Before we know it, summer's heat and humidity will be here in Northeast Ohio. Is your air conditioner ready to keep you cool, or did it struggle last summer with one repair after another? We know the decision to replace a central air conditioning system is a difficult one that many homeowners put off as long as possible. However, an older system eventually needs to be replaced because it's become a health and safety risk.
Spring is the best time of year to replace your AC system before the busy summer season arrives. However, if you're on the fence about replacing your AC, Hey Neighbor Heating & Cooling suggests reviewing these six reasons you shouldn't wait any longer.
If your home's AC was installed before 2010, it uses R-22 Freon. As of 2022, this refrigerant can no longer be produced or imported into the USA. It's damaging to the environment because it contributes to the depletion of the ozone layer.
An inevitable fact is that an older air conditioner will have more mechanical issues than a newer model, but perhaps most concerning is its wiring. Some of the system's wiring is internal, which can be damaged if your system overheats. Also, the wire's insulation degrades and becomes brittle and worn over time. This makes an old system a possible shock or fire danger.
An AC system that hasn't been well-cared-for and cleaned over the years is an ideal environment for biohazards like mold, bacteria, and fungi. These organisms can spread from your AC system throughout your ductwork and cause a variety of illnesses.
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is a concern for most families, but especially for those who suffer from chronic respiratory conditions like asthma or COPD. Your home should be the place where you're able to breathe easily. However, an old, dirty AC unit will cause the IAQ in your home to worsen gradually, aggravating breathing issues and potentially causing new health problems to form.
Though it may sound made-up, Sick Building Syndrome is actually a real thing. It's caused by an accumulation of airborne microorganisms in air conditioning units. One indication is when the air in your home smells musty or moldy. Your family members may experience chronic symptoms, such as:
• Difficulty breathing
• Itchy or rashy skin
On a hot, humid summer day, your family relies on your home's air conditioner to stay cool and comfortable. However, as your AC unit ages, it'll struggle to cool your home and become progressively less reliable. Meanwhile, the high temperature in your home can become unbearable during the summer.
Instead of rolling the dice with an old AC system that puts your family's health and safety at risk, it's best to install a new system before summer arrives. But why should you choose us to install and maintain your new AC system?
