When To Replace Your Air Conditioner

Many homeowners attempt to put off replacing the air conditioning system for as long as possible due to the cost of replacement. Our HVAC technicians can assess the performance of your existing system and your ductwork to determine if replacement is the best option for you. In addition, there are some signs that can help you decide when the time has come for an upgrade.

Your air conditioner may need to be replaced when:

  • You’ve had the system for more than a decade
  • The air conditioner needs frequent repairs
  • The temperature is not cool throughout all areas of your home
  • It isn’t keeping your home cool at all
  • The airflow is reduced
  • Home energy costs have been increasing and performance decreasing

The seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) provides valuable information about the energy efficiency of air conditioning systems. We can help you compare energy efficiency, features, and prices to find the right system to keep your home cool. Our technicians have the experience needed to ensure the best quality installation services for AC replacement in Greenville. After installation, you can count on us to help you extend the life span of your system with annual maintenance services.

Should You Hire a Professional To Install Your Air Conditioner? 

The quality of your air conditioner installation could greatly affect your system’s performance. A poorly installed unit could have a number of problems down the road and has a greater chance of breaking down. At Waldrop Plumbing, Heating & Air, our technicians are highly trained and capable of successfully installing your unit. We’ll assess your home and assist you in choosing the right unit for you. We’ll take into account factors such as your budget, your warranty, and the size of your home. We offer free second opinions for replacements and installations, and after a new air conditioner is chosen, we’ll install the system, and we won’t consider our job complete until we’re certain your unit is working properly. 

Trust the Pros To Size Your Air Conditioner in Greenville, SC

Your new air conditioner needs to be the right size and have sufficient capacity to keep your home cool during the summer months. If the system is too small or too large for your home, it can cause a variety of problems, including insufficient cooling, short-cycling, increased energy bills, and increased wear and tear on your system. To ensure that you have the right size AC installed, you’ll need to involve a professional who can perform what is called a “load calculation.” This evaluation takes a number of factors into consideration, like the size of your home, how many windows and doors you have, how well your air ducts are sealed, and much more. This calculation makes it clear what size air conditioner you need to buy for optimum performance and energy efficiency.

Our NATE-certified Greenville AC installation technicians can evaluate your home to determine the best size and type of system to provide the energy efficiency and reliable performance you expect.

If you’re ready to upgrade your air conditioner and you are in Greenville, SC, or the upstate South Carolina area, call (864) 536-0887 to discuss your needs.

Air Conditioning Replacement & Installation FAQs

Is it time to replace my air conditioner?

After about 10 years of use, you need to start thinking about replacing your air conditioner. The average life span of the modern air conditioner is about 15 years, and after 10 years, the system will start losing efficiency. While you can extend this life span with proper maintenance, you will eventually need to replace the system. The Waldrop team can help you determine if it’s the right time for a new AC unit.

Can I install my new AC unit on my own?

Air conditioning units need to be installed by a trained professional. These systems are quite complicated and require the right knowledge to install. In addition, poor installation can put your home at risk of a fire. Working with a NATE-certified technician is the best option for AC installation.

How large of an air conditioner do I need?

Air conditioners need to be sized appropriately for your home and demand. This requires proper load calculation, which is something your HVAC technician will provide. A properly sized air conditioner will offer better efficiency and more even cooling throughout your home.
