Top Indicators You Need to Consider an AC Replacement in the Near Future

Some signs that your HVAC system is in need of replacement are very obvious while others can be more subtle. Complete failure of your HVAC unit is an obvious reason for a new HVAC system. However, some signs like increased utility bills, poor indoor air quality, and continued repairs that are mounting to the amount that is close to a new system are more subtle and can go unnoticed by some homeowners. It is best to never ignore these signs since it could mean that your HVAC system is heading toward complete failure which can be dangerous if it happens during the intense heat of a Texas summer. Here are signs that you may need to consider an AC replacement in the near future:

Blowing Warm Air: Warm air coming from the AC vent is never fun to feel. If it takes more than 1-2 minutes for the air to turn cool when your AC system cycles on, it is time to call Northwind AC.

Low/Poor Airflow: If you feel less than the normal amount of cool air coming from your vent, you have an air distribution issue.

System Frequently Cycles: Short cycling or frequent cycling means that your AC system is having difficulty regulating the temperature in your home.

Higher Than Normal Humidity: The humidity level in your home has a significant role in the effectiveness of your HVAC system. Humidity levels inside that are higher than 50% may cause your older AC unit to overwork to compensate.

Water Leaks: A disruption in your HVAC system’s normal cooling cycle can result in water leaks. Some leaks are very recognizable. Depending on the location and the area around the installation of your current HVAC system, water leaks can be hidden. Hidden water leaks can result in mold, and damage to ceilings and other structures.

Bad Odors: Unusual smells coming from your air conditioner is an indication that bacteria and other microbes are present. As time goes on, the presence of contaminants in your indoor air can lead to serious respiratory issues.

Loud Noises: Unusual loud noises coming from your HVAC system are not a good thing. These noises can be an early warning for an upcoming complete failure of your HVAC system.

Increased Energy Bills: Many times a sudden or significant increase in energy costs could indicate that your HVAC system is overworked. If this happens to you, it may be time to consider an AC replacement.

Frequent Repairs: Just like an automobile, the more frequently you need repair, the more likely your car is nearing its final days. Repairs can mount up and soon could be equivalent to a new HVAC system.

HVAC System Size: Our AC replacement team will inspect your home and take into consideration the square footage of your home, the size and number of rooms, and the number of occupants to choose the right sized HVAC system for your needs.

Thermostat: Depending on your current thermostat and its capabilities, it may be time to consider upgrading your current thermostat to a smart thermostat.

Ductwork: During an AC replacement, it is a great time to inspect your ductwork to make sure that its configuration is best for your home to provide optimal effectiveness.

AC Unit Type and Brand: Upon inspection, our installation technicians will discuss the differences between ductless and central air units along with the brand of the system to recommend the right option for your home and lifestyle.
