As a general rule of thumb, your residential air conditioning system may be up for replacement if it’s been 10-15 years since it was installed. And a heat pump will last about 15 years. This, of course, varies depending on the efficiency of the unit and if it was sized correctly for your home, the manufacturer, how it was installed, how AC repairs were handled, what area of the country you live in, and how consistently it was maintained (new filters, calibration, cleaning, etc.).

Home AC Unit Install FAQs
A standard central air conditioning unit replacement can range from $5,000 to $12,000 on average near Atlanta, GA.
The cost to replace a home air conditioning unit in and around Atlanta can vary depending on a number of factors such as:
- The type of unit
- Its size
- The complexity of the installation and the location of the unit
However, the cost can go up or down depending on the size of your home, the type of unit you choose, any additional ductwork or electrical work required, and whether you choose a standard or high-efficiency AC unit.
The size of AC unit you need for your Atlanta area home depends on a number of factors:
- The square footage of your home.
- The number of rooms.
- The amount of insulation in your home.
- The number of windows and their orientation.
Purchasing an AC system that’s too small for your home will lead to frustrated attempts at achieving ideal temperature, running non-stop and failing to give an even cooling throughout your home.
Purchasing an AC system that’s too large for your home could lead to a cycle of overworking and wear on the system. The unit will turn on quickly in order to lower the temperature, but then shut off again shortly after - causing added strain as this process happens multiple times throughout each day.
Not long! Once you decide to install a new air conditioner or heat pump, we can generally remove the old system, place the new one, hook up the wiring and ductwork, test and calibrate the controls, and have you up and running again in a single day.
So don’t bother booking a hotel room! Getting on our calendar is easy because we have a team of technicians that do this type of work all day, every day. We show up first thing in the morning and don’t leave until the job is done.
There shouldn’t be! Our HVAC technicians are conscientious about your home and wear shoe covers when they are indoors (so don’t even think about muddy boots sloshing up your stairs and across your carpets)! We stock our trucks with drop cloths, coveralls (for working in dirty attics and crawlspaces), brooms, dustpans, garbage bags…you get the idea.
When we install a new AC, we take away all of the packaging, the old equipment, and any debris created by the job. You’re left with your new unit, the instruction manuals, and a cool home (unless you just really want to keep that old broken air-conditioner as a souvenir)!
We always do a final walk-through on every job just to make sure everything looks good and that we haven’t left any loose ends.
When Do You Need to Replace an AC Unit?
You definitely need an HVAC repair technician when you experience the following, but keep in mind that any of these “signs” could also point toward needing a new unit:
- Making sounds
- Uneven cooling
- Icing up
- Increasing utility and energy bill
- Water leaks
- Oily residue (on unit components)
- Thermostat reads lower than actual temperature
The Efficiency of a New Cooling System
Older AC systems cost more to run, adding up to yearly expenses that just don’t make sense. Replacing your air-conditioning system with a newer high-efficiency one can reduce your monthly cooling bill by up to 50 percent, which means your equipment will “pay for itself” in a matter of time. Meanwhile, you’ll be enjoying complete temperature control, a quieter system operation, and increased indoor comfort.
We’ll make sure you get an AC unit or heat pump with a S.E.E.R. rating and output that makes sense for the size of your home, so you’re not paying for energy you can’t use or feeling the heat for a lack of it.
