To Repair or To Replace?
If your air conditioner is giving you trouble, you may wonder if repair or replacement is necessary. Certain issues can be resolved quickly with an inexpensive repair. However, there are some situations that warrant replacement over repair.
How do you know when your air conditioner is past the point of no return?
Consider the following criteria:
Since an air conditioner’s efficiency only lasts about 10-15 years, you may want to consider replacing it over repairing it if it is nearing the end of its life span. Age isn’t the only factor for deciding what to do when your air conditioner needs repair. However, upgrading may be more prudent than pouring money into a unit that won’t last much longer anyway.
AC Repair Cost
Most AC repair needs are fairly simple and straightforward. Their cost is usually worth it to help the unit last several more years or more. However, certain repair needs such as a condenser replacement or coolant line leak repair may be more trouble than they are worth. Installing a brand-new condenser in an old air conditioner would be like putting a new engine in an old car. Upgrading it all at the same time means you will get the most out of your unit from the start.
When it comes to your air conditioner, cooling repair may not be the only thing putting a drain on your budget. Your monthly bills may be much higher than normal due to an inefficient unit. The longer it has to work to cool down your home, the more money you will spend on utilities. A newer unit can help you save money in the long run by avoiding yearly repairs and paying extra on your utility bills each month.
AC Unit Size
Perhaps your unit has never satisfied your comfort needs. Or maybe you noticed that your house isn’t cooling as it used to after a recent addition. If this is the case, your air conditioner may not be the proper size for your home. A qualified expert can measure your home, performing a Manual J load calculation to show you the best cooling options to meet the demands of your household.
When in doubt, always have a professional come take a look at your unit. They will be able to explain what it will cost to repair versus replace and help you decide which is best for your home.
The best way to help your air conditioner lasts as long as possible is with a yearly AC tune-up. Continual maintenance will help you avoid costly repairs and help you keep track of when you will need your next upgrade. They can also help you maintain efficiency and lower your cost of operation throughout the summer. Remember to change out the air filter every couple of months to get the best indoor air quality and airflow efficiency from your system.
When Should You Call for Air Conditioning Repair/Replacement?
Sometimes an air conditioner will give out with no warning. Other times there are subtle signs that the end could be near.
Call a professional technician when you notice any of the following:
- The unit is not turning on.
- Airflow is warm, not cool.
- Rooms are experiencing uneven cooling.
- The temperature on the thermostat doesn’t match the indoor environment.
- The air conditioner is constantly kicking on or never turns off.
- There are musty or burning smells blowing through the vents.
- There are loud banging, screeching, or knocking noises coming from the unit.
- The unit is leaking coolant and/or water.
When you hear banging or clanking coming from your air conditioner, turn it off immediately and wait for expert repair services to come to check it out. Running your unit with a loose or broken part can cause further damage to your unit. Musty smells could be damaging for your health and cause severe allergy symptoms while your air is on. Remove the smells, bacteria, allergens, and excess dust lurking in your system with a professional and thorough duct cleaning.

Do You Know Your System?
Most people inherit their heating system when they purchase their home. It’s not necessarily the model you would have chosen, maybe doesn’t provide ideal comfort, and probably wastes a great deal of energy.
If the system was installed ten, twenty, or even thirty years ago, it is most likely over-sized, inefficient, lacks safety features, and was not installed up to local codes. Waiting for these systems to completely fail before upgrading, can be a costly mistake.
A new, energy-efficient model can actually pay for itself in reduced operational costs, suffer far fewer repairs, and is covered by a warranty.
Through our partnership with the leading names in the HVAC industry, AirMax offers a wide range of affordable and satisfying heating solutions, including many ENERGY STAR-rated models. By answering your specific requirements to the ideal size, style, and type of equipment, AirMax will get top value for your heating dollar.
