When to Install a New AC Unit in Ohio Homes

February 28, 2016

This winter has been pretty mild for Ohio residents. Now that February is coming to a close, you are probably starting to prepare your home for the spring and summer ahead. One thing you need to consider when preparing your home is your HVAC unit—particularly your air conditioner and how to get ready for the hot months ahead.

Many homeowners have two options. First is to hire a professional for an inspection and tune-up. No air conditioner should be turned on before a professional ensuring it is safe for use. The second option is to install a new air conditioner. If your AC unit gave you troubles last year, you may be wondering if it is time to install a new one. The HVAC technicians at Rick’s Heating & Cooling have outlined several signs it may be time to install a new AC unit in your Ohio home.

Your Utility Bills Are Higher Than Normal

If you noticed a spike in your utility bills last summer, it may mean that your AC unit is running inefficiently and it may be time to install a new unit. Air conditioners should run for approximately 10 years. If your cooling unit is getting close to that age and is started to lose efficiency, call the experts at Rick’s Heating & Cooling to schedule an installation.

You Are Expanding your Home This Summer

If you are planning on expanding your home this summer, don’t forget about installing an air conditioner that can keep up with the additional space. Each unit that we install is measured to ensure it will cool your home efficiently. If you are adding additional rooms to your home, your current unit may not be able to keep up—resulting in overworking air conditioner.

The AC Didn’t Keep Your Home Cool Last Summer

Did you find yourself entering your home after a long day to find that it is just as hot inside as it is outside? If your home was warm no matter how often you adjusted the thermostat last summer, it may be time to install a new AC to keep your home cool this summer.

You Had to Call the Repair Man Multiple Times Last Summer

Did you have the HVAC repair technician on speed dial last summer? If you had to call for multiple AC repairs in one given summer, it may mean that it’s time to install a new cooling unit. Spending money on multiple repairs in a given can actually be more costly in the long-run than purchasing a brand new unit.
