Air Conditioning Installation and Replacement
Should You Repair Or Replace Your AC Unit?
This question is a tough question for homeowners to answer: “Should I repair or replace my air conditioner?” It’s tough to answer because you’re not sure if the timing is right yet. You’re worried if you replace it too early, you may be paying for an appliance when you don’t need to. But if you repair it, and it dies a year later, then you would have wasted your money. You’re not the only one wondering what the right choice is. However, the answer is more complex than you’d think. The first thing to keep in mind is that over time, your air conditioning unit loses efficiency. Costing more money and becoming more prone to unexpected breakdowns.
Here’s the truth, there is no one single reason to replace your air conditioner. It depends on several different factors, here are 5 things to consider when deciding if you should repair or replace:
- Your Air Conditioners Age
According to energy.gov the average “lifespan” of a central air conditioner is about 15 to 20 years. So, if your air conditioner is past its prime; it may not be worth repairing considering the frequency of repairs will often increase as your unit ages.
- Frequency of Repairs
Did you need to repair your air conditioner this past year? What about the year before that? Needing a major repair on an air conditioner within a 2 year period is too frequent. This is often an indicator that your unit could become a “money pit” as time goes on. Especially if your unit has not been properly maintained.
- Energy bills are Too High
Over time an air conditioner becomes less efficient. So, even if your unit is old and fully functioning, your cooling costs could be outrageous. Therefore it may be prudent to consider investing in a new unit—especially if your current one is much older.
- Home Comfort
If your air conditioner just isn’t meeting your comfort needs, then don’t feel bad not wanting to repair it! Invest in a newer more energy-efficient air conditioner. You’ll be glad you did.
- Expired Warranty & Major Part Repair
If a major part (like the compressor) fails and the air conditioner’s warranty has expired, you could find yourself stuck with a costly repair bill. The older your air conditioning unit is, the less likely you’ll want to sink the money into a new compressor. Especially if the warranty has already expired.
Have you been sweating it out in the Summer heat? Do you dream of coming through the door after a long day; to the sweet relief of cool air greeting you when you enter your home?
You’ve decided you might be ready to take the plunge and invest in a new energy-efficient air conditioner. But, you’re not quite sure where to begin.
Don’t worry, we understand that trying to figure all of this out by yourself can be complicated, leaving you with a sizeable headache. Our expert team is ready to assist! With sound advice and honest technicians; who can help you decide if your unit is repairable or in need of replacement.
