When Is It Time for Air Conditioner Replacement?
Air conditioning units that are several years old typically become less efficient at cooling and can end up costing you a lot more in operating costs than air conditioner replacement. All air conditioners are charged with some type of refrigeration chemical or coolant such as Freon or what is known as R-12 refrigerant. Over time, this refrigerant dissipates in the cooling unit and the unit becomes less efficient causing it to run longer than it should or even run constantly without doing its job of cooling and shutting down.
You may notice that the air coming from your air conditioning unit is not as cold as it once was. This is a good indication that the refrigerant has dissipated from the unit itself. Some air conditioning units can be recharged, but some older units cannot because the older type refrigerant R-12 was replaced by R-134 type Freon. These two types of Freon or coolant cannot be mixed together. The old air conditioning unit would need to be completely retrofitted for the newer coolant if the unit cab is to be serviced or recharged. In other cases, some air conditioning units are completely sealed and it is not cost efficient to perform this type of service. In both of these cases, air conditioner replacement will likely be your best choice.
Another time when you need air conditioner replacement includes when one or several major parts of your air conditioner break. Often when this happens on older units, the best option is to replace the unit with a newer model.
