Signs your AC or Heat Pump may need replaced
As your system ages repairs become more often and costly. Often times it makes more sense to replace it, especially
given the improvements in energy efficiency in the past decade.
Low SEER Rating
The higher the SEER rating on your air conditioner the more energy efficent it is. This can have significant effects
on your utility bills.
Air Conditioner Uses R22 Refrigerant
The federal government is phasing out R22 refrigerant as it is considered harmful to the environment. As a result, R22 has become
very expensive. Chances are if your system is low on refrigerant, there is a leak in the system. This may seem like a minor issue but it
is actually a major effort to determine the source of the leak and repair it.
No Cool Air
At some point, you may find that your air conditioning system simply isn’t doing its job.
Even at full blast, the air coming from your vents just isn’t as cold as it used to be, or isn’t cold at all.
This could be a sign that your system is in need of serious repair.
For instance, lack of cool air could mean that your systems compressor has failed.
It could also mean that your systems refrigerant levels are too low. When that time comes, you might have to replace the unit.
At times the trouble is not with the air conditioning unit, but with the thermostat itself.
One way to tell if your thermostat has a problem is if one part of your house is very cold while another part
remains at the same temperature.
Moisture where it shouldn't be
Moisture or leakage around or near your system can be an indication of problems.
When you see leaks from your air conditioning system, it can mainly be because of two reasons.
In the most serious cases, the leak could be refrigerant.
Refrigerant leaks can cause serious health risks to you and your family and need to be repaired at once.
You must call an air conditioning repair expert right away.
Water pools adjacent to your air conditioner might show that the drain tube, which disposes of the air conditioner condensation,
is either blocked or broken. This is not as serious of an issue, but should be tackled quickly to avoid less important problems like mold growth.
Squealing, grating, grinding sounds from your air conditioner might be a sign that you need a replacement unit.
These noises imply that something is wrong inside the unit. Failure to service the unit could result in a pricey breakdown.
A squealing noise means that the belt has slipped out of place.
It may also indicate that a metal component in your air conditioner requires more lubrication.
A grinding sound may mean that your motor’s bearings are broken.
Why may I need to replace my coil when replacing my A/C?
You will need a new evaporator coil to go with a new outdoor unit. The size is one element, effiency is another. Also, the new Freon operates at a significantly higher compression ratio, and without the proper match of the coil to the condensing unit you simply will not have a system that functions properly and efficiently.
