We can help you determine if you need a new air conditioning system.
When it is hot outside, there are few things that are as refreshing as entering a home that is cool, comfortable and has just the right level of humidity. If your air conditioning system has been less than stellar lately, you might be wondering if it needs to be replaced or if a repair will do.
At Hodge Heating & Air Conditioning of Lake Norman Inc., we want to help you determine if you need a new air conditioning system or if a repair is the best decision for you. Here are a few instances in which a new air conditioning system is the best option in most cases:
- If your air conditioner is older than 10 years- When your air conditioner reaches the ripe old age of 10, things may start to break down. The average lifespan of an air conditioner is between 10-15 years, so it can be advantageous to invest in a new, more efficient air conditioning system at this point rather than spending money on a unit that may need subsequent repairs.
- If you are making frequent repairs. While you might hope that your next repair is going to be your last, if you have been making frequent and continual repairs, then you may be better served by investing in a new unit.
- If cooling is inadequate/not working. When air conditioners age, sometimes they don’t break but can just lessen in their effectiveness, leaving you with a warm house and humid air.
- If the unit is leaking. Air conditioning systems can start to leak coolant or refrigerant when they’re older. Either of these are dangerous to both humans and pets and are a sign that you should replace your air conditioner.
