Signs You Need a New Air Conditioner
Unfortunately, our air conditioners are not built to last forever. If you find that your old system can no longer keep up with the comfort needs of your household, it might be time to consider a replacement.
Other factors to consider when deciding if you need to install a new system include:
- Age: A well-maintained air conditioner typically lasts between 10 and 15 years. If your system is over the 10-year mark and requires frequent repairs, it is on its way out the door.
- Efficiency: As air conditioners age, they become less energy-efficient. If your AC seems to be constantly running to cool your home and your energy bills are through the roof, your system is no longer efficient.
- Comfort: If certain rooms in your home feel like an icebox while others are uncomfortably warm, your AC isn’t up for evenly cooling your home. Even worse, if your entire home never seems cool enough, it’s time to consider a new system.
- Repairs: If your system has required multiple costly repairs in the last few years, it might be on its way out the door. The last thing you want to do is spend the same amount on repairs as it would cost to install a brand-new system.
At Blanton’s Air, Plumbing & Electric, our AC installation pros can help you determine the best course of action. We will carefully inspect each system component and inform you whether an AC repair will suffice or if you need to replace your system entirely.
Benefits of Upgrading Your AC System
If your air conditioning is having trouble keeping up with your cooling needs suddenly, you might want to brace yourself for the possibility of replacing it. We know this is the last thing homeowners want to hear. However, if your air conditioning is already 15 years or older, prone to breakdowns, and the reason why your energy bill is on the rise, replacing it is the more cost-effective solution. When you get a new AC system installed, you’ll experience benefits such as:
- Improved energy efficiency
- Ultimate comfort control
- Savings on your energy bill
- Quieter operation
- Environmentally friendly

Frequently Asked Questions
Does AC maintenance affect air quality?
It certainly can. When working properly, your air conditioner pulls a lot of humidity out of your home’s air and passes a large volume of air through a filter. Maintenance keeps it in top condition, controlling humidity and filtering as much air as possible.
Should I do any AC maintenance myself?
For most air conditioners in most homes, the only important maintenance a homeowner needs to do is change the filter every month or two. If your coils are prone to getting dirty and freezing over, cleaning them every few months might also be necessary — but this isn’t usually something you need to worry about.
