AC Repair or AC Replacement?
If your air conditioner breaks down, you’ll have an important question to answer: should you repair the system or replace it completely? This isn’t always an easy question to answer, and everyone’s situation is unique. Obviously if your system is still under warranty, you should have it repaired as it more than likely won’t cost you anything out of pocket. But if not, you’ll need to keep a few extra things in mind.
Here are a few different factors that could influence whether you should repair or replace:
- Repair cost: How much will repairing the problem cost? If a repair is a significant expense, you may be better off simply replacing your system.
- System age: How old is your air conditioner? The older it gets, the more likely it is that you should simply replace it. The average air conditioner lasts up to around 12 years on average, and 15 years if you maintain it regularly.
- System features: Does your system have energy monitoring, smart home connectivity, zoning, or variable fan speeds? Modern units do, and you can enjoy them too by replacing!
- Energy usage: Do you dread your energy bills over the summer months? Older systems consume far more energy. If your system is one of them, you may want to simply replace it and save.
- Operating components: Does your system run on outdated technology, such as R-22 Freon? Older parts may no longer be manufactured, which means you may have to update to get your system working again!
Chesapeake AC Maintenance
Fewer than half of Chesapeake homeowners who own AC systems get them serviced regularly. Regular AC maintenance is as important as regular maintenance on your vehicle and should not be skipped.
Benefits of regular air conditioner maintenance:
- Better Performance - The longer your AC system goes without service, the dirtier and more run down it gets. A regular inspection and cleaning will make your air conditioner last longer and cool your home more quickly.
- Increased Efficiency - Changing some of the machine’s parts can make it more energy efficient. A grille change, for example, can be done properly by a professional and have the desired effects. Regularly maintained appliances also have higher energy efficiency ratings, saving you money on utilities.
- Compliance - Leaks develop in the system can be hard to detect without professional knowledge. When a professional HVAC company performs an AC maintenance service, they can detect and fix any leaks, as well as repair it using and deposing of refrigerants as required by law.
