Signs Your Air Conditioner Is Going Bad
The last thing you want when summer arrives is to turn on your AC unit only to have it blow out hot air, but most air conditioners give plenty of warning signs they’re about to give up, and here are a few to watch out for.
- Squealing or Grinding Sounds
- Lukewarm or Hot Air
- Refrigerant Leaks

If you notice any of these signs, you may need a tune up or you may need a new air conditioning installation. Call a professional AC replacement company and ask them for their help.
Is your home extra humid during the summer? Consider installing a whole-home dehumidifier which connects directly to your air conditioner.
Repairing vs. Replacing Your AC Unit
So, your AC unit is on the fritz again and you don’t want to invest in putting in a whole new unit. There are advantages to repairing an old unit, but here are a few reasons why you might want to replace it.
- Age - Older air conditioners are inefficient. A newer unit will save you money on your energy bills.
- Frequency of Repairs - If you’re repairing your AC unit more and more, you’re better off spending that money towards a new unit that will be more reliable.
- Repair vs. Replacement Ratio - If the cost of the repair is 50% or more than the price of a new unit, you’re better off getting a new unit.
