When to Replace an Air Conditioner Unit or System

Simple, professional repairs will occasionally suffice in getting an AC system back up and running, but when replacement becomes necessary, you need to be able to spot the signs of a failing system. Some things that indicate your AC needs replacing include:

  • Frequent Repairs – If an AC system requires repairs every year or more, it is time to consider replacing the system.
  • Poor Cooling Efficiency – As cooling systems age, they begin to lose power. If a system is cooling ineffectively, or is blowing warm air, it likely needs to be replaced.
  • Energy Costs Are Going Up – When systems begin to lose efficiency, it can result in increased energy costs. If you are seeing high energy bills, it is probably time to replace your AC system or unit.
  • Age – As a rule of thumb, an AC system should be replaced every ten to fifteen years. Beyond that point, energy costs and repairs will likely outweigh the benefits of hanging on to your current air conditioner.

As a general rule, any time is a good time to seek a replacement for your air conditioning system. This is because HVAC technology advances rapidly each year, always offering greater efficiency and performance that outshines previous models. With the top quality air conditioning products offered at McAllister, our customers are virtually guaranteed greater efficiency, reduced energy costs, and better overall comfort.

Why Install a Carrier Air Conditioner?

Since then, Carrier has been perfecting the design to provide homeowners with reliable comfort throughout the hottest months of the year. Our Carrier air conditioning products and cooling systems are available in energy efficient models and compact models for tighter spaces.

The Benefits of Replacing Your HVAC System

At McAllister, our replacements offer a lot of advantages, from lower energy bills to superior comfort. Our products also offer higher efficiency ratings and green benefits. New, high-efficiency cooling systems make use of a refrigerant called R-410a, a new replacement for R-22. R-22 is out of date and harms our environment (and is currently being phased out completely).

Most Frequently Asked Questions

What is the SEER rating?

The SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) is how the efficiency of your heating and cooling equipment is measured. The SEER is the amount of cooling your system will deliver per dollar spent on electricity, as compared to other systems. For example, a 3-ton unit may have a SEER efficiency rating of 13, 14, or 15. The higher the SEER the more efficient the system will be. The SEER rating of any given unit can range anywhere from 13 to 21.

Each split system cooling unit has a nominal SEER rating. This rating can be increased with the upgrade of the same series indoor unit. The SEER rating of a system is derived based on the combination of equipment installed in the home. The outdoor equipment (heat pump or air conditioner), as well as the indoor equipment (evaporator coil and furnace, or air handler), play a vital role in the total rating.

Your heating and cooling systems work incredibly hard to perform their functions for your home everyday. The constant stopping, starting and continual operation can wear down any machine if the proper care and maintenance is delayed. However, by performing regular maintenance, you can maximize the lifecycle of your heating or cooling unit and guard against many common equipment failures. Preventive maintenance inspections performed on a regular basis can uncover leaks, rust, rot, soot, frayed wires and corroded electrical contacts that the naked eye may not notice. You should have maintenance done on your system regularly to ensure maximum efficiency and allow prevent possible problems that may occur in the near future.

To keep your equipment running efficiently and maximize the useful life of your system all equipment needs to have an annual tune-up. At least once a year heat pumps and air conditioners require a professional tune-up. Inspections on boiler and furnace systems should include ductwork, pipes, dampers, valves, the chimney, registers, radiators, pumps, blowers, fuel lines, the gas meter, oil tank and every part of the actual furnace and boiler. Meanwhile, heat pump and air conditioning unit inspections should also include inspections of the fan, compressor, indoor coils, outdoor coils, line kits and refrigerant lines.

Since they are electronic, programmable thermostats are more accurate and efficient than thermostats that contain mercury. With programmable thermostats you can control the temperature in your home at different times of day without ever touching your thermostat. Because everything is automatic, you will never forget to change the setting on your own. A WiFi enabled thermostat allows you to monitor and adjust your home’s heating and cooling system remotely, helping you reduce your heating and cooling costs.

Standard filters work to keep your system and its ductwork clean, but they don’t really improve indoor air quality. To do that you need a media filter. The media filter rests between the main return duct and the blower cabinet and will improve dust and particle removal by seven times that of a standard filter. However, upgrading to a pleated media filter will remove everything from insecticide dust to airborne viruses from the filtered air. Always choose a filter that matches your blower’s capacity. For optimum efficiency and filtration, McAllister… The Service Co. recommends that you replace your disposable filters at least once a month. If you have washable filters, they should be cleaned once a month.
