Signs That It’s Time to Replace Your Air Conditioning System

We’re just about at the 100 degree mark for daytime temps here in Benson, and even though the evening temps are still dropping into the 70s, it’s hot – too hot to have your air conditioner run poorly or, worse, break down entirely. Like any other mechanical system, your air conditioner will give some signs that it’s on its way out – signs you shouldn’t ignore. Your air conditioning replacement in Benson is a big decision, so if you aren’t sure whether or not it’s really time to replace, let the following tips from Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning help you to decide:

  • It’s hard to keep your home cool – does it take a long time for your home to reach the temperature on the thermostat? Are there multiple hot and cold spots throughout your home? Both of these can be signs of an aging air conditioner that is no longer capable of cooling your home.
  • Constant breakdowns – we love to see our customers, but there can come a time when we are seeing you too much. If you need repairs frequently, such as every 4-6 weeks, it may be time to call us for a consultation instead of a repair. Why? At some point, constant repairs can cost as much as a replacement system, but without any of the benefits. If you experience too many breakdowns, speak with a Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning expert about a possible replacement.
  • Low on efficiency – if your air conditioner is 8 years old or older, the SEER number – the number that rates its efficiency – is likely below the federal standard of 13. This is because the SEER number laws changed in 2006, raising the minimum SEER from 10 to 13. While this may not seem like much of a jump, it is estimated by Energy.gov that each SEER point can equal as much as a 5% savings on your monthly energy bill.
  • Very expensive repairs – you may not need constant repair, but do you need very expensive repairs to keep your system running? The same idea applies to this scenario, too: at some point you will have paid enough in costly repairs to have paid for a new system.

Mr. Farias taught me a lot about the water system in my house and prepared the ground for Mr. Dado to come and fix everything. He was always very honest and delightful. I actually enjoyed his visit.

My technician Jorge (George) Gutierrez was out today performing the a/c system check. He did a fabulous job and identified significant issues and concerns for the longevity of my current 12 year old system. He was very knowledgeable and helpful on what my options are and in the end I’ll be getting a new system instead of worrying about the current system failing in our extremely hot temperatures. He was very respectful of my home and my dog was ecstatic to meet him.

Frank identified the need for new faucets in the master bath and discussed my preferences. The type of faucet being replaced is no longer available (mini wide spread) so he had to do some research to come up with a solution. Had to be ordered, not surprisingly, and we appreciate his conscientious performance.

This was my first service with this company and it was a pleasant one. The technicians were professional and polite and quickly resolved a minor scheduling conflict. Interaction with a sales manager for a quote on needed equipment was equally pleasant.

Signed up for the Sadie membership as a a preventative measure to avoid bigger problems down the line. Had my appointment to check my system today and to my surprise the tech discovered a huge gash in my ductwork! Thankfully so because the ductwork up there is a very tight space which I could never squeeze myself into and would’ve gone unnoticed for who knows how long. Huge thank you to Technician Roy Adame for making the trip out on a Saturday afternoon, going the extra mile to fully inspect the system in a tight space, and fully explaining the possible causes of the damage and the impact it would on the system performance. 🙏🏼🤙🏼🫡👏🏼🙂
