Boise Air Conditioner Replacement
Professional Air Conditioning Installation for Central AC Units, Heat Pumps & More
When an air conditioning unit breaks down, sometimes making repairs might not be the answer. In fact, repairs can often be more expensive than the cost of purchasing a new AC system. In cases like these, it might be time to replace your unit.
What are Common Signs That Your AC Needs to be Repaired?
Common signs that you should replace your air conditioner include:
- You’ve had your unit for a decade or more
- Your AC system needs frequent repairs
- Your AC no longer meets the demands of your household or office
- Your AC unit is not energy-efficient
- Your AC unit uses costly R 22 Freon
- Your monthly energy bill has increased
If any of the above signs apply to your home’s air conditioning system, Diamond Heating & Cooling is prepared to replace and install a new unit. Our licensed cooling technicians can help you choose the right system for your home or office building.
How Long Will A New AC Unit Last?
A new air conditioning unit typically has a lifespan of up to 15 years. However, this is only true if the unit is properly maintained and serviced regularly. Poor maintenance can reduce the life expectancy of an AC unit. Common causes of premature failure include lack of regular maintenance, improper installation, and inadequate ventilation and insulation.
To ensure the longevity of an AC unit, it is important to have it serviced at least once a year by a qualified technician. During these maintenance visits, any necessary adjustments or repairs can be made and components such as filters, coils, and condensers can be checked for cleanliness. Additionally, air circulation should be inspected and improved if needed. Adequate insulation and ventilation can help to reduce the strain of cooling and keep an AC unit running efficiently for longer.
The Importance of a Properly Sized Air Conditioner
Bigger isn’t always better. This is especially true when it comes to air conditioning systems. If the system is too large or powerful for the building it is cooling, it can lead to a lot of wasted money and energy. Air conditioner technicians determine the proper size needed using something called "load calculation."
To calculate how large an HVAC unit a home will need, technicians first look at the size of each room the system will be cooling. Then they also take into account the home’s orientation toward the sun, any shade that is present during the day, window type, insulation, building materials, and regional weather patterns. Together, these factors will help them decide which system will work the best and be as energy efficient as possible.
How can homeowners tell if their current air conditioning system is too large? The system will turn on and off very quickly. This allows it to cool the house quickly, but it won’t remove humidity. Removing humidity is a very important part of comfort during the warmer months.
To remove the moisture in the air, the air conditioner needs longer runtimes. The air moving over the cold evaporator coil causes water vapor to condense, so the more air to move over it, the more water vapor gets condensed and carried away. The system needs about 15 minutes of runtime before there’s serious dehumidification of the air, something an oversized system doesn’t allow.
If high energy bills, humid air, and short runtimes are making you question the size or condition of your air conditioning system, give Diamond Heating and Cooling a call. We can determine if your system is too large and help you install a properly-sized AC system if needed.
