Upgrade Time: When to Replace Your Old AC

Deciding when to replace your air conditioner isn’t always straightforward. It’s about keeping your home comfortable, knowing the right time to say goodbye to your old unit, and saying hello to a new, efficient model. Since 2008, Landry Mechanical has been helping families like yours navigate these decisions with ease. Let’s explore what you need to know about AC replacement, and rest assured, we are here for your air conditioning service needs in Middlesex, MA.

Why Consider Replacing Your Old AC?

Determining the right time to upgrade your AC can significantly affect your comfort and household expenses. 

Here are the key signs indicating it might be time for a change:

  • Increased Energy Bills: If your energy bills have started to climb without a corresponding increase in usage, your AC unit’s efficiency might be dwindling.
  • Frequent Repairs: Are you on a first-name basis with an AC repair technician? If your unit needs constant fixes, it’s time to consider a replacement.
  • Inconsistent Temperatures: Experiencing hot spots or uneven cooling in your home? This inconsistency could signal that your AC is struggling to distribute air properly.
  • Age of the Unit: The average air conditioner lifespan is around 10-15 years. If yours is within or beyond this range, it’s likely time for an upgrade.
  • Noise Levels: An increase in noise or strange sounds coming from your unit can indicate mechanical issues or that the AC is reaching the end of its operational life.
  • R-22 Freon Usage: If your AC unit uses R-22 Freon, these models are being phased out due to their environmental impact. Upgrading to a newer, more eco-friendly model will become a necessity, not just a choice.

Switching to a new more energy-efficient AC not only alleviates these issues but can also save you money on energy bills in the long run.
