Think of summer as a marathon test system of endurance for your air conditioning system. Like all marathon runners, there are only so many races to be completed before even one more is impossible.
Has that time come for your AC system? Maybe, maybe not. But if you’re noticing any of these warning signs, then it’s at least worth getting it checked out by an Evansville HVAC professional:
- Sudden surges in your electricity bill
- Hot and cold spots throughout your home
- Signs of leakage on or around your outdoor unit
- Noisy operation
- The need to lower the thermostat more than once to get just the right temperature
- The system runs non-stop, or at least more often than you remember
Another indication that your system might be nearing the end is its age. Most systems last an average of 10-15 years before even one more repair is no longer worth it. Not sure how old your system is? Go grab the serial number off your outside condensing unit or indoor heat exchanger and call the manufacturer to find out.
Ultimately, anything other than a complete system failure requires a judgment call as to replacing your system now, or hanging on to yours for maybe one more summer or so.
