Summer is right around the corner, and your air-conditioner will be crucial for comfort in Dayton. A well-maintained AC unit, with yearly maintenance tune-ups and regular filter changes, can last from 10 to 15 years. In this blog, Lisa Crosley, President of Lifestyle Comfort Solutions, explains how to know when your cooling system needs to be replaced.
How old is your air conditioner? The most common reason for a new unit is age. The older your unit gets, the less efficient it is. Moreover, it will continue to lose energy efficiency over time.
Pay attention to how often it needs repairs. Once a year isn’t excessive, but it does tell you the time to replace the unit is fast approaching. As your cooling unit ages, your energy dollars are better invested in a new unit, rather than an expensive, major repair.
Does the temperature in your home remain stable? Does it fluctuate?
Are you plagued with hot/cold spots? Rooms you can’t use in some seasons? A hot, uncomfortable second floor?
Aging equipment is just one possible reason. Others include leaky ductwork or poor insulation.
A new unit may be called for. But,duct sealing/repair or air-balancing might fix the problems.
Trust your Lifestyle Comfort Solutions expert to get to the bottom of comfort issues.
Feeling warm and sticky in your home? It may be that your aging air-conditioner can no longer dehumidify as well as it should. Too often, this is an overlooked indicator that your air-conditioner should be replaced.
