Mechanical Services TechnicianHow Often Does a Commercial AC Unit Need to Be Replaced?

The longevity of your cooling equipment varies fairly considerably based on a range of factors. These can include the size and scope of the system, how frequently the equipment is run, and most importantly, the type of system being used. As a general rule of thumb, it’s best to start thinking about replacement after roughly a decade of service, though systems can often run 15-20 years if they are properly maintained.

It’s best to stay in close contact with a trustworthy local contractor in order to understand when replacement suits your needs best. Choosing to replace at the right time can save you a lot of money and headache.

Signs That It’s Time for Commercial AC Replacement

Failing equipment often displays very clear signs that there’s a problem. Some are more obvious, such as consistent breakdowns, but many are more vague, including:

  • Higher energy costs. Often your first tipoff that something is going south with your system, increased monthly energy costs indicate that the system is working harder than it needs to, meaning either it’s time to consider replacement, or you haven’t been keeping up with maintenance and will need repairs.
  • High humidity in your workplace. An effective cooling system removes a noticeable amount of humidity, helping protect the health of clients and employees as well as keeping equipment safe.
  • Reduced cooling effectiveness. Weak air flow, uneven cooling, and warm air are all big signs that your system is beginning to fall behind.
  • Consistent need for repairs. While a one-off repair is nothing to fuss over necessarily, needing two or three repair services per season becomes a massive financial drain that is better avoided by replacing the AC system.
  • Increased maintenance costs. Outdated cooling equipment or systems that continue to use lower-tier refrigerants (R-22) become increasingly difficult and costly to maintain.
