How to Know if You Need to Replace Your AC

Is it time for AC replacement in Utah? Here are some signs:

  • Lack of cool air. Within minutes of turning on your AC, you should feel cold air. If it’s taking way too long or you’re not getting any cold air at all, you may have clogged pipes.
  • Strange noises. Your AC unit should not be squeaking or grinding. It should be operating at a quiet level; if it’s not, you may need a new unit.
  • Bad smells. There should not be a distinguishable sound when you operate your AC unit. Burning smells indicate a problem. 
  • Increased energy bills. As AC units get older, they may have to work harder to get the house cooled down. This can increase energy bills.
