Beating the Tampa heat can be difficult, but with a properly functioning A/C system, you will have a cool escape. We know it can be hard to determine when it’s time to replace your A/C system. Our Red Cap Family will help you determine when it’s time for a system replacement. Keep reading to discover what signs to look out for!

Changes In Square Footage

Choosing the correct system for your home will depend on the square footage of your space. Whether you are replacing your existing system, adding on to your home, or finishing off an existing space, your unit may no longer be able to adequately cool your home. This is the perfect opportunity to speak to a professional regarding the size of your system and see if an upgrade is needed.

Fluctuations In Indoor Humidity

Air conditioning units are designed to not only cool down your space but remove excess humidity from indoor air. Humidity is a common issue in Florida and it should be left OUTSIDE! If your system begins to operate inefficiently, it may be unable to remove humidity from the air. Common signs that your air conditioning system is beginning to malfunction are new mold spores in your home, moisture around your windows, or an overall muggy feeling.

Higher Utility Bills

If you begin to notice your utility bills taking a steady increase, it is a clear sign that your A/C system is no longer performing at peak efficiency. The best way to detect a rise in utility bills is to compare bills in the same months from prior years. There will always be factors such as utility providers raising prices and hotter than average summers. However, if you see an increase in your bills that aren’t attributed to either factor, then a faulty system is at play and it is most likely time to replace your system.
