When is it Time to Replace Your Commercial Air Conditioner

Commercial air conditioners are very sturdy systems, but they are not invincible. Sooner or later, you’re going to replace yours. When the time comes to replace your commercial air conditioner, it pays to be able to recognize the signs. You don’t want your first warning to be when the whole system breaks down on you. The sooner you can recognize when you need a commercial air conditioner, the better off you’ll be. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the signs that it’s time to replace your commercial air conditioner.

Loss of Efficiency

This is the most obvious sign that your air conditioning system is failing. Years of accumulated wear and tear contribute to a loss in efficiency for the air conditioner. This manifests as longer operating times and higher operating costs. If you notice that your commercial air conditioner seems to be becoming less and less able to keep up with demand, then it might be time to replace it.

Rise in Repairs

Typically, you shouldn’t need to have your air conditioning system repaired more than once or twice a year, if that. In older systems, though, worn out parts tend to fail in groups. If you find yourself having to have your system repaired every few months, it means that your system needs to be replaced.


Commercial air conditioning systems tend to last between 15 and 20 years. Though some can last past that point, most do not. If your air conditioning system is older than 20 years, especially if it’s having problems like those listed above, then it is probably a good idea to replace it with a newer system.
