Is it Time for a New Air Conditioner Installation

air conditioner installation torontoAs they say “time flies” and while it might seem light years away right now, it won’t be too long before summer is upon us. In Toronto , Scarborough and Pickering that can mean outdoor temperatures of up to 35 °C, making air conditioning an absolute must if the temperature inside your home is going to remain bearable. If you do already have air conditioning, you really should have it checked over once a year by a professional, as the last thing you would want to happen is find that it doesn’t actually work once the sun starts to shine. This brings up another question that the AirPlus team receives numerous times each year; how do you determine the right time to have your current air conditioning system replaced with a new air conditioner installation? While the answer to this question isn’t always straightforward, there are a number of signs that you should look out for, which we are going to outline during this article.

Signs that Your Home Requires a New Air Conditioner Installation

Air conditioning units will sometimes breakdown, even if the proper maintenance is carried out, but that doesn’t mean your system automatically needs to be replaced. Sometimes air conditioner repair is the better option, but if any of the following points sound familiar, you would probably be wise to opt for a new air conditioner installation.

  • Your System Experiences Frequent Breakdowns – When we said that air conditioning units will sometimes breakdown, we were referring to every few years, not every few weeks. If you find yourself constantly having to pick up the phone and call your HVAC company for assistance, you should strongly consider a new air conditioner installation. Frequent breakdowns indicate that the unit is simply no longer capable of doing the job it’s designed to do. Additionally, not only does a replacement make more practical sense, but it typically makes more financial sense too since the cost of regular repair calls can really start to add up.
  • Your Air Conditioner is Just Plain Old! – Sometimes the most simple observations are the most telling. When did you have your current air conditioning system installed? The majority of units are not designed to be able to maintain a high level of performance for longer than 10 years if they are used frequently. If your air conditioner is older than this it is well worth considering investing in a new air conditioner installation. Not only will this ensure that you aren’t constantly spending money on repair services, but it will also almost certainly increase the operating efficiency of your air conditioner (newer models are far superior in terms of energy efficiency), resulting in lower energy bills.
  • Different Temperatures? – If you have a central air conditioning unit it should keep each room in your home at a constant temperature when functioning correctly. In other words, each room should be roughly the same temperature (there are factors that can influence this slightly). If some of the rooms in your home are far warmer than others when your air conditioning unit is running, your system needs professionally assessing and potentially replacing with a new air conditioner installation.
  • Inefficient When Operating – Along with heating systems, air conditioning systems are one of the biggest “drains” on energy in the average household in Toronto, Scarborough and Pickering, so if the system is not operating as efficiently as it possibly can, it can have a considerable impact on your finances. While regular maintenance and a professional service can help to maintain a high level of efficiency, there comes a point when even this won’t help. Telltale signs of an inefficient air conditioning system include higher-than-normal energy bills, a system that takes much longer to cool you home than it used to, and a system that’s no longer able to cool your home to the same level as it once could.
