When to Buy a New Air Conditioner
You know it’s time to buy or rent a new air conditioner when your current one starts blowing hot air all the time. But it isn’t always that simple. Sometimes, signs that it’s time to get a new one are a bit more subtle. So, here are a few things to look for when determining if you need a new air conditioner unit.
Strange Sounds and Smells
Most air conditioners are designed to have minimal to no noise levels. So, if you hear clanking, grinding, chattering, or any other new strange noise coming from your air conditioning, it’s time to start thinking of getting a new one. Additionally, air conditioners are designed to emit clean, fresh air. But if you smell a burning smell or something out of the ordinary when your unit kicks on, it’s worth checking out a new air conditioner.
Weak Air Flow
If you are cranking your A/C unit to full blast, but the airflow still feels weak, you might have a problem. As air conditioner units age, there is more potential for parts of it to get clogged or stop working, which results in reduced functionality. You may notice a lack of airpower when you hold your hand over the vent or it takes the unit much longer to cool down the room. If this sounds familiar, it’s time to replace your unit.
Higher Energy Bills
When an air conditioner is not functioning correctly, it can take a lot more energy to run. When this happens, you may notice a spike in your energy bill. If this is happening and you aren’t leaving your lights on 24/7, it might be your air conditioner.
