Why Fall Is A Great Time To Replace Your AC
While you look forward to the fall season with cooler temperatures, don't forget that there is still plenty of warm weather left. With at least another month of hot temperatures likely, you will want your A/C to continue keeping your home cool.
You may think it doesn't make sense to replace your air conditioner so late in the season when we are preparing to turn on our furnaces. But, contrary to that, there are numerous reasons to replace your A/C now, and we will explain those reasons below.
Focus On Humidity
Our team says it all the time - it's not the heat, it's the HUMIDITY. With the hot temperatures we are still experiencing, the humidity is an ongoing battle. An air conditioner is like a big dehumidifier for the home; how well does your old ac work to remove humidity? Trane air conditioners use state-of-the-art technology to move air slower over the evaporator coil to pull out the moisture in your home. As a result of a new cooling system, you can enjoy better home comfort now, not later.
Consider Current & Past A/C Issues
You may be experiencing new issues that just popped up or issues that have been happening all summer long. Some of the problems are a scream for A/C replacement. These telltale signs to replace your old air conditioner include:
- Hot & Cold Spots: If your current cooling system produces nothing but inconsistent temperatures throughout your home, it's time to make a change. A new air conditioner should be able to adequately keep up with the desired temperatures and create even temperatures throughout the home.
- Unusal Noises: You will always hear a little noise from your A/C, but it should never screech, bang, or grind. If it sounds like the air conditioner is not operating normally, it might be time to replace.
- Frozen Outdoor Unit: Various reasons can cause ice buildup on the outdoor unit. Whatever the reason, it means something is wrong with the A/C and could also point to replacement.
HVAC Efficiency and Utility Savings
Replacing your HVAC system can save your wallet and how your home feels. You will want to pay attention to the age of your HVAC system. If it is 15+ years old, then you might be experiencing significantly less efficiency. As a result, your cooling/heating system will run harder to maintain your desired indoor temperature. Efficiency issues can lead to higher energy usage and utility costs. With the way that utility prices have risen in the last few months, a new HVAC system will save you money in the long run.
