When the mercury soars, keeping your home cool is your top priority. Unfortunately, even with proper routine maintenance, there are times when your AC just stops working, or at least stops working efficiently. But prior to your air conditioner completely breaking down, there are warning signs that you should be looking for.
Continue reading to learn a few reasons why you need a new air conditioner.
1. Needs Constant Repair
As time goes on, your air conditioner will need a few repairs along the way. Even with excellent upkeep, regular wear and tear does happen. However, if you have your AC repair service on speed dial because of the constant repairs, then it might be time to invest new air conditioner.
2. Expensive Utility Bills
During the summer, it’s not uncommon to see an increase in your monthly utility bills. However, if you’ve noticed a dramatic increase in the amount you pay a month, your AC may be the culprit. As AC units units age, their cooling power decreases, so repairing might not be the answer. To avoid fighting a losing battle, replace your AC.
3. Inconsistent Temperature
Once an air conditioner starts losing its efficiency, it won’t be able to circulate the cool air through the house, at least not as it used to. If you have a room or two that feels hotter than the others, it might be time to get an upgrade. On a side note, an air conditioner’s job is to moderate the amount of extra moisture in the house. So, if your house is constantly humid, then this is a clear sign you need a new AC unit.
