Finding the Right New AC System
Without the right system for your home, your utility expenses will skyrocket. The AC system size is only part of the equation for evaluating a proper AC system. Equally important is your usage patterns and behavior, along with whether you have multiple zones, or if you have a ductless or central air system.
Why the Right Size Matters
Sizing your new AC system is an exact science. Installing an undersized system leaves your system running constantly without ever providing the relief you desire.
Likewise, and oversized system shuts down too quickly, leading to short cycling. This leaves your home uncomfortable because it doesn’t allow the system to effectively dehumidify your air. In both cases, you’ll increase your utility bills and the frequency of AC repairs.

Signs You Need a New AC System
Not all AC problems mean you’ll need a new AC system. Use the following guide as you consider your options and whether it’s time for an AC installation.
The average air conditioning system in Florida should last 8 to 12 years when it receives regular AC maintenance. Once your system reaches 10 years, you’ll want to consider your ongoing utility and repair costs.
- Increasing Repairs:
Most systems require more repairs in their last two years of service. Multiply the cost of repairs by the age of your system. If that amount is greater than the cost of a new system, it’s time for a replacement. Likewise, a new system may be in order if any one repair equals more than 50% of the cost of a replacement.
- Climbing Energy Consumption:
Look back at your energy consumption for each month that you normally run your air conditioner compared to the year prior. If your actual consumption is consistently more, and you kept the same temperature, you may need a new system.
- It Requires Banned R22 Refrigerant:
If you have an older AC unit that was manufactured before 2010, it likely runs on the older R22 refrigerant. As of 2020, companies are no longer allowed to produce this refrigerant, making further repairs cost prohibitive. Between the cost of new repairs and the degraded efficiency from age alone, it may be the right time for a replacement.
Benefits of a New AC Installation
As you consider your options for an AC installation, think about the benefits you’ll reap once the new AC system is installed.
- Reduce Cooling Costs:
If you’re considering when to get an AC installation, it’s likely because your system is old, or not working properly. In either case, your system isn’t operating at its intended efficiency. A new system will increase that efficiency. It’ll also reduce the frequency of repairs, further saving on your annual cooling costs.
- Increase Home Value:
One of the things that potential home buyers consider are any substantial repairs the home will need in the near future. If you have an aging AC, that will work against you in the home buying process. Further, a new air conditioner may yield a return of up to about 50% if you sell in the next two or three years.
- Better Home Comfort:
A hidden benefit of running an air conditioner is that it condenses moisture out of your air. When you’re running an inefficient or older system, it may not be condensing as much moisture as it could. A new AC unit maximizes the amount of moisture it draws from the air, leaving your home more comfortable.
- Improves Indoor Air Quality:
One of the challenges of older AC units is that they may contribute to poor indoor air quality. This happens because of contaminants that build up in the system and excess moisture that promotes mold and mildew growth. Depending on the age of your entire system, you may consider new ductwork, which will help improve your efficiency and further improve your air quality.
