Air Conditioning Amarillo Air

Summers in the High Plains are a time to enjoy barbecues with friends and family, swim days at Lake Meredith, and Fourth of July celebrations. Even if you don't get to spend much time outdoors, at least you can be cool inside while summer daydreaming — as long as the air conditioner is working.

But what if it isn't? Don’t suffer through high temperatures or risk heat exhaustion. If your system frequently breaks down, blows warm air, or has a weak flow, it's time for a replacement. When you're on the hunt for an air conditioning installation in the Panhandle area, contact the air experts at Amarillo Air Conditioning.

Signs It’s Time for Air Conditioning Replacement

A few clear signs tell you when it’s time to replace your air conditioner. Age and frequent repairs top the list. If your unit is over 12 to 15 years old, it’s time to upgrade. Frequent repairs are a hassle, and the costs add up. If the cost of repairs equals half the cost of a new unit, consider a replacement.   

Other signs it may be time to replace your air conditioner include: 

  • Increased electricity bills
  • Odd or new noises
  • A burning smell or foul odor
  • Pooling water in the drain pan or inside the unit
  • Leaks
  • Weak airflow out of the vents
  • Lukewarm air
  • Humidity in the home
  • Frequent short cycling

Benefits of Upgrading to a New AC Unit

Advances in AC technology have come a long way since the 1990s, both in quality and efficiency. A new residential air conditioner lasts 15 to 20 years with regular maintenance. You'll also enjoy a lower electricity bill, quieter operations, and fewer repairs. The long-term benefits offset the upfront cost.

One of the biggest benefits of replacing your unit now is the rebates. ENERGY STAR appliances are more efficient and offer long-term savings. Many of them qualify you for a federal or state rebate.

Air Conditioning Units to Consider

When considering a new air conditioning system to cool your whole home, choose according to the size, orientation, exposure, and layout of your space.

As a base reference, you’ll need 23,000 BTUs for a 1400 sq ft home. Then, factor in your home’s orientation and exposure—south-facing with no shade trees means you’ll need more power. 

Finally, consider your house's layout. Not every system is right for your home's style. A high-pitch roof or lack of crawl space may rule out some options.

Here are the common types of whole-home air conditioners used in Amarillo, TX and the Panhandle areas:

Central air conditioner

Central air conditioning cools a home using supply and return ducts. Split systems consist of one indoor unit with the evaporator coils and blower and an outdoor unit with the condenser coils, compressor, and fan. A packaged system is in an outdoor unit, usually located on a roof or beside the home.

Ductless mini-split

A ductless system doesn’t use supply and return ductwork and vents. A ductless mini-split consists of an outdoor unit and an indoor unit. The ductless mini-split can cool your entire home if properly positioned.

Heat pump air conditioner

The heat pump can heat and cool your home. It pumps heat in both directions, into and out of your home. If your furnace is also nearing its last days, consider upgrading to a single unit with a heat pump air conditioner. 

Hybrid/dual fuel air conditioner

The hybrid system combines a traditional furnace with a heat pump air conditioner. This energy-efficient HVAC system is suitable for year-round use.
