You won’t find an Arizona homeowner that doesn’t want to be cool and comfortable during the heat of the summer months. Thanks to today’s great centralized A/C units, most homes stay that way. Sooner or later, though, these have to be replaced. Wondering whether it might be time? This guide can help.
- Banging or Clanking Sound: This is often caused by a loose part or system component. It’s a pretty good sign that your compressor is going, and while you can certainly invest the money in a replacement, often given the age of the unit and the conditions to which it is exposed on a daily basis mean replacing the entire thing is going to be a better bet.
- Rooms Are Simply Too Hot: If there are entire parts of your home that are far too hot, your current unit just isn’t doing its job. It is completely possible that your A/C unit isn’t functioning like it should be. It’s also possible the unit is too small for the home. Your best bet, either way, is to talk to a qualified technician to discover more about the problem, then make some good decisions in that direction.
- Your Unit is Outdated: Any central air unit only has a lifespan of about 15 years. After that, you’re going to have major repairs on a regular basis. Even if your unit is just a decade old, though, the chances are good that you can save quite a bit of money on your cooling costs by replacing it.
