Air Conditioning System – Repairing VS Replacing

August 2, 2016

If your air conditioner suddenly stops working, it doesn’t necessarily mean you need to replace your system. Rather than burning a hole through your wallet, call on the professional services of Winters® Home Services to do a full inspection of your system. We’ll determine whether you need an entirely new system or a repair.

Below are some things you should take into consideration when trying to determine if you need a new system.

The Age of Your Air Conditioner

As the air conditioner ages, it’s more likely to lose its efficiency. A system that is over a decade is much less efficient than a newer model. You could possibly end up paying more money in the long run rather than splurging on a newer system. If you have an extremely old model, then you’ll most likely need it replaced.

Investing in New Parts

If you find yourself constantly investing in new air conditioning parts and repairs, consider purchasing a new system. $40 here and there will surely stack up over time. The refrigerant, R-22 which was commonly used on older models is no longer used. So if your system works off of R-22, you will definitely need a new air conditioner.

Lack of Efficiency

With the constant advancements in technology, newer air conditioners are much more energy-efficient. Newer equipment generally costs less because they can reduce your cooling bills.
