How do I know if I should repair or replace my air conditioning?

As time goes on, air conditioning systems need to be repaired and, sometimes, replaced. If the air conditioning is acting up and you’re wondering whether it’s time to get a new one, here is a quick formula you can use: Age of System x Cost of Repair.

If your total is UNDER $4,000 it is time to repair, but
if your total is OVER $4,000 it is time to replace!

We recommend replacing at this point because that high repair cost would be better invested in a new, energy efficient AC unit that will even save you money over time — possibly up to 20% savings on your electrical bills. If you’re unsure of what’s the best choice for your home or business, give us a call. Our expert technicians know Fredericksburg and will be happy to let you know if it’s better to repair or replace, and they can even help show you the long-term impacts of your decision.

Air Conditioning Repair Cost
AC repair costs can vary widely. This figure generally depends on a few key factors:

  • Type of fuel. Natural gas-powered or propane models tend to be slightly more expensive to repair than electric AC units, no matter the source of the problem.
  • Age of your AC unit. If your AC is an older model, it will likely be much more expensive to repair. You might even consider replacing it altogether instead.
  • Type of unit. Finally, of course, your AC repair costs depend on what type of system you have.

When we complete work, either residential or commercial, we insist that the customer ask as many questions as he or she needs. We want each property owner to feel informed and in-the-know about the workings of air conditioning. Some of the common questions we get include:

What regular maintenance do air conditioning systems need?

As for regular maintenance, for both those things you can do yourself plus the tasks a technician must do, there are some consistent things that must be accomplished, no matter what. First, you need to regularly check the plugs and ducts that come to and from your air conditioning. Ensure these are tightly in place. Additionally, changing your filters monthly is key to breathing healthy and fresh air – this is one home maintenance task you should not prolong.

Why do I need to change my filter regularly

The fact of the matter is, when it comes to your air conditioning, your filter acts as a barrier. The filter collects dust and debris that is brought in through the air. Filters prevent allergies and sickness from becoming an everyday occurrence in your home.

How often should I have maintenance done on my air conditioner?

You should have maintenance checks completed seasonally. This ensures that your system is geared up and ready to go for the next major weather change.

How do I know if I should repair or replace my air conditioning?

If your AC unit is 10 years old or older, it’s probably time to look at replacing your air conditioning. You’re approaching a time when the money you’ll invest in keeping your older unit up and running will quickly exceed the money you could’ve invested in a newer, more energy-efficient unit. Not only that, but when used correctly, an energy-efficient unit can save you almost 20% on your utility bills. If you have questions about replacing your air conditioning, give us a call. We’ll be happy to help.
