New AC Unit in Portland

Air conditioning is crucial for comfort in your daily life here in Portland. A well maintained AC unit, with yearly inspections and monthly filter changes, can last up to 10 or 15 years.

How do I know if I need repairs for my unit or if I need a replacement?

Age

How old is your air conditioner? The most common reason for a new unit is age. The older your unit gets the less efficient it is and it will continue to lose energy efficiency over time.

Pay attention to how often it needs repairs. Once a year isn’t quite indicative of the need for a new unit yet, but it certainly means you could be getting close to the time to replace it. Getting a new unit can actually save you money in the long run on energy costs and repairs.

Replacing an old unit can also have unseen benefits, including improved air quality and reduced carbon emissions.

Temperature Inconsistencies

How stable does your unit keep the temperatures in your home? This isn’t always directly related to needing a new AC unit, but combine this with the age of your unit and you could be looking for a new one soon.

Temperature inconsistencies also can be the result of leaky ductwork or poor insulation. Contact someone in our office today and we can have one of our service technicians diagnose the problem for you.

Humidity

When a unit gets older it performs less and less efficiently. One thing to pay attention to is the humidity level in your home. A unit that is aging won’t dehumidify as well as it should.

High Utility Bills

Older systems don’t perform as efficiently and in fact can diminish in efficiency each year. If you have noticed a steady increase in your utility bills, it may be time to examine whether or not your system needs replacing.

The certified technicians at Robben and Sons can help diagnose any problems you are having and let you know whether or not the problems you are having mean you need a new HVAC system. Call us today or request service.
