How Do I Know If I Should Have My AC System Repaired or Replaced?

Learn how you can tell if you should repair or replace your heating and air conditioning system.

AC System Inspection

It is time for your spring heating and air conditioning maintenance check. Though you’ve been doing a fantastic job remembering to change your filters regularly and staying on top of all required air conditioning maintenance, your air conditioner still needs repairs every summer.

This happens to most people when their air conditioners are getting older. There comes a point when air conditioning unit repair or air conditioning compressor replacement isn’t enough anymore, and it may be time to consider air conditioning replacement.

How do you know when you have come to the point of complete air conditioning replacement? There are a number of warning signs that will crop up to let you know it’s time for a new HVAC installation, and here are the questions you can ask yourself:

  • Are you in need of frequent air conditioner repairs? One of the most obvious signs it’s time for air conditioning replacement is the need for constant air conditioner repairs, especially when those repairs get progressively more expensive.
  • How old is your air conditioner? The most common reason people need air conditioner repair happens to also be one of the simplest. Your air conditioner is just old! Most air conditioners are not designed to last more than about 10 years. Once your air conditioner gets much older than that, you will need to consider a replacement sooner rather than later.
  • Is the temperature in your home inconsistent? If there are rooms in your home you can’t seem to keep cool, while others are too cool, you may have one of three problems: air conditioner malfunction, poor insulation, or issues with duct work. Insulation and duct work issues can be repaired by a qualify technician, but if you are dealing with a system malfunction, it’s time to consider a new system.

While it may cost more money for a new HVAC upfront, you are saving money by eliminating the need for continuous repair costs. Replacing an aging and worn out air conditioner can actually have a number of benefits, including increased energy efficiency, improved indoor air quality, and reduced carbon emissions.

If you are still unsure about whether to replace your air conditioning system, just compare how much time it would take before a new air conditioner pays for itself when it comes to energy and repair cost savings.

To gauge the condition of your existing heating and air conditioning system, schedule an inspection with a highly trained professional at Morelli Heating and Air Conditioning.
