How Do You Know When to Replace Your Air Conditioner?
Air conditioning replacement or repair? That is the question. With air conditioning units, it can sometimes be difficult to assess their condition and it can also be difficult to know when it is time to replace or time for air conditioning repair.
We recommend looking at the following factors:
- Age of AC Unit: Most air conditioners have a lifespan of 10-15 years. If your unit is around this age or it requires frequent repairs, it might be time to consider replacement. The older the air conditioner is, the more likely it is to have problems such as reduced performance, costly repairs, and be less energy efficient.
- Frequency of Repairs: If your unit is in constant need of repair, this can also be a sign that it is time to get a new unit. High-energy bills and mix-matched parts can also be signs that you are in need of a new unit.
- Compare Costs: How much more would it be to purchase a unit? If you would not have to pay much more to purchase a brand new unit then it may not be worth fixing. Ultimately, the decision is up to you and weighing the costs is the only way that you will come to a conclusive answer.
Taxes: Sometimes a full replacement provides homeowners with beneficial tax incentives. If you upgrade to a unit that’s more energy efficient, you may qualify for saving a lot of money both on energy bills and taxes.
Ecological Concerns: A full unit replacement can help you upgrade to a unit that is more energy efficient, causing your home to have a smaller carbon footprint.
Prevent Breakdowns with Standard AC Maintenance
Many systems are neither old nor brand new and perfectly efficient. Some air conditioning units and heating systems run perfectly for your household and have never broken down. However, each unit needs routine maintenance to ensure optimal performance and affordable energy efficiency. Routine maintenance is one of the best ways to catch issues when they just need to be repaired – not replaced, saving you time and money.
Air Conditioning Repair vs. Replacement?
There are many factors that determine whether replacement or repair of your home’s cooling system is the right choice, but it’s best to speak with an HVAC professional to understand what your unit can do and what your home truly needs. Remember, a replacement could be a good option if you are planning on saving energy within the next few years, but repair could be a good option if your unit isn’t old.
Your decision to repair or replace your air conditioning unit depends on how much and how frequently you will be using your system in the next few years, as well as what you determine your needs will be financially.
