If you are like a lot of people, you more than likely don’t think much about how well your AC is running until it isn’t working anymore. However, if your unit stops working in the heat of the summer, it can leave you scrambling to get it back up and running. It is far better to stay on top of your AC maintenance so that you don’t run into these problems down the road. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about some signs that can indicate your unit is losing its efficiency and trouble could be near.
How Do I Know when My AC Unit Needs to Be Replaced?
Here are some of the things you should be looking for and aware of to stay on top of any potential AC problems.
– Age of AC Unit: There is no way around it, even when you take good care of your AC unit, over time it is going to start to wear down. Most people can count on their units lasting between 10 and 15 years before needing to be replaced. If you aren’t maintaining your unit properly, you are going to see it wear down far quicker than a unit that has been meticulously maintained. The older your unit is, the less efficient it is going to be. If your AC is over 10 years old and you are having issues with it, you may be better of replacing rather than repairing.
– Strange AC Sounds: All AC units make a certain amount of noise when they are running. However, if you notice that your unit is all of a sudden making strange noises that are out of the norm, you could be running into parts that are broken or loose. If there are parts that are broken or loose, it can have an impact on the efficiency of your unit. You should have it looked at as soon as you notice something out of the norm.
– Foul AC Odors: You should never smell anything that resembles something burning or mold. If you smell something like this coming from your vents, it can mean you have a problem somewhere. Some are more dangerous than others, but you should always have any foul smell checked out by a professional.
– Higher Energy Bills: If you notice that there is a sudden increase in your energy bills from last year to this year, it could mean that your AC isn’t running efficiently for some reason. A professional can get to the bottom of the cause to help increase the efficiency of your unit.
