Does Your Air Conditioning Need to be Replaced?
If you’ve spent even a single summer in Glendale, you know there is only one way to describe the weather: hotter than hot. With record-breaking temperatures becoming less and less unusual, Valley residents don’t blink an eye when the mercury in the thermometer regularly climbs above 115 degrees. For those four to five months of the year, having a well-functioning air conditioner is not just a luxury, it is an absolute necessity. In extreme temperatures, being stuck in a non-air-conditioned space can quickly escalate from simply being uncomfortable to being downright dangerous for your health and well-being.
Even though there are steps you can take to keep your unit in good health, the time will still eventually come when you need to consider replacing it. Making the big decision can be difficult, so here are five questions you can ask yourself when trying to make the jump to a new unit.
5 Signs it’s Time for a New HVAC
If your air conditioner is experiencing one or more of the following issues, it might just be time to replace it. At the very least, you should contact your friends at ACE for a professional assessment of your air conditioner.
Are Your Electricity Bills Higher Than You’d Like?
Arizonians are accustomed to electricity bills of several hundred dollars or more, but you don’t have to settle for emptying your wallet every month. An old, inefficient unit needs to work harder to cool your home, requiring more power and driving your bill up. Updated technology has made new air conditioners more energy-efficient than ever, so you could save yourself a lot of money per month by making the upgrade.
Does Your Air Conditioner Use R-22 Freon?
Recently, the U.S. government voted to phase out the legal use of Freon, a chemical used by many older air conditioning units. This is an excellent move for energy-saving measures but is affecting homeowners by driving up the replacement cost of Freon. Because many units require a regular refill of the chemical, you can end up paying a bill that gets higher and higher every year. New units use a refrigerant called R410A, so you won’t have to worry about the increasing cost of Freon.
Have Repairs Become a Regular Occurence?
You might have an AC unit that functions but seems to require regular repairs to make it through the summer months. Even small fixes and part replacements can add up over time, costing you a lot of money. Many homeowners with problem air conditioners live in constant worry about the next big, expensive repair that is looming in their future. Replacing your unit can knock out this stress and save you the constant hassle of repeated calls to the repair company.
Are You Less Comfortable When the AC is Running?
If you have an older, inefficient unit, it can struggle to maintain a comfortable temperature. You may feel that your home never really cools down as much as you would like and find yourself too warm to truly relax. Make a positive change in your quality of life and invest in a new unit that will find it easier to cool your space.
Is Your A/C Unit 10 Years Old or Older?
With excellent, regular tune-ups and maintenance, an AC unit can hang on anywhere from 10 to 20 years. However, once the 10-year mark approaches, your chances of a unit failure go up significantly. Especially in the extreme heat of a desert state like Arizona, air conditioners have to work extremely hard to do their jobs, leading to wear and tear. You will likely see the expensive repairs begin to add up after about 10 years, so replacing your air conditioner could be a money-saving choice.
We know and understand how Arizona’s relentless sun takes a toll on your air conditioner. Which means we know what to look for – connections that commonly fail, parts that regularly break, and components that have to be tested. Keep in mind that regular A/C tune-ups can extend the life of your air conditioner unit.
Signs of Air Conditioning Troubles
If you answered yes to one or more of the questions above, an AC replacement is likely a good choice for you. Don’t wait until Glendale’s weather forecast soars past the hundred-degree mark because dealing with a broken AC unit in the middle of summer is a hot, sweaty nightmare.
Weather Can & Does Play a Role in A/C Health
In Arizona the monsoon season can bring aggressive thunderstorms, that include strong wind gusts and rain. On the opposite side of the coin, you have 100-degree-plus weather with sun rays hot enough to fry an egg. Your central air cooling system has to work hard to keep up with the never ending demand for cold air.
Glendale is not alone. In fact, all of the Phoenix area has to deal with nearly unbearable temperatures during the summer and below freezing temperatures during the winter. This is why it’s not only important that your new air chiller is reliable but that it is adequate for cooling your entire home and installed properly to avoid downtime.

3 Considerations for New HVAC Installation
Before deciding on a new HVAC unit, you must take these three factors into consideration.
1. J Manual
Each of our new air conditioning installation experts are certified HVAC technicians who know the J Manual inside and out. This is the air conditioning guy’s bible is regards to measuring and ordering a cooling unit that will stand up to the weather and cool your whole house. We don’t simply order another air conditioning system like your last, we do our due diligence to make sure your new unit will satisfy.
2. Ventilation & Ductwork
A full analysis of your home’s ductwork will help us to determine the right air conditioner for your family’s needs. We want to make sure that air flows and moves through the home in a manner that is conducive with the air conditioner you buy.
3. SEER Rating
We also help explain the differences in each cooling system, such as SEER scores. This is your Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, goes from 13 to 21, and it’s a fancy way of saying how much you can expect to pay in energy costs throughout the year. A rule of thumb is that the higher the SEER rating, the more expensive your air conditioning unit will cost.

Glendale is a thriving West Valley city in Phoenix that boasts nearly a quarter million residents. This part of Arizona was first developed in the late 1800s; much in part due to a New Hartford, New York man named William John Murphy. Murphy was tasked with building 40 miles of Arizona Canal from Granite Reef to New River for the Arizona Canal Company. After settling in the area, Murphy created the Arizona Improvement Company with the goal of selling his somewhat worthless land rights south of the canal. Murphy is also credited with having an 18-mile road from Phoenix to Glendale constructed, which quickly led to new settlers and eventually to the city we know today.
