You can either replace or repair your HVAC system when it breaks down. However, it can be difficult to know if it’s time to replace your HVAC system. You might have been doing a good job of replacing your filter regularly and doing the necessary maintenance checks, however, there comes a time when the AC unit repair becomes ineffective. At this point, you need to replace the unit. We have highlighted the signs to look out for that will help you to know when to replace your air conditioner.

Frequent Air Conditioner Repairs
You need to replace your air conditioner when there is need for frequent air conditioner repairs. This is one of the most obvious signs that you need to be on the look-out for a new system. This becomes more serious when the repairs get more expensive. Although it may be more expensive to get a new air conditioner, you are actually saving money by getting rid of the frequent expensive repairs.

Inconsistencies in Temperature
This is another sign that it’s time to replace your air conditioner. If you have rooms in your house that cannot stay cool while there are other rooms that are releasing too much air, then you may have any of these problems; poor insulation, malfunctions in the air conditioner or faulty duct work.

Aging Air Conditioner
One of the major reasons for frequent repair of air conditioners is the fact that the AC is old. Most air conditioners are not meant to last for more than 10 years. Once the unit is older than this, it needs to be replaced as soon as possible. Doing this will help ensure increased energy efficiency (which leads to a decrease in electric bills), improved quality of air in the home and a decrease in carbon emissions. The cost incurred from any form of heating service when cold temperatures hit will also be reduced.

Are you still unsure of whether you need to replace your air conditioner? Take some time to think about how long it will take for a new air conditioner to pay for itself in terms of repairs as well as energy cost savings. We recommend you replace your air conditioner when repairing it no longer makes sense.

  1. My AC hasn’t been running like it should lately. It doesn’t get cold like it used to. I haven’t got it fixed yet and it has wasted me a lot of money! My last energy bill was pretty high! I should have someone come and replace it before I spend more on my next bill.

  4. I think that deep down, I’ve know that I need to get my AC system replaced for a few months now. I’ve just been putting it off, you know? I guess it makes sense, though, that an air conditioner that provides inconsistent temperatures would need to be replaced. This post helped me see reality! I’ll have to look into getting my system replaced soon. I’m actually excited; my house will be nice and cool again in no time!

  5. This is some great information, and I appreciate your point that inconsistency in temperature from room to room can be a sign you need a new air conditioner. My system is getting really old and outdated, and I’ve noticed that it’s not cooling some rooms as effectively as others. I’ll definitely look into having an entirely new system installed so I don’t have to worry about inefficiency or breakdowns. Thanks for the great post!

    1. You made a good point when you said that one of the indicators that your air conditioning is opt for replacement is when you’re consistently sending it off for repairs for different reasons. That reminded me of my AC unit that has been sitting here fore days after sending it off for repair twice within the same week. For some reason, the problem just keeps escalating that I couldn’t exactly pinpoint the main cause any longer. Anyhow, because of what you said, I have decided to replace my 7-year old AC unit by buying a new one. I want to be sure this time around by looking for an expert in AC installation as to which type of AC unit should work best in my room before purchasing and getting one installed.

  6. I had no idea that inconsistent temperature is a sign you needed to replace your unit! When I was growing up, the unit in our house would always cool the living room and not much else, so I assumed it was normal. I will have to start paying attention to that when we turn it on again. Thanks.

  7. Do you mind if I quote a few of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your weblog? My blog is in the very same niche as yours and my users would truly benefit from a lot of the information you present here. Please let me know if this alright with you. Thank you! dkdfcgfkbdgeedca

  9. Buying a new Air conditioner is not cheap but is a good idea when nothig else helps. I was planning to buy a new A/c but decided to have my old one checked. I hired Summit Heating and AC( http://www.summitheatingco.com) for the air conditioning service Denver co. They did a satisfying job. I think it’s always better to schedule for a maintenance service with a professional companybefore buying new A/c or heaters.

  11. My wife called me at work this morning because she was having a lot of trouble cooling down our house. In your article, you suggested that if you have rooms in your house that cannot stay cool while there are other rooms that are releasing too much air, then you may have any of these problems; poor insulation, malfunctions in the air conditioner or faulty duct work. Are there different kinds of duct work that might be more effective?

  12. My air conditioner did a terrible job this last summer. It seems like something might be wrong with it. I am going to look into getting it repaired before the warm seasons return. It is pretty old, so it makes sense that it wouldn’t still be running perfectly if, like you said, it is more than 10 years old.

  13. I didn’t realize that it is probably time to get a new AC unit if one room is really cold while another is really warm. I can see why this would be an easy warning sign to needing to get a new unit. My mom has been having a difficult time keeping the basement warm and the upstairs cooler at night. I’ll have to ask her about these signs.

  14. It’s good to know when I need to replace my AC system. It is pretty darn old, and the biggest problem is the inconsistent temperature throughout the home. My room is much colder than the living room, for example. It looks like I need to look at a new unit.

  15. Thanks for bringing to my attention that an air conditioner should be replaced after around ten years. I’ve had my system for almost fourteen now, and it’s starting to have some issues. Perhaps it would be a good idea to just replace it instead of putting money toward repairing it when its past its expected lifespan anyway.

  16. My wife and I just moved into our house about nine months ago. During the summer months we noticed that some of our rooms were really cold while others were really warm. I didn’t know that this was one of the signs that something could be wrong with the air duct or AC unit. I’ll have to talk to my wife about getting it fixed before the summer comes again.

  17. Like you said, I have been keeping up with the regular maintenance on my air conditioning unit and I was wondering when it is time to replace it with a new one. I didn’t know that ten years was a time where AC units started to burn out. I will check to see how long mine has been in my house. I will also start to pay more attention to fluctuations in temperature in my house. Thanks for the great information!

  18. That’s interesting that if there are rooms in your house that can’t stay cool while there’s other rooms that are releasing too much air, that’s a sign that you need to replace your AC unit. I’ve heard, too, that you need to pay attention to funny, burning smells coming from your AC unit. I’ll have to make sure that my AC unit isn’t showing any of these signs or else I’ll have to call an HVAC company to come fix it.

I’ll have to make sure that my AC unit isn’t showing any of these signs or else I’ll have to call an HVAC company to come fix it.

  21. I didn’t know that AC units were not meant to last more than 10 years. It makes sense that reading the instructions in the manual can help you make sure your unit is running well and you know when it needs to be replaced. I can see how anyone looking into this would want to consult with a professional and make sure they understand how to choose the best unit based on the size of their home.

  22. Yesterday afternoon during my 4-year-old’s son’s birthday party it started to get really hot and I wasn’t sure if our air conditioning was broken our not. It was nice to learn from the article that most air conditioners are not meant to last for more than 10 years. Now that I think about it we have had our air conditioner for about 12 years so we will be sure to get it replaced before our next big gathering!

  23. When I came home from work last night I tried to turn on the air conditioning and nothing happened. In your article, you stated that you need to replace your air conditioner when there is a need for frequent air conditioner repairs and this is one of the most obvious signs that you need to be on the look-out for a new system. I wonder if there are certain types of air conditioners that can’t be installed in specific types of homes.

  24. I like your point that frequent repairs may warrant the need for a new unit. I think another sign that you may want to replace your air conditioner is if your bills are inconsistent and high. This means your air conditioner is having problems working efficiently.

  25. This is very great information you have given really it helped me out to get the best option for it and solving my problem of the AC. Finally i replace my AC. So Thank You so much!

  26. This is very great information you have given really it helped me out to get the best option for it and solving my problem of the AC. Finally i replace my AC. So Thank You so much!

  27. It’s very much interesting blog! The content is very much useful for the people this helps out me to replace my Air Conditioner. Thank You for giving me the best information. Thank You!

  28. My AC has been having issues lately. It makes sense that I would want to have a professional take a look at it! They can help me decide if I should have it repaired or replaced, depending on how long they think it will last me.

  29. My brother recently moved into an older home. He has noticed the upstairs portion of his house never gets cooled by the air conditioner, so he’s looking for an A/C service that can help him determine if he should get a new unit. I didn’t realize temperature inconsistencies throughout the home can be an indicator that the central air system isn’t working properly or the duct work is faulty. I’ll be make sure my brother is aware of this information.

  30. Repair cost is definitely something to look at when choosing whether or not to replace an air conditioner. As the article points out frequent repairs to an air conditioner are no good. At some point it is just going to be cheaper to buy a brand new air conditioner rather than paying to have the old one fixed.

  31. Last year my air condition was having problems. However, I didn’t do anything about it since it was around the time it started getting cold. It’s nice to know that I’m better off replacing it since there were inconsistent temperatures through out my house.

  32. Getting a new AC unit sounds like a great idea. Ours is definitely older than 10 years, so it’s probably time to get a new one. This summer is supposed to be hot for us, so it definitely makes sense to get a new one soon.

  33. I appreciate you explaining the signs that an air conditioning unit may be breaking down, especially your tip to look for rooms that are cooling differently than other, similar rooms. The earlier you can identify these problems, the sooner you can get repairs done or replace the unit. I think having an effectively working unit will save you money in the long run by making better use of energy in the home.

  34. I really like what you mention about frequent AC repairs often require entire system replacement. It makes that an AC system that constantly requires repairs would cost more over time than just buying a new unit. I’ll have to keep this in mind for my house because it’s been having issues and since the system is so old, it could be time to replace the main parts.

  35. I can see why you would want to have your air conditioner replaced if it happens to be repaired very frequently. My wife and I have been planning on having our air conditioner replaced because the temperature has been fluctuating too greatly. I definitely think that we should find a professional that could set us up with one of the latest models.

  37. We have done a few repairs on our A.C. within the past year, so it might be time to get a new one. My husband was just telling me yesterday that it would be a better option, than having to constantly fix our current A.C. unit. I would just have to start searching for a company that would be able to come in and install a new one for us.

  38. I like your advice to look out for rooms that cannot seem to stay cool. I bet that becomes a big sign if your AC is older; like you said, a unit lasts about 10 years. My unit came with my home so I’ll have to ask a contractor how old they think it is since I’ve been having some heating trouble.

  39. Good to know that most AC units last for about ten years or so before they start to give out. My AC unit is around 11 years old so it might be time to look for a replacement unit. Like you say a new unit will help cool my home faster and will be a lot more energy efficient. Thanks for the awesome post.

  40. I have been noticing that rooms in my home fail to get cool while others do. I can’t think of any reason this would be happening and this is the first AC unit we have owned. I would love to be able to repair it instead of replacing right now.

  41. It makes sense that we need to get a new air conditioner. Our system seems to need repairs more often than others, so that probably means it’s getting old. We want to save money, so buying a nice new unit is probably best.

  42. These are some really good points. My aunt lives in my grandmother’s old house, so there are a lot of problems with the AC. One thing I didn’t think about was that some rooms might be leaking or not sealed properly. This is why the house is too hot in summer.

  43. My AC has been having a lot of problems lately. It makes sense that I would just want to get it repaired! I’d likely end up saving more money compared to if I just kept getting it repaired.

  44. Wow, it’s interesting to think that something as simple as having inconsistencies in a home’s temperature, like one room being too cold while the other is too hot, could mean that an air conditioner should be replaced. I’m curious to learn how this problem could be fixed, or how someone with a dual temperature system could be able to identify a problem like this.

  45. I like your point that frequent need for repairs can indicate AC problems. My air conditioner has been having some problems, and I keep having to have it fixed. Maybe it would be best to have a professional come and replace it instead.

  46. Our home was build about 18 years ago, and we have never had the AC replaced. After reading this, I can’t believe that it’s lasted this long! Now that I know they usually last 10 years.

  47. Our air conditioning unit has been acting out of sorts, and we don’t know what to do about it. It’s good to know that when it comes to it giving off inconsistent temperatures that we might want to consider having it replaced. This is something that we might want to talk to a professional about to see if this is what we need to do.

  48. "Inconsistencies in temperature"! That is exactly what’s been happening with our AC unit. I thought I might be imagining it buy my friend Nancy was sitting hear the vent the other day and commented that the air didn’t feel cold at all. Looks like it’s time for us to get a new air conditioner.

  49. My fiance and I are looking for an air conditioner maintenance nearby our new home. We have never had problems with it before and we liked that you provided a list of things indicating requirements to replace. Our AC is not that old so I think we will stick with repairs for now.

  50. It makes sense that differing temperatures means your air conditioner isn’t working. One time, our temperature would keep varying and I thought that it was because my son kept opening the doors. When it died a week later, I realized I should have seen that as a sign.

  51. I didn’t realize that having an inconsistent temperature in rooms could be a sign my AC was failing or faulty duct work. It makes sense that if a duct was installed wrong or insulation wasn’t properly placed the cool air would either not get into the room as well or not stay trapped as long. I will have to call a professional in my area and have them come check out my Ac system. Thank you for the information.

  52. I noticed that my AC has been breaking down a lot. Maybe I should get a professional to take a look at it to see if it would be better of replaced! That way I won’t have to spend as much money on repairs in the future.

  53. Luckily, the AC in question has not been needing frequent repair recently. This means that we will not be replacing anything but rather we will be making a search for a contractor. My fiance and I are relieved that all we need is an air condition repair.

  54. My air conditioning system has been having some problems. It makes sense that I would want to have a professional take a look at it for me! That way I don’t have to worry about it costing me too much.

  55. I like that you suggested replacing your air conditioner that’s more than 10 years old to make sure that you will be able to improve the quality of air in your home. Our air conditioning unit has been installed for almost 11 years now. My children are prone to allergies, so it’s essential for me to ensure a great quality of air in our house. I will make sure to contact a professional to get help in installing a new air conditioning unit soon. Thanks!

  56. I like that you talked about how the age of the AC unit is important to the effectiveness of it. My brother is looking to get an air conditioning replacement in his home. I’ll be sure to talk to him about hiring a professional that can properly assess the age and replace it properly.

  57. I didn’t know that when your home is inconsistent with the temperature you could need an AC repair. A few days ago my husband turned on our AC for the first time in months and we noticed it wasn’t working like it used to. Luckily we were prepared for this and are now doing some research on local contractors that can come out and do this repair.

  58. I want to make sure that I get my AC repaired properly. It makes sense that I would want to get a professional to repair it for me! That way they can look at it and see if it would be better to replace it.

  59. I like how you mentioned that if you need frequent repairs for your air conditioner it may be time to buy a new one. My mom recently had her AC serviced and they told her she would need a new system soon. I appreciate the information on the signs it’s time to replace an air conditioner.

  60. Thanks for pointing out that if your home has some rooms that won’t stay cool while others are too cold. My home is like that, and my current unit is also making a banging noise. It seems like it’s time for me to find someone who’ll be able to install a new air conditioner for me.

  61. Our AC is not working properly and it stopped working last night. It was discussed here that frequent air conditioner repairs may be a sign that the AC is not in a good condition. Moreover, it’s advisable to have professional contractors AC repair services.

  62. I really like that you mention inconsistencies in temperature. This is something that I have noticed really being an issue with my AC lately. It would be great if I could find a good company that could help me with getting that fixed.

  63. I’m always having to get my air conditioner fixed, and I’m not sure if it’s financially effective anymore. It makes sense that I would want to have it replaced! That way the new system won’t need to be replaced as much.

  64. I appreciate that you mentioned noticing inconsistencies in temperature from room to room. I have been seeing this more and more in our home. I didn’t realize that it was something that would require we replace our system to fix it. We’ll be sure to get on that when we can so that we don’t have to worry about it anymore.

  65. I appreciate it when you said that the AC needs to be replaced if there are parts of the house that are warm while there are parts that are too cold. That is exactly the case in our home, and my brother cannot stop complaining about it. He has even reached the point where he is sleeping in my room because his bedroom is too hot. I will ask my parents to consider getting the AC unit checked and replaced if needed.

  66. I appreciate it when you said that inconsistencies in the temperature and that if some parts of the house are cool and some are not, then it is time to replace the AC unit. My parents need to know about this because my brothers are always complaining about this. They even settled for sleeping with me in my bedroom because their own rooms are too hot. Hopefully, I can convince them to have the ten-year-old unit replaced.

  67. Thanks for elaborating on the different signs that it is time to have your air conditioner replaced. I had no idea that most air conditioners weren’t meant to last more than ten years. I would imagine that if you did regular maintenance from the beginning, it would help your AC to last longer than that.

  68. My AC in the apartment have been repaired several times and it finally stopped working last night. It was suggested here to have the AC replaced when it frequently needs repair because it gets more expensive. Having said that, it’s best to contact professional contractors when considering AC replacement.

  69. My brother is complaining about how his bedroom is a lot warmer as compared to the other rooms in the house. I checked and he was right, so I decided to look it up. You said that when one place or room in the house is a lot cooler or warmer than the others, the AC needs to be replaced since that means the air it is releasing is not consistent. I will talk to our parents about this since I also do not like him sleeping next to me.

  70. I do like that you said that you should consider replacing your AC if you have rooms in your house that cannot stay cool and rooms that releasing too much air because it’s an indication of malfunctions in the air conditioner. Our AC is fairly new, so I don’t think that it will be wise to replace it. Since I have been having issues with our AC that’s not cooling enough, I’ll make sure to find a professional that can repair it instead.

  71. I didn’t know that you had to replace your AC unit regardless of how well you take care of it. I have taken good care of my AC unit for the time I have had it, but it has started acting up. Maybe I will look into buying a new AC unit.

  72. I can agree with you when you said that the AC unit needs to be replaced if it needs frequent expensive repairs. The cost of the repairs outweighs the cost of actually buying a new one. That is why I think we need to get a professional to replace the unit we are using. It’s an old unit anyway.

  73. Thanks for pointing out that you should have your air conditioner looked at if the temperature throughout your home is not consistent. When I was watching TV in our family room last night, I was getting uncomfortably warm. But when I went into the kitchen for a drink, the air flow was strong and the temperature was comfortable. I’ll definitely follow your advice and have the air conditioner looked at by a professional!

  74. It sure was nice to know that it is time to call the professional if there are parts of the house that are hot while there are parts that are too cold. My brother and I recently switched rooms because my room got a lot colder while his room became a little warm. I didn’t realize immediately that something is wrong. Now I think I need to seek the assistance of an HVAC professional.

  75. It’s surprising that most AC units are not meant to last longer than ten years. My air conditioning is over fifteen years old and has been making some strange noises. I should definitely have a professional look at it, as they will better know what to do. What tips do you have for finding a good HVAC service in my area?

  76. You got my attention when you said that you should consider replacing your AC unit if it’s old because most AC units’ lifespan is less than 10 years. Our AC at home was installed 9 years ago, and we can’t deny that it’s no longer works efficiently because of its temperature inconsistencies. I will make sure to hire a professional that can install a new AC unit in our house as soon as possible.

  77. My sister just recently moved into a new home the other day. She is having some issues with her air conditioning and is thinking about getting a replacement. It makes sense that she would want to do this if the model is especially old.

  78. It hit me pretty hard when you said that I need to replace the AC unit if there are inconsistencies in the temperature because it is an obvious sign that it is malfunctioning. However, what if the AC unit is new, being only two years old? There is probably some other reason behind the inconsistencies in the temperature. I will call a professional to check and repair it if possible.

  79. Thank you for mentioning that there can be inconsistencies in temperature around your house if your unit it going out. I have been noticing more and more of this over the summer, but just thought it might be our vents or something. I’ll be sure to get someone to check this out so that we don’t have to worry about this getting worse further down the road.

  80. I agree that when your air conditioning repairs become more frequent than they should you should consider getting it replaced. I have been having more frequent repairs lately. Maybe it’s time I get a professional replacement.

  81. I agree that when your air conditioning repairs become more frequent than they should you should consider getting it replaced. I have been having more frequent repairs lately. Maybe it’s time I get a professional replacement.

  82. My air conditioning system has been needing to get repaired a lot more lately, and it’s costing me a lot. It makes sense that it might be more cost effective to get it replaced! It won’t need to be repaired as much if I get a new one, after all.

  83. My air conditioner has been having lots of problems. It is pretty old, too. Maybe it would be a good idea for me to have a professional replace it for me. That way I don’t have to worry about it breaking down even more.

  84. Thank you for talking about inconsistencies in temperature. My husband and I have noticed this around our house for the past few summers, but have just thought it might go away with time. We’ll be sure to get this replaced so that we can have a more efficient system.
