Frequently Asked Questions About Air Conditioning Replacement

When is it better to replace, rather than repair, an old air conditioner?

Most air conditioners will falter and fail somewhere between 10-15 years after installation. As a general rule, if it’s near this age, or if the cost of repairs exceeds 50% of the price of a new air conditioner, replacement is the better option.

Will James A. Wheat & Sons help me choose the right sized replacement?

Absolutely. We use a thorough calculation to help our clients select the best air conditioner system for their homes. We consider windows, window facing, insulation, the size of the home, foliage cover, and more to ensure that the unit has sufficient cooling capacity for the home and our climate.

How much does a new air conditioner cost?

A new air conditioner can cost anywhere from $3,000 up to around $10,000. They are a considerable investment, and you will want to carefully select a unit that delivers the energy savings, comfort, and reliability you desire.

Can I detect refrigerant leaks?

Refrigerant leaks are a common indication that serious damage may be present. If you suspect a leak, a fluorescent dye test, UV light, or pressure test can confirm if there is a leak.

Is keeping the AC fan on “Auto” an energy-efficient decision?

Absolutely. This will ensure the fan only runs within the parameters of the temperature settings you input into the thermostat. This will save you considerable money throughout the year. For greater savings, connect your HVAC systems to a smart thermostat to give you greater control throughout the year.

What maintenance does a new air conditioner require?

You will want to clean and inspect the air conditioner every month properly. You should make sure the filter is free of debris and that any leaves, branches, etc., don’t block airflow around the unit. Once a year, you will want to have a certified HVAC technician perform a full-service check to confirm refrigerant levels are topped off, tight connections, and components in good condition.
