Signs That It’s Time for an AC Replacement

Air conditioners tend to last 12 to 15 years, but they will gradually decline in performance and efficiency as they age. A new system typically offers significantly improved comfort, lower energy costs, and greater reliability. For many homeowners, an AC replacement will be worth the cost if any of the following are true:

  • Your AC unit is over 12 years old. The maximum service life for all but the most well-maintained systems is about 12 to 15 years.
  • It is inefficient. Older systems often had SEER ratings of less than 13, while today’s range is from 14 to over 20 SEER, which translates into significantly lower utility costs.
  • It needs frequent repairs. As older parts fail, service calls and repair bills will gradually increase.
  • It has major problems. If a compressor fails or a coil springs a leak on an older system, it may not be worth the price to repair it.
  • It has poor cooling performance. An older system with worn parts and significant damage may provide inadequate cooling and humidity control.

If you’re considering an AC replacement, talk to our team at AIS. We can evaluate your system and offer honest advice about repair and replacement options. Discover what you can expect during an HVAC replacement service with AIS.

Frequently Asked Questions on AC Replacement


How do I know if I need a new AC unit?

Not sure if it’s time to replace your air conditioner or get it repaired again? Here are some signs that it’s time to get a new AC:

  • Your AC is over 10 years old
  • It doesn’t run efficiently or short-cycles (turns on more frequently than it should)
  • You have to have frequent repairs done on your AC
  • It isn’t cooling your home effectively or at all

If you’re not sure it’s time, call a professional for an evaluation of your air conditioner. We diagnose your AC’s issues and make recommendations on whether it’s more cost-effective to repair or replace your AC unit.


How much does an AC replacement cost?

The cost of replacing your air conditioner varies based on several factors, such as the size of the unit, the brand, the efficiency rating, and any additional features or services needed for installation.

On average, you might expect to pay anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000 for a new central air conditioning system, including installation.

A new heat pump will cost $5,000 to $10,000, while replacing a central AC system will cost between $3,000 and $7,000. Replacing ductless mini-splits will cost you between $3,500 and $10,000.

These are rough estimates, and these costs will vary. Getting a free AC replacement estimate is a great place to start!


How long does an AC replacement take?

The AC replacement process can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. The timeline varies based on factors like the type of system being installed, the size of your property, accessibility to the unit, condition of existing infrastructure, and weather.

The process looks like this:

  1. In-home AC evaluation and recommendations
  2. Purchase of new AC system and components
  3. Removal of your old AC system
  4. Installation of your new air conditioner
  5. Calibration and quality assurance

When you work with AIS Heating & Air Conditioning, you’ll get a timeline and be kept in the loop on the progress of your new AC every step of the way.


What are the benefits of a new, high-efficiency AC system?

Replacing your old AC system can lower your energy bills. Newer ACs are designed to consume less energy while providing the same amount of cool air.

A more efficient system reduces your home’s environmental impact and promotes better indoor air quality. Newer ACs last longer than older models and operate much quieter, too.


How do I choose the right AC unit for my home?

AIS Heating & Air Conditioning will perform a Manual J calculation to determine your home’s cooling needs.

It takes into account your home’s size and layout, insulation levels, windows, orientation (do you have west-facing windows?), exterior walls and roofs, local climate data, and air and ventilation requirements.

Then, we will recommend AC systems based on our findings and your preferences. Some factors to consider are noise level, programmable thermostats, and humidity control. With our help, you’ll select an AC that best suits your family’s budget and cooling needs.
