3 Signs Your Air Conditioner Is On Its Last Leg

Regular maintenance helps ensure the long-term efficiency and performance of your air conditioning system. However, it will eventually get so old, outmoded or damaged that you’ll need to replace it. Read on as we discuss the various signs your air conditioning unit is nearing the end of its lifespan.

Frequent repairs. A well-maintained AC system requires only minimal repairs, which can be typically performed during  routine yearly servicing. If you’ve been calling your technician more frequently to fix problems, the unit could be nearing the end of its serviceable life. Rather than deal with persistent repair costs, consider having it replaced with a new one. Doing so will allow you to save in the long run.

Constant cycling. A cycle is a period from the time your air conditioner turns on to the time it shuts off automatically, which occurs when your room reaches the desired temperature you set on your thermostat. If cycling happens frequently but you don’t feel as comfortable as before, it might be time for a replacement. Get in touch with a local heating and air conditioning contractor to diagnose the issue and determine if you need to upgrade your HVAC system.

Old age. An old AC system not only sees constant repairs but also becomes less efficient at cooling your indoor living spaces. Generally, the lifespan of the cooling unit depends on the model and could be substantially different depending on when you bought and installed it. HVAC systems manufactured a decade or so ago have much shorter lifespans than their modern counterparts.
