Weighing the Cost: A/C Repair vs. Replacement
Let's face it. If your air conditioner is more than 10-15 years old, it has worked very hard over the last decade(s) to keep you cool. Some of you may be facing the big decision of whether or not to repair or replace your old air conditioning unit.
There are many reasons why you may not want to try to get away with a quick repair. Before you make any hasty decisions, take a look at our list of reasons why it may be more cost-effective to replace your air conditioner this year:
The Future Of R22 Freon
Costs for R22 have skyrocketed, making leaky A/C coils an expensive fix. R22 has been phasing out in the United States since January 1, 2020, making old air conditioners with this refrigerant obsolete.
Multiple repairs made on your system could be more costly than labor costs to install an entirely new heating and cooling system!
Peace Of Mind
Old HVAC systems have a more likely chance for continued breakdowns leaving you with more stress, unwanted A/C repair bills, and continued discomfort.
Get more even temperatures throughout your whole house with a new air conditioner. No more sleepless nights in stuffy, muggy bedrooms!
You'll have better energy efficiency with a new A/C, lowering your utility costs.
