Is it Better to Repair or Replace Your Broken Air Conditioning System?

Air Conditioning System

There are many things to take into consideration when deciding which option will better serve you. It’s not always an easy decision to make. It’s important to take your time and consider the pros and cons for your exact situation.

The first thing you’ll want to look at is the age of your air conditioning unit. If it’s more than ten years old, it’s probably time to really consider getting a new unit. They simply do not function as well as newer models. There is a good chance that the SEER rating is below the current standard, which means your unit does not have the energy efficiency that it should. A more efficient unit will certainly save you money on your monthly electric bill.

Have you spent money on repairs before? If you’re spending money every spring or summer on repairs, it may be a better option to use that money to buy a new system instead. Even though it will cost you more up front, the amount saved in monthly bills and repair cost may cover the cost.

If there is a lot of dust in your home, it could mean that there is a problem with your air conditioning system. Your ducts may be leaking and taking in particles and blowing them into your home through your air vents. Not only is it a pain to have to dust all the time, it could have negative impacts on your health.
