Toronto is finally getting some relief from the heat with more mild temperatures. Over the past few weeks we saw some temperature records get broken and people do everything possible to beat the heat. Did your air conditioner let you down over the past few weeks when you needed it most? If your air conditioner wasn’t working well or barely kept your home cool during the recent heat wave then it might be time to do some investigating to determine if it’s time for a new air conditioner or not.
How Old is Your Air Conditioner?
The typical lifespan of central air conditioners is 15 – 20 years, which is heavily dependent on the maintenance and repairs that take place over the years. At a certain point you’ll notice a drop in the efficiency on your energy bills and as the repairs bills start to pile up a new air conditioner typically makes the most sense financially.
Here are some other signs you might need a new air conditioner:
- Thermostat problems
- Poor air flow
- Substandard performance
- Strange sounds
- Strange odors
One of the best ways to find out if you need a new air conditioning system or if you maintenance and repairs are enough is to talk to a professional and reputable HVAC company like Novel Care. Sometimes there’s just a bad part in your air conditioner and other times there are major problems with the compressor system. It’s hard to know unless you’re an expert and have encountered lots of problems over the course of an HVAC career.
A New Air Conditioner
HVAC technology has come a long way over the past few years and as a result air conditioners are running more efficient than ever before. This results in great air flow, cost savings and efficiency, as well as reduced maintenance and repairs. Newer systems are also much quieter than older ones.
Novel Care has been installing new air conditioners in Toronto, York Region and the rest of the GTA for over 30 years.
