Air conditioning units are one of the most expensive appliances that you will buy for your home. Not only are they expensive, but they also serve an important role in keeping you and your family comfortable no matter the weather. Because of this, who you choose to install a new HVAC unit is vitally important. Sky HVAC is the company for the job. We’re locally owned and operated so we understand how important the function of this particular appliance is–Charlotte weather can be extremely hot and humid!

Knowing When To Replace an AC Unit
Unfortunately, most people wait until their AC unit is completely dead before replacing it. Many times, they will try to extend the life of the appliance by calling for repeated repairs. The cost of those repairs would actually go a long way toward paying for a new unit and the installation. A common question is how to know when to replace the air conditioner. There are several signs, but the most common include:
- Age – air conditioners don’t last more than 10 years, maybe 15 years if they are well-maintained. A unit that is around this age that is in need of constant repairs should be replaced
- High electric bills – older, less efficient units will drive electric bills through the roof. Replacing an inefficient unit with one that has a SEER rating of at least 13 will save money
- Uncomfortable homes – if you just can’t seem to get your home cool enough for your liking, it is possible that your unit should be replaced
- Constant repairs – we may have mentioned constant repairs on an older unit, but an air conditioning unit that is always in need of work, no matter the age, is costing you money
Benefits of Professional AC Installation
Realizing that your AC unit needs to be replaced is the first step, but what’s next? Sure, you could order an HVAC unit online or buy one at a local hardware store, but how do you know which one is best for your home? Working with Sky HVAC can alleviate this issue and many others. We can help with:
- Finding the proper unit – the correct unit for your home might be smaller or bigger than you think. We know how to properly size air conditioners for all homes so they are effective and efficient
- Installation – given the importance and price of your air conditioner, the last thing you want is guesswork when it comes to installation. Tiny details can make a big difference in the efficiency of your unit
- Warranties – any warranty that comes with a new air conditioning unit is likely invalid if installed by someone who is not certified. Why risk it?

Frequently Asked Questions
Why won’t my air conditioner turn on?
Check your circuit breaker to make sure it hasn’t been tripped. If that doesn’t solve the problem, it could be an issue with your thermostat. A failing thermostat won’t communicate the need for the air conditioner to turn on. Call the experts at Sky HVAC for fast, affordable AC repairs, 24-7!
What do I do if my air conditioner is leaking water?
If your AC is leaking inside the home, it could be a clogged condensate drain line, a dirty air filter or low refrigerant that is causing your evaporator coil to freeze then melt, or an old drain pan. Contact Sky HVAC for a maintenance visit.
Why is my air conditioner not cooling?
Typically, a cooling issue means there is a problem with the control board. If the issue isn’t there, it could be a problem with your refrigerant. In either situation, a licensed contractor needs to be involved. Refrigerant is hazardous and shouldn’t be handled by anyone other than an EPA-certified technician. Sky HVAC can help!
