It’s old. It’s always breaking down without reason. It leaves parts of your home freezing cold. It’s your air conditioner — and it’s…haunted! OK, so maybe it’s not exactly haunted, but if your air conditioning system is showing any of these four signs, stop blaming the spirits and consider investing in a new air conditioner.
1. Your air conditioning system is more than 10 years old.
When was your air conditioning system installed? If you can’t remember, it’s probably time to upgrade to a new system. While certain air conditioners can last upwards of 15 years, if you haven’t exactly been diligent about maintaining your system (ie: changing the air filter, cleaning the ductwork, ensuring the components are lubricated, etc.), your system probably won’t have a lifespan this long. If your air conditioning system is in need of a costly repair (spooky!) and it’s more than 10 years old, consider upgrading to a new system.
2. You’re always repairing your air conditioning system.
Is your air conditioning system in constant need of repair? Have you spent hundreds, or even thousands, on repairs over the years? If so, it’s time to bid adieu to your current HVAC system. Although the initial cost of upgrading to a new air conditioning system can be scary, the amount of money you’ll save on repairs will outweigh the price tag in the long run. A good rule of thumb to keep in mind: if your air conditioning system needs a repair that costs more than half of what you paid for the entire HVAC system, consider investing in a new system.
3. There are inconsistent temperatures throughout your home.
Does a certain room in your home always feel cold? Although it’s been said that cold spots are caused by paranormal activity, don’t call Ghost Busters just yet. The problem is likely chalked up to an issue with your air conditioning system. Temperature inconsistencies can occur for numerous reasons. Whether your system is the wrong size for your home, needs maintenance, has bad insulation, or faulty ductwork, it’s a good idea to consider investing in a new HVAC system.
4. Your air conditioning system makes eerie noises.
Is your air conditioner always making loud, scary sounds? While we’d love to blame it on ghosts, the noises are likely caused by a problem with the ductwork. Undersized ductwork can cause significant air leakage, which can not only result is noise, but increased energy bills too!
