Your Air Conditioner: Should you REPAIR or REPLACE it?

We’re less than a week until Memorial Day! This day marks that which many of us consider the beginning of “summer”, even though “technically” this year it doesn’t come until the end of June. With the changing of seasons already upon, you’ve definitely begun to think about your home air conditioning. So the question is: Is your unit in good shape? Or is it possibly time for that air conditioner replacement?

Whether you’re hosting a graduation party, a baby shower, or a birthday party, you want to make sure that your home is cool and comfortable for your the real question for you is:

Should you REPAIR or REPLACE your AC?

Here’s one way to find out: answer our 5 questions about your air conditioner:

  1. Is your system older than 12 years?
  1. Does your system have extensive damage? (Ex. Problems with the motor, compressor or coils)
  1. Would the cost of your repairs be greater than ½ price of a new unit?
  1. Have you had 3 or more major repairs on your unit?
  1. Does your unit fail to meet proper efficiency standards? (>10 EER rating or >13 SEER rating)

If you answered “yes” to more than 1 of these questions, then it’s time to seriously consider replacing your unit rather than repairing it. In the long run, it’s going to save you a lot more time because you will be using a more effective and efficient unit.
