To replace or not to replace your AC unit is the question that homeowners must ask themselves at some point. Replacing an AC unit can be pricey, so you may want to opt for repairs where you can. However, there is a point where repairs will not benefit your AC unit any longer. Eventually, your AC unit breaks down completely.


Signs You Need a Repair

Not all AC problems have to be spotted by an electrician. You know your AC unit well. If you notice any of these signs, be sure to give us a call.

Strange Noises

If your AC unit makes a loud noise, there could be a loose part inside. A quick visit from one of our friendly technicians will quickly rectify this.

Poor Air Quality

Are you and your family suffering from allergies? Is there more dust around your home? Your AC could be clogged up with dirt, pollen, and debris. As it continues to operate, it will likely spread the unwanted particles through your house, causing allergies. Your air filter may need to be replaced. We can provide step-by-step instructions if you need assistance with replacing your air filter.

Inaccurate Temperature Readings

If your AC unit is giving inaccurate temperatures, there may be something wrong with your thermostat. Our technicians can either fix thermostats.

Other common signs include:

  • Leaking
  • Bad odors
  • Physical damage
  • The system keeps turning on and off


Signs You Need a Replacement

With most of these problems, there can be a solution. However, if your AC unit is older than 10 years, it might be time to replace it. After the 10-year mark, AC units require more frequent repairs.

If larger components within your AC are causing the main problem, the cheaper option would be to replace your entire AC unit. For example, if your car’s engine has given up, buying a new car might make more sense than replacing the engine.

Another reason you should replace your AC units is the increase in energy usage. As your energy gets older, it uses more energy to maintain your home’s comfortable temperature. Not only is this costing you unnecessary money, but it is also harmful to the environment.

How to make the decision?

Our skilled technicians can discuss the pros and cons of an AC replacement. They will also explain the costs that are involved with an AC replacement. However, the final decision stays with you. Once you have all the facts, we will give you time to decide. If you have questions during this process, feel free to ask our friendly technicians. They are ready to help you whenever you need them. Installing a new AC unit is a big commitment. However, it is also a significant investment.
