- Poor Airflow: Reduced airflow may stem from clogged air filters, obstructed ducts, or a malfunctioning blower fan.
- Unusual Noises: Strange sounds like rattling, banging, or squealing often indicate loose components, worn-out parts, or debris within the system.
- Frequent Cycling: An AC system that frequently turns on and off might be facing thermostat malfunctions, refrigerant leaks, or incorrect sizing.
- High Energy Bills: A sudden spike in energy bills without an increase in usage might be a sign of an inefficient system, duct leaks, or low refrigerant levels.

Factors To Consider
Depending on the specific problem with your equipment, the best solution may be either AC repair or replacement. Making this decision can feel overwhelming since you want your existing equipment to last as long as possible but don’t want to throw away money on repeated repairs.
Your decision can be made easier when you consider:
- AC unit age – The age of the system is a big part of the decision between repair and replacement. A two-year-old air conditioner will likely be repaired but a system that is more than 10 years old will usually need to be replaced, since the cost of repairs may be more expensive and the energy efficiency of newer models is so much better.
- Maintenance history – How well maintained is your current system? Air conditioners that get regular maintenance will often last longer and run better, while lack of maintenance often leads to early failure.
- Prior repairs – A unit that is constantly in need of repair is frustrating and expensive. Your money may be better spent on a new unit.
- Current repair cost – How much is the current repair going to cost? There is a general rule of thumb that says to multiply the cost of the repair by the age of the system and, if the answer is more than $5,000, replace the unit.
- Overall efficiency and condition – Consider the overall condition of the equipment and the energy efficiency when determining whether to repair or replace your air conditioning system.
An experienced HVAC technician can help you make the best decision for your home. After performing an inspection, your technician can discuss the options for repair and replacement, answer your questions, and provide the information you need to make informed decisions.
