AC Installation FAQs

What is involved in replacing an old cooling and heating system?

We'll inspect several key areas—including ductwork, insulation, refrigerant piping, electrical service, wiring, thermostat, condensate piping, and more—and determine what is salvageable and what is not.

When is the time to replace an A/C system versus repairing it?

The average lifespan for a high-quality cooling and heating system is 8 to 12 years, depending on the amount of use, the climate in which it operates, and whether or not the system received regular preventive maintenance.

The criteria for determining repair or replacement are how much of a repair bill you're faced with today; how long can you expect before other problems arise based on the age and condition of your system; the cost of a replacement system; and what advances in technology and efficiency have manufacturers made since the installation of your current unit. Today's systems are as much as 60 percent more efficient than those manufactured just 10 years ago. The savings in efficiency alone might be enough of a return on your investment to replace now instead of enduring another season of costly repairs.

There's, of course, no absolute right answer, but the experts at John C. Cassidy can help you make an educated, informed decision.

Why isn't a bigger air conditioner better for cooling?

An air conditioner that is too large for the area it is meant to cool performs less efficiently and effectively than a smaller, properly-sized unit because the oversized unit will tend to run more often for shorter lengths of time, which is less effective at removing humidity. Longer run times allow the system to maintain a more constant room temperature.

Signs You Might Need A New Home Air Conditioner

Knowing when to replace your air conditioner involves considering a number of factors like the age of the system, the frequency of repairs, and its overall performance. If you're experiencing multiple issues or your system is more than 10-15 years old, it might be time for replacement. Here are some additional signs to look out for:

No Cooling from Air Conditioner

If your air conditioner is not producing any cool air, it may indicate a serious problem. This could be due to a malfunctioning compressor, low refrigerant levels, or a faulty thermostat. In some cases, the cost of investing in a new, more efficient unit may outweigh the benefits of repairing an older system.

Uneven Cooling from Air Conditioner

Uneven cooling throughout your home can be a sign that it's time to replace your air conditioner. This issue may result from problems with the distribution of air, ductwork issues, or an inefficient system struggling to maintain a consistent temperature. Upgrading to a newer, more advanced model can help address these issues and provide more even cooling.

Loud Noises from Air Conditioner:

Unusual and loud noises, such as banging, grinding, or squealing coming from your air conditioner may indicate mechanical problems or worn-out components. These issues can become more frequent as the system ages. Investing in a new unit can not only eliminate these disruptive noises but also improve the overall efficiency and performance of your cooling system.

Leaky Air Conditioner

If you notice water or refrigerant leaks around your air conditioner, it's a clear sign of a problem. Water leaks could be due to a clogged drain line, while refrigerant leaks can be harmful to your health and the environment. If the unit is aging and experiencing multiple leaks, replacing it with a new, more reliable system may be a wise decision.

High Energy Bills from Air Conditioner

If you've noticed a significant increase in your energy bills, your air conditioner may be working inefficiently. Older units tend to have lower energy efficiency ratings, resulting in higher operating costs. Investing in a new, energy-efficient air conditioner can lead to long-term savings on your energy bills and a reduced environmental impact.

Uncomfortable Indoor Temperature

If you're consistently uncomfortable indoors despite adjusting the thermostat, your air conditioner may be struggling to maintain the desired temperature. Older units may lack the capacity to effectively cool your home, especially during the extreme heat we get in this part of the country. Upgrading to a more powerful and efficient model can enhance your comfort and overall indoor air quality.

Proper Air Conditioner Installation Services

To avoid common installation mistakes, your professional AC installers will consider the following:

  • Proper Sizing: Your HVAC company will ensure that the air conditioner is appropriately sized for your space. Oversized or undersized units can lead to inefficiency and discomfort.
  • Correct Placement: The outdoor unit will be placed in a well-ventilated area away from obstructions as proper airflow is crucial for optimal performance.
  • Adequate Insulation: A home's insulation will also be addressed, as proper insulation helps maximize the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Sealed Ductwork: Leaks in ductwork can result in energy loss. A professional will inspect and seal ducts during installation.
  • Thermostat Placement: The techs will make sure to install the thermostat in an optimal location away from direct sunlight, drafts, and heat-producing appliances.

Benefits of Hiring A Professional Air Conditioner Installer

While we all love a good DIY project, installing a new AC should not be on your honey-do list. Hiring a professional air conditioner installer offers several advantages, including:

  • Expertise: Professionals have the knowledge and experience to properly size and install air conditioning systems, ensuring optimal performance.
  • Compliance: HVAC installers are familiar with local building codes and regulations, ensuring that the installation meets all necessary standards.
  • Warranty Preservation: Professional installation often comes with warranties that may be voided if the system is not installed by a certified technician.
  • Efficiency: Proper installation enhances the efficiency of your air conditioner, leading to lower energy costs and increased comfort.
  • Safety: Professionals prioritize safety during installation, minimizing the risk of accidents or damage to the equipment.
