Air-conditioning units get put under a lot of pressure to keep you cool during hot summers. Air-conditioning units can be very reliable, however, basic repairs to units need to be made as they endure wear and tear.
Here are some telltale signs that it may be time to have a new air-conditioning unit installed.
It’s More Than 10 Years Old:
Air-conditioning systems are rather reliable and can run for a long time, but if your unit is more than 10 years old, then it may be time to replace the system with something a bit more modern.
It’s Getting Expensive:
These days, certain systems, especially those with the EnergyStar logo, can help reduce your energy consumption while the air-conditioning is running, saving you money on electric bills. Older air-conditioning systems are typically not designed with energy efficiency in mind, so you might see energy bills increase as time goes on. Replacement units put an end to this rising trend.
Your Air-Conditioning Unit is Noisy:
Modern systems are rather quiet, so if you find yourself distracted by the noise of your air-conditioning, then you should consider upgrading to a newer model.
Some Rooms Are Too Hot:
If some rooms in your home are too hot, then your air-conditioning unit is not performing correctly. Having an air-conditioning technician on-hand to help you install a new system will ensure that all rooms of your house are evenly and comfortably cooled.
You Have Humidity Problems:
Older units with leaky ductwork can humidify the air during the summer. Your air-conditioning unit is there to make your home cool, dry, and comfortable. If your AC is making the walls sweat, then it’s time for a replacement.

Most of us recognize the risks of air pollution outside of our homes, but the hidden dangers inside our homes can be even more detrimental, according to this video.
Dusts, pollens, toxic fumes, and radiation can be two to five times more concentrated inside and, in the most serious cases, can lead to health problems, including cancer.
If you should ever smell an unusual mildew or moldy odor, then it’s time to investigate. Don’t simply cover it up with air freshener, as this will only mask the problem. Instead, purchase carbon monoxide detectors and radon detector kits, which will detect poisonous gases and radon levels in your home, helping to prevent lung cancer.

“It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity!” Living in Chester and Delaware County and all the fun weather effects that they provide. In the summer, this means massive amounts of moisture in the air, resulting in uncomfortably sticky and hot days.
The human body regulates its temperature through evaporation: You get hot, and then you get sweaty. When sweat evaporates from your skin, its temperature falls, producing a nifty cooling effect. But when it’s really humid outside, evaporation isn’t possible, and now you’re hot and sweaty.
There are a few ways you can keep your cool in the stuffy heat of summertime.
1. Stay indoors. This may sound like an easy one, but utilizing an air-conditioned house or having A/C in the workplace not only regulates humidity, but of course cools your ambient air temperature. Consider an A/C installation if you don’t have one.
2. Keep hot stuff outside of you. Having a cool glass of water is a great way to lower your internal temperature. Avoid hot food, and stick to salads, sandwiches and moisture-rich fruits. Athletic drinks can help replenish your electrolyte balance, too.
3. Keep your air conditioning in working condition. If you need air conditioner repair, then make sure you know before summer hits, and if your A/C is aged, then think about a new air conditioning system.
4. Heat-proof your house. Ensure that your weather stripping is in good condition, or consider having your house professionally weather-sealed. This increases the energy efficiency in your home and keeps cool air inside.
5. Keep outdoor activity limited to the evenings or early morning. Avoid the hottest part of the afternoon, especially when the humidity ramps up and makes being outside the least fun you’ll ever have. If you can’t avoid being outside, then seek shelter for a quick break and a cool-down in an air-conditioned environment before heading back into the heat.
