When to Repair or Replace Your Air Conditioner

With annual air conditioning maintenance, most cooling systems last around 15-20 years. We recommend replacing yours when repairs are more than half the cost of a new one. Here are a few problems to look out for:

Repeated service calls: If you’re constantly scheduling air conditioning repair, those costs can quickly add up. You don’t want to end up spending as much on repairs as what a new air conditioner would cost.

Unexpected spike in energy use: A sudden increase in your monthly bill could signal a problem with your air conditioner, especially if you haven’t changed thermostat settings, or the outdoor temperature has remained consistent.

Short cycling: This annoying problem starts and stops your air conditioner repeatedly. It can be caused by a dirty air filter, lack of maintenance or other issues. And it increases wear and tear on your air conditioner, potentially shortening its life span.

Lack of cool air: If your air conditioner is producing warm air or struggling to keep up, you could be dealing with a dirty filter or a refrigerant leak. Depending on the type of refrigerant your air conditioner uses, a refrigerant leak can be very expensive to fix.

What to Look for in a New Air Conditioner

At Ditter, our professionals make it an easy, stress-free experience to get a new air conditioner. Here are a few things to consider when it’s time to replace yours.

High energy efficiency and ENERGY STAR®: Since air conditioners last for many years with proper maintenance, investing in high-efficiency equipment now saves more money in the long run. You’ll want to look for air conditioners with a high seasonal energy-efficiency ratio or SEER rating. Models that meet certain efficiency standards will be given an ENERGY STAR® label and may be eligible for additional rebates.

Appropriate size: An air conditioner should be correctly sized for your home. This means it’s powerful enough to provide efficient cooling without being too powerful. If the AC system is sized too large, you could actually make your HVAC system less effective. For example, larger air conditioners can trick the thermostat into thinking the entire house has reached the desired temperature, switching off before far-off rooms have a chance to cool down.
