Does it look like your air conditioner is about to kick the bucket, so to speak? Who knows why your unit may be acting up, but you shouldn’t blame yourself as this happens to even the best brands of air conditioners over time. Some just stop running as efficiently as they used to, others will struggle to keep the entire home cool, and then some just stop out of the blue one day. The good news is that, although hiring an air conditioner installation service in Batavia, IL can cost higher than other services, there is a surprising number of benefits that you can get after doing this. Your bills will go down, the new unit will use less energy, and there will be a much lesser chance of it breaking down as newer units get better all the time. However, when customers ask what the common signs of a busted AC are, this is what we tell them….
It’s More Than 10 to 15 Years Old
When your air conditioner gets this old, it starts to break down more and require more expensive repair services and parts. By now it’s gone through several grueling summers and winters, and the stress it’s undergone to keep your home comfortable has caught up with it. We’ll often see problems with the electrical connections, compressors, motors, and coils amongst other parts that all help the system dispel hot air and create cool air that’ll spread across your home. The labor and parts can add up after a serious breakdown or several smaller ones, and we recommend that you compare the costs of these repairs versus replacing your new unit when you’re ready to do so.
Your Home Has Become Very Uncomfortable
A broken or faulty air conditioner also means that your home is going to get a little dirtier and dustier, and if anyone in your home suffers from asthma or allergies this could aggravate their condition. Regular maintenance is one of the keys to preventing this situation from occurring, but as we said before sometimes the AC unit can’t handle the job anymore. Dust, lint, dirt, and other substances can accumulate in the filters and ductwork thus creating a stuffy atmosphere to breathe in. Headaches and dizziness could become more frequent if this happens, not to mention just being hotter and bothered without cool air.
The Efficiency Has Gone Way Down
So besides having trouble sleeping or relaxing on your couch after a hard day’s work, you may have received energy bills that are noticeably higher in price. Chances are that all the buildup of debris we mentioned before is making your air conditioning unit run harder than it has to in order to produce the same amount of cool air if it’s producing any at all. The more energy your AC needs, the less efficient it will be, and the higher your bills will get.
