Air Conditioning Replacements FAQs

How long do AC units last in North Carolina?

AC units in North Carolina generally have a lifespan of about 15 to 20 years. However, this can depend on several variables such as the quality of the unit, how well it's maintained, and the climate. The hot and humid summers in North Carolina put significant demands on AC systems, potentially shortening their lifespan. Regular maintenance, like cleaning or replacing filters, can extend their life, as can choosing a high-quality unit and professional installation. Monitoring your system's efficiency and consulting an HVAC expert can help determine the optimal time for replacement to ensure continued comfort and energy efficiency.

What's the best time of year to replace an AC?

The best time to replace an AC is during the shoulder seasons, which are spring and fall. These periods typically have milder temperatures, reducing the immediate urgency for cooling. In spring, you can ensure your AC is ready for the upcoming hot summer months, and in the fall, you'll have ample time to replace or upgrade the system before the colder winter weather sets in. This timing allows for more flexible scheduling with HVAC professionals, potentially shorter wait times, and sometimes even cost savings on equipment and installation due to lower demand.

Are there any rebates or tax credits available for AC installation?

Yes, rebates and tax credits can be available for AC installation, aimed at encouraging energy efficiency and reducing environmental impact. These incentives can vary significantly by location, time, and the specifics of the system being installed:

  • Federal Tax Credits: The U.S. government occasionally offers tax credits for installing energy-efficient HVAC systems. These credits can change based on federal energy policies.
  • State and Local Incentives: Many states, counties, and municipalities offer their own rebates and incentives for energy-efficient appliance installations, including air conditioners.
  • Utility Company Rebates: Some utility companies provide rebates to customers who install energy-efficient HVAC systems to reduce overall energy demand.
  • Manufacturer Rebates: HVAC manufacturers may offer seasonal rebates or promotions on certain energy-efficient models.

To find out what incentives are currently available, check with the ENERGY STAR website, your local government energy office, your utility provider, or the HVAC system manufacturer. It's also beneficial to consult with an HVAC professional who can provide up-to-date information on qualifying systems and the documentation required to apply for these incentives.

What size AC unit do I need for my home/building?

To determine the appropriate size AC unit for your home or building, you need to consider several factors. First, calculate the square footage of the area that needs to be cooled. Then, account for elements like ceiling height, number of windows and their exposure, insulation levels, and the climate in your region. Building usage and occupancy levels also play a role. Generally, you'll need around 20-30 BTUs per square foot for optimal cooling. However, it's best to have an HVAC professional conduct a thorough load calculation to ensure proper sizing and energy efficiency. Oversized or undersized units can lead to inefficient cooling and higher energy costs.

How do you know when it’s time to replace your air conditioning unit?

  • Your existing AC unit is 10-15 years old, or even older
  • Your existing air conditioner is not cooling to comfortable temperatures
  • The temperatures in your home or business are inconsistent
  • Your energy bills are high due to older, inefficient air conditioning technology
  • Repairs are costly, and your existing AC unit is no longer under warranty
  • Your needs have changed because of a recent addition to your space
