Signs of a Serious AC Problem

An AC system that’s properly maintained and serviced should last at least 10-15 years and perhaps longer. But like any piece of equipment, time will take its toll and eventually you’ll need repairs and possibly replacement of your system.

Here are a few signs indicating you may need to begin thinking about AC replacement.

  • No cool air – You should start getting cool air within 30 seconds or so after your unit comes on. If not, you may have a minor problem like replacing an old dirty filter. On the other hand, the lack of cool air may indicate your unit has seen better days and needs to be replaced.
  • Frequent breakdowns and expensive repairs – If despite trying to prevent problems, your unit keeps breaking down and needing expensive repairs, it’s probably time to think about a replacement.
  • Strange sounds – Your unit should make only minimal sounds when operating properly. But if it’s chattering, squeaking, or grinding, it’s probably telling you its best days are behind it.
  • Strange odors – Your AC unit should never emit anything but clean, cool air. If you’re smelling strange odors – like a burning or smokey smell – that’s a sure sign of serious trouble with your unit.
  • Rising utility bills – If haven’t changed your thermostat’s setting but your utility bills keep climbing, that’s a pretty good indicator your old unit is struggling to keep you comfortable. And that means it’s probably time to think of a replacement.

And the higher the SEER rating, the more efficient the unit and the lower your energy costs should be.The U.S. Department of Energy has implemented what is called the SEER2 rating, effective January 1, 2023. This revised SEER rating requires that all new air conditioners in northern states like Illinois must have a SEER2 rating of at least 13.4 or higher.

    This SEER topic can become complex and confusing, and determining the AC unit that’s best for you depends on several factors. These include things like the outdoor summer climate, the size of your house, the number of family members, and more.
