Does Your Air Conditioning Need to be Replaced?
With summers in Scottsdale reaching temperatures that can literally fry an egg on the pavement, a functioning air conditioning unit is not just a luxury, it is an absolute need. As the thermometer reaches upward of 115 degrees, having an air-conditioned space to cool off in is not just about comfort, but about safety as well.
Arizona AC units are among the hardest-working machines out there, constantly battling the sweltering summers that often last for five months out of the year. Eventually, every desert homeowner will find themselves having to decide if it is time to replace their air conditioner. It can be difficult to know when the right time for a unit replacement is, so here are five key signs that your A/C is near the end of its life.
5 Signs it’s Time for a New HVAC
If your air conditioner is older than 10 years, it’s definitely pushing its Arizona expected lifespan. But age alone is not a definitive guide to knowing whether your air conditioner needs to be replaced with a new one. Below we’ve listed several of the most common warning signs that an air conditioner is on its way out.
Would You Like to Lower Your Electricity Bill?
It’s not unusual for Arizona residents to pay hundreds of dollars a month for electricity in the summer, especially with the AC running at maximum capacity. If you have an older unit, it has to work even harder to cool your home, and the constant use of power is going to burn up your budget. Recent innovations in air conditioning technology have produced units that are more efficient than ever, which will save you significant money on electricity costs.
Is Your air Conditioner Running On Old Refrigerant?
If you haven’t heard, the United States government has elected to phase out the use of Freon as an energy-saving measure. While this has long-term positive effects for everyone, in the short-term it has had the side effect of driving the cost of Freon through the roof. Many older units need regular refills of Freon, which adds up to major dollars. It might be worth replacing your unit for one that runs on the new refrigerant (R410A), because you will have to make the switch eventually anyway.
Are You Tired of Spending Money On Repairs?
Many homeowners think of their air conditioner as a ticking time bomb, counting down to its next expensive repair. Older units can have problem after problem, and even small repairs add up to big money. Or you may know that there is a big repair on the horizon, one that is going to cost a large amount of money. Replacing your old, worn-out unit with a new one can stop those repair calls in their tracks, saving you money, time and stress.
Do You Find Your Room is Never Quite Cold or Warm Enough?
Everyone deserves to be comfortable in their own home, and an inefficient air conditioner can affect your ability to relax, enjoy your space and even get a good night’s sleep. Making the smart investment to replace your old unit can be a life-changer in terms of day-to-day comfort and happiness.
Have You Owned Your Air Conditioner for 10 Years or Longer?
Although a well-maintained unit can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years, you run the risk of costly repairs after the 10-year mark. Especially in Arizona, it is normal for air conditioners to begin to break down at a certain age. As a homeowner, you should consider if investing in a brand-new unit is worth the expensive repairs it can save you down the road. In this case, the answer is often yes.
We understand what the extreme temperatures can do you an air conditioner and in our experience, units are in need of replacement after about 10 years. If you air conditioner is around this age or older, have one of our technicians inspect it.
Signs of Air Conditioning Troubles
If you can relate to any of the five factors above, you may want to look into replacing your air conditioning unit. Don’t make the mistake of waiting until it’s too late and putting yourself in the position of having to suffer through a broken air conditioner in the dead of the Arizona summer.
Weather Can & Does Play a Role in A/C Health
Arizona goes through rough weather, whether in the height of summer or the brisk cold winter nights. We also experience a monsoon season that brings in inches of rainfall in small burst storms, winds strong enough to take down trees, and enough dust to trigger anyone’s slightest allergies. All of this is bad news for your air conditioner and your friends at ACE not only know this, but know how to inspect your air conditioner for storm damage. We know what to look for, because we are Phoenix residents too!

3 Considerations for New HVAC Installation
Before deciding on a new HVAC unit, you must take these three factors into consideration.
1. J Manual
The J Manual is one of the most important tools in an HVAC technician’s toolbox. This is a guide on determining your home’s air conditioning needs and allows the technician to calculate exactly what size cooling unit you need. We don’t simply replace your A/C with a unit similar to your old one. We ensure the furthest corner of your house is properly cooled when it needs to be.
2. Ventilation & Ductwork
Part of determining the right air conditioner for your family’s needs includes a full assessment of your home’s ductwork. We inspect the duct system to make sure you have adequate air flow thoughout the house. This means not only does your air reach each room, but it is returned to the system just as efficiently.
3. SEER Rating
If you’ve been shopping air conditioners, you’re likely familiar with its SEER rating. This stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating and as the name suggests, it gives homeowners an idea of how much is will cost to operate the cooling system. The higher the number, the more energy efficient the unit is. SEER ratings range from 13 to 21; with the higher number costing more upfront.

Scottsdale, Arizona is an upscale part of Phoenix that has 230,000 residents and growing. Post the Hohokam tribe, the city was first settled by U.S. Army Chaplain Winfield Scott in 1894 who say the area for its potential for agriculture. Rumor has it that Scott paid just $3.50 for 640 acres, which in today’s money would equate to approximately $92. Not a bad investment. Scott, along with his wife and brother George Winston Scott, were Scottsdale’s very first residents; though at the time the area was referred to as Orangedale due to the citrus groves the Scott brothers planted.
