Does Your Air Conditioning Need to be Replaced?
At some point in time, every air conditioner in Surprise will need to be replaced. This holds true for your air conditioning system as well. It may get to a time when the unit is old, excessively damaged, or not energy efficient enough to keep operating. It is important for homeowners to know when their unit needs to be replaced as opposed to being repaired.
5 Signs it’s Time for a New HVAC
How can you tell when it’s time to replace your old unit? Here are several warning signs that you should watch out for.
Are Your Energy Bills On the Rise?
If you realize that your electric bill is going through the roof during the summer, it may be that your A/C is not working as it should. In some cases, the unit doesn’t produce cool air and ends up blowing warm air into the home. The home, therefore, doesn’t get any cooler and the unit remains operating for hours on end. The end result? A spike in your electric bill. If your unit is not blowing cool air in Surprise, contact ACE Home Services to check on the unit. Your condenser coil may be damaged and need repair, or the entire unit may need to be replaced. The advantage of new A/C units is that they are much more energy efficient, and you can cut down significantly on your energy bills by making the investment.
Is Your Refrigerant Outdated?
An older system is likely to use a refrigerant (Freon) that is no longer permitted in new installations. If your system is low on coolant, it will operate very inefficiently and cannot have more coolant added easily.
How Often Do You Repair Your Air Conditioner?
Another sign of a dying A/C unit is the need for constant repairs. Are you finding yourself having to call an air conditioning contractor for service more often than you need to? It may be that the unit is starting to slowly break down. You may find that you replaced your fan today, and next week the filters need work. Rather than incurring costly repairs, invest in a new unit.
How’s the Air Quality & Your Overall Comfort?
If you’re not comfortable in your home in Surprise during the summer, the air conditioning might be the reason why. Most homeowners don’t realize that their A/C is the main reason behind indoor air quality. The unit blows cool air, reduces humidity, and prevents the growth of mold and fungi that develop when their air in the home is quite humid. If you find that you’re simply not comfortable in your home and the A/C is always on, consider purchasing a new unit.
Do You Have an Older Air Conditioner?
While air conditioning units are indeed durable, they do have a lifespan. Most units can operate for 10-20 years. If you begin to notice that your unit is requiring constant repairs after the 10-year mark, it may need to be replaced. In Surprise ACE Home Services can inspect your old unit and determine if it is better for you to repair or replace it.
The expert technicians of ACE Home Services know exactly what that constant heat and low humidity can do to central air conditioners and why you should consider a replacement for equipment only eight or 10 years old.
Signs of Air Conditioning Troubles
Some older Surprise homes may have had the same unit since the owner bought the property. Older units may be energy inefficient or outdated in technology. This is often a good reason to consider a new unit for your home. Below are some of the telltale signs that your air conditioner is on its way out. If you notice one or more of the following symptoms, please contact us for a professional assessment:
- System is short-cycling;
- Electrical bills are significantly higher than the same time last year;
- The air is sticky and you feel less comfortable;
- A bad smell or loud noise(s).
By having a certified HVAC technician inspect your air conditioner for these signs, you will have a definitive answer as to whether you should replace or repair. An honest company like ACE will always advise the best course of action for you and your family.
Weather Can & Does Play a Role in A/C Health
You don’t have to live in the Phoenix area for long to get a good taste of the weather. It’s hotter than just about any other inhabited place around the globe during the summers and in Fall, we get some of the worst monsoon storms in the Southwest. These two weather conditions combine to put unwanted stresses on your air conditioner; that eventually will shorten the unit’s lifespan and affect performance.
Fortunately, ACE’s technicians has a great deal of experience assessing weathered cooling systems; which means we know what to look for and what to recommend based on your home size, positioning of the outdoor unit, and how pollutants in the air can damage an air conditioner.

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 HVAC technicians know the J Manual inside and out as it’s our go-to source for calculating our customer’s cooling needs. The J Manual helps to determine the size of the unit needed to cool the size of the space inside the house. If calculations are off, the home may have dead zones that the cold air fails to reach. Some air conditioning companies will simply replace your air conditioner with a similarly sized one; however, we do it by the book to ensure many years without any A/C headaches.
2. Ventilation & Ductwork
Before ordering your new air conditioner we fully examine the air duct system to check the overall airflow throughout the home. If there is a lack of flow, this may be caused by ductwork issues or poor design and if this is the case, we will work to correct the problem. We want to make sure that the A/C unit we place in your home exceeds cooling expectations.
3. SEER Rating
The third main aspect of your new air conditioner system is to discuss SEER scores with you. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating and as the name suggests this number represents how efficiently your A/C unit will operate. Ratings go from 13 to 21 and the higher the number is, the more you will pay upfront but the more you will save in operating costs throughout the year.
