In our previous post, we discussed some factors to consider when it comes to replacing your air conditioning unit. Considering that two-thirds of all homes in the United States have air conditioners, it is important for every homeowner to invest in preventative air conditioning maintenance so their unit doesn't break when they need it the most!
So here we continue our list of factors that will signal to you that you are in the market for a new air conditioner.
Your boiler is older than 15-years-old
We have previously mentioned that it is time to replace your unit if your machine is over 10 years old. But, it is also important to look at the age of your boiler when thinking of replacing your machine. This is because after 15 years, your boiler stops working effectively.
You do not have a programmable thermostat
A programmable thermostat is one of the best things any homeowner can invest in simply because it ensures your unit isn't being used when you aren't home! Plus, you'll be able to program your unit to only reach a specific temperature which will keep your energy bills as low as possible. However, you will need to replace your entire machine in order to install the thermostat, so if you are interested, do not hesitate to contact your local air conditioning company as soon as possible to get started.
Your home feels too damp or dry
One of the most important components of your air conditioner is the fact that it regulates the humidity in your home. So, if you are feeling that your home feels damp and clammy, or exceptionally dry, this may be a sign you need more than just AC repair. Another clue to pay attention to is if your home feels different from room to room.
You notice standing water
There should be no water coming from your machine, at all. If there is, this means that there is a build up of condensation that needs to be amended. Most of the time when this happens, the AC unit has been damaged beyond repair.
