Reasons You Should Upgrade to the Lennox Elite Series XC14 Air Conditioner

Posted: 2023-07-18

If you find yourself uncomfortable in your home despite running your air conditioner, you may be faced with the decision of whether to repair or replace it. This is especially true if your AC unit is old and exhibiting unusual behavior.

Typically, when air conditioners reach their 10th year of service, they start to show signs of declining performance. Older AC units tend to consume excessive energy due to aged components and the lack of advanced technology for power reduction. If you're noticing a consistent increase in your utility bills, it may be more sensible to invest in a new air conditioner rather than trying to revive a failing unit.

Aside from cooling your home, your air conditioner also plays a role in regulating humidity. The evaporator coil in your cooling system condenses water vapor from the air, a process you may have observed when condensation forms on the outside of a glass containing a cold drink. Similarly, when hot and humid air in your home comes into contact with the cold evaporator coil, the moisture is condensed out of the air, reducing indoor humidity. The collected moisture is then drained away from your home.

However, if you often experience a sticky feeling indoors while your AC is running, it could indicate that the dehumidification aspect of your air conditioner is not functioning properly. In such cases, your AC may be ineffective or the incorrect size for your home.
