When you feel uncomfortable in your home despite running an AC, you may be wondering whether to have it repaired or just go ahead and replace it altogether. This is especially true if your air conditioner is old and has been acting weird lately.

Typically, when air conditioners reach their 10th year of service, they start to show signs of decline in performance. Depending on usage and your location, old AC units are highly likely to consume excessive amounts of energy since they operate with aged parts and lack the advanced technology to reduce power usage. If you notice a constant increase in your utility bills, getting a new air conditioner would make more sense than trying to revive a dying unit.

In addition to providing cool air for your home, your air conditioner is also responsible for regulating the humidity in your house. Your cooling system has an evaporator coil that condenses water vapor from the air, in a process that you may have seen when condensation appears on the outside of a glass that contains a cold drink. The same process happens when hot, humid air in your home comes in contact with your AC’s cold evaporator coil. The liquid is then condensed out of the air, reducing the humidity in your home. Finally, the moisture collected by the evaporator coil goes to an outside drain, taking it away from your home.

Now, if you often have that sticky feeling when you’re at home while your AC is running, it could mean that it is unable to do the dehumidification part of its job. If this is the case, it could be that your air conditioner is ineffective or is not the proper size for your home.
