Here are a few things to consider when deciding between repair or replacing your air conditioner:
- Age of the air conditioner: The average lifespan of a cooling system is 15 years. With regular professional maintenance, the unit should last you upwards of twenty years. However, we often recommend replacing units that are over ten years old with a new, more energy efficient model. The higher SEER and lower monthly bills quickly recovers the investment. You can also use the 5,000 rule to make a determination. If the age of the air conditioner multiplied by the repair cost adds up to more than $5,00, it’s better to replace.
- An abundance of repairs: If you’ve been faced with a steady stream of repairs, it might be time for a replacement. An air conditioner that frequently malfunctions, fails to sufficiently cool the home and causes constant disruption can be more of an expense and aggravation than its worth. Even minor repairs add up. Failure of components such as the compressor or condenser are often a good reason to look into a new model.
- Energy efficiency: Cooling units ten years old or more typically cost more to operate than a modern, high-efficiency alternative. While the investment into a new air conditioner is considerable, the upgrade can save you $200 annually on energy bills. There’s also some additional perks such as variable-speed motors, scroll technology, smart thermostat compatibility, zone control and dehumidification.
