Hello, and welcome back to our blog here at Jay Mechanical. Last time we talked about four signs you’ll know it’s time to replace your AC system. This time, we’ll talk about six more signs that your air conditioning may need to be replaced. However, in order to know for sure whether you need replacement or just repairs, contact an HVAC specialist at Jay Mechanical.

Your thermostat won’t work

Although your thermostat not working could be a sign of an electrical problem, it could also be a sign that your AC system is failing. Since your thermostat controls how much your AC blows and for how long, there are a number of issues that could happen.

Foul smells

If it smells like something is burning inside your, this could be a sign that the wire insulation has burned out. If there’s more of a musty smell, it could mean that mold is starting to grow somewhere inside the unit. If you experience either of these issues, you should contact an HVAC specialist immediately.

Moisture leaks

If you’re experiencing a refrigerant leak, you’ll notice moisture around your HVAC system. This is most likely freon, a poisonous substance. Contact an expert immediately to deal with this.

It’s ten years old

If your AC unit is ten years or older, it’s time to start considering replacing the system. If it’s still running efficiently, you may be able to keep it for a few more years, however, most systems won’t last too much longer than this.

It isn’t removing humidity

At times, your home may become very humid. Your AC system should be removing humidity and if it’s not, you may need repairs or replacement.

Frequent issues

If you’ve called your local HVAC company more than once in the past month or less, it may be time to replace the AC system entirely. You should see how much it would be to install a new system and compare it with how much you’re currently spending on HVAC repairs.
