Is it Time for an AC Replacement?
Air conditioners don't have an expiration date, but they may need more frequent or involved repairs as they age. The typical AC system is about 14 years old when it's replaced. Longevity also depends on the unit's maintenance history and structural factors, such as your home's insulation levels.
Eventually, it may be more cost-effective to invest in an air conditioning replacement rather than putting money toward repairs. At American Cooling and Heating, we provide personalized recommendations following an in-depth inspection. Here are a few things we look for.
Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs Replacement
- High electricity bills
- Comfort challenges
- Rising repair costs
- Reliability concerns
- Mechanical damage
- Excessive noise

What to Expect During the Replacement Process
If you're thinking about a replacement, start with a free consultation. Our NATE-certified installers will assess your home and discuss your goals. We provide honest fact-based advice that makes sense for your situation, and we never use high-pressure sales techniques.
