Telltale Signs You Need an Air Conditioning Replacement

May 26, 2020

Summers in Crossville, TN, are muggy and hot, and you rely on your air conditioning system for relief. According to Energy Star, a typical air conditioner has a lifespan of about 10 years. Around this time, the system will start showing telltale signs that it needs to be replaced. Here are the top signs that your home could benefit from an air conditioning replacement.

Inconsistent Temperature and Humidity

If some rooms in your home are too hot, and others are too cold, your old air conditioner could be the problem. When the air conditioner reaches the end of its lifespan, it’s less effective at maintaining consistent temperatures. You might also notice that your home is too humid. High indoor humidity makes your skin feel clammy.

Unusual Sounds

A properly functioning air conditioning system operates quietly. You should only hear a few sounds, including a click at the start of a cooling cycle and the whooshing of the air handler’s fan blowing cooled air into your home’s ducts and vents. If you hear grinding, hissing, banging, clanging or screeching sounds, this suggests a problem with one or more of the system’s moving parts. A part could be bent, broken or loose. If the part would cost one-third the price of an air conditioning replacement and the system is 10 years old or more, you’re better off installing a new cooling system.

Frequent Problems

Air conditioning systems have a lot of parts. Around the end of the system’s lifespan, those parts will wear out or break. One month, it could be the capacitor. The next month, there could be a refrigerant leak. Frequent repairs and ongoing disruptions to your comfort are good reasons for air conditioning replacement.
