The summer’s end does not always mean the end of hot days in the Las Vegas Desert. Heat can strike at almost any time, and we depend on air conditioners for most of the year. To ensure the AC units are ready to work at a moments notice, we all need to take extra precautions with our residential air conditioning systems. At the end of summer, with the demand and pressure on the system, the repairs may be getting heavy and maybe the unit may be beyond help. Today, we at Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning would like to share the warning signs you have a dying air conditioner at the end of summer.
How Old HVAC System Is
Being still a useful measuring stick, although the age of an air conditioner isn’t an absolute sign of whether it’s ready to be replaced. A central air conditioner’s average life expectancy is 10 to 15 years. If any of the other signs below usually mean the system is almost at the end along with a system is over 15 years. We don’t recommend keeping one longer than 15 years even if an AC seems to be working well.
Spikes in Electric Bill
Until the final one or two years of its service life, an air conditioner that receives regular annual maintenance can retain 95% of its original energy efficiency. An AC will begin to rapidly lose its efficient operation and become costly to run during that last stretch. To the ones from previous summers, compare your current electrical bills and see of there is any spikes in the utility bills. If so, it is likely a warning signs the unit needs to be replaced.
Cooling Capacity Declines
The air conditioner isn’t keeping your house cool enough simply put. It can’t keep up on the hottest days. Hot spots in rooms are the hot spots in rooms. Though distant rooms along the ventilation system are staying too warm, the center of the house may still stay cool.
Why Does My AC Make a Weird Noise
Although modern technology has helped make them run quieter than ever before, air conditioners won’t run in complete silence. It may be dying if you have an AC that has started to intrude into your tranquil home life with the noise it makes. Many sounds point toward a replacement, though a single strange sound points toward a repair need.
High Humidity & Excessive Dust
The indoor air quality can suffer a negative impact with an old and failing air conditioner. Its declining cooling power will also allow more humidity to circulate as it spreads around dust and other debris. You almost certainly have an AC that’s ready to retire when you combine this with a noticeable decline in comfort and system age.
