How Long Do AC Units Last in Virginia?

While a typical AC unit might last 10-15 years, Virginia Beach's heat, humidity, and salty coastal air can be brutal on a system—if you are not keeping up with maintenance, the lifespan of a system can be considerably lower. That's why Climatemakers of VA offers comprehensive maintenance services designed to support a long and healthy life for your system. 

Our NATE-certified technicians proactively identify and resolve potential issues, preventing the need for costly repairs and protecting your investment. We deliver expert advice, superior installations, and maintenance plans built with Virginia Beach's climate in mind.

When Should You Replace Your Air Conditioner?

While regular maintenance can extend its lifespan, every air conditioner eventually reaches a point where replacement is the most cost-effective and sensible option. 

Here are the key signs that it may be time to upgrade your AC system:

  • Age: Air conditioners typically last 10-15 years. If yours is approaching or exceeding that age, it's nearing the end of its efficient lifespan, even if it's still functioning.
  • Frequent and costly repairs: If you're constantly calling for repairs, especially for major components like the compressor, it's time to weigh the cost of repairs against the price of a new unit. Repeated breakdowns indicate declining reliability.
  • Decreasing efficiency: Notice a steady climb in your energy bills without a corresponding increase in usage? Your AC could be losing efficiency, costing you more money to operate. Modern systems are significantly more energy efficient.
  • Inconsistent cooling and humidity: Uneven temperatures or persistent humidity problems within your home suggest that your AC may be on its last leg.
  • Outdated refrigerant (R-22): If your system still uses R-22 Freon, it needs to be replaced. R-22 has been phased out due to its environmental impact, and its cost has become prohibitive.

Replacing your air conditioner is a considerable investment. While deciding can be intimidating, you do not need to worry about making a mistake—we can give you the advice needed to make an informed decision. 

What to Consider When Choosing & Installing a New AC Unit

  • Home size and layout: An AC unit's capacity needs to be matched appropriately with the size of your home. An oversized or undersized unit can lead to inefficiency, increased energy costs, and uneven cooling. 
  • Energy efficiency: Look for units with a high seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) rating. Higher SEER ratings mean better efficiency and lower operating costs over time. 
  • Type of system: Whether you're considering a central air conditioning system, a heat pump, or ductless mini-splits, each has its benefits depending on your home's specific needs and existing setup. 
  • Budget and financing: While upfront cost can be a significant factor, considering the long-term operating costs is equally important. 
  • Installation expertise: Proper installation is critical to the longevity and efficiency of your unit. Our team can provide an error-free installation in no time. 
  • Warranty and service agreements: Be sure to read the warranty and service agreements of your new AC unit, as they can include considerable benefits (or drawbacks).

Lost? Don't worry—that's what we are here for!

Start Saving on Cooling Costs Today

Virginia Beach's summers are notoriously hot and humid. Air conditioners often need to run consistently to keep homes comfortable, which, of course, means higher utility bills. A new cooling system will make outrageous utility bills a thing of the past and start saving you money on energy costs from day one.

How Much Can I Save With a New AC Installation?

The higher the SEER of an air conditioner, the more efficient it will be. Older air conditioners typically have SEER ratings of 6 or less. In most states, central air conditioners must now have SEER ratings of at least 14. High-end central air conditioners can have SEER ratings of up to 26. Swapping out a central AC that's 10 years old for a new system with a SEER rating of at least 15 can net you energy savings of up to 40 percent.

Factors That Determine Energy Efficiency

Whether your contractor performs a Manual J load calculation during an installation can strongly impact the overall efficiency of a newly installed AC system. This measurement gives your contractor the information needed to install the right-sized system. An AC that's improperly sized can cost you a small fortune to operate. 

This calculation is integral to the process that we follow when we install a new system. In other words, you can trust us to get the job done right the first time, every time.

Save on Installation Costs without Sacrificing Quality

Our Trane specials and manufacturer's rebates can cut your AC installation costs by a wide margin. Our financing plans can be structured to fit your budget. We can also help you get state, local, and utility company incentives that are available when you purchase high-efficiency products.
