It’s constantly making spooky noises…it leaves parts of your house freezing cold while others hot…it’s always breaking down for no apparent reason—does this sound like your air conditioning system? Although Halloween is right around the corner and ghosts, ghouls, and goblins are running about, we can assure you that your AC isn’t haunted…but it might be time for an upgrade. If your air conditioning system is guilty of any of the following, stop blaming the ghosts and consider investing in a new AC.
You’re Always Repairing It
While preventative and routine maintenance are commonplace, if your AC is always in need of repair and the repairs keep getting bigger and more expensive, it’s time for a new system. While the thought of getting a new AC may leave you feeling spooked, don’t fret! The initial cost will be worth it in the long run.
Some Rooms are Freezing, Some Rooms are Hot
It’s been said that cold spots and hot spots are caused by spirits roaming around—but if you have rooms in your home that are freezing, don’t be scared. Inconsistent temperatures throughout the home are a surefire sign that your air conditioner is dealing with some sort of issue. Whether the system is too old, has poor insulation, or ductwork issues—it’s time to consider other AC options or have a maintenance checkup by an experienced technician.
It’s 10 or More Years Old
If your air conditioner is older than you, it’s time to upgrade. The general consensus is that air conditioners have about 10 to 15 years of operating before it’s time to throw in the towel. There comes a point when no amount of preventative maintenance can help an AC that’s just too old. Age is a common catalyst of a laundry list of potential AC problems including general inefficiency and increased energy bills.
