Should You Replace Only the Outside Unit or Your Entire AC?

Monday, March 7th, 2016

A conventional air conditioning system is composed of two parts: the condenser unit, which you’ll find outside, and the indoor blower and evaporator coil. When an air conditioning system fails, it may be that only one half of your air conditioning system really cannot go on—typically the outside unit. And it might seem like you could save money by replacing only the outdoor unit.

Is Now the Right Time to Replace My AC?

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

As the long hot weather season in Florida begins to get into gear, you’ll begin thinking about how your current air conditioning system will hold up. If you have a fairly new AC, you shouldn’t have much to worry about as long as you have regular maintenance done during the spring to keep it fine-tuned. However, for an older air conditioner, you may wonder if perhaps the time is right—before the extreme heat strikes—to replace it with a newer system.

Choosing to have new air conditioning installation in Miami, FL takes commitment, but it may be the most long-term economical and short-term comfortable path to take. Air on Demand can make the process easier for you, and with our help, you’ll know if you need to repair or replace your AC, and you’ll have the trained and professional assistance necessary to do either.

When AC replacement is the best choice

The first step in deciding whether or not to replace your current air conditioning is to check on the manufacturer’s estimated lifespan for the system. If your air conditioner has met or exceeded it, then you’ve already received a great bargain from it and should consider a replacement before the AC begins to deteriorate and cost money in upkeep. You should consider this even if the older system appears to be working fine.

A replacement may be necessary for a system a few years younger than the expected lifespan if it has shown signs of consistent poor performance that repairs and maintenance have not improved. Look over your cooling bills for the last few years: if you notice a steady increase, despite regular maintenance, then your system is aging and should be replaced. Check over repair bills: a continual need for repairs also means a system past its prime and in need of a replacement.

You may also wish to change out your air conditioner to take advantage of a more efficient system that benefits from recent technology. Some customers decide to switch over to a heat pump instead of an AC so they can have cooling and heating in one package.

Call for professional installers

If you want a professional opinion regarding a replacement AC, contact heating and cooling specialists and let them look over your current system. They will help you make the best choice for your comfort and your budget. Let them handle the installation as well, if you go that route, so your new air conditioner/heat pump will work the best it can.

Air on Demand offers excellent air conditioning installation service in Miami, FL. Make us your first call when you prepare for the summer.

Miami Air Conditioning Question: How Do I Know When to Replace My Air Handler?

Monday, August 13th, 2012

The air handler in your Miami home is incredibly important. Whenever you change the thermostat to turn on your air conditioning or heating system, the air handler goes into action. Within the unit, the fan blower motor turns to move air from the heating or cooling unit into the ductwork, so it can be delivered to you through your home. If the air handler is not working properly or if it is showing signs of age, it may need to be replaced to ensure optimal efficiency from your Miami HVAC system.

Here are a few signs that your air handler may be at the end of its useful lifespan.

 Reduced Efficiency in Your Heating/Cooling System

The most common sign that an air handler is ready to be replaced is if the efficiency of your heating and cooling system suddenly drops through the floor. Maybe you are not getting even heating or cooling in every room of your home, or maybe your heating and cooling system suddenly costs much more operate. In either case, it could be due to a failing air handler which needs to be replaced.

 Improper Filtering

If the air-quality in your home starts to suffer, it could be due to the filters not working properly in your air handler. Sometimes it is just a clog or a bad filter. Other times, however, it can be due to the air handler itself not working properly.

Constant Repairs

Obviously, if you are calling in an expert to visit your home and perform AC repairs on your air handler seemingly every week, it might be more cost-effective just to have a new system installed. You can talk to a technician to discuss whether or not the price of installation will offset the cost of all those repairs.

HVAC Upgrade

If you have an old air handler, often when you upgrade your heating or air conditioning system, it is recommended to have a new air handler installed as well. Your technician will generally recommend to you whether this is necessary, but it is important to keep in mind in case you are planning on having a new furnace or air conditioner installed in the future.

Your air handler is incredibly important, so if it is showing signs of wear or if you think it may need to be replaced, take it seriously and have a Miami air conditioning professional Air On Demand inspect the system right away.
