Signs Your Air Conditioning Systems Needs to be Replaced

If you notice any of these signs, it might be time to replace your air conditioning system.

1. Your system isn’t pushing out cold air

If you’re air conditioning system stops blowing cold air, the system likely needs to be replaced. Before purchasing a new system, we highly recommend having a professional HVAC technician come out and take a look at your system to ensure there is not an affordable option to repair your system.

2. Restricted airflow through your home

If you are experiencing cold air being circulated through your home but you notice your air conditioning system isn’t pushing air through the events like it typically does, this can indicate a compressor failure or blocked vents. When considering repairs of this type of issue, make sure to take into consideration the cost of the repair as well as the age of your system. If the system is older and the repair cost is high, it can be more cost efficient to replace the entire system.

3. Strange noises and grinding sounds

Any strange noises such as squealing, rattling, banging or grinding sounds can be a sign that your air conditioning system is on it’s last leg. If you notice any of these noises, turn your system off immediately and give our team at MRW Mechanical a call immediately. We’ll be able to send a team out to diagnose the issue with your system and provide you with several options within your budget.

4. Different areas of your home are cooling differently

If different areas of your home are cooling differently, it’s not always a sign that your air conditioning system is failing, especially if you have your system split up into different zones. Instead, there might be an issue with how your thermostat is working. Once your thermostat is repaired, you should experience a full-funtioning air conditioning system.

5. Your air conditioning system is old

If you have been experiencing consistent issues with your air conditioning system and it’s 10-15 years old, the system could simply be reaching the end of its lifespan.
