Making the decision to replace an air conditioning system or to continue on making repairs can be challenging. 

Nevertheless, with help from our skilled technicians at Kettering-Oakwood Heating & Air, the following is a list you can use with warning signs it might be time to replace your home cooling unit.

Age of Air Conditioner

Like any other technology, the older your HVAC equipment gets the more prone it becomes to problems. Air conditioning units especially struggle with energy efficiency and air flow when they get older. Even when properly maintained, air conditioners can start struggling when they hit that average life expectancy of a decade. This number varies. But ten years is fairly standard.

Frequent Repairs

Does it seem like you’re calling HVAC professionals like our team here at Kettering-Oakwood Heating & Air a little more often than normal for repairs? When the cost for running the unit and making repairs starts to get too high, it is worth investing in a newer system than to continuously invest in your older AC that will start to give out pretty soon. A/C repair costs can really add up in a hurry and investing in a newer system might help you more in the long run.

Warmer or Decrease in Airflow

As the seasons pass over time, have you come to realize that your air conditioner doesn’t cool your home like it used to? Warmer air being distributed and/or weaker airflow could be a sign it’s time to upgrade or replace, especially if you’re feeling uncomfortable at home. Some easy fixes include cleaning or replacing your air filters or cleaning out your registers and air vents. However, if you are still having these issues after doing all that, it might be time to have a qualified technician take a look at your home cooling equipment.
