Many factors determine whether it’s best to 修复 or replace your equipment. Reread each of the quiz questions below with our explanation of what the answers to your questions mean.
Age is certainly not the only factor that goes into assessing the condition of your air conditioner, 但它无疑是最大的. The CDC recommends replacing your air conditioner if it is more than 10 years old. 然而，适当和定期的维护, an air conditioner can last longer than that and still function smoothly. If your equipment is right around 10 years old and has been running smoothly, 我们为你感到高兴! 只要留意任何潜在故障的迹象就行了. R记住，设备越旧，效率越低. 如果你发现问题在恶化, you can schedule an appointment with one of our expert energy consultants to provide you with a free estimate for when you’re ready to replace your equipment.
The older and more worn out your cooling equipment gets, the more energy it uses. If you’ve noticed that your energy bills are going up without any other major changes in your home (remodeling, 家里有了新宝宝, 长期的客人, 等.), then the culprit may be your equipment nearing the end of its useable life. Repairs and 维护 can only help you regain some of your equipment’s efficiency – the best solution for this problem would be to spend that money on a new, 更有效的系统，而不是额外的能源成本!
Uneven temperatures between rooms usually go hand-in-hand with the age of your equipment. Newer AC equipment uses advanced multi-speed and variable speed technology to more evenly distribute air between rooms – a technology that just wasn’t available for older units. 如果你担心你的家, one of our expert energy consultants can help you find a solution that will keep you comfortable wherever you are in your home!
这个问题可能会导致这个列表上的其他一些问题, 比如不稳定的温度和高昂的能源费用. However this could be a sign of various issues with your equipment, and doesn’t necessarily mean a total equipment replacement is necessary. Start by having one of our expert service technicians look at your equipment – they will be able to tell you if the issue is due to a failing or damaged part, or if it’s a larger issue that would require more extensive 修复s.
因为空调开始失灵或失去效率, they aren’t able to control humidity levels as well as a new system. If you’ve noticed that the air in your home is too most and humid or even too dry, 你的设备可能开始出现故障. However, there are other correctable issues that could cause variations in humidity level. Start by having one of our expert technicians take a look at your equipment. 一个新的部分, 修复, or even the addition of an 室内空气质量 product may be able to correct this issue for you.
The best smell for your air conditioner to have is no smell at all. Common odors that are a sign of an issue are either burning or a musty scent. These could be caused by an electrical issue or even mold growth in your ducts from high humidity levels. Have a technician look at your equipment and 修复 any parts that may be causing the odor.
你的空调有一个重要的工作-保持你凉爽. 当它停止这样做时，那么很明显有问题了. The good news is that warm or room temperature air coming out of your vents could mean you just need a 修复. Have a technician start by checking your refrigerant and compressor before getting an estimate for a new unit.
The most common causes of weak airflow can be remedied with some 修复s to your equipment. 可能是室内风机损坏或风管堵塞. However if your unit is more than 10 years old and you’ve been experiencing other issues, this may be a sign of more serious problems that would require replacement.
No air conditioner is completely silent – they all make at least a little noise. Particularly loud, unusual, or new noises should be concerning and addressed immediately. Start by having a technician look at your equipment to diagnose what’s causing the noise. Your technician will be able to tell you if a 修复 will correct the problem or if you should get a free estimate from an energy consultant.
空调维修的费用很快就会增加. If you’ve had to call one of our technicians several times in the last couple of years, then you may be better off putting that 修复 money toward a new, 更高效的系统.
