Should You Repair or Replace Your AC Unit?
An air conditioning unit that is not very old or has a minor problem can generally be repaired easily. In other situations, AC replacement is clearly the better option. In recent years, there have been significant improvements in technology and efficiency in air conditioning systems. Modern systems offer much quieter operation, more reliable performance, and substantially better energy efficiency than equipment built just 10 years ago.
Signs your AC needs repair include:
- Feeling warm air coming out of your vents
- Dealing with poor airflow & circulation
- Having high humidity when your unit is on
- Spotting refrigerant leaks around your unit
- Smelling foul odors coming from your system
- Hearing banging, clinking, or other loud noises
- Experiencing an increase in your energy bills
- Struggling to keep your home cool
- Realizing your AC unit is frequently cycling
- Seeing ice form on your evaporator coil
Signs you may need AC replacement include:
- You experience one or more of the signs above
- Your air conditioner is over 10 years old
- You experience frequent & costly AC breakdowns
- Your energy bills have significantly increased
- Your unit uses R-22 Freon, which was phase out in 2020

A Word About Refrigerant
The type of refrigerant used by your air conditioning system is one of the factors to consider when making decisions about replacement. Older equipment uses R-22 refrigerant, which has chlorine in its chemical makeup. This is extremely harmful to the environment, which is the reason it has been phased out over the years.
The phase-out process began in 2004 and by 2010, R-22 equipment could no longer be manufactured, but the refrigerant could still be produced. As of 2020, production and importing of R-22 was required to end. R410A refrigerant is the new EPA-recognized chlorine-free refrigerant that provides exceptional comfort without exacting a costly environmental toll.
What Should You Consider When Installing A New Air Conditioning System?
The summer heat and the increase in dust and pollen in the air make air conditioning important for Colorado homes. AC systems make your home more comfortable, reduce humidity levels, and help to filter dust, pet dander, pollen, and other allergens from the air, which helps to improve your indoor air quality. We can help you find the best cooling system for your home that will fit the physical requirements of your space and your budget.
