Benefits of AC Replacement for Your Home in Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky
AC systems are an extremely effective way to cool your home, so it’s important to keep them operating at peak performance. By enrolling in our HELP Club, our technicians will take the guesswork out of your system’s life span by providing regular tune-ups and repair. If your system isn’t working properly and needs to be replaced, our pros can get it done quickly. Once your new system is installed, our technicians can perform annual tune-ups to ensure:
Fewer system breakdowns: With regular tune-ups and cleaning, normal wear and tear on your AC system will be addressed before it has the chance to escalate into larger system problems.
Lower costs and more savings: Because routine AC repairs prevent breakdowns and promote energy efficiency, homeowners can save on two fronts — avoiding replacement costs and lowering monthly energy bills.
Longer-lasting systems: With fewer breakdowns and repairs over the years, your AC system will typically last much longer, possibly for years longer than if it were poorly maintained.
Signs Your AC System Needs Replacement
If you think your AC system isn’t performing quite as well as it should, you may need AC replacement services. There are some telltale signs you have a broken air conditioner on your hands, including:
Your air is not blowing cold. If your system is working overtime to keep your temperatures comfortable, this could mean your system is leaking refrigerant, has condenser issues, or has a leaky duct.
Your airflow is poor. If your system’s fan is having problems pushing cool air through the ductwork, the issue could range from a dirty air filter to a bad motor or even a faulty fan control board.
Your AC is making strange noises. AC systems are designed to run quietly, so if you hear odd noises, it’s a sure sign that things are amiss. Screeching, grinding, or banging noises can indicate a problem inside the unit (such as a broken component, loose belts, or general debris).
Your AC system is producing strange smells. There are several reasons for bad smells emanating from your AC system, from pest infiltration to burned-out wire insulation or even mold growth. These issues should be dealt with quickly, as they could impact the health of everyone in your home.
Your thermostat reading is wrong. Sometimes the problem is with your thermostat rather than your system. If your home’s temperature vastly differs from your thermostat reading, contact one of our cooling experts to have your thermostat looked at.
Your energy bill is higher than usual. While your utility bill will vary and often increase in the warmer months, you shouldn’t see a huge, unexplainable leap in costs. If your energy bill has spiked from one season to the next, this is a good indicator that you should have things checked out by an expert.
Your system is short-cycling. If your AC is continuously starting up, running briefly, and then shutting down, your system is short-cycling. There are various reasons this could be happening, and sometimes the solution is as easy as replacing your filter. It’s recommended that homeowners replace their air filter every three months. If this doesn’t solve the problem, seek help from the professionals.

Most air conditioning systems will last about 12 to 15 years, though some can last up to 20 years with consistent AC maintenance. To make your AC unit last as long as possible, check the air filter monthly and replace it when it looks dirty or clogged. Keep the area around the outdoor condenser unit free of debris, and repair any AC problems as soon as you spot them to avoid additional system damage.
Should I repair or replace my air conditioning system?
If your air conditioner is less than a decade old, and the required repairs are all something minor, like contactor or thermostat replacements, AC repairs are almost always the best option. If your air conditioner is older than 10 years, is starting to have frequent problems, needs costly repairs like a compressor replacement, or is inefficient and costly to operate, it may be time to consider a new AC installation for your Cincinnati home.
Can I replace the condenser unit and evaporator separately?
If you have a problem with just one of the coils, replacing that half of the system can save some money. But it can be difficult to find components that perfectly match the old AC unit as far as capacity, features, and type of refrigerant. Plus, your AC would almost always have reduced efficiency compared to a new air conditioner with matching components.
Why should I choose a high-efficiency air conditioner?
Although you may spend more upfront for a highly efficient air conditioner with a SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) of 18 or higher, it will cost less to operate over its lifetime than a standard 14 SEER model. Additionally, you may enjoy added benefits like quieter operation due to variable-speed fans, improved air quality due to slower, more constant filtration, and improved comfort as the system can adjust better to changing cooling loads.
