woman is hot and trying to turn down the temperature
August 22, 2023

With temperatures in Marietta and the surrounding areas nearing the triple digits, many homeowners in the area are finding it difficult to stay comfortable in their own homes. If you’re struggling to cool down in your home, your first instinct may be to crank the air conditioner for instant relief—but if your AC is having trouble keeping up, that may just end up in high energy bills and not much added comfort. 

As even warmer temperatures are expected before summer’s end, call the comfort specialists at Anchor Heating & Air Co. We can evaluate your cooling system and your home’s energy needs to help find a reliable and long-lasting solution to stay cool this summer—and for many more to come.

Signs It May Be Time for an AC Replacement

Air conditioners have a lifespan of about 15 years, however, they tend to start losing their efficiency after about 10 years. If your AC system is older and seeing any of the issues below, call the experienced team at Anchor to help you determine if it’s time for air conditioning repairs or replacement. 

Strange Noises

If your air conditioner recently started making noises it hasn’t made before—like a high pitched squealing, screeching, or buzzing—there could be underlying issues causing problems with your system’s key components and should be checked immediately by our professional team.

Warm Air Coming From Your Vents

Weak airflow is one of the earliest signs of a failing air conditioner, but it can also be a sign that your air conditioner is in drastic need of a maintenance visit. Regular maintenance is key to a long life for any HVAC system and without it, you can expect to run into problems more often. 

Your Energy Bills Are Going Up

An increase in your cooling costs—without an increase in your usage or a change in your rates—could be a sign that your air conditioner is on its way out. Since a failing air conditioner is more expensive to run, it’s important to get the issue checked out before a full system breakdown.

AC Repairs Are Becoming More Common

If you’ve had to repair your air conditioner two or more times in the past year, it may end up being more cost-effective to replace your system rather than wait it out. Sometimes, problems with an HVAC system have a snowball effect, and once the need for repairs starts, it’ll become more common. 

Beat the Heat with AC Replacement

Sometimes, getting a new air conditioner ends up being more cost-effective—and less stressful—than continuing to endure stuffy temperatures, costly repairs, and high cooling bills. As Trane Comfort Specialists, we exclusively offer installation of a wide selection of America’s most trusted HVAC brand, including high-efficiency air conditioners and heat pumps.
