As Canadians, we love to enjoy the warm weather outdoors while it’s here, but we’re also grateful to step out of the hot, sticky summer days and nights and into our cool, comfortable homes. But as the years go on, the effectiveness of your air conditioner begins to decrease and your system suddenly decides to stop working! But the signs of a failing air conditioner were there all along, so we’ve compiled a list of five signs that your air conditioner needs replacement, so you can take preventative measures before it actually stops working!
You and your family don’t have to live in a hot sticky home with a broken air conditioner. Check for these signs today:
- The air your unit is blowing isn’t cold enough anymore.
If your air conditioner is over 10 years old and isn’t making your home a nice, cool temperature anymore, it’s time to get it changed.
- Your home’s temperature is inconsistent while your air conditioner is running.
If your unit is unable to keep your home at a consistent cool temperature for as long as it’s running, it’s a sign that you may need to replace it.
- You are pouring money into repairs more often than you’d like to admit.
If you’ve noticed that something seems to break down in the unit frequently, you should stop! Repairs are costly and can add up to an amount that you’ll regret spending when you could have purchased a new unit instead!
- Your energy bills are increasing steadily.
No matter how much you’ve cleaned and maintained your air conditioner, the efficiency of your unit is low and the bills keep climbing. Purchasing a new unit will see a significant decrease in utility bills, and decrease your home’s impact on the environment, too!
- You’ve noticed noises coming from the unit.
If your air conditioner is over 10 years old and emitting loud sounds, it’s breaking down fast and will most likely need to be replaced very soon!
