When you have an air conditioning unit that is either too old or too broken down to be repaired, you need a replacement as fast as possible. Damaged AC units always break down on the hottest day of the year — and it’s not just because of your own bad luck! Address your AC replacement before you’re in the heat wave!
The fact of the matter is that, in order to perform its task of controlling your home’s temperature, your AC is using its two primary pieces at varying levels of intensity. Those pieces are the:
- Evaporator- compresses refrigerant (Freon) to level where it absorbs heat from the space that is being cooled.
- Condenser- transfers that heat to the air and forces it to the exterior area.
The hotter a day it is, the harder those two coils are working — and the more likely it is that one or both of them will, if in disrepair, stop functioning properly.
But how do you know if your AC unit is on the verge of total collapse? Look for the following signs:
- Water leaking from or ice forming on the device
- Your AC Unit is more than ten years old
- Odd noises or Odors
- Limited Airflow coming from the vent
If one or several of these problems is happening to your particular home’s AC, consider not getting one or several repairs but, rather, saving your money and time by having a replacement done instead.
