Should I Replace or Repair my A/C System?

July 13, 2017

The summer is at its hottest and your air conditioning system is trying its best to keep up. What happens when its best just isn’t good enough? Repairs can be costly, but so can replacement. Consider the following when deciding which option to choose for your A/C system:

Should I Replace or Repair my A/C System?

How major is the A/C repair?

The cost of and time needed to make the repair to get your A/C system back up and running are major factors to consider. Every family’s budget differs, but if the repair is over $1,000, it might be a more solid investment to replace the A/C system. Repairs that are under $1,000 that are needed on newer systems are more practical than system replacement.

How old is your HVAC system?

If your system is over 15 years old and has a major issue, spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on repairing it might end up being a waste of money. The system may be nearing the end of its life and will likely need to be replaced in the coming years, so it’s silly to spend that much money on it when replacement is inevitable. Newer systems will likely have parts that are still covered by the original warranty, making A/C system repairs less costly and more reasonable.

Is your current A/C system efficient?

Consider the efficiency of your current system. Depending on when it was manufactured, your system may have a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating in the low teens. Systems manufactured today have ratings in the low-to-mid 20’s! The more efficient your system is, the lower your monthly energy bills are. Upgrading to a high efficiency A/C system can sometimes be a smarter idea than repairing an old, outdated system with a low efficiency rating.

What does your HVAC technician recommend?

When you choose a reliable and trustworthy HVAC company in Maryland to service your A/C system, you can guarantee they will recommend only what is in your best interest when it comes to repairs or replacement. They can help you find out the age of your system and let you know how efficiently it is cooling your home, and will provide a professional and educated suggestion on whether a repair or a replacement is best for your AC system.
