How To Know It’s Time For A New Air Conditioning Installation?

The Unit Needs Constant Repairs
If your air conditioner needs repairs often and the cost of fixing it is becoming expensive, it might be more cost-effective to invest in a new system.

Your HVAC Unit Is More Than 10 – 15 Years Old
Air conditioning installations typically have a lifespan of around 10-15 years. If your AC is nearing or over this age, it may be time for a replacement. Older air conditioning units tend to become less efficient and reliable.

A Noticeable Decline In Performance
Is your air conditioner is no longer cooling your home as effectively as it used to? Is it struggling to maintain consistent temperatures? This could be a sign of a failing air conditioning unit.

Your Energy Bill Is Higher Than It Used To Be
An inefficient air conditioning installation can lead to higher energy bills. If you notice a significant increase in your energy costs, it may be due to an aging or inefficient AC unit. Replacing your unit could save your family a lot.

Unusual And Excessive Noises
Are there new unusual and loud noises coming from your air conditioner? This could be grinding, rattling, or screeching sounds. This could show mechanical issues that might warrant a replacement.

Drawbacks Of Not Replacing Your Air Conditioner?

A Lack Of Humidity Control
An air conditioner that fails to control indoor humidity levels can lead to problems. This includes discomfort and potential mold growth. If your air conditioning installation struggles with humidity control, it may be time for an upgrade.

Unpleasant Odors Coming From The Unit
Persistent musty or unpleasant odors coming from your air conditioner could mean mold growth. There might be other issues within the unit, which may need replacement.

Airflow is Less Consistent
Uneven distribution of cool air throughout your home could mean problems. These problems could be with the ductwork or an undersized AC system. The issues could mean you need a new, appropriately sized ac unit.

Risks To Health And Safety
If your AC is releasing substances like refrigerant leaks or carbon monoxide, it has the potential to cause health risks. Replacing the unit becomes a top priority for the well-being of your family.

Learn About Our Process For Air Conditioning Installation

We inspect the current AC unit, check your home’s size and layout, test ductwork, and discuss your preferences and budget. Based on this, we help you select a new unit that suits your needs.

Permits might be required for replacing your AC unit. This varies depending on the state and local regulations. We will handle the whole permit application process so you don’t have to.

We will disconnect and remove the old air conditioning unit. We make sure to dispose of any refrigerants safely. We will prepare the installation area. We may need to clean, level the ground, or modify the existing platform for your new unit.

The new air conditioning unit will be carefully positioned and secured in place. We will connect the unit to the ductwork, electrical supply, and thermostat. Refrigerant lines will be connected, and the system will be checked for any leaks.

We will test the new air conditioning system to ensure all components are functioning correctly. We will verify that the airflow is balanced and that there are no blockages or leaks in the ductwork. We will calibrate the thermostat and adjust settings for optimal performance.

A final inspection will be conducted to ensure everything meets safety and quality standards. We will show the tenants how to use the new unit. The installation area will be cleaned up, leaving your home tidy.

Old Line has been to our house a few times, most recently they discovered we had duct issues. The repair was faster than they originally thought and now not even 24hrs later it is feeling much better in our home. Can’t say enough good things.
STEPHANIE WOLF

My wife contacted them. They came out very professional and we decided on a new unit. Price was very fair. We already had estimates. One week later unit was installed and now very comfortable. Excellent communication, professional and fair prices.
