The hot, humid summers of Auburndale, Florida, require a heating, ventilation and air conditioning system that can deliver comfort without fail. If your air conditioner can’t handle the heat, it may be time to evaluate your system.
Signs It’s Time to Replace the Air Conditioner
If you answer yes to several of the questions below, it may be time to replace the AC unit:
- Is your AC more than 10 years old?
- Does the unit require frequent repairs?
- Are your utility bills high?
- Are some rooms in your house too hot or too cold?
- Is it difficult to control humidity?
- Does your AC struggle to keep up with demand?
There are many reasons that an air conditioner may not operate efficiently. An HVAC contractor can help you evaluate whether these problems can be rectified or if it’s time to invest in a new system.
Age and Efficiency
If your air conditioner is more than 10 years old, you may have high energy bills. Older units may not work as efficiently as newer equipment. Newer, energy-efficient units such as Trane variable speed systems have SEER values of up to 22, which greatly exceed the recommended minimum SEER value of 14 for Florida.
A properly installed air conditioner with an Energy Star label can save between 20 and 40 percent on cooling bills. Newer units are better at maintaining a constant temperature. They are also more efficient at controlling humidity. Maintaining proper humidity contributes to comfort.
