How Do I Know I Need a New AC?

Your AC is 10 to 15 years old. If you have an older air conditioner it’s time to consider replacing it before a total breakdown leaves you without AC on the hottest day of the year. Another factor to consider is that if your system is more than a decade old it’s likely that even running at peak efficiency it’s not as efficient as the current AC models available. Older models have SEER ratings of 10 or less while newer models can have SEER ratings at a minimum of 13 and as high as 25. Just installing a new AC will automatically save you money on your monthly utility bills.

It’s hot outside and it’s hot inside. When the excess humidity outside starts to feel like it’s spilling inside and it’s like a hot shower has been left to run, there’s a good chance your system isn’t keeping up with the heat. An efficient system will properly regulate the humidity in the air. When your system is struggling, that humidity can increase — especially on days when it’s particularly humid outside.

Your bills are going up. If you’re seeing your bills increase while usage is staying the same, there’s a chance inefficiencies are catching up with your system. As we’ve said, newer units are more energy efficient than older ones and can reduce your energy usage up to 20 to 50 percent a year.

Your AC smells or sounds funny. A properly functioning AC shouldn’t make noises. Squeaking or squealing during operation is a good sign your system needs a visit from a technician and a possible replacement. Same goes for if your system has a strange musty or smoky smell. This could be a sign your system needs replacement.

What Kinds of AC Systems Are Available?

  • Forced Air Split Systems: This air conditioning system makes use of a furnace to blow cooling throughout your home or business. This is one of the most common air conditioning systems in the Waukesha and Milwaukee area.
  • Air Handlers: Much like the standard split system, these systems use an air handling unit to cool the air in your home. Air handlers are usually installed in homes with boilers.
  • Hi-Velocity Systems: Unlike a standard air handler, high velocity systems, branded as Unico or SpacePak, make use of small (usually 3 or 4 inch) cooling supply ducts to distribute cool air throughout your home.
  • Ductless Mini-Split Systems: Mini-Split Systems have the ability to cool and heat specific areas of your home or business or your entire home or business. Mini-split systems don’t use ductwork, making them a great option for homes with no existing ductwork and for heating and cooling home additions without having to tie them into your existing ductwork.

Mike has come to our house a few times in the last few years for my furnace and AC that are getting older. He’s always very friendly and super informative. And my dog LOVES I am! It’s actually adorable how my dog wants to sit right by him while he is working.I feel like I can trust him to give me an honest opinion.Looking at other reviews, it looks like my intuition is right!

Highly recommended! In addition to installing a new AC unit in a new location, we also hired them to relocate our furnace and gas line - all part of a basement remodel. The workers were very knowledgeable, and worked with us through every detail/measurement to ensure our ultimate project would be a success. Kudos to Rob, Lynn, and Jessica for taking great care of us!
