With proper maintenance and dedicated efforts of highly-skilled HVAC contractors, an aging air conditioner will slowly start to show its age. If your unit is nearing its life expectancy, you might want to consider a replacement as an alternative to costly repairs.
When deciding between an air conditioning repair or a replacement, homeowners should consider if their cooling needs are being addressed by their current unit:
- Is my air conditioner unit loud?
- Do I notice inconsistent temperatures and fluctuations in my home?
- Is the AC cooling my house as I expect it should?
- Why are my energy bills higher than my neighbor’s house with similar square footage?
If a repair is necessary, you should choose a repair cost cutoff point. How expensive does an air conditioner repair need to be before it’s worth it to upgrade to a new system? The long-term utility bill savings of purchasing a higher efficiency air condition system may outweigh the price of a series of costly repairs.
