When Should You Repair Your Air Conditioner and When Should You Replace It

Your air conditioning system is working away through another Columbus summer and all of sudden your cold air stops blasting. You call an air conditioning expert to come over and inspect your system and by the time it’s all said and done you’re going to have to pay a steep price for the repair. So when do you surrender and just replace your current A/C equipment? 


Clearly the older the system the more it’s likely to malfunction and lose efficiency. Air conditioners over nine years old are actually much less efficient than the more recent energy-efficient models available today. Additionally, if your system is more than 14 years old, odds are you are going to invest more money over time to keep it functioning than if you just bought a new, energy-efficient A/C system. 


To keep on topic with the above theme, ultimately it’s going to cost more to buy parts and repair issues than it would to just invest in a new AC system. Another issue to note is R-22, the common refrigerant for old air conditioning equipment, is being withdrawn from the market for the safety of the environment. If your air conditioner was assembled before 2010, you will most likely see a jump in the price of your refrigerant until you replace your equipment. 


Science is always improving and with that comes more energy-efficient AC equipment. New equipment tends to cost less to use because they are capable of cooling the home more efficiently, lowering your utility bills – and who doesn’t like that?
