AC Repair vs AC Replacement

If your unit isn’t used for even a decade and it’s not working properly, you may not want to replace your unit before at least trying a few repairs on it. While a repair can be less expensive in the short-term, after some time, they may cost you more when they add up. If you are wondering when you need a repair only or when you already need a replacement you can read below the list of suggestions for that.

Unit is nearing the ten year mark

If your air conditioner is close to ten years old, it is time to start shopping around for a replacement. Over time, the cost of many repairs on older systems can be more costly than buying a new unit.

Unit sustained minor damage to an internal part

If only a part of the unit is broken, it’s easy to replace that part and you won’t have to replace the whole unit. If your AC unit is relatively young and the problem is minor, having it repaired will be affordable to you and you may still be able to use the AC unit for a few more years.

Unit is leaking refrigerant

If your air conditioning unit is leaking any type of liquid, especially refrigerant, it’s a bad sign. Often, when an air conditioner is leaking, it’s more cost effective to replace it than to repair it.

Unit needs a new compressor

Perhaps the most expensive air conditioner repair is the replacement of the compressor. In some instances, like when an AC unit is quite old, purchasing a new one may end up being the more affordable option versus making repairs.

Recently added more space to your home

If there was some modification done to your home, you may need to replace your unit to meet the new requirements. When you have more space to cool, a smaller unit may not be able to handle it, so it’s important to have equipment that matches the needs of your home and its space. An expert can quantify your home and survey what AC trade unit would be best for the new space.

Unit not cooling the house to your preferences

Your unit itself could be the one to blame when you have problems with indoor temperatures, but sometimes the problem may be caused by vents, ductwork or insulation issues. Before running out to buy a new unit, it would be wise to have a professional check it out and see whether it’s really the source of the problem.

What types of AC units are available today?

Chances are, replacing your AC unit is a bigger deal than you might believe. The good news is that you have many choices now to pick out from as your replacement for your AC unit. If you need help in making a decision, an expert can help you find one that best serves your needs.

The split system is the most common type of AC unit, which contains the condenser coil outside and works with an evaporator coil inside of an HVAC unit indoors. These units are often best used in homes with already established ductwork, and the market already has units that are energy efficient. In some places the weather is not as warm, in fact it can get colder. In these areas what is very popular is heat pumps, which contains a geothermal variation, which is actually geared towards use in the colder places and colder temperatures.

Homes without ductwork can get a ductless mini-split system that uses wall mounted blowers in the individual rooms. These systems can help diminish costs if certain rooms needn’t waste time with cool air. But, if you want to cool the whole house more often, it could cost more than an HVAC unit.
