It cools your home and makes your family comfortable during the hot summer days of Atlanta. That’s right, your AC system is an important part of your home. It’s been there for you for a while, but you’ve noticed lately it’s just not performing like it used to. You start to ask yourself, is it time to replace your AC system? There are a few reasons to consider a replacement.
How old is your system?
An AC system’s lifespan averages between 10-15 years in Atlanta. Once systems get older they will likely stop running efficiently and you may see a spike in your utility bills. Replacing your system with a newer, energy-efficient system could ultimately save you a lot of time spent dealing with seasonal breakdowns.
Strange noises? Or more dust?
If your hearing strange noises from your AC system, just know it’s not normal. Excessive noises in the unit could mean problems with your coil or strange noises coming from the duct system could indicate incorrect sizing. If you’ve also noticed dust build up in your home even after cleaning, there could be some problems with your ductwork which in turn causes your system to run inefficiently.
Hot living room, freezing cold bedrooms?
Have you noticed that some rooms are warmer than others, or that the temperature you’ve set is inconsistent throughout your home? This could also be an indicator that your ductwork is not designed properly.
Utility bills increasing?
If your bills keep getting higher but you’re not using your AC any more than usual, or you’re having more and more repairs done, that’s a sign your system is becoming less and less efficient.
