Air Conditioning Installation

According to the US Department of Energy, a central air conditioning system may last anywhere from 10 to 20 years; however, many factors determine how long your air conditioning system will last. These include proper care and maintenance, major repairs, how long the unit runs per day, and exposure to corrosive elements.

In 1995, the production of chlorofluorocarbons, the main refrigerant used in air conditioners in the second half of the 20th century, was stopped in the United States. Most air conditioning systems now use halogenated chlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), but those are also being phased out. The phase-out for HCFC-22 or R-22 Freon began in 2010 and will stop entirely in 2020.

Signs that it may be time to replace your air conditioning system include:

  • Age – if your air conditioner is 10-15 years of age or older and uses R-22 Freon.
  • Costly repairs – a number of costly repairs may eventually cost more than replacement, and may indicate a bigger problem with the unit.
  • Constantly running system – if your system runs constantly, but doesn’t cool your home, your unit may not be operating efficiently. This could indicate equipment failure or ductwork or other issues.
  • Higher energy bills – Equipment issues may result in increased utility bills
  • Increases in indoor humidity levels or dust – if your home feels too humid or you notice more dust, it may be time for a new air conditioning system.

Improvements in cooling technologies and materials have made air conditioners quieter and more energy-efficient, with less negative impact on the environment.
