It’s always a tough decision when it comes time to replace your air conditioner. Home comfort systems are always major investments.

Unless you’re an HVAC professional, it can also be challenging to determine whether your unit will need to be replaced or merely repaired. 

Fortunately, with some advice from our NATE-certified technicians here at Five Star Heating & Cooling Group, there are warning signs it’s probably time for a new AC.

Our home comfort heroes present the following:

Airflow Symptoms

Does it feel like your home comfort equipment is struggling to keep cool even after adjusting the temperature? Poor or warmer airflow could be a possible warning sign your air conditioner is in need of service or needs replaced. If cleaning or replacing your air filter doesn’t improve the airflow in your home, it might be time to give us a call.

Age of A/C

As your central air conditioning system continues to age, your equipment becomes susceptible to needing repairs. Even the most maintained AC units on average last at least ten years. With HVAC technology always changing and improving, it can become inconvenient to find the replacement parts your A/C needs to run the most efficiently. 

Strange Noises & Smells

When an air conditioner is running correctly, there should be no smell coming from the system and it should sound like a gentle hum. When unusual noises or smells begin occurring, you could have more problems arise that are more expensive. When your AC equipment starts experiencing these problems, it is best to call a skilled technician from our team to come over and diagnose the problem you’re having with your A/C.
