With regular service and maintenance, you can expect 15-20 years of life from an air conditioning unit from reputable manufacturers like Carrier. There are a variety of factors that can contribute to your AC either lasting longer or needing to be replaced early. The most important thing a homeowner can do to make sure their unit stands the test of time is to make sure that it’s serviced regularly. You wouldn’t expect your car to run well if you never changed its oil. The same can be said about your AC unit. We can help you stay ahead of that with our professional tune-ups!
Given that most AC units are located outside of the home, the environment you live in can play a factor in the longevity of your air conditioner as well. Heavy rain, high temperatures and freezing conditions are just a few of the conditions a unit can be exposed to during its lifetime — and all of these can cause premature wear and tear on a unit.
While some instances where a unit needs to be replaced can be clear, like in the case of complete failure, other situations can be vague. If you feel that your AC unit isn’t running properly or if your bills are unreasonably high, it might be time for you to consult with one of the professionals here at Specialized Mechanical for the most trustworthy and consistent Carlsbad AC installation services.
When thinking about AC replacement, consider the following:
While the situation may not always be cut and dry, there are some clear signs that your AC may need to be replaced and at the very least, needs to be serviced by a trained professional. Consider calling us if you’re experiencing any of the following with your air conditioning unit:
If you have an older AC unit, another thing to consider is the type of refrigerant your system uses. In 2020, the EPA banned the production of R-22 freon, which was a refrigerant commonly used in air conditioners. While HVAC companies will still have access to R22 freon to resupply older units until 2030, these units will have to be replaced as the supply runs out altogether. Since there will not be replacement R22 freon moving forward, this is a factor that you should consider when thinking about replacing your current unit.
Here at Specialized Mechanical, we understand that AC replacement can be one of the more stressful times for a property or homeowner, and we want to do everything in our power to make that process as stress-free as possible!
