Sterling AC Installation & Replacement

Finding the Best AC for Your Fairfax County or Loudoun County Home

The summers in Virginia can be brutal and the constant use of AC can take a toll on your equipment. At Cardinal Heating & Cooling, our services aren't limited to expert AC repairs. We also provide new installation and replacement services to help improve your indoor air quality and comfort. If your system is 10-15 years old and your home is in need of a new air conditioner, we can work with you to find a replacement unit for you. We are focused on finding a system that is the right size to meet your cooling needs and your budget.

Signs You Need to Replace Your AC

Knowing when it's time to stop scheduling repairs for your air conditioner and buy a brand new unit can be tricky. The up-front cost of a replacement is notably higher than any repair, but comparing that price tag to a single service doesn't paint an accurate picture – you have to factor in the long-term savings of fewer repairs and higher energy efficiency cutting back on utility bills. At a certain point, buying a new air conditioner could save you a lot of money. Some signs that you should start considering a replacement include:

  • Age: Air conditioners typically last anywhere from 10 to 20 years depending on how well they've been maintained. Once your unit gets up there in years, you should start looking at new models.
  • Rising utility bills: If you notice that your utility bills are noticeably higher while running your AC unit than they have been in years past, there's a good chance that your system is starting to break down. Not only are new units designed to run far more efficiently, their parts also aren't worn down from years of use.
  • Water leaks: While your air conditioner will likely gather condensation on the part that's exposed to outside air, it should never drip inside your home. This could be caused by a refrigerant leak, which needs to be addressed immediately.
  • Inability to keep your home cool: If your AC is struggling to keep your home as cool as it had in the past, then there's a good chance that it's aging out and either needs substantive repairs or a complete replacement.
  • Strange noises: If you ever hear banging, grinding, screeching, or other unusual noises coming from your air conditioner, turn it off immediately and call a technician. This is likely a sign that a major component is broken and needs to be looked at.
