functioning ducts are crucial for efficient airflow and cooling performance. If repairs are needed, we address them during the installation process.
  • Comprehensive Proposal: We provide a detailed AC installation quote after the calculations and inspections. We consider your budget and explore rebate, financing, and coupon options to provide the best value.
  • Scheduling and Installation: Once you approve the proposal and sign the necessary paperwork, our HVAC expert will work with you to schedule the installation at your convenience. We aim to ensure a smooth and hassle-free process. We aim to exceed your expectations and add you to our list of satisfied customers.

Alternative Air Conditioning Options

A traditional central air conditioning system cannot resolve every HVAC situation. We may recommend alternative cooling solutions that suit your needs in certain circumstances. Here are some options to consider:

  • Heat Pump: Heat pumps are versatile equipment that used to be primarily suited for temperate climates. However, with technological advancements, they are now a good choice, even for colder areas. Heat pumps can efficiently provide heating and cooling, making them suitable for year-round comfort.
  • Ductless Mini-Splits: A ductless mini-split system can be an excellent option if your home is older and doesn't have existing ductwork or if you need to heat and cool a new addition. These systems offer flexibility that traditional units can't match, providing efficient heating and cooling solutions.

Financing Through WiseTack & Goodleap

The cost of installing a new air conditioning system can be a concern for many homeowners. However, nobody should have to wait longer than necessary to get the cooling their home needs. We offer financing options through WiseTack and Goodleap to make the process more affordable and manageable. These reputable companies make the process easy and offer great perks and benefits like flexible terms, great rates, and customized payment options.
