5 Signs It’s Time To Replace Your AC System

HVAC Repair

Have you noticed that your AC system has been acting up lately? This could be an indication that it is time to start looking for a replacement. Here at Waldrop, we want to make sure you make an informed decision when it comes to replacing your AC system. That is why we have put together a list of quick tips that will help you determine if it is time to replace your system.

The System is Over 10 Years Old

As your system ages, it loses efficiency, which makes it work harder to keep you cool. It is important that you replace your system as it reaches the end of its useful life to ensure your home receives the level of comfort it deserves.

Unusually High Energy Bills

As mentioned above, when your system ages, it loses efficiency. This can lead to higher energy bills as your system struggles to keep you comfortable. If you notice a higher cost in energy bills, it may be time to have your system inspected.

Loud or Unusual Noises

Your HVAC system should never make a loud, unusual sound. This is a clear indication that there is something wrong with your unit. If you are currently experiencing this in your home, it’s time to call a professional like our Waldrop team to inspect your system.

Repairs Outweigh Replacement Costs

As a rule of thumb, if your repair costs equal about two-thirds of the cost of a brand new system, it is time to replace your system as a whole. Repair costs can add up fast, and it is important that you aren’t spending too much money on an old system when you can opt-in for a new one.

Uneven Temperatures

Lastly, the most telling sign that you need to replace your AC system is a lack of comfort. If you are uncomfortable in your home or are struggling to stay cool, it’s time to replace your system. When your HVAC unit cannot get the job done, it is better to start fresh with a new system that can guarantee comfort any time of year!
