Should You Replace Your Air Conditioner?

Summer is fast approaching, which means it’s time to check on your home’s air conditioner. If your air conditioner was having trouble keeping your house cool last summer, it may be time for an air conditioner replacement. Installing a new system now will get you ready for the summer heat, and if you upgrade to a mini split heat pump air conditioner, you’ll experience a whole host of benefits, including better energy efficiency.

Signs You Need to Replace Your Air Conditioner

If your AC won’t turn on at all, it’s easy to tell that you need an AC replacement. But there are other signs that your air conditioner is on its way out. 

Your Air Conditioner Is Over 10 Years Old 

If the AC in your home isn’t working, it might just be getting old. Air conditioners don’t last forever—the average lifespan of an air conditioner is about 15 years. If you’re experiencing problems with your AC and it’s over 10 years old, it could be time to replace your air conditioner. 

Your AC Needs Frequent Repairs 

Have you called an AC company for repairs multiple times in the past few years? Frequent repairs are a sign you need to replace your air conditioner, and doing so will be more cost-effective in the long run than constantly paying for repair services. 

Your AC Won’t Cool Your House Down Enough 

Poor performance is often a sign you need a new air conditioner. If your air conditioner is not cooling your home as effectively as it used to or is taking longer to reach your desired temperature, you might need to replace your air conditioner. 

Replace Your Air Conditioner with a Mini Split Heat Pump

A dying air conditioner is a great opportunity to upgrade to mini split heat pumps. Mini split heat pumps transfer heat and humidity out of your home the same way an air conditioner does, but they are more energy efficient, which can save you money on your cooling bills. 

Mini split air conditioners have many advantages over traditional air conditioners: 

  • Better energy efficiency 
  • Heating and cooling in one unit 
  • Ductless and can be installed almost anywhere in your home 
  • Safer than window air conditioners since they can’t be pulled out
