Does Your Air Conditioner Need Replacing?

Air Conditioning Repair

Before the summer’s hot weather settles upon us in East Multnomah County and Gresham, it’s a good time to wonder whether your air conditioner needs replacing.

It’s difficult for some home owners to know exactly when their air conditioning unit needs replacing. Obviously, if the system breaks down and you need to call CZ Heating, that might be a number one sign that your air conditioner has met it’s end.

Here are a few other signs that your air conditioner might need replacing before this summer hits.

Frequent Repairs

If you are in a cycle of constantly repairing your AC unit, it might just be time to move on to a new unit.

This eventuality could be simply the result of the until being too worn to fix permanently, and replacing each part piece by piece will turn out to be more costly than replacing the entire air conditioner unit.

Costly Energy Bills

It’s normal for your energy bill to go up in the summer, as we tend to rely more on our air conditioner to keep things comfortable inside our homes.

Regular maintenance will help keep your AC unit running as efficient as possible, but at some point, regular maintenance will have less of a positive impact, particularly if your air conditioner is more than ten years old.

Old Unit

Just like most mechanical appliances, decades old appliances and their important mechanical components get upgraded, and thus finding replacement parts becomes more difficult.

The typical lifespan of a properly maintained air conditioning until is between ten and fifteen years.

Newer systems tend to run more efficiently and perform better.

Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late

When your air conditioner is not running properly, you may be tempted to wait for repairs. However, you should not continue running your air conditioner once it encounters problems, even if these seem relatively minor.

Never wait for an AC to breakdown before calling CZ Heating because the issue may only worsen and require more costly repairs later on.
