  Repair or Replace?

Should you repair or replace your air conditioner, heat pump, furnace or boiler?

 When something breaks down, it's tempting to go the quick route and pay for repairs to get it up and running again. That quick-fix may seem the least expensive route now, but it may not offer the most value in the long run.

Q When to Repair you air conditioner?
The bullets below may help with your decision:

  • Old air conditioning equipment becomes expensive to repair and offers no guarantee that additional problems are not close behind.
  • If you plan on moving soon, you may not get your investment price from a replacement air conditioning unit when you sell.
  • A replacement that involves other trades may be cost prohibitive. In rare situations, a new air conditioning system can require significant remodeling.
  • The system has been trouble free thus far and looks to be mechanically sound still.

Q When to Replace your air conditioner?
The bullets below may help with your decision:

  • If the equipment has reached 6 years old be careful not to throw good money after bad with repairs.  The average life span of an air conditioning unit is 6 to 12 years.
  • If the system is older than 12 years, major improvements in efficiency could be saving you BIG money. Super efficient, modern equipment can save $1,000 or more per year.
  • If you are not comfortable. Today's modern air conditioning comfort systems can virtually eliminate hot and cold areas, high and low humidity, bad air quality, high utility bills, noisy indoor and outdoor equipment, and much more.
  • If your system does not have variable air flow. Variable air flow is the key to comfort. New systems keep the air moving, adding to comfort and helping save money.
  • If you are concerned about break downs. When an old system fails under the intense summer heat, a replacement air conditioner can easily be a week to 10 days away
  • If family members have allergies, asthma or other air quality health concerns. Indoor air quality can be improved throughout the whole house by 100 times with today's high tech IAQ technology and air conditioning products.
