How to Know When It’s Time for an AC Replacement

Your air conditioner serves a necessary purpose in your home. That’s why it’s important to make sure it is fully functioning. AC units typically last between 10 and 15 years, so if you’ve had your unit for a while, here are a few signs to let you know that it may be time for an AC replacement.

  • It’s not producing cold air. Perhaps the most obvious sign that you’re in need of an AC replacement is a noticeable lack of cold air. Cooling off your home is an AC unit’s main function, so if you’re not getting the cold air you need, you might need a new unit.
  • It needs excessive repairs. Yearly check-ups to your AC unit can help keep it from needing major repairs, but if you’re having to constantly get new parts looked at or replaced, it may be a sign that your AC is on the fritz and you should get a new one.
  • It’s leaking. Your air conditioner uses a cooling liquid to replace the hot air in your home with cold air. If you notice an abnormal amount of condensation or leakage outside of your AC unit, there is likely a bigger issue at hand, and you may need an AC replacement.
