Be ready for summer with air conditioning replacement

Keep your cool!

As the weather starts to heat up, now is the perfect time to get your split system air conditioning inspected by a professional.

Air conditioners are a big investment, so it’s important to make sure that you get the most out of your unit.

Like any other large-scale appliance in your home, air conditioners can become less efficient over time, requiring more energy to cool your home.

If your system isn’t working at its best, you might be wondering whether it’s time to replace it or if you can just get by with air conditioning repairs in Brisbane.

Thinking about air conditioning replacement?

If your air conditioner is more than 10 years old, it might be time to start thinking about upgrading to a newer and more efficient model.

New and modern units are much more energy-efficient than older models, which means they’ll save you money on your energy bills each month. They also come with all of the latest features and technologies, which can make your life much easier – and much more comfortable!

Not sure if you should consider air conditioning replacement? It can be a tough question to answer. Fortunately, there are a number of factors you can look at that will make your decision that little bit easier.

And if you’re still not sure, get the opinion of a professional! Hays can attend your home, inspect your unit, and give you a fair and unbiased recommendation.

Lack of cool air

Of course, one of the most obvious signs that your current system is failing to work at its best is that you’re simply hot!

Whether it’s a weak airflow or the air isn’t as cold as it should be, a lack of cool air is a clear sign that something is amiss.

Odd smells

One of the most telling signs is an odd smell coming from the vents. This could be a sign that your air conditioner is dirty and in need of a good cleaning.

However, if the air conditioner is more than 10 years old, it might be a good time to replace it.

Strange sounds

Another common indicator that your air conditioner is on its last legs is if it’s making strange noises. If you notice any banging, grinding, or squealing, it’s best to call a professional for an inspection.

In many cases, these sounds could indicate that a part is loose or broken and needs to be repaired or replaced.

Sudden spikes in energy bill

An inefficient system that can no longer run at its best may be a cause for this sudden bill shock. If your rates haven’t changed but there’s a definite surge in your bills, it might be worth thinking about upgrading to a more energy-efficient unit.

Age of your system

One of the most important factors to consider is the age of your unit. The average lifespan of a wall-mounted split system is anywhere from 10-15 years.

Of course, this can be impacted by a range of factors, including the quality of the installation, usage, and maintenance history, but it’s certainly a good place to start!

Air-conditioning replacement for summer

Why not start with an air conditioning service, inspection, and clean?

Your air conditioner is one of the most important appliances in your home, and you rely on it all year round to keep cool and comfortable.

During an inspection, our technician will clean your unit and check for any signs of wear and tear. They will also test all of the components of your unit to make sure they are working properly.

Importantly, regular inspections ensure that issues that have the potential to escalate into larger problems are identified and rectified sooner.

How often should I get my air con cleaned and inspected?

Getting your air conditioner inspected regularly can help prolong its lifespan and prevent major issues down the road.

An annual inspection by a professional can help ensure that your unit is running efficiently and effectively. A professional inspection can also help identify any potential problems with your unit before they become major repairs, saving you time, money, and stress!

What temperature should I set my air conditioning in summer?

Of course, when the heat and humidity hits, we naturally want to crank the temperature all the way down to enjoy instant relief, but this can simply put more strain on your unit and, in fact, doesn’t actually help to cool a room down quicker!

The ideal temperature to keep cool and comfortable is usually between 22 and 24ºC – and with each rising degree, you can save on your energy bills. So if you can, try moving your thermostat just one degree higher.
