How do you decide between repair vs. replacement?
Unfortunately, there’s no specific response to this question.
There are reported cases of some unworthy service providers tricking homeowners into purchasing a new system when their old system is still fixable. So, what do you do in such kinds of situations?
Don’t settle on the decision of a single professional, especially when you don’t trust their feedback. Instead, you can ask a contracting company specializing in air conditioner services; both repairs and replacement.
You can consider their input since they won’t sway you on the wrong course. Ultimately, you’ll have to go with the decision that makes sense to you.
For better judgment, consider:
- How much is the damage?
Some problems are easily fixable. One way of finding out the intensity of the damage is by having an air conditioner inspection from a professional.
- What’s the age of your system?
An AC unit lasts for 15 to 20 years, so if your system is more than 20 years, and it’s having problems, the best thing to do is have it replaced.
- What’s your AC’s current condition with respect to maintenance history?
Air conditioner maintenance plays an essential role in the efficiency and life expectancy of your system. If it has been well cared for, it may surpass the manufacturer’s scheduled expectancy.
