Should I repair or replace my central air conditioning?

We get that the decision to upgrade to a new central air conditioning system is a major investment in your home and the comfort of you and your family, so we want to help you to feel confident in that decision.

Here are some things to think about as you consider your options.

How old is your A/C? After 10 years of operation, a central air conditioning system will typically require increasing amounts of repairs. At this point, replacing the unit may be more cost-effective than continuing to have increasingly large repair bills. If your air conditioning system is relatively new – less than a decade old – repairing it is probably the wisest move. A general rule to follow: If the cost of air conditioning repairs is 50% or more of the replacement cost, it’s time to upgrade. 

How well has your air conditioning been maintained? Through proper maintenance, air conditioning systems can remain in optimal condition for a longer period of time and require less frequent repairs. However, even a well-maintained air conditioning system will only last for so long before it eventually wears down and fails. By upgrading your central A/C system and taking proper care of it, you can enjoy greater efficiency as well as more comfort in the long run.

How much will upgrading cost? Initially, the financial outlay and setup cost of a modern central air conditioning system might appear quite daunting. Nevertheless, due to their enhanced energy efficiency today’s A/C systems will quickly provide you with an impressive return on investment via lower energy bills.
