When to Call for Air Conditioning Replacement
Are you experiencing problems with your air conditioner? There are several things to consider before you decide if you want to repair your old air conditioner or replace it with a new, higher efficiency air conditioner. Before scheduling AC replacement for your home, ask yourself these questions:
How old is my equipment?
Like all machinery, air conditioners have a limited lifespan, albeit a relatively long one—a well-maintained system will usually last you about 10 to 15 years. If your air conditioner is more than 10 years old and is starting to show signs of wear and tear, a simple repair job may no longer make sense—air conditioner replacement will save you money in the long run.
How much are the repair bills?
If air conditioner repairs costing a few hundred dollars are becoming a regular occurrence, it’s probably time to think about AC replacement. Consistent, expensive repairs are generally a sign of more (often worse) problems to come, so it might just make sense to consider an air conditioning replacement if this is the case.
What was the original SEER?
Since new air conditioners are required to have SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) ratings of 13 or more, they have less of an environmental impact and cost less to run than older air conditioners. In the long run, replacing your old air conditioner with a newer, high efficiency unit could save you hundreds of dollars a year on your energy bills.

Air Conditioner Replacement FAQs
What is the average lifespan of a furnace or air conditioning system?
Provided you schedule regular furnace or air conditioner maintenance and tune ups, your air conditioner should last about 12 – 15 years, and your furnace should last between 15 – 20 years.
Do I have to replace my AC coil when I replace my air conditioner?
You don’t HAVE to, but you should. New air conditioning systems are designed to be paired with a coil of the same SEER. If they’re not, your AC will most likely run at the lower efficiency. Also, older air conditioner coils may use R-22 (Freon) refrigerant, which is no longer the standard—newer air conditioner coils use the environmentally friendly R-410a which can’t be easily transferred over.
What are some good reasons why I should replace my AC?
Sometimes the case for replacing an air conditioner is easy – sometimes it’s not. If your air conditioner isn’t in immediate danger of failure, there are a couple of things you should consider when thinking about air conditioner replacement:
- Your system is more than 10 years old
- Your system is much less efficient than usual
- You’ve had it repaired more than twice in the last two years
