Air conditioning replacement system in your Minneapolis, St. Paul residence is more economically viable than many less expensive repairs over an extended period of time. Air Conditioners need to be replaced around once every decade, so don’t waste money repairing a system that will soon need to be replaced. With over 34,000 completed HVAC projects, Minnesota Heating and Air Conditioning is the best company in the business, holding an accredited business rating of A+. Below are a number of factors that indicate a need for the replacement of your air conditioning unit.
Increased Energy Usage and Utility Costs
Air conditioners use up more energy as they age, just as most appliances do. If your utility bills keep rising even though you are using the system the same way over a long period of time your system could be wearing down. Leaky ducts and insulation gaps can increase these bills as well. Our Nate certified and licensed technicians can diagnose these issues and offer lasting, cost effective solutions to them.
The Inefficiency of Older Systems
If your air conditioner is ten years old or older it is time to replace your air conditioning system. Older systems are less energy efficient. Recent technological advances have made newer systems far more efficient than they once were. This means that with a new air conditioner it is certain that you will save money on utility costs over time. Older air conditioners use a refrigerant known as R-22, also known as Freon. This refrigerant is harmful to the ozone layer. The EPA has mandated that manufacturers must phase out this type of system refrigerant by 2020. The new refrigerant known as R-410A is far more environmentally friendly, but it cannot be used in systems built for use with R-22. Now is the ideal time to have your replacement system installed. As the old systems are phased out they will become more and more expensive to repair, as they will no longer be produced.
Uncomfortable Temperatures at Home
If you are uncomfortable in your home regularly due to irregular temperatures, insufficient cool air flow, or a loud air-conditioning system your unit needs replacement. These are all signs that your system is not operating properly. If it is of the wrong size, it may be too frequent in it’s on and off cycles. This can cause it to fail in the dehumidification of your house. A humid home feels stuffy and uncomfortable at temperature levels that are too low or too high.
