Just like any home appliance, your air conditioner will not last forever. Sometimes it can be difficult to know whether you just need to call in a handyman to replace a filter and fix a leak or if your unit is one hot day away from kicking the bucket entirely. Fortunately, there are certain specific warning signs you can watch out for that indicate when it's time for a new air conditioner installation. The first is energy bills that have suddenly gone through the roof. This indicates your unit is having to work too hard to try to get the job done, meaning it's likely past its prime in terms of efficiency. Another signal of potential problems is strange noises or smells coming from the system. Any sort of grinding or squeaking is not normal, nor is an overall increase in volume. Likewise, your air conditioner should be emitting clean and fresh air, not burning smells or musty odors. Lastly, moisture that has built up to the extent that your house is overly humid or that a refrigerant leak has resulted indicates your unit is no longer able to handle moisture in the way it's intended to, and you could have a mold problem on your hands before you know it. If you notice any of these issues, be sure to schedule a professional air conditioner installation before you find yourself sweating and suffering.
