Before we know it, the weather is going to warm up and in order to stay cool and comfortable, you’ll need to turn on the AC. Is your cooling system up for the job? Or do you need to upgrade to a new air conditioner before summer? If your AC system struggled to keep up last year, it likely won’t make it through another season—especially if you noticed any of the following signs.
Higher Energy Bills – An older cooling system has to work harder to maintain a stable temperature, which uses more energy. An inefficient system will continue to drive up monthly hydro bills until it eventually leads to a breakdown. If you notice that your energy bill is unusually high when using your AC, it’s likely you’ll need to look into a new air conditioner soon.
Loud Operation – As an air conditioner ages, parts wear down and start to rattle or grind. While some sounds can be remedied with AC service or repair, if the air conditioning system is over 10 years old, it’s often more economical to look into upgrading to a new unit.
Decreased Comfort – An air conditioner is supposed to keep your whole house cool and comfortable. If you notice that you’re having problems with the humidity or uneven cooling—you could be facing an imminent breakdown.
