Signs You Need an AC Upgrade

Do you know the signs that show when you need an AC upgrade?

Odd Noises

A telltale sign that your air conditioning unit is going to give way any day now is weird noises. Your AC should operate relatively silently—maybe you’ll notice the sound of air rushing through the vents. Anything other than these sounds is a huge problem. Common malfunction noises are clanging, banging, grating, screeching, or squealing.

Not Enough Cooling Power

Do you run your air conditioner all day but never feel like your home is cool enough? This is a sign of air conditioner inefficiency, don’t make your AC unit work harder to provide you baseline levels of cooling, upgrade your unit.

High Energy Bills

If your air conditioning bill is sky high in summer, don’t just write it off as an inexplainable inconvenience. It’s more than likely due to air conditioning inefficiency. An upgrade will help you save money on your heating system.


How old in your air conditioning unit. If it’s between the ages of 10 and 15, you should consider upgrading, even if it seems like there’s nothing wrong with your unit. Your unit can only last for so long, forcing it past a reasonable age will only cost you more money. Don’t spend an excessive amount of money on a system that struggles to cool your home.

Why Now?

When it’s summer or even late spring, people feel temperatures start to rise and they start to buy. The stock is depleted, and technicians are busy, so the demand starts to rise and so does the price. In winter, we’re so cold here in Utah that the last thing on anyone’s mind is their air conditioning. This allows a consumer like you to have the best pick of brands, makes, models, and teams to install these systems for you.

In addition to this, it’s better to upgrade now when you’re not reliant on your air conditioner. Upgrading in summer will leave you hot and sweaty in the heat and upgrading in spring will make the process too rushed and anxiety provoking.
