Just like all other equipment and system in your home, the air conditioning system basically operates better when it is regularly maintained. Unless you want to spend another thousand in the next five years or so, consistent and systematic maintenance is the best key to ensure longevity and efficiency of your AC unit. Most of the time, a well-maintained unit can last for up to 20 years or even longer!
When is the right time to replace the air conditioning unit?
Unusual noises – Is the unit giving off a weird noise? Can you hear a few creaks here and there? Are there grinding sounds coming from the unit itself? Basically, the AC unit should work as if it isn’t there, which means that you should not hear or smell anything coming from the unit itself.
Ridiculous humidity – This indication is definitely something that you couldn’t ignore, especially when it’s your comfort that we’re talking about here. When the air has become too humid, it’s not only unpleasant, it’s also unhealthy for you and your family. Time to check out the AC then.
Outrageous energy bill – Well, maybe not as outrageous as to triple the amount, but enough to make you feel suspicious. Basically, you’ll get higher bills when the AC unit isn’t functioning properly. Aside from a possible damaged part, older units may also cause this since they have to exert more than the usual effort to provide positive results.
When thinking about getting an AC replacement, ask yourself:
- Why am I putting off the replacement? Is it about the cost?
- How old is my AC unit?
- Will replacing my unit benefit me?
Apparently, many homeowners would rather settle with their older AC units as long as they’re still working. Unfortunately, it won’t be long before you see the disadvantages – frequent repairs, higher energy bills – these and more are what you’ll most likely experience if you won’t have your outdated unit replaced as soon as possible. With today’s modern technology, smart air conditioning systems are actually more efficient, more functional, and more energy-saving, which means that you get to save a lot on your electric bill in the process.

Heating and Cooling Terms
What’s a condenser? A thermostat? What does HVAC even mean? Don’t worry you’re not alone.
Aside from an HVAC professional, no homeowner would know everything there is about the HVAC system. Unless, of course, you are quite a researcher yourself. Not knowing even, the most basic HVAC terms can make it difficult for you to troubleshoot issues on your system. Likewise, you’d most likely find it hard to understand what the HVAC technician is talking about.
Baytown HVAC has rounded up 10 of the most common heating and cooling terms so you could finally have an idea what we’re dealing with here. It would also make it easier for you to make purchases in the future.
Heating and Cooling Terms
Air Cleaner – also referred to as air purifier, is basically a system that cleans the air from various substances and particles, including dust, pollen, dirt, and even allergens that could trigger several illnesses. There are air cleaners that are automatically installed along with your HVAC system. You can also buy one separately.
Air Handler – usually described as a large-sized metal box, the air handler consists of dampers, filter chambers, blower, and cooling or heating elements. It is used to boost air circulation within the HVAC system.
Compressor – this part of the air conditioning system or heat pump system is located outside your home. It works to compress the refrigerant to cool down warm and humid air.
Condenser Coil – this particular part of the HVAC system is responsible for allowing the release of heat from the refrigerant gas and condensing it into liquid in the process.
Ductwork – when an HVAC system is installed in your home, tubes and metal ducts are also mounted all throughout. This is where the air travels as it creates pathways and releases the air through the air vents. Basically, the ductwork permits air cooling or heating to provide you with the right temperature.
Evaporator Coil – this part of the HVAC system strategically pulls out the heat from the air and allows the refrigerant to evaporate, eventually dropping the temperature of the air in the process.
Humidistat – this is usually attached to the humidifier in order to give info as to the humidity level of your home.
Refrigerant – this substance basically produces a cooling effect by shifting from gas to liquid
SEER – or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio is the standard measurement to gauge the operating efficiency of an air conditioning unit.
Thermostat – known as the controlling unit of the HVAC system, this element allows you to set the temperature based on your preference.
AC Repair or Replace
To repair or to replace? That is the ultimate question.
Over the years, you’ll most likely encounter quite a few issues on your HVAC system, specifically the air conditioning unit. There are basically a lot of factors that contribute to operational problems, including consistent usage, outdated models, and lack of maintenance. When we visit your home or commercial establishment for HVAC repair, our team might encounter minor and major issues that would require more than just the usual AC repair. Sometimes, an AC replacement could be your most feasible solution.
Is it time to replace your AC? What are the factors to consider?
Technology improves over time, and with that improvement also means that the equipment, tools, and various systems that you’re using at home will most likely have modern counterparts already. If your air conditioning system is already at least 10 years old, you might already have encountered quite a lot of issues. There are a lot of system parts with the HVAC that are prone to possible damages, including the air duct, coil, and belts. An old system will likely suffer this.
Cost of repair
When the AC unit is nearing the end of its life, minor and major repairs are to be expected. From repairing minor system parts to replacing a major component, you’ll need to shell out quite a lot of money in the process. The best way to determine if you would need to replace rather than repair the AC unit is to consider the repair costs. If the repair estimate is more than or at least 50% of the entire cost of the unit, then we say it is time to replace it. Always keep in mind how much you would be spending for constant repairs.
Modern HVAC systems are programmed to be smarter and more efficient versions of the old ones. This means that more energy is conserved, leading to lower electricity bills. Smart features are also added in modern HVAC systems. One of the best features you get to enjoy is remote access to the system that allows you to adjust the temperature even when you’re still on your way home. You can do this through your smartphone.
