Here in Springfield, those warmer months can be brutal. There’s nothing like walking into your home to be welcomed by the comforting, cool air of your air conditioner unit. This particular system of our home may go out of sight and out of mind, but if something were to go wrong with this part of our home, we’d notice it instantly.

With the summer months quickly approaching, it’s time to start preparing for the heat that will inevitably come. One of those factors that you need to be keeping an eye on is your air conditioner unit.

In today’s blog post, the team at Queen City Heating & Cooling is going to cover a few of the reasons that you should consider replacing your air conditioner unit. Of course, this isn’t something that everyone needs to do. But, if it has been some time that you’ve had this particular unit or you can’t even remember when the unit was installed, this blog could definitely provide some insight on if it’s time to invest in your next unit. Let’s get started.

Unit Improvements

As with any piece of equipment, the style, efficiency, and functionality of air conditioner units have improved significantly over the years. If your unit is over ten years old, you can guarantee there have been some pretty big changes made that can affect the experience that you’re having with your unit. Overall, this factor alone causes a ripple effect that will play into a few of the points that we’ll be covering later on in the blog post.


For the last decade or so, efficiency has been a huge focus for homeowners and the overall functionality of homes. There have been various upgrades and advancements made in regard to the materials and design of countless counterparts of the home, one of them being the air conditioner unit. Given that this is a staple part of most homes, efficiency and energy consumption are something that has now been considered with the design of air conditioner units, and we’ve seen these advancements yield successful results.

If your air conditioner unit is currently racking up the energy bills or constantly turning on and off, you absolutely want to look into replacing your unit with a newer model. With the improvement in efficiency, you can guarantee you’ll enjoy some of the updates that have been made to air conditioner units.

Avoid Constant Repairs

An easy-to-read sign that it’s time to replace your AC unit is when you are constantly having to repair the unit. Of course, when you’re able to choose a repair over a full-blown replacement — do that! Unfortunately, this isn’t always going to be the case. Over time, frequent repairs can become more expensive than a unit replacement. If this feels like it might be the case for you and your AC unit, speaking with a professional could help determine if replacement is the right choice.
