We understand that replacing your system is a costly investment, which is why we’re explaining how to determine if your system needs replacing as well as the benefits of getting your system installed with Gulfshore Air, Niceville’s #1 trusted HVAC contractor. AC Replacement 

How to Determine If You Need AC Replacement:


The average life expectancy of your AC system is roughly 10 years in Florida. Around this time, the normal wear and tear on your system will begin to set in, leaving you with higher bills, lower comfort levels, and the need for repairs. With regular preventative maintenance, your system could last 12-15 years before the normal wear and tear begins to set in. At this point, it is better to replace your system with a newer, more efficient system, rather than constantly repair an old unit. Your investment with a new system will save you tons of money.

High Energy Bills

If you have an inefficient system, your energy bills are likely through the roof. Replacing it with a high efficiency system can save you money every month. Determining the efficiency of a system is done through what’s called a SEER rating. This rating measures efficiency based on the amount of heating or cooling your system delivers per dollar spent on your electricity bill. So, a higher SEER rating means a more efficient system, and lower monthly bills. If you could be saving hundreds every year on your bills, it’s probably a good time to replace your system.

Uncomfortable Home

Getting your home to a comfortable temperature is important, especially when you live in the sunshine state. With temperatures constantly above 90 degrees in the Summer, we Floridians like to keep our homes around 72 degrees. If your system can’t keep up with cooling your home, it’s possible your unit needs replacing.

Constant Repairs

We mentioned age usually has an influence on the need for repairs to your AC system; however, any age unit that’s not quality rated, could be constantly in need of work, and is probably costing you more money than it’s worth. If you’re experiencing constant repairs, get your system checked out by a licensed professional at Gulfshore Air, and we’ll help determine the best solution for your individual needs.
