When Is AC Replacement the Best Choice?

Knowing whether a simple professional repair will suffice, and when replacement becomes necessary, is very important as a homeowner. But how can you tell the difference? The decision is simple if you follow these basic guidelines laid out by our experts:

  • Your repair needs are too frequent. Needing HVAC repair every now and again is nothing unusual. But if your system needs professional repair every year or even more, it’s time to seek a replacement. Yearly repair is exceptionally costly, and a replacement will save you loads in the long run.
  • You are dissatisfied with the strength of your current system. As cooling systems age, they begin to lose some of the “oomph” you’re accustomed to. If you’re noticing weak cooling, ineffective cooling, or your system only blows warm air, contact McAllister for a replacement.
  • Energy costs begin to spike. Systems begin to lose efficiency (especially if they do not receive regular maintenance) within five years on average. This can result in energy costs that are anywhere from 10-50% more costly than they should be. If you’re seeing high energy costs, it’s time to replace.
  • Your current system is too old. As a rule of thumb, your system should be replaced every 10 to 15 years. Beyond that point, your energy costs and need for repairs will likely outweigh the benefits of hanging on to your current air conditioner.
  • You’re ready for an upgrade. Are you tired of subpar cooling quality in your home, or looking to move up to a stronger, more efficient system? Choosing a modern, higher-SEER air conditioning replacement for your home can be a big move in helping you get the comfort and quality you deserve.

As a general rule, any time is a good time to seek a replacement for your air conditioning system. HVAC technology advances rapidly every year, each model and style offering greater efficiency and performance than the last. With the top quality air conditioning products we offer, you’re virtually guaranteed greater efficiency, reduced energy costs, and an overall much more enjoyable New Jersey summer!

The Benefits of a New HVAC Replacement

Hoping to learn more about what you stand to gain from a new HVAC system in your home? You’ll be happy to find that our replacements offer a lot of advantages! When you get an AC replacement with McAllister, you can get:

  • Higher efficiency ratings. Ever wondered what a higher SEER really means? The SEER is essentially a gauge of how effectively your air conditioner converts fuel into cooling. Higher efficiency means higher comfort, and modern systems boast ratings double or higher than that of older systems.
  • Lower cooling costs. Not only will you get more comfort and power from your air conditioner, but it’ll also put fewer dents in your bank account! Higher efficiency ratings mean less energy consumed to get the job done, directly providing more savings to you on your monthly cooling costs.
  • Less trouble with breakdowns. If you find yourself wrestling with a system that needs repair services all the time, or provides shoddy service in the first place, a replacement will banish your frustrations faster than any other service.
  • 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 hurts our environment (and is currently being phased out completely!), so by replacing you help to keep our planet healthy and clean.

AC Replacement FAQs

Should I repair or replace my air conditioner?

In general, you want to replace your air conditioner when it either makes financial sense to do so—massive repairs on an older system, a system that requires frequent repairs, or outdated technology driving up your costs—or when you want a new unit for increased capacity, newer features, etc.

Would a heat pump be an upgrade?

In many ways, a heat pump can be considered a direct update to an equivalent air conditioner, especially if you install it as mini-splits with room-by-room controls for maximum comfort and efficiency. However, a heat pump is not as large an upgrade to your air conditioning efficiency as it is heating efficiency; it’s using largely the same technology to cool your home as your AC, even though it heats in a much more efficient way than your furnace.

How long will it take to replace my AC?

It depends on a number of factors, not the least of which is the significance of the problems your unit has. How easily accessible your unit, your ducts, and other components of your HVAC system are can also affect the time frame for repairs. We’ll do our best to keep our visit as brief as possible!

How can I keep my air conditioner from needing replacement?

Regular maintenance is crucial to keeping your air conditioner in good condition. This means following manufacturer-recommended home maintenance procedures, such as changing or cleaning filters monthly but also includes annual professional tune-ups to keep everything working as efficiently and reliably as possible. Regular professional servicing also ensures that if problems do arise, they’re identified and fixed while they’re still small, easy-to-repair problems.

What is an optimal temperature for my home?

There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question; even if we just look at averages, preferences for an average ideal temperature are different between men and women, people of different ages, people of different fitness levels, etc. Your thermostat may also be located such that it’s not helpful in determining the comfort level of specific rooms; people and electronics in a room can quickly raise its temperature above that of the area your thermostat is installed in. More important than the specific temperature of your home to energy efficiency is how well-fitted your AC is; if it’s running most of the time and keeping you comfortable instead of turning on and off constantly or falling short of your needs, it’s probably well-fitted.

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.
