When Should I Replace My AC Unit?
To avoid any air conditioning conundrums, keep an eye out for early signs your AC unit needs to be replaced. Some common signs that it’s time to buy a new central HVAC unit include:
- Limited airflow: If you notice that temperatures vary between rooms or there’s a lack of airflow throughout your home, it may be time to replace your unit.
- AC unit is 15+ years old: A typical lifespan of an HVAC unit is anywhere from 8 to 15 years, so if yours is nearing the end of that time, consider replacing it instead of spending more money on repairs.
- AC unit uses R-22 refrigerant: R-22 refrigerant is being phased out, so if your unit requires repairs and uses R-22 refrigerant, it may be more affordable to install a new one.
- Multiple breakdowns in a short period of time: If you’re frequently calling HVAC technicians to fix your AC, you may save money by replacing it.
Do Cosmetic Scratches & Dents Affect an AC Unit’s Performance?
Not at all! Cosmetic scratches or dents don’t impact how your AC unit’s ability to effectively cool your home. Sometimes units get bumped or bruised during manufacturing or transportation. While it may not appear perfect on the outside, it’s perfect on the inside! All units with external blemishes are fully operational, high-quality, and run at peak efficiency.
What Size AC Unit Do I Need?
There are a variety of factors that impact what size unit your home requires. While a professional HVAC technician can give you the most accurate measurement, there are a few principles that can be helpful to understand when searching for a new AC. Most units are rated by their cooling capacity, measured in British Thermal Units per Hour (BTUh) or tons, and Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER).
The right choice for you takes into account the size of your home and your energy efficiency goals. A common misconception about HVAC units is that the bigger the unit, the better it cools your home. This isn’t necessarily true and often results in higher operating costs and inefficient cooling cycles. Proper unit size is essential for efficiency, so stick to your home’s recommended unit size.
Other variables to consider when choosing an AC unit include the amount of direct sun exposure, the number of people in the home, the number of exterior windows, the total square footage to be cooled, the weather conditions, and more.
