Repair or Replace?
Sometimes, it makes sense to repair your equipment as opposed to replacing it. But will a repair be all you need to keep your equipment running, or will it just serve as a quick fix and leave you sweating in front of the fan within a few days?
The reason for either solution can vary–let us help you make the right decision to keep you and your family comfortable!
Repair your system if:
- If it’s still under warranty.
- A regularly maintained system under 10 years with no major repair history.
- A regularly maintenanced system over 10 years with no major repair history.
- If you have a good or high efficiency system with no major repair history.
- Good operating condition, low utility bills and you are under budget constraints.
Replace your system if:
- If over 10 years, consider a replacement or at least the budget for an energy efficient system.
- Any system underperforming in terms of efficiency due to age and deterioration should be considered for replacement.
- Any system that hasn’t been properly maintained and/or with no major repair history should be considered for replacement.
- Systems that encounter major component failure should always be considered for replacement.
- Air conditioning systems with R-22 refrigerant should be considered for replacement because of the EPA’s ruling to stop production of the ozone depleting chemical.
