When should you replace an air conditioning unit?
Ideally, homeowners should replace their AC unit every 10-15 years. This usually depends on the condition you keep your unit in. Call our Savannah AC technicians to find out if it’s time for a replacement.
Is it easy to replace an air conditioner compressor?
While replacing an AC unit’s compressor on your own is doable, it requires competent hands and an experienced technician. Proper licensing and permits are required to carry out this replacement. Because the process involves handling the remaining refrigerant, disconnecting and then removing the dysfunctional compressor, it can be very time-consuming and is better left to a professional.
Can you install a central air unit yourself?
You cannot install a central air conditioning unit yourself. Even if you are technically sound or a competent handyman, the number of electrical components involved can create too significant a risk. You cannot legally install an AC unit without the proper licensing and permits. Reach out to our Savannah AC technicians for professional and safe installation.
Is central air conditioning cheaper than window air conditioning units?
Window air conditioning units are much cheaper than central AC units. However, central AC will ultimately cost less if you attempt to cool five or more rooms. It is also important to note that central air conditioning can raise property value because of its efficiency and modernity.
Does central air conditioning use more electricity than window units?
Central air conditioning uses much more electricity than window units. The average central AC unit uses between 3,000 to 5,000 watts, while window units use between 500 to 1500 watts depending on unit size.
Are ductless mini-splits worth buying?
Whether you should buy a ductless mini-split system depends on your housing. A ductless mini-split air conditioner can be the perfect solution for small apartments, room add-ons, and multifamily housing.
How do I know if my air conditioner needs to be replaced?
It may be time to replace your AC unit if it is no longer producing cold air, or if there is moisture and leakage or unusual sounds coming from the unit. The average air conditioning unit should be replaced every 10 to 15 years. Call our Savannah AC technicians to receive a professional diagnosis and solution.
