Should I Repair Or Replace My AC Unit

While most AC units should last 10-20 years, determining when it’s time to replace your air conditioner doesn’t only rely only on its age. Here are the steps you should take in deciding whether AC repair or replacement is the better option.

Determine the Problem

The first step in determining whether you need to repair or replace your AC is identifying the problem. Signs that you need home AC repair include:

  • Warm air or insufficient airflow
  • Water leaks around the unit
  • Frequent cycling
  • Bad smells or strange noises
  • High humidity in your home

In many cases, your AC system will only require repairs before you can enjoy cool air again. However, sometimes these symptoms are a sign that a major repair or air conditioning replacement is necessary. If your AC is over 10 years old, needs frequent repairs or is causing abnormally high energy bills, you should consider replacing your unit rather than repairing it.

Only a certified technician can tell you exactly what’s wrong with your AC unit and whether it should be repaired or replaced. Contact Express Air Conditioning and Heating if you need AC repairs in Pensacola.

Compare the Cost

A common dilemma for homeowners is when their air conditioner needs major repairs. Because some repairs are so expensive, you must decide whether the cost of repair is worth the result. If your AC is over 10 years old and the repairs cost close to the cost of replacing the system altogether, you may want to consider investing in a new system. This choice may be smarter financially than pouring money into an HVAC system that will likely break down more frequently than a new system.

Plan for the Future

A great way to be prepared for the future is to plan on getting your AC replaced as soon as 10 years after it’s installed. By being proactive you can be ready for replacement financially, and the cost of investing in a new unit when you need one won’t be such as much of a determining factor when deciding whether to repair or replace. Another way you can plan for the future is to monitor your air conditioner closely and have it serviced regularly, as this will give you a better idea of its expected lifespan.
