AC Installation

“Should I Repair Or Replace My A/C in Franklin County?”

If you feel like your AC unit is getting old, or the time might be approaching to replace it, being able to plan ahead is crucial. In order to plan ahead, our industry has a general standard guideline when it comes to central air conditioning systems. If your AC unit is between 10 and 15 years old, it’s definitely a good time to start thinking about having it replaced with a newer model higher in efficiency. However, with that in mind, you should remember that age is just a number, and a number that can vary greatly.

Having said that, keep in mind that age is just a number, and this is only a general guideline. The actual number of years a system operates usefully depends on a few factors.

How does my AC system work?

When it’s functioning properly, air conditioners run in cycles. As soon as the system’s thermostat detects it’s warmer than your set temperature level, the cycle begins. As soon it detects the rise in temperature, the unit comes on and pulls warm air into the unit over the evaporator coils. Using refrigerants inside the A/C compressor, these coils absorb the heat in the air, cooling it and removing moisture. During the cooling cycle, the heat is released outdoors through the A/C’s fans and the cooled air goes into the resident. Eventually, the cooled refrigerant goes back to the indoor unit where the process is repeated until it achieves the desired temperature.
