Signs You Need a New Air Conditioning System

Signs You Need a New Air Conditioning System

Not only can we, as experts in air conditioning installation in the Gold Coast area, help you choose the right air conditioner for your home or office, we also maintain and repair your air conditioner.

If you pay attention to your unit, you’ll know when there is something going on that indicates a problem. If you notice any of the following issues, Custom Air Industries can help.

Old Age

If your Gold Coast air conditioner is more than 10 years old, the best option is to replace the system rather than pay to have it repaired.

Most air conditioners are designed to last up to 15 years, but sometimes a new unit is less costly than fixing problems with an existing one – especially if it’s already quite old in A/C terms.


If you notice your air conditioner isn’t doing a good job of cooling your home or office, this indicates you’ll need repairs or a replacement.

An inefficient air conditioner can also cost you more because it will have to work harder to properly cool your space, which will result in higher energy bills.

Sometimes, the issue can be repaired and other times you may need to look into what new air conditioning installation Gold Coast experts can provide.

Frequent Breakdowns

An occasional breakdown can be fixed, and you can probably get a few more years out of your air conditioner.

However, if it does so frequently, it might be time to purchase a new unit.

If you have had to call in the pros to maintain or repair your air conditioning fairly often in the last few months, a new air conditioner may a cheaper solution in the long run.

It Uses Freon

In many places Freon refrigerant is being phased out of usage in air conditioners. If you have a model that still uses it, it could be time to get a new unit.

Eventually, all units may need to switch to the new refrigerant so now could be a good time before you put any more time and money into your existing air conditioner.

Strange Noises or Smells

If you notice your air conditioner smells funny or starts making strange sounds, it’s probably time to replace it.

These noises or smells likely indicate faulty mechanisms, which could be expensive to replace.

Sometimes, buying new will cost you less over time than continuing to repair the existing air conditioner.
