Is It Time to Replace Your Central AC?
Your air conditioner is just not working the way it used to. We know that you would prefer a small repair over replacing your entire AC system. But there are some times in which replacing the air conditioner is actually the more cost-effective choice.
We just want to help you get the best deal, without having to worry about your air conditioner breaking down on the hottest, most humid of days. Call your local technicians before you make a decision (and get a second opinion if you have to). But know that an AC replacement could be a great option.
When AC Replacement Makes the Most Sense
You should always seek the opinion of a trained AC technician before you decide that replacing your air conditioner is a better choice. But here are some times when your technician is likely to recommend this option.
- When a repair would just be too expensive. Often, a repair would just be a patch until the system breaks again soon after. Replacing just a large part of your air conditioner leaves it with mismatched parts that work inefficiently. And if the repair costs about half the price of a new system, it’s just not worth it.
- When the air conditioner no longer works properly and efficiently. Are you making repairs way too often? Does your air conditioner cost a lot to run every month? An inefficient air conditioner or one that breaks down a lot may be sized improperly or just too worn down. This is especially a problem if your system is too old.
- When the air conditioner is about 10-15 years old. At this point, your air conditioner gets more and more likely to break down with each passing season. Finding a high-efficiency AC replacement will save you money from month to month anyway.
