When To Replace Your AC

After years of operation, your air conditioner’s performance will start to deteriorate. Its energy efficiency will worsen, and the risk of needing repairs will be higher, so replacing it can actually save you money in the long run.

Here are some signs that it may be time to replace your air conditioner:

  • Your AC is more than 10 to 15 years old
  • It requires frequent and costly repairs
  • Your energy bills are increasing
  • Your AC is not cooling your home as effectively as it used to
  • Your home’s humidity levels are higher than normal
  • Your AC is making unusual noises or emitting strange odors
  • The airflow from your AC is weak or inconsistent

If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to call Hutton. A new AC system installed by our team can offer improved energy efficiency, lower utility bills, and better indoor comfort.

AC Installation FAQs

Should I repair my air conditioner instead of replacing it?

Deciding whether to repair or replace an AC can be a stressful decision. To make it easier, try using the $5,000 rule. Multiply the cost of your quoted AC repairs by however many years old your system is. If the end result is higher than $5,000, you should replace your unit.

While this is a helpful tool to make your decision, other factors may also impact whether repair or replacement is the better option. At Hutton, our certified HVAC technicians can help explain your options.

What type of air conditioner should I have installed?

The type of cooling system you should install depends on what you’re looking for. Central air conditioning provides reliable performance, while heat pumps offer both heating and cooling power. To control temperatures on a room-by-room basis, you should go with ductless mini-splits. If you need help making this decision, call our expert AC installers for more information.

How long do air conditioners last?

On average, a well-maintained air conditioner can last around 10 to 15 years, with some high-quality units even lasting up to 20 years. Air conditioners that haven’t been regularly maintained will become less effective and experience more wear and tear, so they will not last as long.
