Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs to Be Replaced
Our knowledgeable technicians can help determine if your air conditioning system needs an upgrade. The most common signs your air conditioner needs to be replaced include:
- Age –Air conditioners typically last 15 to 20 years.
- Inefficient Air –If you notice inconsistency in the airflow from your system, it may be time to upgrade to a more efficient model.

Air Conditioning FAQs
How often do air filters need to be changed?
The frequency of air filter replacement depends on various factors, such as the type of filter, the number of occupants, and the presence of pets in the home. As a general rule, changing air filters every 1-3 months is recommended for optimal performance and indoor air quality.
Do bigger air conditioning units perform better?
Not necessarily. Air conditioning units should be sized appropriately for the space intended to cool. An oversized unit can lead to poor performance, increased energy consumption, and reduced comfort due to short cycling.
How long does HVAC equipment last?
The lifespan of HVAC equipment can vary depending on the brand, model, and usage. On average, a well-maintained system can last 10-15 years for air conditioners and heat pumps, and 15-20 years for furnaces and boilers.
How often should I have my air conditioning unit serviced?
Air conditioning units should be serviced at least once a year, ideally before the cooling season starts. Routine maintenance can help improve efficiency, prevent breakdowns, and extend the lifespan of the equipment.
How can I improve the air quality in my home?
Several ways to improve indoor air quality include regular cleaning and dusting, using air purifiers, installing ventilation systems, and maintaining proper humidity levels. Additionally, changing air filters regularly helps improve air quality.
What is duct cleaning?
Duct cleaning is the process of cleaning the air ducts in a home or building to remove dirt, debris, and other contaminants that can accumulate over time. This can help improve indoor air quality, reduce energy costs, and prevent potential health issues associated with poor air quality.
How do I know when it’s time for an AC replacement?
Several signs indicate it might be time to replace your AC unit. The most obvious sign is that your unit no longer keeps your home cool, even when running continuously. If your AC is making strange noises, emitting unpleasant odors, or causing your energy bills to skyrocket, it may be time for a replacement. Age is also a factor, as most AC units have a lifespan of around 10-15 years.
