Signs That You Need to Replace Your Central AC System

central air installation cost

A dependable central air conditioning system is essential for keeping your home environment cool and pleasant through the summer season. Like any other appliance, your central AC unit too has a limited lifespan and will need to be replaced at some point in time. But how can you tell when it’s time to replace your dependable old cooling system with a new one? Here are some signs that will clearly tell you it’s time for an upgrade.

7 Realistic signs you need to replace your central AC System

1. You spend frequently on costly repairs

Higher and frequent repair bills may be an indication that your central air conditioning unit is nearing the end of its useful life. Units that are older are more likely to break down, which raises the cost of maintenance. If your existing AC unit has reached this point, replacing it would be a more economical option to continuing spending money on never-ending repairs.

2. You experience inconsistent cooling

Do some rooms in your house feel like the Arctic while others are more akin to a sauna? Inconsistent cooling is a red flag that your central AC system is struggling to distribute cool air evenly throughout your home. This could be due to various factors, such as ductwork issues or an aging compressor. If your central air conditioning unit can’t keep every corner of your home consistently cooled, it’s a clear indication that it’s time to explore the possibility of a replacement.

4. You hear excessive noise

As central air conditioning units age, they can become increasingly noisy during operation. Rattling, buzzing, or clanking sounds are not only annoying but also a red flag that something may be seriously wrong with your AC system. Consider this an opportunity to upgrade to newer models that are designed to operate more quietly, ensuring a peaceful and undisturbed indoor environment.

5. Your system is past its tenure 

Generally, central AC systems have a lifespan of around 10-15 years. If your unit is approaching or exceeding this age range, it’s a good idea to start considering a replacement. Older units are not only less efficient but also more prone to breakdowns which will leave you sweating it out during the hottest months.

6. Your system is still using Freon (R-22)

If your central AC system uses Freon (R-22) refrigerant, it’s essential to know that R-22 is being phased out due to its harmful environmental impact. As of 2020, the production and import of R-22 have been banned in the United States. Consequently, the cost of servicing AC units that use R-22 has skyrocketed. If your AC system relies on this refrigerant, it might be more cost-effective in the long run to invest in a new, eco-friendly central air conditioning unit that uses the approved R-410A refrigerant.

7. Your AC unit cycles constantly

Does your central AC system seem to be turning on and off more frequently than it used to? This continuous cycling not only affects your comfort but also puts a strain on the components of the system, leading to premature wear and tear. If this issue persists, it’s time to consider a new AC unit installation.
