The average lifespan of an AC unit is approximately 10–15 years. Maintaining the air conditioner extends the lifespan of the appliance. An adverse change in efficiency and effectiveness may act as a hint that you need to purchase a new machine. Here are signs that can help you determine if your AC unit in Hillsborough, NJ, needs repair or replacement.

Change in Airflow

After some years of service, your AC unit may stop transmitting cold air. Several issues like a broken compressor and low Freon levels might cause this problem.

Sometimes, you may get fresh air throughout your house, but the machine’s effectiveness might be lower. This might be a sign of a broken compressor or blocked vents.

Although it is possible to repair these parts, it can also be expensive, depending on the unit’s age. However, you can contact one of our technicians at Griffith Energy Services to inspect the AC. The technician will let you know whether the AC unit needs to be repaired or replaced.

Leakage and Moisture Around the AC Unit

It is normal for condensation to take place around the AC. However, extreme leakage can pose a significant threat to you and your family. Besides that, it can cause substantial damage to the floors and furniture.

A refrigerant leak is a severe problem that needs to be addressed ASAP. Do not wait until the problem escalates and becomes a hazard to your health, your HVAC system and the environment.

Your System Is Older Than 15 Years

If your AC unit is this old, then you have already realized an abundant return on your investment. With time, the device will produce rattling, squealing, and banging noises that do not seem reasonable.

If you notice such strange noises, it’s a good idea to have your air conditioner inspected. Better still, you can upgrade to a brand new machine.
