When is it Time to Install a New Air Conditioner?

There are some obvious and not-so-obvious reasons to replace and upgrade your air conditioning system. Of course, it goes without saying that when your AC stops working in the middle of summer, it clearly indicates something is amiss, and you need to call in a professional from Econoair.

Here are some clues that it is time to install a new air conditioner. They include the following:

  • Age of your AC unit – if your air conditioner system is ten years old or more, it may be time for replacement as maintenance, repairs, and parts become more complex and expensive.
  • Your AC runs continually – if your air conditioner cannot maintain the desired temperature, it indicates that something is underperforming or broken. If it continues to happen, repair costs may supersede replacement expenses.
  • High energy consumption – when energy bills are more excessive than usual, air conditioner malfunctions and disrepair may be the culprit. Replacing your aging AC unit is guaranteed to save you money.
  • Fluid leaks – excessive moisture build-up can lead to pooling and water damage. In addition, refrigeration leaks and worn parts are often a sign that it’s time to replace your AC.
  • R-22 Refrigerant (Freon) – older air conditioning systems that utilize freon are less environmentally friendly, and repair costs are continually increasing. New air conditioners use a refrigerant called R410A, which is incompatible with older systems.

As you can see, replacing your air conditioning system may be a better choice over ongoing repair costs. Please consult with one of our Econoair technicians about the latest developments in new air conditioners in Mississauga and our other service areas.

What is Involved With AC Installation

Our Econoair technicians not only have the expertise to assess your property and what you’ll need, but they also have the know-how to troubleshoot your building’s unique traits to create an optimal action plan for your installation.

Here are some of the main tasks we complete to ensure a seamless installation and efficient operation of your new air conditioning system.

Preparing the Space

With the latest innovations in AC units increasing their size, they also require more space than their predecessors. Therefore, we will assess and prepare the area for your new air conditioner to ensure it has enough clearance and the ground is adequately prepped and leveled for installation.  

Removing the Old AC Unit

Removing the old AC unit must be done carefully according to environmental regulations as you cannot vent refrigerant into the atmosphere. Econoair technicians will dismantle the old unit and handle the refrigerant accordingly, ensuring compliance and safety, and reducing the risk of damage.

Removing the Refrigerant

Utilizing a recovery machine and containment tank, our installation team will safely remove the refrigerant from the old air conditioning unit. Every team member must have the proper certification to handle refrigeration materials, and Econoair technicians are highly trained and qualified.

Replacing the Indoor Evaporator Coil

Where the air conditioning unit sits outside on a level pad, the indoor evaporator coil is the other half of the system typically installed in or near the furnace room. The new evaporator coil may be larger, requiring more work to install. We will help determine the best options for your new evaporator coil installation.

Removing or Reusing the Copper Refrigerant Lines

Every building is unique, and copper refrigerant lines may appear installed under the floor joists or concealed behind a wall, ceiling, or underground. If exposed and readily accessible, we recommend replacing the refrigeration lines. However, if not, it becomes necessary to flush the lines and reuse them with the new air conditioner.

Installing the New Air Conditioner

Once all the operational lines and systems have been replaced and are ready, our Econoair technicians will unpack the new AC unit and inspect it for any damages. Afterward, they will position the unit in place and begin assembling the components. Finally, we will verify everything is operating smoothly, test the system, complete our comprehensive checklist, and guarantee your satisfaction before departing.
