Many property owners often struggle when it comes to determining whether they should replace or repair their A/C units. The situation is often made worse given that property owners may often get incorrect information from their friends and colleagues. Given that buying a new A/C unit can be quite pricey, we have put together some factors that you should consider when you have to make this decision.
It is important to note that any A/C system can be repaired. However, the more extensive the damage, the more costly the repair process will be. What this means is that this decision is less about the technical aspects of A/C repair, and more about the financial aspect of the process. Like most equipment, A/C units get to a point where repairing them makes less financial sense than seeking A/C replacement services.
When it comes to the age of your A/C unit, you should consider replacing it if it is more than 15 years old. A/C units are typically designed to last anywhere between 15-20 years. Beyond that timeline, they don’t operate as efficiently as they used to, and it might be cheaper to replace the unit than to repair it.
If you face ever-rising A/C repair costs, it might make sense to replace your A/C unit with a new one. This is especially if you face frequent breakdowns. However, this comes with a caveat. Frequent A/C breakdowns can be caused by other factors as well. For example, the quality of your A/C repair services matters. If the repair work is not been done by an expert, then your perfectly good A/C unit may keep breaking down. Try switching your A/C repair service provider before giving up on the unit.
If your A/C energy bills keep increasing, it might be time to replace the A/C unit. This is after ascertaining that the inefficiency is not being caused by a technical fault. When A/C units age, they operate less efficiently and one of the ways to detect this is through the unit’s energy consumption.
If your A/C unit is not cooling or heating your home as it used to, it might be time to replace the unit. If you are sure that the unit is in perfect working condition (i.e. no faults) and there is a significant drop in performance, then you should consider replacing it.
The decision on whether to repair or replace your A/C unit is never an easy one. While replacing the unit can be expensive, it often proves cheaper in the long run, especially if you are replacing an old unit. This is because modern units work far more effectively and are more energy-efficient. However, before you make the decision to replace your A/C unit, get an A/C expert to assess the old unit. This way, you can eliminate any possibility that the problems with the unit are not as a result of a technical fault.

Abraham A/C is 5 star all the way. From the first phone conversation with Claudia to the final clean up after installation, Adam and his crew were professional, prompt and courteous. The estimate was fair and reasonable compared to the others I received. I highly recommend Abraham A/C.

Absolutely love this company! My a/c unit had an issue and Abraham sent someone over that day. Claudia whom handled my call was sweet and professional. The technician Adam was great..poor thing went on to my roof in a rain shower to check on the unit with no complaint. He was very thorough and serviced the unit rather quickly. Overall price was lower then I expected. With all the rift raft out there, I was very happy I chose to go with Abraham. Thank you!!
