Why You Might Need AC Installation in Carlsbad

We understand that air conditioner replacement is a significant investment, and it makes sense that you’d want to get the most from your current system until the very end. However, if you’re on the fence about replacing your AC system, it may help to know some of the typical signs that things are going downhill, so you can be equipped with the information you need to schedule AC installation in Vista or Carlsbad when the time comes. Some common indicators that your air conditioner needs to be replaced include:

  • AC is blowing warm air. While this inherently seems counter-productive to normal AC functionality, it is also a good indication that your air conditioner needs maintenance or repairs. Depending on the root cause of warm air blowing, it may be time to replace your air conditioning system.
  • Little to no air is coming out of your vents. Weak airflow signals a failing compressor or issues within your duct system.
  • Your thermostat is not accurate. If turning your thermostat off and back on doesn’t alleviate the problem, you may have a wiring issue that an expert should address.
  • Your system is making unusually loud noises. Strange sounds emanating from your system can indicate various problems, from loose parts to busted belts. This is an excellent time to get your air conditioner serviced to get to the root of the noise.
  • Your AC smells terrible. No one likes unpleasant odors lingering in their home. But, as with noises, pungent smells can have several causes, ranging from burnt wire insulation to mold. Some smells, like constant burning or rubber, may require replacing your AC.
  • Refrigerant is leaking around your system. In the most severe cases, your system could leak freon, which is poisonous. A leak could also be backflowing water from a blocked or broken condensation tube.
  • Your system is old. If your AC system has celebrated its 10th birthday, it may be time to throw a party and start shopping for a new system. A decade is at the high end of how long air conditioners tend to live, so if you’re approaching that mark, repairs will likely begin to accumulate, and new AC installation outweighs keeping your old system.

What to Consider When Replacing an AC

Getting a new air conditioning system is exciting but also overwhelming:

  • How do you know which air conditioning replacement is best for your home?
  • Should you get the most popular brand?
  • Should you settle for the least expensive?

Take advantage of the expertise of our Carlsbad cooling technicians. We take the time to survey your home and learn your preferences to find the right size, model, and brand of air conditioner. Here are the factors we take into consideration when choosing a new AC:

  • The size of your home
  • The number of occupants in your home
  • The number of windows in the house
  • Ventilation and insulation concerns
  • Air quality concerns
  • Your average energy cost
  • Your budget

Trust Sherlock Plumbing, Heating & Air to recommend the most energy-efficient, budget-friendly, and reliable air conditioners from trusted brands. We also offer financing options for your convenience.
