Like any other piece of HVAC equipment, air conditioning systems have a finite lifespan and will eventually need to be replaced or upgraded. Efficiency can diminish, and parts parts will wear out. Plus, HVAC technology constantly evolves, potentially making older models obsolete. Regular maintenance can extend a system's life, but at some point, a new investment becomes necessary to ensure optimal performance and energy savings.

Our Connecticut air conditioning replacement and installation experts can assist you with many types of systems and components, including:

  • Central air systems. Central air conditioning systems circulate cool air through a system of supply and return ducts. Air handlers or blower units pull warmer air in from the building, cool it down through a refrigeration cycle, and then distribute the cooled air back into the building. It is a continuous process that ensures a reliable, comfortable indoor climate during warm weather. Many central air setups can last between 15 to 30 years. However, this lifespan can vary significantly depending on factors such as usage, maintenance frequency, and the quality of the installation.

 

  • Regular preventative maintenance, which includes tasks like cleaning and replacing filters, checking refrigerant levels, and inspecting for leaks and damage, can help extend the life of your central air conditioning system. Replacement may become necessary when your system starts to frequently break down, operate inefficiently, or show signs of excessive wear and tear. Other signs that you may need to replace your system include an increase in your energy bills or if your equipment is not cooling your spaces evenly or effectively. If your system is more than 10 years old, you should also consider its performance and efficiency ratings. Newer models are typically more energy-efficient and could provide significant savings on your energy bills. We can help you make an informed decision about whether to repair or replace your central air system.

 

  • Mini split systems. Mini-split air conditioning systems, also known as ductless systems, offer an alternative to traditional central air. These systems consist of an outdoor compressor unit and one or more indoor air handling units. They are connected by a conduit, which houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain. The system operates by transferring heat from the inside of a building to the outside environment through the refrigerant. What sets mini-split systems apart, among other things, is their capacity for individualized temperature control in different rooms, and a well-maintained mini split system can last for up to 20 years. Regular servicing, which includes cleaning filters and checking refrigerant levels, extends the lifespan of these systems. You may need to replace a mini split air conditioning system once it nears the 20-year mark and starts to suffer frequent breakdowns, a decline in performance, or excessive wear and tear. Newer models may also offer improved energy efficiency, saving you money in the long run. At Levco, our Connecticut air conditioning replacement and installation experts can help you determine whether repair or replacement is the best course of action for your mini split air conditioning system.

 

  • Air handlersAir handlers are a crucial component of HVAC systems and are responsible for circulating conditioned air throughout your home or commercial space. These units house essential components such as blowers, heating and cooling elements, filter racks, and sound attenuators. They function by drawing in air from the environment, cooling it, and then dispersing the treated air, creating a comfortable indoor climate. Typically, the lifespan of an air handler mirrors that of your HVAC system – around 15 to 20 years. However, this could vary based on factors such as the frequency and quality of maintenance, usage patterns, and the quality of the initial installation. Signs that your air handler may need replacement can range from frequent system breakdowns and reduced HVAC performance to noticeably inconsistent temperature control across various rooms. An unexpected increase in your energy bills could also imply that your air handler is working inefficiently and may need replacement. If your air handler or entire HVAC system is over 10 years old, it could be beneficial to consider an upgrade. Newer models of air handlers are designed with better energy efficiency and performance capabilities in mind.

 

  • CondensersCondensers are a critical component of HVAC systems that are responsible for releasing or collecting heat depending on the time of year. In the summer, the condenser unit releases heat absorbed from your home into the outside air. The condenser unit houses several parts, such as the condenser coil and fan, which work together to achieve this heat transfer. A condenser works by compressing the refrigerant, which is a heat-carrying medium, causing it to become hot. This high-pressure, high-temperature refrigerant then flows into the condenser coil. Here, the fan blows air over the coil, causing the refrigerant to lose its heat and cool down. As it cools, the refrigerant changes from a gas to a liquid state, ready to be used in the cooling cycle again. Most condensers last between 10 and 20 years depending on the model and other factors. Like with other HVAC elements, you may need to consider a replacement or upgrade if you are dealing with regular issues with your AC system and your condenser is more than 10 years old.

 

  • Evaporator coils. Your evaporator coil's main function is to absorb heat from your home's indoor air. This process begins when the blower fan in your HVAC system draws warm air over the coil filled with refrigerant. As the refrigerant absorbs heat from the air, it evaporates from a low-pressure liquid into a high-pressure gas. The now-cooled air is then circulated back into your home while the heated refrigerant is moved to the condenser coil, where the heat is expelled. The average evaporator coil will last 10 to 15 years or more. Consistent maintenance of your broader AC system will help extend the lifespan of this crucial component. When your cooling equipment starts to have trouble, your evaporator coil may be to blame if it is over 10 years old, meaning it may need to be replaced if repairs will not resolve the issue in the long run.
