Time for a New Air Conditioner? How to Tell If You Should Make That Call

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  • Your Unit is Outdated: Any central air unit only has a lifespan of about 15 years.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.
