Why Should I Replace My AC?
Posted on: July 14, 2014
If you live in Largo, AC services is not something you want to worry about this time of year. We’re already into the middle of summer, so it’s important your air conditioner is in top shape. Unfortunately, no matter how proactive you are, sometimes your unit just needs to be replaced. And this isn’t an action you want to put off until later, and is especially not something you can do yourself.
If you begin experiencing any of the following telltale signs of a failing air conditioner, you need to call in a professional as soon as you can.
Your Air Conditioner is Old
This one is fairly straight forward. If your air conditioning unit is more than 10 years old, it may be time to consider calling a Largo AC services company. Older air conditioners are less efficient, and continue to decline in efficiency as they age, causing your energy bills to go up while usage stays the same. If you get that old unit replaced, it could save you a lot of money in cooling and heating costs.
Inexplicably High Energy Bills
To extrapolate on my first point above, if your air conditioning bills are rising, seemingly out of nowhere, or are higher than you think they should be, it may be time to get the unit checked out. This is a sign that something might be broken or malfunctioning on the inside of the machine. Let a Largo professional take care of this, as these complicated AC services and replacements should only be performed by a certified and trained technician.
Strange Noises or Smells
If your unit is emitting a peculiar, or burning smell, or it rattles and creaks when it turns on, a replacement may be in your future. Air conditioners that are working properly do not let off unusual odors or sounds. If this is occurring with your home’s unit, consider calling in an expert to see what’s going on. Not only will a new appliance do a better job of cooling your home, it removes an unnecessary stress and will also annoy you less!
