Summer is just around the corner—is your AC ready to handle the ATL heat? At Anchor, we want your home to be comfortable all year round. While it’s easy to tell you have an issue if your air conditioner won’t turn on, here are other signs that your air conditioner needs to be replaced before summer really kicks in.
High Energy Bills
Are you running your air conditioner the same amount of time, but seeing an increase in your electricity costs? An increase of 10% or more could mean your AC unit is going out.
Frequent and Expensive Repairs
If your air conditioning unit has needed more recent repairs over the past few years—and those repairs are close to 25% of the cost of a new unit—it may be more cost-effective to replace it.
Excess Moisture and Leaks
While all air conditioners will create some moisture, a buildup of moisture on your AC system or leaks are always a cause for concern.
Your AC Unit is Old
The lifespan of an air conditioner can vary by the brand and model. However, most air conditioners tend to lose their efficiency after about 10 years.
If your AC system is too big or small for your home’s needs, it will not work properly and use more energy than it should. If your air conditioner is short cycling, meaning turning off and on too rapidly, it might be the wrong size.
