The first thing to consider is the age of your AC system. Systems typically only last between ten and fifteen years (pushing it), so it may be time for a full-blown replacement if yours falls into that category. Sometimes the cost of repair to an air conditioner would exceed the cost of a replacement, in which case we’d work with you to determine an appropriate sized and priced cooling system that works best with your circumstances.
Similar to most other pieces of HVAC equipment, your AC should be checked at least once per year to ensure it’s functioning at full capacity. While you can take some maintenance measures into your own hands, you’ll still want a trained technician to look at your AC system for a comprehensive inspection and tune-up.
One of the primary functions of your air conditioner is to control humidity levels by pulling it out of the air. So if your condenser unit looks like it’s leaking or dripping excessively, there’s a good chance your AC unit may be damaged, low on refrigerant, nearing the end of its life, have a frozen evaporator coil, and more. It’s normal to find some condensation on your air conditioner, but not to the point of pooling.
If you want to maximize the efficiency of your equipment, keep your utility bill stable, and maintain fresh, healthy air in your home or business, then you should replace your air filters at least once every two months.
