Nobody wants to be stuck without air conditioning during a hot and humid Pennsylvania summer, which means that as a homeowner or business owner, you need to know when to get AC replacement in Southampton. Fortunately, there are a number of warning signs that indicate your air conditioner is almost on its last legs.
Warning Signs You Need AC Replacement
Unless your AC has totally stopped working, you might be asking yourself whether your appliance can be repaired before committing to replacing it. And that’s a totally valid question, since nobody wants to spend more money than necessary. However, in some instances, trying to repair an AC is futile, and you’ll only wind up investing in a new appliance after all. Here are some warning signs your AC can’t be repaired and needs replacing:
- Your AC is more than 10 years old. This means it’s pretty much reached the end of its life. Investing in a new, energy-efficient appliance would be the smarter, more cost-effective choice.
- The appliance emits an electrical burning smell. This indicates that some of the elements have burnt out.
- The AC fails to cool. If you’re running the appliance without it being near to any heat-emitting electronics and it still fails to cool, that could signal a problem with the motor, evaporator coil, thermostat or sensors.
At the same time, unusual noises or a leaking appliance can also be signs of problems that might not be able to be repaired.
AC Replacement to Enhance Your Quality of Life
A malfunctioning air conditioner isn’t the only reason to replace an AC. You might simply want to upgrade a wall-mounted or window-mounted model to a central air system that allows you to keep the temperature constant throughout your home or a mini-split system that allows you to regulate the temperatures in the individual rooms. Having this type of control over the cooling of your home can significantly increase your comfort level and enhance your quality of life during the warm months.
