It can be difficult to know whether to repair or replace an air conditioning unit. When faced with an emergency situation, this problem is greatly exacerbated. Although there are no hard-and-fast rules to determine which option is best there are a few important considerations to bear in mind before you make a decision:
Age of your Air Conditioning Unit
A standard HVAC air conditioning unit lasts 10 to 15 years before it starts to run into problems. If your system is having problems and is less than 10 years old, it's usually a good idea to repair it. On the other hand, if your unit is older than 15 years you may want to replace it. Repairing an older system may only be a short-term fix, and can be more costly than investing in a new system.
Outdated Air Conditioning Unit Technology
Often times, what's considered to be cutting edge technology today becomes out dated within months! Just look at the iPhone as an example. The same is true for air conditioning technology. Depending on what you have installed, you may be able to save a significant amount of money on your utility bills by replacing old equipment with more efficient equipment.
Cost of repairs
Sometimes, repairing your system just isn't worth it. We recommend replacing a unit when repair costs exceed 50% of the cost of a new air conditioning unit. Yourair conditioner dealer is a great resource for current promotions that could significantly reduce the cost of a new system.
