How Do You Know When AC Needs Replaced?
When your Air Conditioner system breaks down, you have the choice to either repair or replace it. How many times has this happened to you? It’s time for your spring air conditioning maintenance clean and check. You’ve been doing a fantastic job remembering to change your air filter regularly as well as staying on top of all required maintenance checks, yet you’re air conditioner still breaks down in the middle of the summer.
This usually happens as the unit ages (10 to 20 Years) and the compressor has started and stopped hundreds if not thousands of times over the years. Much like the engines in your cars, as the mileage gets up there it decreases in performance and horsepower. Also much like our computers, starting and stopping is hard on these mechanical components. There comes a point when continuing to pay money out on costly repairs isn’t cutting it anymore and it may be time to consider replacement. So how do you know when you have gotten to the point of needing to replace that old inefficient unit? Knowing when to repair or replace your AC system can be a financial balancing act between spending money to repair what you already have, or investing in a completely new, more efficient, system.
We believe that its most advantageous to replace that old unit when:
- It is more than 15 years of age,
- You are recharging your air conditioner year after year,
- You are spending more than $400.00 in one year to keep that unit operating.
